    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!

    My four year is complaining of ear pain with loud noises. When I run his bath water he covers his ears and says that the noise hurts. When legos were dumped out on the floor he covered ears complaining of pain. Today, we were outside when an ambulance went by and he cried that the sirens were hurting his ears. Could there be something wrong?

    You son could be ultra sensitive to noises, but I would have a hearing screening done and talk to his pediatrician about this.

    Here is a link I found interesting.....

    I am not sure if this is what your son has, but thought it an interesting read all the same.

    Take care,
