    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,

    My son has started hyper ventilating

    My son is 8 yrs old and has started hyper ventilating. Mainly if he gets hurt badly or if his father is getting on to him. He does it to the point that his hands draw inward and he can not talk. Now my husband does not want to discpline him because he is afraid he will do that again. Is this normal or is it a sign of something else? What can we do to prevent it

    Here is an article I found that may help http://www.hopkinschildrens.org/tpl_rlinks_nav1up.aspx?id=2102

    I would do some more research and possibly set up an appt. with a really good, smart Child Psychologist.

    Take care!
