Peripartum cardiomyo: You need to have a cardiologist and follow his/her direction. If you have not been seeing one, you should remedy this. Sometimes the condition goes away but more often it requires long term attention.

Will my son's strange reaction following antibiotics last.

Yes: Allergic reactions to antibiotics, ie hives can last up to two weeks after stopping the medication. Antibiotic induced diarrhea can improve soon after discontinuing the antibiotics or linger. There are other nonspecific rashes that are not an allergy but an interaction between the antibiotic and a virus that can last for days. Behavioral reactions to colorings or flavors abate qickly.

It depends: Why do you have cardiomyopathy? It can be from a diseased heart due to lack of oxygen (blocked arteries), it can happen as a side affects of some drugs, it can happen as the result of some type of infection even a cold type virus. So why it happened, and how severe it is, will help to determine the likelyhood, or unlikelyhood of there being a progression to heart failure.

Infant vomiting: Vomitting infants can be serious as it would not take long for them to get dehydrated. Vomiting can be a sign of other illness such as upper respiratory infections, ear infections and not just GI illness, best to have infants evaluated as soon as possible.

A 39-year-old female asked:

My 17year old son just had a 12 lead ECG done it showed t wave inversions in ii, iii, avf & v4. Could the barium from an ugi series cause this?

Nonspecific: T wave inversion may be part of a normal ekg and has to interpreted by a doctor. Inverted t wave is normal in iii and sometimes other leads without meaning anything alarming. Have the doctor let you know what they think. The ekg interpretation can change with age as well so you need expertise to read them at this age.
