    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!

    Downward motion problem

    Every time I walk down stairs, a ramp, bend down, or bounce with my 3.5 month old she turns bright red, clenches her fists by her head, and stops breathing for 5-10 seconds then her eyes are full of tears. She has been doing this for 2 months. At first I thought she was trying to poop. Then I noticed it's only when she is going in a downward motion. She will do it if she is moved downward in her carseat and she did it in a friends swing. I have stairs in my house, I have tried to hold her different ways but she does it EVERY TIME! If I stop and she catches her breath she will do it again when I continue to go down. I've tried walking slower also.
