Im forteen and I want to grow a beard?

Do it!: Grow the beard! it may be appropriate to discuss this with your family and hear what they have to say. If it gives you a sense of well being to have facial hair, gives you confidence, takes away anxiety and generally help your overall sense of who you are, then go for it! think of the down side first. How will this affect me negatively. Employer? Girlfriend? Family? Think, then do!

It hurts when I produce faces is there something I can do?

Pain with BM: Dyschezia/painful bm's often are the result of insufficient fiber and fluid in one's diet. High-fiber fruits & veggies &/or fiber supplements (fiberchoice, metamucil, etc) + adequate fluids will soften feces & ease bm's. Stool softeners (not laxatives) may be needed initially until increased fluid/fiber is working or if you're on narcotic pain meds. See doc if persists or bleeding occurs.

When a doctor uses the term elf-like facial features, is there a specific meaning?

Elf: Many genetic conditions have typical appearances. Elf-like facial features can describe someone with williams syndrome. They have small upturned noses, wide mouth, small teeth with wide spacing. They also have characteristic starburst appearance to their eyes, making them look like they are twinkling. While this description is used to easily describe without details, it does not make a diagnosis.
