Marriage: Everyone who is married, regardless of station in life, wishes for a loving marriage. When we fail or go through difficult times it can affect our spirits, lower our mood as our emotions connect to our brain chemistry and we start to feel low and in some cases slow intellectually.

I was born w/ no soft spot and as a result had big forhead when l was a baby and know asan adult I have no head deformaties. Do I have craniocynostosi?
Craniosynostosis: You made your own diagnosis, but its a shame that it might have not been discovered in infancy... At this point you cannot do anything to change that. The skull is formed and thats all the room you get for your brain! however, if you have neurological symptoms like seizures, learning problems (developmental delay) you probably should consult a neurologist and properly review your medical history. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›

How Far Over?: Brain damage from a fever generally will not occur unless the fever is over 107.6 °f (42 °c). That being said, if a person has a relatively low threshold for febrile seizures, it is conceivable that a lower fever could induce frequent seizures and cause problems from low oxygen getting to the brain (anoxic injury). ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
