Crying (Overview)

Crying in infancy is described as a loud, high-pitched sound made by infants in response to certain situations. Infants have a cry reflex that is a normal response to some stimuli, such as pain or hunger. Older children and adults cry for emotional reasons such as pain, fear, sadness, or frustration. Premature infants may not have a cry reflex, so they must be monitored closely for signs of hunger and pain.

Ok my daugther been on vyvnse for add for two weeks.When she takes a weekend break she gets very ill an mean an starts crying an very moody?

ADD Weekend break: Why is she even taking weekend breaks. Weekend brakes are not necessary with vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine). In her case, it's actually painful for her to be going through these episodes and the best thing would be to have her take it seven days a week. That's a decision you will make in conjunction with her psychiatrist. I do not put any of my vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) patients on weekend breaks. ...Read more

Hi, my 5 yr old son wakes up crying with an itchy bottom. He's been treated for worms and has been taking movicol for the past month. No pattern. Thx?

Hi, my 5 yr old son wakes up crying with an itchy bottom. He's been treated for worms and has been taking movicol for the past month. No pattern. Thx?

Look at skin: If he's only been treated for pinworms once it might indicate a treatment failure. Local irritation from retained waste or tissue paper on the skin is also a possibility. Has the doctor examined the actually area or have treatments been prescribe based on symptoms? Look at the skin where it itches - is it inflamed/red? Is there a rash? If it looks totally normal then I would still consider worms. ...Read more

Once i've tried  a "freshly graduated" therapist, she wasn't really a help except that I was crying n talking.. Shouldn't b there methods for treating?

Yes, there are ways: Sometimes it is not easy matching a patient with the right style of therapist (meaning a doctor of psychiatry, a doctor of psychology, or someone with a masters of psychology). The first couple of visits might be "get to know each other" visits. One's primary care doctor may know of therapists who have been helpful with his other patients. Ask for a recommendation from the primary doctor. ...Read more

Which treatment works the best and fastest for crying baby?

None: Crying is not a disease, a lot of normal babies cry significant amount of time per day. However one has to ensure that baby is not hungry, does not have wet dirty diaper and does not suffer from any sickness for example: colic, allergies, diaper dermatitis, meningitis and many others.

My gf is crying over my drug problem again. how do I stop this habit!?

Treatment programs: Most people with long-standing drug problems (depends somewhat on the drug, which you don't list) cannot handle it all by themselves. There are many chemical dependency programs - you can google that name and your location and can find programs near you. Medical detoxification, psychiatric evaluation, medication for underlying problems, counseling, all may help you get back to a normal life. ...Read more
