A 33-year-old member asked:

See her doctor: Torticollis is a condition in which the head is tilted, often due to neck pain/spasm in the muscles that move the head. However, it should not cause chest pain. Please take her to the doctor soon - immediately if she has difficulty breathing, worsening chest pain, pressure, pain in her left arm, sweating - or looks like she does not feel well.

Depends on age: If your son is an infant/young child, he will likely tolerate it very well. If older, he may experience more pain. Make sure you have pain medication at home (such as ibuprofen if over 6 months) and ask the doctor to calculate the dose based on his weight. They will likely have you leave a dressing of for a few days - and then coat it with a lubricant until it is fully healed. It heals quickly!

Genetic disorder: This is an inherited disorder that affects the lungs and liver. People often show the signs of the illness between 20 to 50 years of age. The lung symptoms are wheezing, difficulty breathing. The liver symptoms can look like cirrhosis and include yellowing of the skin. Follow closely with his doctor and avoid exposure to people who smoke.
