Common in toddlers: Toddlers and babies have immature brains. They are prone to having hiccups more than older children and adults. You can have the doctor check for any other causes, but it is likely normal. I have never seen hiccups from an enlarged spleen. I think theoretically it could irritate the diaphragm and cause them though. ...Read more
Isnt a TSH of 0.99 a little bit low although it is in range?And is a burning feeling in the thyroid area a common symptom in thyroid disorders?
Doubt thyroid: Reference ranges are set so that several percent of healthy folks fall outside. A tender thyroid suggests DeQuervain's but burning / paresthesias less so. Look for some other cause of your illness. I believe we've met before -- Remember Sjogren's and Hashimoto's as causes of CNS vasculitis / myelin loss. Good luck on continuing workup. ...Read more

Many Women feel: Shortness of breath during pregnancy, and that can happen even in early pregnancy due to the effect of HCG which puts women in a mild hyperthyroid state. If you are anemic, this symptom will be more pronounced. Your blood volume and plasma volume expand about 1/3 during pregnancy to accomodate fetal circulation, so your exercise tolerance should decrease as you progress and fetal demand increases. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Getting a normal period(flow is normal and good, duration also) after 1week of intercourse.Is it a sign of miss-pregnancy ??
Some thoughts...: A woman cannot get her normal regular period and be pregnant at the same time. However, she can get pregnant a week or two after her normal period. If she has some spotting or light bleeding that doesn't look like her normal regular period, she can check a urine pregnancy test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened) to see if she is pregnant. ...Read more

4-6 words: At 15 months of age we expect a child to have 4-6 words. They generally can follow simple commands, such as 'go get your shoes,' and can point to 2-3 body parts (eyes, nose, ears, belly button, etc.) Of course all children develop at their own pace. But a 16 month old who is not close to meeting these milestones should be evaluated by their doctor. ...Read more

Toddler gets hiccups a lot. Is it normal? I read somewhere it could be a symptoms of spleen enlargement and now i'm nervous.
Many Possibilities : Normally the diaphragm contracts and expands under one's control to aid in filling the lungs with air. Hiccups occur when the one's diaphragm contracts involuntarily. The most common cause of hiccups while sleeping goes undiagnosed. Other conditions that could cause this symptom are sleep apnea, laryngitis, diabetes, kidney disease, stroke, alcoholism, and certain medications. Source mayo clinic. ...Read more
Yes: Babies normally do seem to hiccup more often than older children do. If the hiccuping is too much, say more than 20 minutes a day for more than 2-3 days a week, the parent should talk to the doctor to see if there is a medical reason for the hiccuping. If a normal baby has a few minutes of hiccuping every couple of days, that is likely normal behavior, and will decrease as the baby gets older. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

HICCUPH: Sudden irritation of diaphragm is the main cause of hiccuph. In your baby the cause can be from swallowed air, feeding too fast, too much intake in each feed or gastro-esophageal reflux disease. Feed every 3 hours in upright position before s/he becomes too hungry, so that baby doesn't eat too fast, burp up in the middle and after feeding, use tummy time. Talk to the pediatrician in next visit. ...Read more

Why do I hiccup once and at random times after every meal I ate? Is this normal or there is something wrong?
Could be normal or : there is something wrong. You do not want to irritate you diaphragm. Many conditions can cause this irritation and result in hiccups, including eating too fast and swallowing air, chewing gum, smoking, eating or drinking too much, anxiety and stress. Could be also more serious causes such as strokes, brain tumors, damage to the vagus or phrenic nerve. See your doctor if persist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
37wks preg, my boy often hiccup. 3-4 times in a day. Is it normal? What's the cause? Am worry. Pls help. Tq.
Common issue: Hiccups are felt due to a wave of energy moving thru the breathing muscle similar to the one that drives the heart beat. Babies often have it late in pregnancy and continue off/on for months after birth.Some theorize a role of the stomach rubbing the diaphram that stops as the baby grows longer & stomach rubs it less.Reguardless, in 3 decades I have found nothing that works consistantly to stop it ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
At least 3 times a day I experience a sudden gasp of breath/silient hiccup. It happens while I am awake, not excerting myself. Is this normal?
Lack of oxygen?: This can sometimes be a reflex that occurs when your body senses that it's lacking oxygen. In worst case scenarios, this could be due to a heart or lung condition, or could be due to anemia which would have its own host of causes. May be fine, but would be prudent to investigate this with your local doctor in that light. ...Read more
