Can babies experience withdrawal symptoms after birth if mother drinks caffeine every single day during pregnancy?

Depends: on amount of caffeine mom is ingesting. I once saw an infant whose mom consumed 4 liters of Mountain Dew daily - this infant had significant withdrawal. On the other hand, I see plenty of normal newborns whose mothers still had one cup of coffee daily. Good luck! ...Read more

Get checked: It's most likely an ankle sprain but could be a fracture. It is probably best to get checked out and possibly an x-ray to see what is going on which will guide treatment and recovery. ...Read more

Can someone tell me how to cope with depression while i'm a full time single mother?

I know it must be: Very demanding to juggle your responsibilities as a single parent. However, it is really important to take time out to care for yourself. At the minimum - would encourage some form of counseling. Evaluation by your physician or a psychiatrist will help to determine if you have clinical depression and if psychiatric medications are indicated. Take care. ...Read more

My mom has had intense chest pain above her heart for the past two days, but today it's keeping her in bed and she can't move. Should i call 911 or a doctor? She is 46, single mother of 5, bartender. Every movement is labored and i'm really worried. She a

There : There are not many symptoms listed here. If she already has a cardiac history with severe chest pain and inability to move; i would recommend (based on limited facts) calling 911. Symptoms of a heart attack can include: chest pain; chest tightness or squeezing; shortness of breath, increased sweating pain or numbness radiating down the arm (more often left than right) and nausea. Some people dismiss the pain thinking it is indigestion. There can be pain in the top midline of the abdomen, as well as vomiting. Pain may not present in the chest but instead can be felt in the upper back, head, jaw or in the teeth. There may be a generalized feeling of unwellness and fatigue. One fourth of people have heart attacks without chest pain. ...Read more
