When I woke up, I felt dizzy, weak, and had a headache, but my sore throat was almost gone. I puked in the toilet almost 6ish times (TMI I know) Is there a way to stop throwing up?


Hey girl, try small sips of ginger ale.

Thanks Meghan, Only problem with that is, we cant really afford that for something that will probably be gone by monday. The doc would probably say its nothing, because i looked and so did my mom, and there wasn't much out of the ordinary there. Any other tips? :o

Hey girlie,

I would just make sure to get plenty of water and other clear liquids and try to get enough rest!

Hi! I have a really sore throat. I mean, REALLY sore. Nothing helps. Not a thing. Not medicine, or fluids, or drinks with vitamin c, or throat drops, or anything! I've been trying to sleep, but it keeps me awake! What do I do??

Hey girlie,

If nothing over the counter is helping you, I would talk to your parents about scheduling a visit to your doctor to get a professional opinion!

So my mom made me take decongestants last night and I really couldn't fall asleep because i was too jittery, and today I'm still really jittery. Is this normal?


Hey! the only way to really feel reassured is to talk to your doctor about all of these questions Smile To be honest, that's what we mods just have to tell you guys when you come to us with any health concerns. You may very well be fine, but since we're not doctors and we can't even see you face to face, it's not for us to tell you what's fine and what isn't. You know your body. Trust your instincts and talk to your doc!

So I have a huge problem...I have major knee pain and I've told my mom aboutt it but she never does anything about it,I'm afraid my knees might buckle and I'll fall while playing basketball or when I'm skiing or when I'm paying field hockey. What should I do? Please respond Smile thanx

MOD! Please respond! I'm afraid I'm too skinny; I'm 14 (15 in a few months), 5'3", and barely weigh (edited by mod) lbs. I always feel hungry, yet I eat as much as (if not more than) everyone else. Somtimes I feel dizzy or get headaches, or sometimes I feel so weak that it hurts to move. Could there be something wrong with me? Or is this just the effects of high metabolism? Please help, I'm scared!!!


Hey girl,

This sounds like you have a high metabolism, but if you have a high metabolism you need to make sure you're eating throughout the day so you don't feel dizzy or weak. If you have any questions or concerns and you feel weak/sick, you should absolutely ask your doctor! They're the ones who have been educated and can give you suggestions about how to avoid this - like eating filling meals, if you're at a healthy weight for your height, etc. <3 Trust them and ask ALL questions you have!

MOD MOD MOD!! okay thanks so much. And are thongs bad for you my friend told me that, like you can get an infection but I keep it very clean down there, so I should be okay right?? Thanks again Smile

Yep, you should be just fine Smile It's smart to mix it up by not wearing thongs all the time and always cleaning "down there" at least once a day. But lots of girls and women wear thongs and don't have any probs!

okay so yesterday I bought two thhongs, and they arevery appropriate, one is plain gray and the other is plain black. I wear alot of yoga pants and stuff and I was tired of pantylines and I have tried seamless underwear but they didn't work at all. So my moms out of town and I told her I got 2 pairs of underwear for my sweatpants, and she was just like what else did you get and ignored what I said. And I don't want to lie, so how should I tell her I got them????? Thank you Smile

Hey girlie,

You didn't lie! You said you got two pairs of undies to wear with your sweatpants...which you totally did. If she sees them later, you can explain the pantyline thing and how they're great for that, but I probably wouldn't keep bringing it up. She could've always asked "Oh, what kind of underwear?" but she seems like she accepted it and moved on, so you should too Smile And like you said, they're very appropriate, so it's not really a big deal!

When I have a cold, I have it forever! Any advice on what to do at school? I can't bring a humidifier...

by marissa13_3 on 4/6/2012 1:40:59 PM


this is gonna sound really gross, but whenever i wax my underarms, its like all bumpy. Not huge bumps, but you can definatly tell. how come my underarms arent smooth? is there any way i can make them smooth? o and i dont like shaving or using Veet coz i have black, so it makes my underarms look super dark no matter how good i do it. so yah, whys it all wierd and bumpy and how do i make my underarms smooth?

Hey babe,

This really isn't gross, it happens with all of us.  Unfortunately, there really isn't any way to change that.  You're welcome to try exfoliating with a scrub a few times a week, that might work.

I need help/advice on my eyes. I have this problem where all of a sudden half my eye would be red as if irritated (like the veins and everything). Like from the circle part and so on pretty much replacing the white area in the eye. Its not pinkeye because after some time it goes away and then weeks or a few months later it comes back (usually not in the same area though). Like in the other side/eye. I wear contacts but their not due for a change (since I get a notification of when to change them). I don't really have allergies, but is it possible that, that could be it? Or is it something else? I've tried putting some cold water on a pad and it helps a bit, making it less red-but more like a pinky-but it also stings since my mom says that its because its irritated.
I just want to know why do I keep having this and what can I do about it? Also if I need medical help or something of the sort. Please help!


This sounds like a problem that needs to be addressed by a doctor. Is sounds like you might have something wrong that needs medical attention. You probably need a special type of eye drops or a different brand of contacts. I might also be possible that you have an allergy as you suggested. You need to see a doctor next time this happens so he/she can evaluate it.

i was wondering, if my mom got her period when she was 10, and i am almost 12, and i have small breasts, my hips are getting wider, and i am getting the normal hormones ( breaking out, discharge, mood swings,) will i get my period soon? i am also getting lots of headaches and abdominal pain.

Hey girl,

What age your mom was when she got her period doesn't affect you, because it depends on a lot of factors including size, so don't base your off of your mom's! If you're a pretty average size and in good health, you could be getting your period soon, but there's really no way to tell for sure! If you're getting headaches and pain, thougn, you should talk to a doc to see what's up.

I have a crush on a guy, let's say his name is bob. Someone told "bob" I like him, but I don't know who! Now I am afraid to trust any of my friends in fear that they were the one who told.


Hey! just ask your friends who it was. the ones you can trust will tell you the truth
