    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,

    Can't place palms up

    When I try and place my palms up and my arms are straight I can't do it. The best I can do is have my palms face each other like I'm clapping. Other people have tried to roll them over and unless I roll my whole body I can't get my palms up. This has never been a problem but I'm 17 and beginning to wonder how I will get change in a drive through window. It is also affecting my techniques in karate which is just frustrating more than anything else. What could cause such a thing? I have never broken a bone. My dad and brother have the same problem but it isn't nearly as bad for them. Has anyone ever even heard of such a thing?
