Avatar f tn We thought toddlers had it easy. No bills to pay, no bosses to please--just ice cream and a little mischief on the brain. But America's tiniest citizens, some still in diapers, are now the newest members of the Ritalin and Prozac nation.

Avatar f tn I forgot to mention the peeling, smelly feet, with no other symptoms of athlete's foot, no burning/itching, etc. Without knowing any of this, would she be diagnosed with ADD? How much of the ADD symptoms would go away with changing her diet? Teacher recommends testing for learning disabilities. Would malnutrition be detected in any of these tests?

602796 tn?1219877065 Every child tested for this has some symptoms. The key is in the degree and severity of it. Some children do have ADD/ADHD and need help. As a teacher, I have seen children medicated that did not need it and children NOT medicated that did need it. Teachers are certainly not doctors, but neither are mothers. Teachers are educated professionals capable of dealing with an active, spirited child on a daily basis. No teacher wants to see a lifeless child medicated beyond interaction.
Avatar n tn I had mine inserted this past Feb. I just started having the exact same symptoms. I am going to take a hpt. Let me know if you find out whats causing your problems.
Avatar n tn period symptoms and pregnancy symptoms are pretty much the same. it is not unusual to be a few days late. i just got my period this morning and i was expecting it 3 days ago. i am usually regular/on time. i had all the mentioned above symptoms and i questioned in my mind..am i pregnant? then i said, wait a minute, my husband and i didnt have sex for a whole month so it cant be that! you probably have period symptoms if HPT is negative.
Avatar n tn I can be tired after 12 hours sleep! Can I be suffering symptoms from my thallassemia. Does any one else feel the same way that I do? This is a little bit hard for me, but I don't want to complain.
Avatar n tn I'm a 26 year old male and since October 2006 have been experiencing 24-7 sinus pressure in the upper corners of my nose (always one side at a time), but NO allergy symptoms (i.e. no running nose, sneezing, coughing, itchy nose/eyes/throat, etc). The pressure is so bad that it presses back onto my brain, causing terrible lightheadedness, forgetfullness, and general mental impairment.

184674 tn?1360864093 A Child Tracker could include a chart with more age appropriate symptoms of children in toddlerhood/childhood, such as allergies, behavioral issues, nutrition, illnesses, etc. Treatments could include vaccinations (already in the Baby Tracker) along with medication treatments, behavioral counseling, dietary supplements, physical therapy, etc. for example.
Avatar n tn and yes I have terrible nausea with this pregnancy as well as intermittent vomiting. However, I work full-time and have 2 toddlers to take care of....I am extremely thankful for my live-in mother-in-law and an amazing husband! Enjoy the rest, if you can, cause when baby gets here it will all change! Hang in there!!!
Avatar f tn TSH is a pituitary hormone that stimulates the thyroid to produce hormones. It neither causes nor alleviates symptoms, nor does it adequately correlate with symptoms. Not all of us convert Free T4 to Free T3 adequately, so we have to add a med with a T3 component. I can't help but wonder if this might be your problem, but that can only be determined with FT3 and FT4 tests. Is fatigue the only symptom you have? I might suggest that you request to have vitamin B12 tested.
Avatar n tn he could have other problems like ADD. He needs to be evaluated by a behavorialist. Any changes in his life could causes these things to happen or he could even have a physical problem like cutting his 2 yr molars.

Avatar n tn Should I be having him evaluated for Aspergers (I have a nephew with it)? I should add that he is incredibly imaginative and verbal, tells long stories, makes believe in great detail, is affectionate and funny. But when he started hitting himself during a tantrum tonight I became more worried. When excited (usually about a story he's making up) he runs all around and flaps his hands. It's cute but is it normal?
1989262 tn?1326768009 Started noticing my anxiety symptoms Thanks Giving 2011. I felt a little dizzy. Then one weekend on Sunday before going back to work I had a panic attack. I never had one before, I went to bed and I felt that I could not lay down and just be there on the bed. I had to get up, then my heart started to race, I got really scared and put on my clothing and was about to go to the ER. I calmed myself down. After pacing around for a long time, I went to bed.
524832 tn?1229684586 Good Day, Fine people of MedHelp. This was initially written for the good doctors, but it seems the question limit has been reached. I understand that what is to follow may seem like panicked ranting, but I ask you to bare your teeth and bear with me. I'm an 18 year old male, and recently I looked into the mirror (As us 18-year-olds so typically do) to see what looked like a single very small pimple forming on my lip. "A pimple on the lip?
Avatar f tn They do now diagnose add/adhd earlier than the previous earliest age of 6. However, many things mimic add/adhd in those early years. Toddlers don't have the greatest impulse control or make safe decisions with NOTHING going on. Now you are obviously experiencing exreme symptoms with him for the doctors to diagnose these issues but am wondering if he'll handle something like an antidepressent down the road better.
Avatar n tn This way the nutritionist can add them in to your meal plan. Most insurance will cove the visit to the nutritionist for diabetics. We had the problem of our daughter was not a big eater; she ate a variety but not a lot of food. A nutritionist definitely helped us. I hope this helps .
Avatar f tn Its tearing me apart and I feel as if there is no long term future for us, we have two beautiful toddlers, and I am petrified of what the future holds for them.
1286779 tn?1400016406 The best solution is to find a good thyroid doctor, by which I mean one that will treat you by testing and adjusting the levels of the actual, biologically active thyroid hormones, FT3 and FT4, as necessary to relieve your symptoms, without being constrained by resultant levels of TSH. Note that FT3 and FT4 are not the same as total T3 and total T4.
1968463 tn?1374761413 Hello everyone ! So sorry for the sbsence. Been dealing with reuturn of symptoms. I'll explain about those a little later, Right now, I need some advice. My oldest son Logan, who will be 8 on Sunday, I found out has dysgraphia, and most likely A,D,D.
Avatar m tn I have tried going on gluten and wheat free diets and dairy free, for about two weeks and have not seen any symptoms diminishing. I have had a colonoscopy, ultrasound, CBC including blood work for thyroid, kidney, liver, hepatitis, HIV, B12, Iron, Gluten, stool-culture and parasite tests all with no findings. The only finding I've had is an x-ray supporting that I was constipated.
193953 tn?1272078626 my daughter was prescribed Adderall for ADD...she had a seizure and wasnt on Ultram...i think its the adderall....
Avatar f tn She is tall for her age but seems very much under weight, size 5 Toddlers still fit around her waist. Also, all her molars have cavities. What, if anything, can we do to turn this around? I forgot to mention the peeling, smelly feet, with no other symptoms of athlete's foot, no burning/itching, etc.
Avatar n tn Her condition is called toe walking. You might have already known that. It's common among toddlers, and less common among older children. Are you saying when she's in well-constructed tennis shoes, she walks normally? In children who always walk on their toes, over the age of 4, it's a symptom of autism. In her case, if she's not barefoot - she walks normally?
Avatar n tn What you can do is go to the ER if you don't want to wait the week. Explain to them the symptoms and be sure to be dramatic add cramps and all(you gotta make them interested, but don't go overboard). The ER will run all the necessary test you need.
Avatar f tn NEgative. Everyone assures me thats all testing needed and to continue on. Now, My baby daughter (2 yrs) - has developed a mild to moderate case of seborrheric dermatitis in her scalp and behind her ears. Recomennded to wait a couple of weeks, if no improvement, treat with dandruff shampoo?. Anyway, my concern is that EVERYTHING I READ, including my doctor says SD in toddler's is exceedingly rare, and occurs PRIMARILY with HIV infection. Scaring me half to death.
Avatar n tn They may also have preferences about how the foods are prepared and served, such as preferring raw to steamed carrots. There are many vitamins and minerals that toddlers and young children need. Possible reasons for loss of appetite When a child loses their appetite they: may be developing a cold or other illness. In these cases trusting the child's intuitive resistance to eating may be the wisest course of action.
