My Child Suffers From Histaldia Has Been For About Six Months Will This Go Away
Controversial: I'm curious who has diagnosed your child w/ histadelia? Histadelia is not a real medical condition, though there are one or two websites by physicians claiming to have done research in this area. However, in doing a web and literature search, i find no evidence to support their claims. If your child is experiencing concerning symptoms, please see your pediatrician. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What psychological and emotional damage is there to a 4 month old separated from its mother for no reason my ex has our son wont give him back hes been away from me for a week and hes never ever been away from me since birth.
There : There is not enough contextual information to make a definitive comment. It is clear, however, that in the absence of judicial rulings regarding custody or visitation, if the mother and biological father are not willing or capable of communicating in a reasonable manner or can not reach some form of agreement regarding the care and custody of the infant son, that this is not a good thing. If the parents have an unhealthy relationship or they fight over their child, it is likely to negatively impact the child. ...Read more

Trigeminal nerve: The most common form of paroxysmal orofacial pain is trigeminal neuralgia.

Can't Tell Now: Many children outgrow their food allergies but not all. For things like milk, egg and wheat, around 80% outgrow them. For nuts, it's as bad as only 20% outgrowing them. Shellfish/crustaceans are somewhere in between. There are new treatments in development though that may allow an allergist to desensitize food allergic patients in the next few years. ...Read more
I have question my husband is 42 years old in good health and has lots slot if weight o er two years. A few months ago he had a cough didn't go away. ?
Doctor can check: If the weight loss was unintentional, his primary care doctor can evaluate to find a cause for it. Causes of unintentional weight loss may be hormonal, digestive, cancer, infection, etc... A cough that doesn't go away also needs evaluation. The cause of the cough could be allergic, infectious, cancer, etc... ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
If a person has a severe intolerance to egg, will it ever go away? It started with my daughter at around age 15 years.
Depends/maybe never: You say "severe" which I'll assume has been verified with testing to show high IGE to egg protein. There are some with normal IGE levels that break out or have other symptoms but the high IGE group is more likely to have it for a lifetime. Some foods like egg, nuts,fish tend to be lifelong problems while other foods seem to be tolerated more over time. Please verify the issue with your doc. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Hi Doc, have being noticing my period has being fluctuating for like six months now. it will cease for like two months before it comes?
Anovulation: If you are not pregnant, you are having anovulatory cycles. This means for some reason an egg is not being released. This happens occasionally to most women and is often associated with stress. Other problems such as thyroid dysfunction can be associated. If missing two periods becomes a pattern or if you miss more- see your doctor for an evaluation. ...Read more

My 27 month old has been going to the same daycare for about a year now. Just these last couple weeks she's been crying when I drop her off.Why?
I agree w': Dr Finklestein this sounds strange. Try talking to your child. Ask if anyone has been touching her in ways she doesn't like or if anyone is hurting her. 27 months is old enough for her to verbalized concerns. It is never too early to tell a child that if anyone does anything to her that hurts or makes her uncomfortable, to tell you. I hope there has not been any foul play, but talk to her. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My maternal grandmother had it and just recently found out that my 78 year old mother has it. How does someone go about getting tested for alzheimer's?
Testing is here: Treatment unfortunately remains modest. The gold standard is the pet scan, and usage of the pib tracer can confirm the diagnosis. However, the pet is very expensive, and m'care will probably not pay for it. A poor man's substitute would be a spect scan, not as accurate, but might suffice. Also, lumbar puncture might help. ...Read more
Should my 38 yr. Old son have a fliter put in for blood clots in his lungs he has had pneamonia, been in the hospital about 10 days.He been off work from this

They had at the hospital he ha
A : A vena cava filter is a very good option for preventing blood clots in the legs from reaching the lungs. However, over time, vena cava filters can create problems of their own. They are better thought of as a short-term solution. If your son has clot in his legs now, and clots in his lungs as well, then it might be a good idea to place a filter to keep him from getting more lung clots. However, once he is upa and about, and on a stable dose of coumadin, (warfarin) the filter would ideally be removed. It is much more likely that a filter can be removed if it is taken out within about 6 weeks, after that, removal may be difficult or impossible. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My 15 month old son has had vomiting and diahrea on/off for 2.5 wks. We have seen the doctor twice who says this is a virus. Any advice to stop it?
Second opinion: Stomach flu is an annoying event at any age but when I hear of this pattern lasting more than 10 days I have to think of other issues - this may be diet related or symptoms of another disease process. How's the weight? Anyone else sick in the house? I'm not big into lab work for typical v/d illnesses but your child may need some further work up. http://diarrhea.emedtv.com/stomach-flu/infant-stomach-flu.html ...Read more

I'm in recovery from meth for the past year and started doing it agean been on it for a month now how can I flush my system out?
Coming back from relapse: There are no easy answers here. Do what worked the first time you got clean. The 3 important ingredients of successful recovery are: 1) support from others who know Recovery because they are doing it too, 2) making personal changes, a little at a time, such as working the 12 steps with a sponsor, & 3) a spiritual transformation. Figure out which of these stopped happening that led to your relapse, and fix the holes in your safety net. One day at a time, recovery is possible. ...Read more
