use UNION ALL:
select * from a_messages where profile_id='username' 
UNION ALL
select * from a_messages2 where profile_id='username' 
order by message_id desc

note: UNION ALL will not try to do an implicit DISTINCT, so unless you really want to do that, ALWAYS use union all.
and order by is only at the end of the query, so you cannot do the "per" table, but only once per "result", so the comment before mine is unfortunately incorrect in that regards ...

Not necessarily a mistype.

UNION returns a distinct result set (does not show duplicates).
UNION ALL returns all rows, regardless of duplicates.

Depends what the original poster wants in the result set, I suppose :)
