    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,

    CHRONIC PAIN FROM DEMYLINATING NEUROPATHY

    I SUFFERED FROM SEVERE RAW BURNING PAIN IN MY LOWER BUTTOCH AND DOWN THE BACK OF BOTH LEGS FOR 17+ YEARS. MY MEDICATIONS WERE CHANGED NUMEROUS TIMES, BUT GAVE NO POSITIVE RESULTS.

    THIS PAST MARCH I HAD A SPINAL CORD STIMULATOR IMPLANTED. MY DOCTOR SAID THEY LOOKED FOR SOMEWHERE AROUND 75% PAINFREE. WELL, I AM NOW 100% PAINFREE. I CONSIDER IT A MIRACLE. YOU CAN'T IMAGINE HOW IT FELT AFTER BEING IN CONSTANT PAIN FOR SO LONG.

    I WOULD RECOMMEND THAT ANYONE THAT SUFFERS FROM CHRONIC PAIN ANYWHERE ON THEIR BODY, RESEARCH THE SPINAL CORD STIMULATOR.
