    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,

    I also have experienced the numbing sensation in the back of the head or neck area. It only happens when I am laying down awkwardly with a wadded up pillow under my head. To correct this I purchased a memory foam pillow which gives both my neck and head better support when I lie down. It does this by conforming to the shape of my head rather than putting pressure on certain areas of my neck and head. I hope this is helpful.

    thank you so much for your kind suggestion. I was sitting upright in the middle of the day so was especially odd to me. But i very much appreciate your thoughts and reply.
