    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

    in the past week my feet got numb and today it's up to my waist and fingertips. I see my doctor tomarrow but I want to know is what I need to have happen to figure out this issue. Any doctors out there? Anyone with the same problem?

    hello, N --

    did you see your dr? is s/he a neurologist? what did s/he say?

    and, most important, how do you feel about what s/he said?

    Hi numb 2010 and susiemargaret,

    Please repost your discussion starter and post reply as a Discussion. Mouse over the orange Post Now button and click on the Discussion link. It is not possible for moderators to move a message thread that is posted as a tip to change it into a thread that is posted as a discusison.

    If you both repost your messages as a discussion thread, then this particular tip thread can be removed from public view.
