    Is there a way to find a complete member list which is not sorted by posts, or likes or reviews? It's hard to find people the way it is now.

    Yes. I have been diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy by a neuro muscular specialist.

    @China i think you put your comment in the wrong thread. There is a poll about neuropathy. This is just about forum information.

    I have this condition too. How do you cope with this pain? I'm finding it very hard. I've just joined, I don't know if I'm doing the right thing here or should I be posting else where?

    @magsz hi. You're in the wrong spot for this.

    I suggest you go to the Symptoms and Testing forum. You can start a thread there about neuropathy pain.

    More people will see it there.

    Is there a way to not see the "Welcome to" the forum thing on the top of every page? (Im on a mobile device, if that matters). Thanks

    Can you answer this?

    @goldenapple Stavya is the tech guy for the site.

    Hi @goldenapple,

    Currently there is no way to hide that notice on the top of every page.

    I found a way to do this. We've made live an option to dismiss the notice. If you don't want to see a particular notice anymore you can click on the "x" on the top right of the notice box.

    We are going to have other notices. One of them which will list new content or other items of interest on the Forums you might want to consider keeping because it will change over time.

    The introductory notice you probably don't need and I'm trying to figure out a way we can just make it disappear for everyone who's been on the Forums for a week or two.

    What forum do people ask about doctors? I went to the Reviews page but an error message showed. I'm finding this site hard to navigate.

    You can ask about doctors in any forum but probably the most applicable would just be the Treatment-General subforum.

    There are only a few reviews in the practitioner resource section, but the main forum is the place to ask questions and get feedback.

    Hope that helps! Let me know if you have more questions.
