Child health, when a child has rapid sweating and heart beat?

Rapid Heart Beat: When discussing a cardiac question, the age of the child is always important. However, persistent rapid heart rate accompanied by sweating is something that should be evaluated no matter what the age of the patient. You should discuss this with your doctor. Then a more thorough patient history and family history can be taken and the appropriate evaluation and treatment done.

I was abused as a child could it be causing my health problems now?

I was abused as a child could it be causing my health problems now?

Yes: Absolutely. I see quite a few folks who were abused as children come to me with emotional problems (anger, post traumatic stress disorder, etc). But there may be some physical repercussions - sexually transmitted disease, rectal/vaginal tears/wounds, broken bones, etc. It will all depend on what type of abuse you experienced.

Child mental health problems. How common are the real psychiatric problems, not autism or add?

Child mental health problems. How common are the real psychiatric problems, not autism or add?

Wow, where to begin?: I'm not sure what's "not real" about autism or adhd; but, in prepubertal children, there's also anxiety, sometimes depression, & learning disabilities. After puberty, depression and anxiety increase markedly, as do eating disorders, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder. Not counting adhd (8-10% of the population), in any one year, serious other illness affect about 10-12% of the child population.

While in labor my child was crowning and the nurse held my leg shut cause my doctor wasn't there. Now she has lot of health problems could this be why?

While in labor my child was crowning and the nurse held my leg shut cause my doctor wasn't there. Now she has lot of health problems could this be why?

Maybe, maybe not: "health problems" is I bit too broad to be specific. If the infant is still attached to a well functioning cord & placenta, the time in the birth canal, though stressful, does not necessarily lead to health problems. If the cord or placenta were not functioning well, it should have shown up durin monitoring & lead to c secton.
