Stress (Definition)

Stress affects most people in some way. Acute (sudden, short-term) stress leads to rapid changes throughout the body. Almost all body systems (the heart and blood vessels, immune system, lungs, digestive system, sensory organs, and brain) gear up to meet perceived danger. These stress responses could prove beneficial in a critical, life-or-death situation. Over time, however, repeated stressful situations put a strain on the body that may contribute to physical and psychological problems. Chronic (long-term) stress can have real health consequences and should be addressed like any other health concern. Fortunately, research is showing that lifestyle changes and stress-reduction techniques can help people learn ...Read more

My son is 13 years old and he has horrible chest  pains.. He is also around 230 pounds . What can I do to ease his pain ?

Doctor to evaluate: Anybody who describes his symptom as "horrible chest pains" needs to be seen at the emergency room right away, meaning a trip by ambulance. "horrible" pains have a serious cause, so a doctor's exam is needed. If the cause turns out to be less worrisome, because the pains were not as horrible as first described, that would be good news. Better to be safe than sorry! ...Read more

My 10yr old has been coughing for 2 weeks now. Ran a 101 fever today. The cough sounds bad and she complains about her chest hurting & being tired.

My 10yr old has been coughing for 2 weeks now. Ran a 101 fever today. The cough sounds bad and she complains about her chest hurting & being tired.

Time to see doctor: Prolonged coughs can be worrisome, and one would need to be evaluated to see if there are asthma symptoms or perhaps pneumonia. When there is a new fever, and the cough "sounds bad", especially with "chest hurting", pneumonia needs to be checked for. If one's doctor is not available in such a situation, a children's Urgent Care or an Emergency Room can help. ...Read more

My 15 year old daughter has servere scoliosis, 54 degree curve. She has abdominal pain, what can we do?

See MD: Scoliosis by itself doesn't often have symptoms due to the bones. In teens I always check for constipation as the cause for abd pain but since there are so many different organs in your abdomen your best way to be sure is to have her examined by her MD to determine cause and best treatment plan. http://www.spine-health.com/conditions/scoliosis/scoliosis-what-you-need-know ...Read more
