If you have any problems replying to messages or starting your own then please see our help section.

If you are worried about your health and may need to see a professional, then you might want to read our factsheets about visiting a GP or a Dentist.

As well as sharing concerns on the forum you could also NHS Direct's website or phone them on 0845 4647.

Please bear in mind that it's impossible to diagnose medical problems accurately online. Sharing experiences and supporting each other is valuable and useful, but you should still speak to your Doctor about anything that is bothering you.

Our Autism helpline is also available if you need to call. Tel: 0808 800 4104 (Mon-Fri, 10am - 4pm). This number is free from landlines and most mobiles.
