    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,

    GSP...eight y/o...eating and drinking well, and looks heavier..Not choking ..but coughing...like he trying to get something out of his chest/throat or esophagus...scratches his throat on left side , as maybe he feels something in it..skin is irritated...my question is could he have exhaled a foreign body into lungs and trying to cough it out? Or would that have passed through his intestines...could something be enlarged in throat although he eats and drinks well?...he is also agitated and growls at times which is new for him...thing he needs an egd or chest X-ray? Which first since money is an issue.....thanks for your help
