Recommend health/medical website?

Can anyone recommend a health/medical website that has a very active user forum/community?

I've searched google quite a bit, and every forum I find seems dead. It's not required, but it might help if it has an athletic slant to it (muscular/bone, injuries, tests, rehab, etc).

There are a few active ones out there which seem to attract the hypochondriacs in the crowd.

I go to look something up from time to time, hoping for an informative article or similar, and end up having to weed out all these forums to find something with real information rather than the, "I'm so worried. I haven't been able to sleep in weeks and I've been crying every day. I've got a pain, could it be cancer?" posts.

Just type in a symptom and you should be able to come with a bunch of those sorts of forums.

Mayo Clinic has been good. WebMD has had good information. IMO you don't want a forum. I've visited them and the amount of off-the-wall and simply false information is pretty overwhelming. Unless you just want to dive into the realms of medical fantasy, fine then.
