Is Child Behavior Worse Than It Was Years Ago
I'm 27 years old and my memory seems much, much worse than it was a year ago. Should i be concerned?
Stress?: Stress in a person's life is one common factor that impacts memory. There are of course many other potential causes. If you are experiencing a number of stressors consider tai chi, meditation, yoga, acupuncture, stress managment classes or cognitive behavioral therapy to help handle it. If not stressed, consider an eval by your physician. Take care. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How likely is it for a kid with ASD to regress at age 4? Son has been making huge progress since diagnosis 14 months ago but last few days scare me.
Pervasive Disability: I hate that you are seeing regression the last several days in your child with ASD, keep working hard on social skills training and his therapies, speech, OT, even PT in certain cases. Intensive Social Skills training helps teach your child the behaviors that come natural to the rest of us "neurotypicals". Could he have an emerging illness? Sore throat? Fever? Bad day at school? Earache? ...Read more

My husband went through chemotherapy one year ago. His memory, though never great, is so much worse now. I'm wondering if it could be a result of the chemo or could it be something else? He is 62 years old.
Can be due to chemo: There is an enlarging body of evidence that chemotherapy can cause cognitive decline in a number of patients. Sometimes the decline is reversible. It's been called "chemobrain" or "chemofog". The exact cause isn't known but chemo does cross the blood brain barrier. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My child is barely 2. He only gets a pacifier at nap/bed time for past yr. Will it harm his teeth or palate development if he has it another year?
Deciduous Teeth: Limited to nap and bedtime as a "sleep transitioner" to help soothe him to sleep - not at all. Children usually spit these out after some time asleep anyways. If the habit extends beyond bedtime and into later years, then yes indeed it can affect eruption patterns and lead to flaring of teeth. A pedodontist would be the best to confirm this for you. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

My mother just had cataract surgery last month she is 22 years older than me. I was diagnosed with cataracts today and am a bit frightened.
Second opinion: Almost all of us will get cataracts if we live long enough. Some can get them earlier than others and the only proven risk factor for age related cataracts is sunlight exposure. Since you seem on the young side, get a second opinion with an ophthalmologist. And some opacities listed as cataract may be lens opacities that are stable and not need treatment. Removal, however, is senign and successf ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My dad has been smoking for over 30 years now. If he quits now, would it make a difference? His lung is already damaged, right?
Its never too late : Its never too late to quit smoking. The longer he remains without smoking - the better. Lungs can heal over time, although chances of lung cancer never go down to completely the same as if he never smoked, they can dramatically decrease. Also - if he ever needs surgery - he will do better after surgery if he is not actively smoking than if he is. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
