750172 tn?1256150676 Okay, my 2yr daughter had a real bad virus. Cold sores all in mouth and couldn't eat. Anyway, doctor gave us some APAP/CODEINE for her to take. Here's my question...She was on this for about 7 days, 3/4 tsp every four hours. She hasn't had any since last night at 11pm. She has been awful today, complaining that everything hurts and asking for medicine. Fussy, lots of crying and whining. Is this just a bit of withdrawl since she was on it for a week??
Avatar n tn I used to spend the whole evening exercising 5-6 days a week in my mid-20s back in college without ever getting any symptoms such as these. But, now in my early 50's I come down with flu-like symptoms even with a mild weight workout--but no problems with walking for 40-50 minutes uphill to break a mild sweat. My internist Dr.'s response has been: "I don't know what to say!
Avatar n tn as this can do permanent damage to the nerve cells in your central nervous system(brain and apinal cord), cardiopulmonary system and smooth muscle in your digestive tract( mainly the large intestine as these are the areas of the body where opiate receptors are widely spread. Tapering as slowly as possible will almost eliminate withdrawal symptoms. Once you stop taking them you will probably feel some withdrawal symptoms so always taper as slowly as possible toward the end. xoxo- D.
Avatar n tn He has started hanging round with a well known junkie and he is neva here now he says he will be bk in 10 mins thats more like 7 hrs and says we don't need to live in each others pockets which is true.
Avatar f tn Just remember, if you ever DO decide to get him assessed by a psychiatrist, make SURE it is a doc specializing in the treatment of children/adolescents. That makes a HUGE difference in both the eval process and treatment options. Don't get ahead of yourself. You're feeling a lot of guilt because you are not at 100% right now, you feel you aren't being a good Mom because of what you have going on...been there, done that, hon.
Avatar n tn This is the first Web site I've found where there are people with the same symptoms that I have. I am a 32 year old male who lives in Seattle, WA. I have Thalassemia minor and suffer mainly from ongoing fatigue. I am ALWAYS tired, no matter how well I eat or what vitamins I take. Doctors tell me that I'm fine and "just need to avoid Iron and do some aerobic exercise." I would exercise if I had the energy to. It's comforting to see postings from people all over the world.
Avatar n tn And they turn into children with those behavior and intellectual problems. Honestly, in my experience, when mothers say well I did that and my babies turned out just fine are either very lucky, or they aren't looking at their children with clear eyes. Encouraging pregnant women to drink "more than moderately" and cursing at people who educate about the dangers is just . . . thoughtless and dangerous to the next generation.
Avatar n tn Fatigue, my legs have knots, I have headaches days on end. If you touch my hair it hurts. These symptoms can not all be in my head(so to speak). I have joint and body pain all the time. I work on a computer all day 8 hrs or more, I think my headaches and fatigue may be related to my work. I take additional supplements daily and have for about 1 year. Has anyone else had the same symptoms along with the indentions and have they increased in size?

Avatar f tn We love primitive camping, the beaches, and any outdoor activities that we could include our babies in. We are having the hardest time letting go, but I pray that we will know when to stop. She is drinking water, eating some of the chicken; so as long as she is willing, wagging her tail, able to go outside and enjoy, we will continue the fight. My family and friends are supportive, but now they want us to let go. How can I make that decision as long as she is fighting?
Avatar f tn If you are with him all day every day, I assume this means he is not in preschool. Is preschool a possibility? Possibly, if you can just get a break, you might not be so angry at him. How is it that you became the fulltime babysitter while your boyfriend works 7 days a week? It is possible that your annoyance at this status quo (and at your boyfriend's ex for how the child was raised) is making you react more angrily to the boy than you would otherwise.
Avatar n tn hi Im also 20 and i have some of your symptoms. I can feel air blowing in my head and i can feel the arteries above my eye doesnt hurt but its just annoying.

Avatar n tn To Everyone I have been looking for answers to my back problem for a while...I also have this "spot" on my left upper back (right under where my bra goes around).

I actually have the skin almost raw in that area. This started about a year ago. Sometimes I feel soreness all the way down my left side.

Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with ADHD as a youngster and was on ritalin until the age of 10. In high school, I was very moody and had trouble paying attention. My parents took me to a psychologist who promptly put me on Prozac. Off I went to college. Had a couple meltdowns there and received counseling and was put on 2 or 3 different antidepressents. I stayed on Zoloft, tried to stop, got depressed and have been on it since.
535822 tn?1443980380 Experts speak of 5.4 million American children who display the symptoms typical of ADHD. Are you saying that this mental disorder is just an invention? Kagan: That's correct; it is an invention. Every child who's not doing well in school is sent to see a pediatrician, and the pediatrician says: "It's ADHD; here's Ritalin." In fact, 90 percent of these 5.4 million kids don't have an abnormal dopamine metabolism.
Avatar f tn Andrea Chronis and her team at the University of Maryland make a compelling argument that whenever children have ADHD, getting help for their parents should be thoughtfully undertaken. ADHD tends to run in families. In the Maryland ADHD Program study of 214 children, the parents of children with ADHD were 24 times more likely to have ADHD themselves than were parents of children without ADHD.
354604 tn?1328555666 We have seen patients with systemic lupus become a symptomatic, once taken off diet sodas. In cases of those diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, most of the symptoms disappear. We've seen many cases where vision loss returned and hearing loss improved markedly. This also applies to cases of tinnitus and fibromyalgia.
Avatar m tn com/journals/jama/fullarticle/194106 Soy is also very high in manganese, MUCH higher than breast milk, which may lead to neurological problems and ADHD . Soy infant formula is also high in aluminum, which can cause all sorts of problems.
Avatar m tn A 2010 Harvard study found that children with organophosphate pesticide breakdown materials in their urine were far more likely to live with ADHD than kids without the trace pesticide residues. Some agrochemical pesticides act as hormone disruptors, meaning they act like a fake version of a naturally occurring hormone in your body, they block important hormone communication pathways in the body, or they interfere with your body's ability to regulate the healthy release of hormones.
Avatar f tn I am interested in any information on treatments or NYC physicans who believe in a holistic approach and who speciallize in treating EBV.
