A 38-year-old member asked:

Should I worry that my baby is not always at the same percentile on the growth chart?

Dr. Evelyn Hurvitz
Pediatrics 37 years experience
No: Babies often switch curves on a growth chart, depending on their activity levels, the time of day the measurement is taken, and the genetic potential for growth they are given by her parents. As long as your baby continues to grow, the growth curves are just guides.

A 35-year-old member asked:

Are epidurals and spinals the same thing?

4 doctor answers9 doctors weighed in
Dr. Megan Bird
Obstetrics and Gynecology 19 years experience
No: While they may feel the same to you, they are a little different. An epidural puts continuous medication in a sac around the spinal cord, providing longer, lower level numbness. Spinals put the medication in the fluid directly around the spinal cord just once. Epidurals numb a little less but longer, spinals numb a lot but only last a shorter period of time.

Can someone get a burner and concussion at the same time from basketball?

Dr. William Goldie
Pediatric Neurology 48 years experience
Yes: Sudden stinging down arms or legs is often called a burner. Trauma to nerves in neck or shoulder can do this. Trauma to the head with confusion, nausea, and alteration in consciousness can be considered a concussion. Both types of symptoms may occur during a major trauma event.
