Why Did Our Geneticist Say It Was Not So Bad To Have Eds
Tends to be "mild": Most cases and types of eds have fragile skin and joint dislocation as the worst consequenses. However the vascular type can be devestating with spontaneously rupturing blood vessels in multiple organs causing bleeding or bowel rupture. Eds can be confirmed by genetic testing and typed by skin biopsy. ...Read more
Ever since my concussion I have struggled more in school and it is very frustrating. I wanna know why and what to do to fix it. Has it not healed?
BRAIN HEALTH: Concussion means "to shake violently". When this happens, the brain must go through several steps to heal. Any activity that takes attention away from healing slows recovery. Complex thought and problem-solving, like schoolwork, are not ideal in promoting brain healing. If you are still having symptoms, you should be entitled to "school accommodations". Would be happy to consult & help further ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have a question.. Why does everyone say not to lay on your back when pregnant reason I ask is because I'm 24w should I be worried?
Probably a myth...: Normal pregnant women, or any woman, may sleep in whichever position she finds comfortable. Getting a good night's sleep is important, regardless of whether one is pregnant or not. All over the internet, people post "advice" (but without "proof") about pregnancy sleep positions, but one can read about some actual research results at: http://www.jogc.com/abstracts/full/200710_Commentary_1.pdf ...Read more
I have so much saliva that happened suddenly. Is this normal? I hope it's not pneumonia. Do I need to worry or no?
Sometimes I mistaked strangers for well known people. I was sure that I knew them, I talked with them but they don't knew me! Is it normal?
Probably normal: Interesting question, Giulia. The brain is designed to seek out patterns and similarities in what we see--which is why we have constellations, for example. It is common for people to mistakenly identify others as someone famous, esp. if seen from afar. However, if it persists or seems unusual I would discuss it with your primary doctor or a psychiatrist. Stay healthy, and stay HealthTap. ...Read more

I told my family members that I had hereditary hemochromatosis and what tests to have done, but they won't listen to me; they say that their own doctors tell them "not to worry". I am worried; what can I do?
Lay out your labs: Sometimes what you say doesn't seem strong enough evidence to someone unlike visual proofs. You may want to show them your bloodwork and even genetic testing results to give them a wake up call. Finally, you can only suggest, you cannot change them if they are not willing to. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I have fibromyalgia. Because this condition is not very prevalent outside us, my family thinks its an excuse to not work. How do I cope up.
What to do if I had over that. but I do have high functioning autism, could that be why I feel so different?
Certainly, it is : frustrating, depressing & anxiety-provoking to know you have a problem with social communication & behaviors that seem "odd" to some, but you can't "fix" them without help. It means you're both smart & you have some degree of Theory of Mind, knowing that others may have a different point of view. See http://www.aapsa.net & autismsyracuse.com/linksresources/ to find funding & services. Good luck! ...Read more
I have many sx's and vague memories of c/h sexual abuse. My pshych only believes that i think it happened, but i need him to know it did. Suggestions?
What matters is not : That your psychotherapist believes that it happened or not. What matters is for you to explore further what both your mind and your body are communicating to you and to allow your body to release the tensions and the memories that relate to those events. Slowly, pay attention to what your nervous system and your physiology tell you. Look into body/mind approaches like somatic experiencing. ...Read more

My GF still virgin, so when we decide to have sex... we cldn't do it! She's having too much pain in her vagina! So we stoped... what should we?
Pain with sex: Well sex the first time can be quite uncomfortable for a woman. IF you try again make sure to have lots of foreplay, maybe use some water based lube and see if a finger can be inserted first without pain. Though at 21 she doesn't likely have an intact hymen, it may be of value for her to see a gynecologist to see if any issues. Be patient as losing her virginity is probably a big deal to her. ...Read more
My daughter, s finger is kinda swollen but she said that she did not hit it on anything ? So what should I do ? The hospital takes so long and then they don't really tell you anything.
Been 5yrs with boyfriend. Why do i always worry that when i marry i would not be able to conceive? Normal to worry before even trying to have kids?
Common worry: I think it is natural to have this fear. You try hard during your courtship not to let a baby complicate the process, then wonder if you could if you try. Most couples who want kids can make them, and either partner could be the problem if pregnancy eludes you. If you want, a frank discussion with your doc might clear up some concerns, but until you actually try,you won't know. ...Read more
