Is the position. of 1 st teeth in upper left portion instead.of.lower portion cause of concern in 7+ M BABY?

Genetics: Eruption of primary teeth and secondary teeth is genetically determined, and there really is not much one can do about teeth in a seven month old other than keep them clean with a soft cloth and do not let the child go to sleep with a bottle containing anything other than water. As the child grows and starts to see his/her dentist, the evaluation will begin. ...Read more

"the liver measures 15 cm. The gallbladder is normal. - impression: negative right upper quadrant ultrasound." good?

"the liver measures 15 cm. The gallbladder is normal. - impression: negative right upper quadrant ultrasound." good?

Yes, good: I suspect there is more to the report, since the radiologist often comments on the sonographic appearance of the liver and the size of the bile ducts, but the bottom line is the impression: Negative RUQ ultrasound. This means there was no disease identified during this exam. Follow up with the requesting physician for more advice. Thanks for trusting HealthTap! ...Read more

Can try positions: There are some positions which are thought to increase the chance of your baby turning to head down which might help. You can try getting on your elbows and knees with your head resting on a pillow this can aid the fetus in getting enough room to turn. You can try this for 15-20 minutes at a time, several times a day. It might or might not help but is unlikely to hurt anything! ...Read more

Dull but persistent pain (6/10) in mid-back, 2" to the L of spine, below bra strap. Radiates horizontally. Worst when lifting/maintaining one position?

Back Muscle strain: Hello Due to the relative moderate level of pain, it would likely be a back muscle strain. I would say the best remedy is rest from any strenuous lifting, but you should stretch to maintain your range of motion. You could try Tylenol (acetaminophen) for moderate pain relief or a small does of naproxen (Aleve) 200 mg by mouth every 6 hours for a couple of days to relieve the pain. If this gets worse see your doc. ...Read more

1.8 cm slip of L5-S1 Pain below bellybutton but across the entire lower abdomen. Constant sensation at the tip of penis CT/MRIs/blood all normal. ?

?: If you truly have a 1.8 cm slip of the L5 vertebrae on the S1 vertebrae, this is a pretty severe finding and by definition your CT scan and MRI could not have been normal. It could potentially be related to nerve impingement in the spine or some problem in the area locally. Seeing a primary care doctor might be a good start; a spine specialist and urologist could add input as well. ...Read more
