Need more info: this is uncommon to have recurrent vestibular neuritis, its a dx if exclusion, did you get ruled out for other causes like a brainstem mass with mri brain (with contrast) or vestibular migraine (by hx). consider getting hsv antibody titers checked and id specialist to treat for it more aggressively if you're positive since hsv reactivation is a common cause of recurrent vestibular neuritis.

How can I help my baby after he's had bronchiolitis?

Dr. Evelyn Hurvitz

Bronchiolitis: Bronchiolitis is caused by a virus, most often rsv, or respiratory syncitial virus. The viral infection results in inflammation, or swelling, of the lower small airways. The swelling of the tiny airways results in rapid breathing, cough and wheezing. Symptomatic treatment includes clearing the nostrils of mucus, maintaining hydration, and making sure the child has enough oxygen.

No: The nuchal fold was developed to be assessed at 11-13 weeks, not 20. Even when it is increased, it doesn't mean the baby the baby has down's, just that there is increased risk it could.

At a nuchal scan-which gave a "low risk" result-part of the membrane had come away from my uterus. Is this common?

Yes: Its not uncommon to see, on sono, something called a sub- chorionic hematoma. A small amount of bleeding has occurred under the membrane called the chorion and causes a separation. It usually resolves without problems. It has, occasionally been associated with abnormal early bleeding and the threat of a miscarriage. Usually everything is fine.
A 31-year-old member asked:

Went to dentist and had local anaesthetic applied. How long before I can eat and feel right?

Depends on amount: As far as when you can eat it depends on the type of restoration placed. As far as feeling right, it depends on how much was given, location of of injection and your metabolism rate. Usually i tell my patients the felling should last 2-3 hours. If you are more active, this can shorten this time, the type of anesthetic also matters.
