Xray for child shows moderate amount stool in her colon. Does this mean constipation even though she has daily regular soft bowel movements?
Hard to say: The kid who makes 8 oz of poo/day but empties only 7oz, will eventually become backed up. Stool that is silhouetted by small clusters of bowel gas, reveal gas production by bowel germs. If that silhouetting shows the colon to be distended, and full, it may relate to slow transit constipation. This is a common problem in kids and often takes years to resolve. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Is palilalia more often related to tourette's or autism spectrum? My child has asd and multiple motor tics started palilalia 6+ months ago.

Formal comparative incidence studies appear to be unavailable at this time. Perhaps one of my colleagues in research will comment further. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: As with many tests, between episodes the testing can appear normal, but the seizures may still return. Eegs are often normal between seizures, but several things can be done to increase the likelihood of seeing a seizure, such as sleep deprivation before the test.

What is the question: I cannot figure out what you are asking? Does high fiber cause more frequent bowel movements? Often yes, but not in all people. Is the question if i'm having frequent bm's should I eat more fiber? Maybe. The goal for daily fiber is 25 g per day or more. Check your fiber intake (count for a day or two), then increase as needed to get over 25 g per day. Most people in U.S. Are way below that. ...Read more
Have symptoms of irritable bowel Recently underwent colonoscopy which came negative. However multiple times toilet, incomplete bowel evacuation feel, soft flat stools persist. Request advise.
Irritable bowel: If your gastroenterologist is comfortable that enough work up has been done to rule out other causes and feels that IBS is the culprit, it is time to start trying to treat it. Adding extra fiber to the diet is a good start. There are medications such as anti-spasmodics which tend to work well in some situations also. Talk to your G.I. doctor about what is the next step. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Testing is easy. ...Read more
Pillcam = many small + large bowel AVMs. Yet 2 colonoscopies earlier that year showed none. Could sudden lesions b related to mast cell disorder?
AVM's in colon: Intestinal arteriovenous malformations are possible to see with a camera, and may have been missed at colonoscopy, which looks mainly for masses not flat lesions such as AVM's. Such can appear quickly, but usually only secondary to bowel inflammatory episodes. It depends on whether you were symptomatic when you had either the camera or the colonoscopies ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Tics? If all the : Studies were normal, remember that 11% of children with ASD have tics. The latest studies show that kids with adhd who develop tics on the stimulants methylphenidate (concerta) ; amphetamines usually have an underlying tic disorder, so the meds unmask tics rather than induce them. Compulsions? Maybe, but usually not myoclonic. Adding Intuniv for adhd may reduce them, if they are complex tics. ...Read more

Have you had a colonoscopy on a regular basis? If not, it's time for one. ...Read more
