    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!

    It took over 1 and /2 hours to go to sleep even with Elavil to assist with going to sleep. restless leg syndrome present, broke off a large molar, found increased N2 activity with decreases in REM and N1 and N3. Needless to say, my brain is not shutting off to rest and restore. I am taking a medication SSRI, I also suffer from post traumatic stress syndrome and chronic pain due to a fracture at C2 along with arthritis pain in my neck and knee. Very frustrated with the extreme fatigue. any suggestions.
