5 year old is complaining that her heart hurts.  Sometimes after physical activity and other times not.  Should I be concerned?

See your doctor: Is it really her heart or is it her chest? Most "heart pain" in children is really musculoskeletal chest wall pain and is not a concern.

Many argue that it's not the number, but the BP medicine itself. ...Read more

Possible: cardiopulmonary bypass, anaesthesia, blood transfusions may all have cognitive consequences. Your child is still young enough that the brain should have the opportunity to heal. I would encourage you to get a neurologic evaluation as soon as possible, as well as seeing a pediatric behaviour specialist to assess the extent of the problem and treatment options ...Read more
