Discuss with your doctor. ...Read more

AARP: Aarp has strong connections to insurance programs selling policies and other things which no doubt make them significant income. They are an occasionally effective lobby for some issues.

A: A convulsion is a type of seizure. Not all seizures are convulsions. Some seizures involve staring spells (petit mal or absence seizures). Some seizures involve certain almost purposeful activity that is the same each time. Some seizures can involve only one limb without loss of consciousness. A grand mal (also called major motor seizure) involves loss of consciousness, rigidity of the body followed by jerking motions of the whole body. This is followed by a period of unresponsiveness called the post ictal state. There is a type of convulsive seizure that happens in young children with fever.

I have chest pain all day everyday because I have g.e.r.d but why does my chest hurt worse at night?
Gravity: If chest pain is primarily due to GERD, then it is common to have worse pain at night. The reason is gravity. More stomach acid can leak out of your stomach into your esophagus causing burning. Also, the valve between your esophagus & stomach is less competent (more leaky) due to change in pressure gradient on either side due to lying down position & gravity. Recommend GERD medicine before bed. ...Read more

Sensory Processing: This is called "sensory defensiveness" & we all have a degree of it (e.g. Nails on a blackboard) but he needs to be seen by a development specialist if there are any associated problems (delayed or loss of speech, excessive anxiety, preferring to play by himself, avoiding eye contact, etc.). If there are no other issues, it can be treated by an "occupational therapist" who works with kids. ...Read more
My daughter-in law doesn't believe in shots so my grand baby is almost 3 and has never had a shot how serious is this?
Possible risk: She doesn't know it but is relying on herd immunity, low risk to her child due to others being immunized which will prevent the spread of some infectious disease. Recent outbreaks of whooping cough should give her pause. Most anti-vaccination ideas are based on junk science - for instance the paper connecting vaccination with autism was faked, and withdrawn. ...Read more

Maybe max'd already: Most people reach maximum height in their late teens. Without nutritional problems or chronic childhood illnesses, height is mostly based on genetics and parental heights. Aside from eating right, exercising, sleeping well, and being happy, there's not much a person nor his doctor can do to increase height. Check on one's growth chart at the pediatrician's office for the past 2 years' check-ups. ...Read more

Infection: At age 24 benign prostatic hypertrophy is not a consideration, so the most likely diagnosis in your age group would be either a urinary tract infection, or infection or imflammation of the prostate. Either could be caused by allowing yourself to get dehydrated concentrating the bacteria in your urine. Try drinking cranberry juice and loading up on non caffinated liquids. Otherwise go to your doc. ...Read more
