Family doctor: There are several medical conditions that come to mind, particularly Sjogren's syndrome especially fatigue and "brain fog". If the excess hair is new I would consider hormonal issues. I recommend a good physical and blood testing, if everything checks out these may be symptoms of depression. Your FP may be able to treat depression or refer you to a psychiatrist. ...Read more

Thanks for the: Great job you guys do. If this is just a recent problem with long hours you may be just preoccupied and can try some Benadryl (diphenhydramine) at bed for a couple days. The eye issue though may be more difficult as it may be a contact in too long, a conjunctival abrasion, viral or allergic conjunctivitis. Have dr. Rutledge or your personal doctor take a look. Try some artificial tears until then. ...Read more

Hit my head about an hour ago. It was bleeding a little bit but it has stopped. I'm not dizzy. How much longer do I have to wait to sleep?

Response: Sounds like more of a superficial event causing either an abrasion or laceration. Depending upon the size of the area, if large and still weeping, you may need help with closure. Not knowing more, tough to advise whether a doctor should be contacted. But based upon your description, would not prohibit sleep if you are tired. Do bandage area, as rebreeding could occur during night. ...Read more

Bump on head.: You can get an egg like bump when you hit your head. Blood is trapped under a tissue covering the bone. This will resolve on its own. Should be safe to sleep especially if you didn't pass out when you hit your head. If this blow to your head left you rattled or confused then have someone check on you early in the AM. They just need to see if they can wake you. ...Read more

Why is the right side of my baby's head flat? He prefers to sleep on that side. The right side of his forehead sticks out a little too.

Why is the right side of my baby's head flat? He prefers to sleep on that side. The right side of his forehead sticks out a little too.

Water balloon: If you remember, a water balloon is always flat on side it lays on. A baby's skull has "floating" bones that push away from each other as they grow larger until they are ready to knit/fuse. This makes it like a water balloon because gravity treats it the same. Your doc needs to examine the baby. Position changes and therapy can help. The issue tends to fade when babies sit up more/sleep less. ...Read more
