Regardless how deparate you may be for answers and solutions for your concerns, please be especially wary of professional advice and/or referrals offered on the boards:
First of all, there is no way to verify any poster's actual certification as a medical professional.
Also, NO professional has permission to offer advice on the boards except as peers, and if doing so very likely are seeking patients or are selling services/products. Since this is against the policy of Health Boards, it indicates the dishonesty of those trying to get free advertising on the boards and taking advantage of posters that have revealed their problems.
Please be very careful! The boards are for support and to share experiences and ideas, but all information should be checked out with known board certified professionals before being accepted.
Thank you and enjoy the boards!
