A 40-year-old female asked:

is it normal for 8year old daughter not to be able to sit still and be jumping over the couches?

Internal Medicine 27 years experience
Variants of normal: Children have a wide behavioral range and the majority of them need permanent attention. Sometimes they have physiologic needs that they might not be aware of, such as being hungry or needing to use the bathroom or having symptoms, such as fever or pain that might make them intensify their activities to a level that becomes hard to control.

Dr. Florence Nwofor
Specializes in Pediatrics
Yes: Several issues of concern will need to be addressed; age of your child, environmental exposures to include daycare attendance and secondary smoke, growth and development, and your child's ability to ward off infections. A visit with your pcp will allow a thorough assessment to determine the cause and consequently the appropriate management to promote your child's health.

My 27 year old daughter has a very bad case of lymphedema. What can I do to help her cope with her condition?

See a specialist: Lymphedema nurse specialists can be unbelievably helpful in providing emotional support and counseling, education about skin care, and also in providing treatment for lymphedema with massage and wrapping techniques. Even chronic, massively swollen limbs can see dramatic results with non-invasive limb reduction techniques.

The best treatment for lymph edema is manual lymphatic drainage and complete decongestive therapy. This is the best long term method to manage the swelling.

No: There is no cure for learning disabilities, which includes dyscalculia (difficulty in understanding, remembering, or manipulating numbers or number facts such as multiplication tables). School psychologists and/or private testing psychologists can evaluate a child to see what his strengths and weaknesses are, and then make recommendations for educational therapy to help overcome his weaknesses.
