    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,

    Dizzy and exhausted

    My16 yr old son had a headache for a few days then got so dizzy he could do nothing but lie vertically. We had to have an ambulance bring him to the hospital. He was dehydrated from throwing up every tmr he tried to sit or stand up. Now has been in hospital for over two days and can do nothing physical other than lie in the bed. MRI and cat scan are fine. Blood and vitals are good. ENT doctor can find no issues. Trying steroids but do not appear to have an impact.

    No sign of any arterial infection. Doctors have contacted CDC with no information that has helped

    Any suggestions on next steps? Any prior experience with similar situation?
