    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,

    I, too, am a chronic pain sufferer and fed up as well. I signed your petition; posted it to my Facebook and sent it to everyone I know. It is truly awful how we get treated or untreated, not taken seriously even when we have concrete, test results, health files bulging with proof of our illnesses and pain issues.
    I am 100 per cent behind you, it's overdue time for this to
    change. Even animals get their pain treated even when they can't talk to ask for it, as humans, we are treated inhumanely.
    There is something rotten in Denmark!
