What causes a child to burp excessively at bedtime?

What causes a child to burp excessively at bedtime?

First thought: Kind of uncommon question... But the first thing I thought of is "aerophagia" or swallowing air. This usually happens from anxiety, so the fact that u mentioned "bed time" is interesting (kids often get anxious). A lot more information would be needed to go thru the other possibilities. If your child being anxious makes sense then that's it. Talk to a pediatrician to see what might be the issue.

Does watching excessive amounts of tv lead to ADHD in your child?

Does watching excessive amounts of tv lead to ADHD in your child?

Unanswered: Some studies point to an association, while other see no correlation. The american academy of pediatrics warns against excessive electronic media exposure, but not because of increased adhd, but because of increased aggressiveness in those exposed to too many hours of violent video games or media.

Metadate 10mg, child is now talking excessively & more hyper & aggressive?

Metadate 10mg, child is now talking excessively & more hyper & aggressive?

Talk to your doc: There a couple of things here to consider. If your child truly has adhd, another medication may need to be tried. You might want to consider a non-stimulant, such as strattera (atomoxetine). I have also seen children misdiagnosed as adhd in whom symptoms are exacerbated by stimulants such as metadate because their underlying problem is not adhd.

My child is teething and I'm wondering if teething can cause symptoms like excessive tiredness and a hoarse voice?

My child is teething and I'm wondering if teething can cause symptoms like excessive tiredness and a hoarse voice?

Teething or sick?: Teething causes tiredness but maybe only from not sleeping or battling the pain of a tooth busting through. Teething does cause runny nose, slight cough, loose stools, some drooling, crankiness, etc. Hoarse voice might be a sore throat or laryngitis due to a viral infection. ESP if eating poorly or has a fever or other signs of being sick. Check with your doc on Monday just to be sure.

Please let me know if there is anything that can cause a woman to have a rectocele besides child birth or excesive anal sex?

Please let me know if there is anything that can cause a woman to have a rectocele besides child birth or excesive anal sex?

Rectocele: Chronic constipation or inflammatory bowel disease are also causes of rectoceles in your age group. It is important to have a complete physical exam, including a good rectal exam. Increase both the amount of fiber and fluids you consume, as even if this is not the cause of your problem, it will certainly help symptomatically.

Possibly.: There are many reasons for asthma to develop, including an inherent pre-disposition. But, in the right circumstances, second/hand smoke can certainly be one risk factor for asthma to develop. Other factors include respiratory infections, environmental allergies, occupational exposures etc.

See your doctor: Menorrhagia is the most common type of abnormal uterine bleeding characterized by heavy and prolonged menstrual bleeding. There are several possible causes of menorrhagia including: Adenomyosis Uterine fibroids Infection, tumors, or polyps PID Rather than your very recent BTL being the cause of the bleeding, it is more likely to be because of one of the above. You need an ultrasound + examination
