My mom was just told she has a neck murmur.  What is a neck murmur?  What are the causes, symptoms, and treatment options?

Depends: The murmur label is just indication that there is an extra sound, usually of blood flow. In kids it is often blood flowing back to the heart from the brain, in adults it may be transmitted up from the heart or produced by a narrowing of the blood vessel (artery). Treatment, if any, would depend on the situation. A further study to discover the origin of the murmur would be next. ...Read more

My 10 year old son says his stomach is cramping and feels as if someone is pinching it along with a mild fever and headache. What could be the cause?

Appendicitis usually causes sharper, but not crampy pain. I would recommend that you take him to see his doctor to make the proper diagnosis. ...Read more

My 6 week old son is very congested has a bad wet cough and as of right now has a fever of 99.5 degrees f what should I do?

See the pediatrician: A baby under 2 months of age may be sicker than their overall appearance may indicate. While a temperature of 99.5 f is not a fever (that would be a temperature over 100.4f), your description of his cough is worrisome. He should see his doctor asap.

92 year old grandmother has blood in her urine she has no pain. Could this be caused by her aortic stenosis?

92 year old grandmother has blood in her urine she has no pain. Could this be caused by her aortic stenosis?

Blood in urine: The blood in her urine is not likely to be caused by aortic stenosis, even if she were on Coumadin (warfarin) if she had a metal valve. What your grandmother needs is a consultation with a urologist who will probably order a renal ultrasound to assess her kidneys. She may need a urine culture and a cystoscopy if that culture is negative for a urinary tract infection. ...Read more
