    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,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    I have bee diagnosed with : fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, spinal stenosis and frozen shoulder. When the pain starts it's PAIN not pain. I'm confused as to what disease to blame it on. With so many that cause pain, how should I approach this and what can I say to doctor?

    Hi and welcome, yankeealleycat!

    I think you can start with our Pain Management community for some great feedback from our expert and members.

    From there, the moderator can direct you to other boards that may be helpful based on the response you get.

    I hope you find the answers you need!

    Take care,
