5221069 tn?1366618397 IVF failure is usually due to problems with the quality of eggs in most cases. Uterine causes can affect implantation but in very few cases. For making uterine lining receptive it should be exposed to the ovarian steroid hormones estrogen and progesterone in sufficient amounts and at proper timing. Do consult your infertility centre for more details. Keep me posted. Best wishes and regards!
Avatar f tn It is well known that vitamin B12 deficiency causes developmental delay and brain atrophy in infants and children. This has been reported in medical journals and texts since the 1960’s. The medical community (pediatricians, neurologists) is not routinely checking children who present with the first concern of developmental delay for B12 deficiency which is problematic and a clinical error.
Avatar n tn I have copied this out for you, it happens quite frequently While there are uncommon serious causes of passing out in children, the majority of fainting episodes are brought about by reasons that are neither serious nor life-threatening. The most common reason for fainting in children is called vasovagal syncope [VAY-so-VAY-gull SEENK-oh-pee). Vasovagal syncope is an abnormal reaction of the nerves to otherwise normal circumstances. These nerves dictate the heart rate and blood pressure.

1575110 tn?1334664635 I just usually vocalize it I never make plans or anything but I have harassed a couple of no bodys just because I felt like they needed to come to a realization of how negatively they have affected my life. One person had throat cancer, the other has anorexia, the other anorexia, and the other a crack head. I feel so bad.
Avatar f tn I have friends and family that I love, that love me. They all know about the anorexia since its visible but the drug stuff, only my friends know about. If my family knew, I fear they would try to take my children from me. They're all very scared about the anorexia but frustrated that the whole "just eat please, you're thin, swear to god!" thing doesn't work. Many of my friends have had drug problems, none have ever had eating disorders that I know of.
Avatar m tn How do you know that Anorexia causes pain all over the body? I mean i'm sure it does, but this is aout my brother. He is 15 years old and he has been struggling with this eating disorder for a few months now, probably 6 or so. I also have struggled with this disorder myself, but I'm over it now. I just dont' know what to do about him, because he has like, no muscle mass left on him!
Avatar f tn I'm a 16 year old female and I am barely ever hungry. I do feel hunger only in the morning and around 2-3 hours after I eat breakfast. I usually eat two handfuls of cereal with milk. When it comes to dinner, I'll take a few bites and I'll immediately feel full and nauseous. However I can eat a lot of sweets and salty things like crisps without a problem. A doctor told me that this is anorexia but I don't want to lose weight or feel bad about my body or anything like that.
Avatar n tn All these cause dizziness when you get up from lying down position or when you change position that results in a change in the level of your head. Cervical spondylitis and ear problems also cause dizziness on changing the position of the neck. It is difficult to comment without examination. Possible causes have been enumerated for you. You can discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted.

I just can't be asked iv gone from a size 8 to a 16 and can't be holding my weigh like I used too. Doggy and spoons are a little boring now... Help!
Avatar f tn Many people with anorexia nervosa, due to trauma in their pasts, want to lose weight for the complete opposite reason, to look sexually unattractive. In my own case, because of a lifetime of being raped and abused, I wanted to become emaciated so that men would find me unattractive and would be sexually repulsed by me, so that they would leave me alone. I hope that by losing weight the abuse might stop.
Avatar n tn Other causes of cold extremities are hypothyroidism, eating disorders like anorexia, Addison’s disease, adrenal causes like pheochromocytoma, anemia, Buerger’s disease, chronic fatigue syndrome and Raynaud’s disease. You will need some tests like treadmill test, color Doppler, angiography, ultrasonography and MRI (magnetic resonance imaging). Drugs like beta blockers which are used as antihypertensives can also cause cold extremities.

454366 tn?1211245301 Please read the info on www.jonbarron.org on Bi-Polar disorder in children. The info is kinda scary; but I think you might help with finding other avenues to take. Peace be with you and keep the faith. Our kids are our future. Let's not just dope them up because we are told to. Let's not dope ourselves up either.

Avatar n tn In which case taking help from a doctor specialized in treating eating disorders will help. There are many other causes like worms in stool, depression, anorexia nervosa, AIDS, cancers especially colon cancers, drug abuse, infections and loss of appetite. Loss of appetite can again be due to certain medications, drug abuse, depression, AIDS, acute and chronic infections, cancers and hypothyroidism.

Avatar f tn If there is more hair loss than this, the first cause we look at is diet. It has been long known that anorexia causes hair loss. Your 400 calories on alternate days is flirting with an anorexia-like diet and is most likely stressing your body. Rather than cut your long locks, look to have a balanced diet each and every day. Good luck.
