    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,

    I'm 16, female, and need help! My throat is hurting like crazy, I have a bit of trouble breathing, my chest hurts, my lower abdominal area hurts, I have a couple of tender, bruised lumps on the back of my head that move around occasionally and it's really all scaring me!!!! Please help me! My temperature is at 95.4 and I don't know what to do!!!!!! I can't eat without wanting to throw up because food is now DISGUSTING to me and I used to love food!
    I'm most certainly not overweight, I'm a gymnast, and I am in need of emergency help. I don't want to consult my parents because they already don't have enough money for anything and I've gone to the hospital plenty of times already for injuries and mono. Please help me!

    What would you like WebMD to do for you?...or perhaps, what do you think an internet forum can do for you?

    Since your are 16 years of age there are plenty of free clinics in which you can go see a doctor at no cost to you. But from reading what you write it does seem very serious health issues. Do your self a favor and get checked out by a MD or better yet go the the hospital. Im sure your parents are more worried about you rather than money. Life is always more greater than money. Good luck and let us know how it goes.
