Can a thoracic Syrinx be caused by an auto accident or would it be a pre-existing condition. IE accident occurred on 9/25 and then on 10/07.
Syrinx: If I am understanding your question correctly, it sounds as if you had the car accident on 9/25 and then developed symptoms on 10/7. This appears to be a rapid progression and seems unlikely that the accident caused the syrinx but it is a possibility. Another possibility would be that the syrinx was present prior to the accident and became symptomatic after the trauma. ...Read more

It is only once brain death has been declared, or once a decision was made to withdraw artificial support, that organ donation will be raised as a consideration. Though rumors abound, they are untrue. I am personally a part of "the system" and have sufficient confidence in it to be an organ donor myself. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
How can try to potty train my child (at 5yo) who's having accidents and just doesn't want to go on his own?
Assist/ Reward: One drag on toilet training is the mixed messages a kid gets if you follow him around asking if he needs to go. If he doesn't, he is sad he can't produce, if he needs to go & you are not there asking, he may not be able to hold it until you do.(again sad). If you tell him you will help, he picks the time (which is crucial)& you assist.(no sadness).A reward system helps motivate & can work overnight. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I'm going through memory loss and i don't know why. I haven't been in any accidents either. What's going on?
