Is Laughs A Symptom Of Normal 07 Wk
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
My 14 month old son keeps having episodes of shaking, seems to occur when a meal is a bit late or a snack missed is this normal?
Concerns about low: blood sugar? Maybe, but there are other issues to be considered. Behavior associated with frustration. Has he had these episodes when not hungry? How long do they last? Is there any evidence of alteration in alertness, is he developing well? Are his milestones age appropriate. Please feel free to continue discussion online at www.healthtap.com/dr-nnebe. Take care. ...Read more

29w3d pregnant. Baby moving rather excessively and having several episodes of hiccups a day. Is is this normal or a sign of cord compression.
Not necessarily.: Gold standard is a rectal temperature of 100.4 or greater for the definition of "fever" in infants. Fever is merely a symptom and sometimes time will determine how the thermostat of your infant will behave-better/worse. 99.3 could be a normal variation or a sign of an illness. Other symptoms associated to it will remain important: intake, output-wet/dirty diapers, could sx's, behavior, sleep. ...Read more
How is complicated grief defined? Lost mom to brain cancer abt 9 yrs ago & still have occasional sad times as a result. Is that a normal response?
Sounds normal: This is pathological if and only if you find yourself unable to function because of your sorrow. If the latter is the case, a short course of cognitive-behavioral therapy or similar insight-type therapy may be in order. Since you recognize this may be problematic, you have insight and motivation, and your prognosis would be good. ...Read more
Laws of genetics: When a woman with Down's Syndrome forms gametes (unfertilized eggs), all the chromosomes except #21 will split evenly. Since Down's Syndrome means three copies of chromosome 21 (by dehfinition), the chromosome cannot split "evenly" - half will have 1 copy (normal); the other half will have 2 copies (Down's syndrome carrier). These will pair with 1 copy (usually) of Chromosome 21 from the father. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

If I have a TSH level of 2.59 but a T4 level of 0.96 is that still normal? My doctor said I'm within all normal ranges. My FT3 is 4.2
Thyroid Tests: The T4 is in teh low normal range. However the TSH and T3 (liothyronine) seem to be fine. I usually look for antibodies to the thyroid and also symptoms to interpret thyroid normalcy. Classic medicine is only about TSH and T4. So if you have symptoms more may need to be done. ...Read more
Is peak flow always an indicator of how bad your asthma is? Mine is in normal range but my breathing feels shallow. Congestion maybe?
Usually: Peak flow is a good indicator of how much "obstruction" there is in your large airways, caused by inflammation. Normal means your asthma is well-controlled. I would need to know what you mean by "shallow" breathing. Your doctor can listen to your lungs to make sure air is adequately penetrating all the lung fields, and to listen for wheezes, and to look for other causes of your symptoms. ...Read more

Good luck to her. ...Read more
