    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,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    Charl is in my thoughts...
    bren_bren posted:
    ...I just wanted to post and offer support to our fellow board member, Charl (Charlotte), who is about to undergo an extensive evaluation from some of the top physicians at Mayo Clinic. She has suffered from awful pelvic/low back/buttock/coccyx pain for way too long, and without a proper diagnosis.

    I just wanted to share with other members in order to encourage others to write some words of encouragement and support....if we have anyone left??

    Love ya Charl! And keep on top of those doctors and don't leave until you get answers that you can live with. Take care, Bren

    I am so sorry I have not responded to this or much of any other infomation. I still can't sit without extreme pain. Thanks to Bren for the kindness she has shown me during this most difficult time. I don't know how long this will last. My pains have grown progressively worse over the last three years, and the diagnosis has been slow in coming. I still plan to write more information regarding my treatment.
