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.

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. Typically, a pain attack is accompanied by tic-like cramps or involuntary spasms of the facial muscles ("tic douloureux"), and often leads to a complaint of muscle pain. See a neurologist for evaluation, tests, imaging and treatment. ...Read more

Trigeminal Neuralgia: Has she has an MRI (rule out MS, or compressive pathology)? How was diagnosis made? This may be a debilitating condition, but she may achieve relief with certain medications (Tricyclics, anticonvulsants), injections or surgery as the surgeon (ENT or neurosurg) sees fit. Seek expert medical help for your wife. Her quality of life depends on it. ...Read more

My two year old son has crustacean allergies. Will this condition go away or is it for life?

My two year old son has crustacean allergies. Will this condition go away or is it for life?

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 more

If a person has a severe intolerance to egg, will it ever go away? It started with my daughter at around age 15 years.

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 more

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 mother is (90)years old her tongue has black on it she have surgery five to six weeks ago someone told me this can come, from (i.V) or antibiotic .?

Maybe thrush: People exposed to antibiotics or those with depressed immune systems(say from cancer) may develop an overgrowth of yeast in the mouth; this is called thrush. It can be treated with oral lozenges or mouth swishes and sometimes may need an oral anitfungal agent. All require a prescription from your health care provider. ...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?

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 more

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

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 more

GER: Certain foods, activities, medications and conditions that increase pressure in your abdomen can trigger reflux. Laying flat at night increases irritation of the esophagus with this condition and many people complain of morning stomach ache. Untreated acid reflux can cause esophageal strictures, respiratory problems, ulcers and throat problems. Zantac (ranitidine) and Prevacid are two medications for this. ...Read more

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.

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

Can hemangioma go away? My child had a biopsy, but it has been growing again. It grows on her leg under the skin. She's15, it's been there for 9 years

Unlikely at this age: Some hemangiomas do "go away" on their own, but this is usually seen in infants. At age 15, with it enlarging, this would seem unlikely. You are in san fransisco...I would seek an opinion at your university medical center...They may have someone who specializes in the treatment of hemangiomas or "arteriovenous malformations". If not i would start with a dermatologist. ...Read more

Full bloods done all normal apart from slight high CRP and platelet, lymph node on child been 11 months nw, won't go away, paediatrics 3 times seen her?

May be normal: Swollen lymph nodes may be normal in children depending on the case.If your child is acting well, eating/growing well, and the lab work is normal, this may be a reactive lymph node (is it in the neck?). Lymph nodes react to anything foreign in the body, including bacteria/ viral infections and allergies, and may stay swollen for prolonged periods. If it is changing, follow up with your doctor. ...Read more

Hand, : Hand, foot and mouth disease is a viral illness usually comprised of fever, painful blisters in the mouth, and rash. It typically affects infants and children under 5 years of age. The symptoms usually clear within 7 to 10 days. If your child has had 2 months of non-stop symptoms, it may not be hand, foot and mouth disease, but another illness depending on what her symptoms are. You should call your doctor to discuss your concerns. Your daughter may need testing to figure out what she has and how to help her. ...Read more

Suffer retractile testicles after inguinal hernia surgery. Will this go away or stay like this forever? It's been 2.5 months. Any tips to make it go?

Should stop: I admit i don't have any research to quote you, but in my experience this somewhat atypical problem should be self limited. You could try applying warm heat to the scrotum, in the privacy of your own home, of course. This would cause the cremasteric muscles to relax to drop the testicles away from the groin. It's worth a shot. Good luck. ...Read more

Hello after I hade my baby 12/7/14 I been having bad back pains that don't go away I can't hold my baby long with out if swelling up?

See your doctor: There can be many reasons for back pain after pregnancy and delivery. You could just have a muscle or ligament injury that can take some time to heal - often weeks or a few months. It is also possible that you have a joint or disc pain. Regardless of the source it should go away with or without treatment soon!! I would recommend having it checked out by a doctor just to make sure. ...Read more

Difficult question: True hemangiomas tend to increase in size and thickness faster than a kid grows up until age ~12 mo, when they plateau in relative size and gradually begin to fade over 2-4 years.Oral propranalol with close monitoring has been used to try shrinking these with varied results.The Timoptic (timolol) is a similar medicine but designed to treat eye pressure issues in adults. It is not approved in the us for kids. ...Read more

Never Despair!: Working with an excellent cosmetologist or dermatologist, you will be pleasantly surprised that may no longer be true. So many new products and different type laser techniques -you may find excellent success. You may wish to try a tiny isolated area first to be "sure" that tissue reaction is not as bad as the "melasma". ...Read more
