What happens if child throws up medicine? Do you give him more?

What happens if child throws up medicine? Do you give him more?

Basic rule: I generally follow a simple rule on oral medicines. Any spit-up within 15min where I can see or smell the med I will repeat the full dose. 15-30 half, after 30 none. Sometimes it is better to give the stomach a chance to settle down rather that repeating immediately. ...Read more

What does it mean to throw your back out? Does it just mean that you hurt your back and can't move or something else?

What does it mean to throw your back out? Does it just mean that you hurt your back and can't move or something else?

When: When people say that they have 'thrown their back out, ' what they really mean is while performing a specific activity (such as gardening, twisting, sneezing, or bending) they experienced an onset of severe back pain.
The fact is, 'throwing your back out' is a figure of speech. While there are several causes of this sudden back pain (for example: muscle spasm, arthritis, pinched nerve or a herniated disk), this sudden pain actually remain a mystery.
The condition of back pain can be treated in many ways including chiropractic care (patients often experience rapid improvement), pain injections, physical therapy, otc medications, massage and surgical intervention.
Each person's pain experience is very personal and differs from person to person. Your doctor can help you determine the specific cause of the back pain (via xray, ct, mri) and prescribe a treatment regimen that will work for you.
In the meantime, some things you can do to promote back health is to work towards a healthy weight, lose excess weight, wear comfortable/supportive shoes, ensure your work area/computer is ergonomic and promotes good posture, stretch and exercise regularly and go easy on your back and use good technique when lifting (bend at knees, not the hip). ...Read more

My son is 13 months old and he throws up like, when he cries hard or sometimes with thicker foods. I'm not sure what's going on?

Delayed emptying: He may have slow emptying of his stomach so when he cries or has thicker foods that are hard to digest they sit longer and any bearing down movement (crying or taking a bm for example) may cause him to reflux or throw it up. A visit with your doc will help sort it out. ...Read more

Could you throw a two month old in the air?

Could you throw a two month old in the air?

Not recommended: Babies at this age do not have good neck and back control, so they may be injured from this sort of activity. Also, 2 month olds need to feel secure and stable. They startle and become upset when they lose that feeling of stability. It would not be at all fun for the baby. I wouldn't recommend it at this age. ...Read more
