Can women with MS have babies while on treatment or do they have to stop ?

Can women with MS have babies while on treatment or do they have to stop ?

Suggestions: Most MS drugs do have potential for fetal malformations, and are thus "teratogenic" risks. Copaxone seems safest, and Aubagio and Gilenya may be riskiest. But I would tend to stop any of the MS drugs prior to pregnancy and would NOT restart until after birth, unless breast feeding desired, which would delay restarting med. ...Read more

My child does not imitate sounds or babbles. Should I get a hearing test done?

My child does not imitate sounds or babbles. Should I get a hearing test done?

Yes: If your child is not developing their verbal skills at the expected age, they should absolutely have their hearing tested. Even though most infants have their hearing tested at birth, these tests are not 100%, and a normal test at birth does not eliminate the possibility of hearing loss. ...Read more

9.7 mnth old has a head circum. of 44cm,47.3% range on growth chart.Is this normal?She babbles,crawls,pulls self up.Not much change from 6mnth appt.

Missing information: Head circumference is normal, near average, but we need the velocity of its growth. Head growth slows normally after 6 mos., but should plot along or near the same growth curve it's always followed. Strings of babbling at 6 mos. become non-specific " da-da, ma-ma" in 9th mo. Gross motor is good. Screens are on firstsigns.org. Follow-up with pede. & MS Early Intervention Program if concerned. ...Read more

My daughter is 10 months old. Her ankles are quite stiff. Shecrawls, babbles and does everything else normally, except that she stands on the tips of her toes. What should I do?

My daughter is 10 months old. Her ankles are quite stiff. Shecrawls, babbles and does everything else normally, except that she stands on the tips of her toes. What should I do?

Toewalking: It is common for kids to toe-walk initially. The toe grasp reflex initially makes this quite normal as they learn to walk but they usually settle & walk flat footed by two.Persistence after 3 is occasionally seen & will eventually result in decreased flexibility of the ankle. Physical therapy may be needed to maintain normal tendon length & improve walking. ...Read more

My son throws tantrums and screams for no reason and sometimes it seems like he doesn't hear us calling his name and babbles that isn't understandable?

Needs an evaluation: Dr. Franklin trimm at the university of south alabama in mobile is an excellent developmental/behavioral pediatrician. It's best to get a referral from your pediatrician. Collect his school ; medical records. I, too, am curious about whether this behavior persists at school ; at home. Ask his teacher if the behavior impacts his learning ;/or peer interactions at school. ...Read more
