    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 13 year old daughter is very athletic but March 2012 she started getting weak, shaky, extreme headache and nauseous after she participated in a track meet or P.E. It happened once in the first week of March and 3 times in the first week of May. She hasn't started her period yet. I'm hoping that's what the problem is but has anyone else's child had this experience?

    This is probably due to her eating habits. It might be worthwhile reviewing what she's eating before she runs/exercises/etc. She might be worrying about her weight and started eating less ... If she hasn't cut back, try to increase the carbs in the meal before she runs.
