Can short exposure to loud music harm a 33wk fetus hearing? at husband xmas party. Music very loud & bass vibrating.10min exposure before left.

No worries: short term exposure to loud music is OK during pregnancy. At 33 weeks, there is enough amniotic fluid to be a good buffer for the sound waves. No worries. ...Read more

Standing on street. Firetruck passed. Siren loud. 25 weeks pregnant. Can it harm baby's hearing?

Water buffer/no: Your baby had the equivalent of a water barrier against the sound due to the bag of waters. This is akin to having ear phones on.No problems will arise. ...Read more

How I got Reactive Arthritis? All STD negative - 13 weeks & 6 months post expo...HIV, Syphilis, Hep, Chly, Gonnn? Expo: Receive Handjob with lotion.

How I got Reactive Arthritis?

All STD negative - 13 weeks & 6 months post expo...HIV, Syphilis, Hep, Chly, Gonnn?

Expo: Receive Handjob with lotion.

Not from handjob: Reactive arthritis results from an abnormal immune reaction to any of several infections. The most common trigger is chlamydia, but various intestinal infections also are frequent causes. Many cases occur without any known infection to start it. The hand-genital exposure you describe has nothing to do with it. Continue to work with your rheumatologist about treatment. Good luck! ...Read more

Ringing in ear after ENT removed hair from ear drum w/noyes forecps.Hurt bad jumped off table.Now he wants hearing aids?

Really.......: In my opinion you need a second opinion...... Not disrespectful to the ENT but, seems like a large jump if you had no hearing problems before. The ent's are the best at evaluating and treating ear drum problems. ...Read more

Outside watching kids sleigh ride. Neighbor smoking cigar about 15-20 ft away. Didn't smell it but worried exposed. 35 weeks pregnant?

Outside watching kids sleigh ride. Neighbor smoking cigar about 15-20 ft away. Didn't smell it but worried exposed. 35 weeks pregnant?

Don't worry: If u don't smell it you should be fine, one piece of advice from someone who has done over 5000 deliveries, do not go past your due date , new study shows the ideal time to deliver is 39-40 weeks not worth going past so you and your doctor do not have to worry about something happening to the baby when it could have already been out easy and safe to induce, 95% of my pts want induction. ...Read more

Voice pitch changing: Your question is hard to answer without hearing the sound of your voice. Perhaps this is worth speaking to a doctor in person to get advice? Surgery is an option if you desire a higher pitched voice: http://voicedoctor.Net/surgery/pitch-altering-surgeries. ...Read more

2.5 yr boy says 7 words. Has said 100.Rec. Lang. Is fine. history fam speech delay. Had glue ear. Autism r/o. Genetic test fine.Therapy didn't help. Worry?

2.5 yr boy says 7 words. Has said 100.Rec. Lang. Is fine. history fam speech delay. Had glue ear. Autism r/o. Genetic test fine.Therapy didn't help. Worry?

Hearing?: Glue ear is generally diagnosed at surgery for tubes. Did he have tubes placed? Has he had a hearing test? I would ensure hearing is normal before focusing on the speech delay. If that is okay i would be sure to get another opinion of a pediatric speech therapist and potentially a pediatric ENT doctor. Also make sure his siblings aren't "talking for him". ...Read more

Stop testing!: You have been seriously overtested, especially for HIV. The 4th gen HIV tests are conclusive any time 4 weeks or more after exposure. All HIV tests after the one at 1.5 months were superfluous and a waste of money and time. The other tests also are conclusive and also didn't need to be done a second time. No matter how high the risk might have been, you can move on without worry. ...Read more

31month boy not talkin morethan 10 sng word,normal hearin.Assesment result:Severe expressive delay no autism.Born with vacum does it damage brain part?

31month boy not talkin morethan 10 sng word,normal hearin.Assesment result:Severe expressive delay no autism.Born with vacum does it damage brain part?

Unrelated to vacuum: Generally, using vacuum to help deliver a baby's head is not related to problems the child has in development or brain function. Even with today's knowledge and technology, many cases of childhood brain problems still have unknown causes (that we may figure out in the next 20-50 years). Meanwhile, keep playing with and talking with the child, do all checkups & vaccines, and just hope for the best. ...Read more

Dignosed & treated 4 Meniere's 20 years ago, now in "remission". Vertigo stopped but tinnitus and hearing loss worse.  Do hearing aids help?

See ENT doctor: Your hearing loss may or may not be due to Meniere's at this point, and a visit to an otolaryngologist could provide audiometric testing which might lead to prescribing a modern small hearing aide. Worthwhile to get this addressed. ...Read more

Ear infection ,buzzing noise in ear ,muffled hearing but no pain ,will my hearing get better..

Probably: But would need more info. You might benefit from use of a decongestant since it is possible there is fluid in the middle ear behind the eardrum which needs drainage. If this persists you might want to consult with an ENT doctor. ...Read more

What to do if I had rubell IgG 4.83, cytomegalo virus IgG 4.64 , range negative <=0.90 , positive >=1.11,equivocal 0.91-1.10?

What to do if I had rubell IgG 4.83, cytomegalo virus IgG 4.64 , range negative <=0.90 , positive >=1.11,equivocal 0.91-1.10?

Viral exposure: Virus antibodies by IgG suggest prior exosure. If active disease the test will be positive by IgM. So previously you have had rubella and cytomegalovirus (CMV) infections. The latter can cause hepatitis. If you have liver disease you may need a DNA probe to check for viral load. Otherwise CMV is only important if you are severly immuno-suppressed like if you were to have a bone marrow transplant. ...Read more

Rubella: Rubella, also known as the german measles, is an infection in which there is a rash on the skin. You are immunized against rubella with the positive igg. The igm should be repeated and you can ask for a nasal or throat swab sent for culture. Ask your ob! did you/do you have a rash or symptoms? ...Read more
