    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,

    what community is best?

    Hello everyone,
    I am new to WebMD. I am glad to be here and think I will really find some comfort but I am not sure what community is best and how to get the best professional advice that I can.

    Besides my ongoing thyroid troubles I need some medical advice on a pain and discomfort I am having. Its a little strange and embarrassing. Where should I go and who should I ask? Where is the best place to start here?

    Thank you for your time,

    Hi and welcome!

    We're glad you found us, and I apologize it took me so long to reply to your post.

    We have a wonderful member community that may intereste you -- Thyroid Disorders Community .

    For the pain issues, I think I'll need to know what type of pain you're experiencing. Let me know, and I'll see where to best direct you.

    Take care,
