Bitten by my rabbit 7-8 days ago he's not eating and acting lethargic, getting my shots today there were mice in our house can he get rabies from them?

Rabies/MICE: Small rodents, including mice, have rarely been associated with rabies and thee have been no documented cases of transmission to humans from a mouse bite. If the rabbit is being monitored by a qualified vet, you should be okay to watch the rabbit for the 10 days to see if it becomes symptomatic. Alternatively, the rabbit could be put down and examined to se if it was infected, but very unlikely.

Give them: Clear liquids for 24 hours. Then, if doing better, advance diet to bananas, rice and toast for another 24-48 hrs, then back to a normal diet. If it worsens, or a fever begins, contact their physician.

My ten month old fell off the couch and is acting fine other than throwing up x3 after eating. No uneven pupils or lethargy. Should I go to ER?

Probably not: Falling from the couch is not a very far fall and if the child was acting normal then I wouldn't go to the ER. If the vomiting occurs when NOT eating then go to the ER.

I am female and age 43. How can I overcome my weakness and lethargy?

I am female and age 43. How can I overcome my weakness and lethargy?

See doctor: First you need to see your doctor for general exam and some blood tests to make sure that you do not have anemia, low thyroid etc. If all this is normal then the next step would be to work on your diet, exercise and mood. I recommend doing exercise like walking, biking or swimming 30 minutes daily, also a diet with lots of fresh fruits and vegetables is helpful. Lowering stress can help too.

What could be the cause of some lethargy and excessive salivation in a toddler?

Lethargy: In the past these symptoms could imply a serious infection called epiglotitis. This is caused by a bacteria called h. Influenza type b. For about 20 years there's been a vaccine for this called hib vaccine. I would worry now about severe tonsillitis.

Will lisinopril cause lethargy?

Will lisinopril cause lethargy?

Not common: Seems like any medication can cause just about anything! But statistically it's not something I run into commonly in daily practice...and I use this med a lot! Some patients feel "saggy" or run down a few hours after taking it, but usually pull out of this sensation later in the day. If this is happening then try taking the lisinopril at bedtime and see if this corrects the issue. Good luck!

How can you combat the feeling of lethargy associated with allergies?

How can you combat the feeling of lethargy associated with allergies?

Plenty of rest.: An allergic reaction is a strain on the body. The body is reacting to a substance it regards as foreign and there are many things that happen. These are stressors that use energy in the body, so the best thing, once the reaction is treated, is to get plenty of rest. If you are tsill lethargic, it might be wise to see your doctor to be sure there is no underlying problem, etc..
