    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    Find a fibro-friendly doctor, especially a Rheumatologist. I've been using a Microcurrent Stimulator to help my adrenal glands, which often have trouble functioning well in people like us. It's been giving me more energy. I also just starting taking an Ionic Mineral liquid from my doctor. It's supposed to help the stimulation come through better.

    Do you have your own machine or do you see someone who administers the treatment? I have been wanting my own machine after seeing a massage therapy who administers treatments, but I am not sure what type of machine to buy. Any advice? Thanks!
