Stress & Migraines: After your doc has examined you and let you know the status of your health some stress management training could be very helpful. Clinical psychologists often do this. See www.asch.net for licensed professionals who use clinical hypnosis and self-hypnosis training, which is another health alternative. Peace and good health.

What is a contraction stress test?

2 doctor answers4 doctors weighed in
Dr. Jeff Livingston
Obstetrics and Gynecology 22 years experience
Checking baby: A contraction stress test is done very infrequently. Oxytocin is given through an IV to cause contractions and then the fetal heart rate is monitored throughout. This is a way to assess the status of the baby. A nonstress test is a more common way of doing this. During a nonstresss test the baby is monitored without oxytocin administration.

No: Non-stress tests evaluate the baby's heartbeat. They are ordered if there is a medical complication with the pregnancy such as diabetes or pre-eclampsia or if your pregnancy goes past your due date. They are also done if you aren't feeling the baby move for more than an hour or two. If you have an uncomplicated pregnancy you will likely not need a non-stress test.

Several possibilitie: First identifying triggers in the diet or lifestyle are important as that may abort them altogether. I also suggest chinese medicine and acupuncture as I have seen headaches disappear during treatment. There are also medications that can help a great deal when one starts.. So having several options is very helpful!

Depends: Stress fractures are problematic mainly because they can be difficult to diagnose. As such, they may be initially under treated, thereby prolonging disability.
