We're happy to announce the launch of a new tool here at WebMD that we think our members will enjoy -- WebMD Answers .
While community is a place to get to know your fellow members and experts on a deep and supportive level, sometimes folks just want to ask a question and receive an answer. That's what WebMD Answers is all about.

As your member name states, you do have a lot going on, I'm so sorry to hear about it all.
You really need to talk to the doc about this as he knows your health history. Or take your medical file and get a second opinion. Someone you can talk to about the meds you are taking and perhaps find a remedy that works! You may want to copy or print your post, it might help you and the doc sort things out. I hope others jump in and support you as well here, but bottom line is you need to follow up with a doc. I'm glad you found us and I hope you get some relief soon. Please continue to check in and share.
Our Exchange Management Staff let me know that they have been trying to get in touch with you. If you haven't checked your email account you have registered with us recently, take a look in there (and possibly your junk folder) to see if you've gotten anything from firstname.lastname@example.org. If you can't find anything, they'd appreciate you writing to that address.
We are thrilled to share with you some changes that have been made to WebMD Health Exchange due to some of the wonderful feedback you all have given us.
First of all, you’ll notice that we’ve changed the top of the What’s Happening Now page so that See All Discussions, Tips, and Resources are right at your fingertips. These links will take you to our index pages, which read much more like our old message boards. We’ve also made our posting button at the top larger, and it drops down so you can choose which type of content you want to post.
You’ll also notice that we’ve added some more spacing to the posts themselves, making them less bunched up and easier to read.
AND, we’ve increased the posts per page from 15 to 30.
Along with that, you’ll see that now when you respond to another member’s post, it will say Member_1 replied to Member_2’s response. If you click on the word “response” you’ll be taken back to the original post you responded to so that you can continue reading the thread from there.
When we launched, the option to add a member story on the WebMD Moderated Exchanges was left off. That has been added back in, and you can begin crafting your stories now!
You should also begin to notice that it isn’t taking quite as long for your messages to show up. The problem has not gone away completely. Our tech folks are still working on a final fix. However, you should only have to wait 60 seconds or less to see your post appear on the What’s Happening Now feed. If you’re posting from the See All Discussions or any other index page, your post should show up immediately.
We also fixed a defect that was frustrating many of our members. After you joined an Exchange, created your member story, and then voted on a poll you would often be unjoined from the Exchange and your member story would disappear. This issue has been resolved, and you should now remain joined to the Exchange after voting on a poll.
We hope you enjoy these changes. You’ve given us some great feedback. We’re listening, and these are just the first of the fixes and additions to come. Our tech team is already working on several more changes based on your suggestions and comments.
Please keep writing to let us know what you like, what you don’t, and share your suggestions for the future.
Yours in Health, The WebMD Health Exchange StaffView Thread
