    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

    Hi purplexpoppiezx,

    Have you spoken with a doctor about the symptoms you have been experiencing? He/She will be able to best diagnose what is causing them after an examination. You may find it helpful to post your question in our Fibromyalgia Community and/or our Skin Problems and Treatments Community -- the members on these boards are may be able to provide advice and personal experience as it relates to your symptoms. To post, simply follow the above links, click on the orange "Post Now" button at the top of the page, and post your question just as you did here.

    Best wishes,
