    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,

    Gas like vision

    I have a family member that is in their mid 70s. They have been having problems with a gas like vision. It comes out of no where, everything has a gassy wave to it and at times there will be a flash of light like lightening. They just want to lay down and it usually goes away within 15-30 minutes. This problem was here and there, but now it seems to be more often. they have been to doctor and more doctors and was told to come back when it happens. It's kind of hard when it happens at 830pm on Sat. and on Sundays. Any advice would be AWESOME.
