Avatar f tn Dear gordorae58: Currently, 2 out of 3 American adults are overweight or obese, so you are not alone. HBO put forth an enlightening documentary called "Weight of the Nation". This project, in partnership with Institute of Medicine (IOM), was to help educate the public on this epidemic we are facing in United States. Please go to: The Weight of the Nation
Avatar n tn Your son's behavior and emotional states indicate that he may well display some neurobehaviral disorder (e.g., Attention-Deficit-Hyperactivity Disorder), a mood disorder (e.g., Bipolar Disorder), a so-called Axis II condition (i.e., aspects of his personality or character that may be fairly enduring, as opposed to conditions which have identifiable onsets and courses), and possible neurological disorder (e.g., seizure disorder) and psychotic disorder.
1734603 tn?1310425995 Apart from Attention deficit hyperactive disorder, ADHD, you need to be investigated for multiple sclerosis by your neurologist. MS is a chronic demyelinating disorder also. MS is a chronic demyelinating disorder where the disease phase is characterized by active phase and remissions. It has multiple symptoms and signs and is a diagnosis of exclusion.

Avatar n tn I have researched anxiety disorders, dyslexia, oppositional defiant disorder, autism and so on. Nothing seems to fit just right. So here is what we are currently facing... At home my son has improved tremendously. His hyperactivity has died down and he seems more like a typical 5 year old boy. He generally listens on the first try or at least by the second. If he is could take five times or more. He is sweet...caring...affectionate...thoughtful...very attentive...
Avatar n tn Don't feel bad about this or your parenting! This could be early signs of attention deficit disorder. They are there to help you and make suggestions. If it was "learned" behavior all the kids would be doing the same things since they are all in the same classroom, and you don't want to get into the habit of blaming other children for your child's behavior... you've got MANY years to go! It's time to get some help since you've tried all you know.
Avatar n tn Yes, by all means have her evaluated for both Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and Learning Disability. The symptoms you describe could be explainable by ADHD alone, but it is unlikely. Sometimes a learning disability goes undiagnosed until the curriculum becomes a bit more complicated, as it does in the fourth grade.
Avatar n tn 55 Dear Pam, Regarding your first question, there is often an association between Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder and Learning Disability (of many types). That is, it is often (but by no means always) true that when a child displays ADHD, that same child will display some form of learning disability. Both of these conditions (ADHD, Learning Disability) have a strong genetic component.
551343 tn?1506834118 Thank you. I'm glad I'm not the only one with attention deficit issues around here. My mobility is next to zero, these days. I'm stuck in bed 95% of the time, so my options are severely limited. I guess maybe there's no other coping mechanisms, aside from keeping busy, and that's just not working, anymore. Maybe it's time to call a shrink.
Avatar f tn Playing with poop is not typically something that results from ADHD. It is often seen in Reactive Attachment Disorder with children. RAD is often seen in adopted children, where the initial attachment with the biological mother has been disrupted, even if the child was very young or an infant when adopted. It is something that can be easily addressed in therapy, but cannot be eliminated through meds, since it's a response to stressors not genetics.
Avatar n tn Research also shows that sugar does not cause hyperactivity. Many factors can cause children to have problems paying attention besides an attention deficit disorder. Family problems, stress, discouragement, drugs, physical illness and learning difficulties can all cause problems that look like ADHD, but really aren't. Regardless of the cause, ADHD is thought to be associated with a disturbance in functioning of neurotransmitters in the brain.

Avatar f tn I sort of liked Huckabee (although I am a liberal) but these religious zealots, especially those that want creationism taught in schools and those that change their minds as the winds blow will certainly not think that the druggie diseases are worth fighting for. Probably want us to crawl in a hole and die. Who was it that NEVER mentioned HIV back in the 80's during his presidency? I agree with Goof. Nothing will be done. And to be fair remember Hillary's health plan?
328927 tn?1227765440 So, I have absolutely no clue as to where I am in my cycle in terms of dpo. My BBT is unreliable though since my cat has a serious affection deficit disorder after our 2 week absence and I could not sleep at all. Typically I do not O till cd 13 which is today. Since we were on vacation I did not OPK till cd 11 so not sure when LH surge was first detected. Sorry for being so self-involved... I am so sorry about your nausea! I do hope it goes away soon.
Avatar n tn i have a sister who just happens to be a doctor and she had me get checked for hemochromatosis . apparently this a disorder which affects the thyroid, liver, and the pancreas and while uncurable it can be treated by essentially giving blood. also women with this disorder arent normally diagnosed until after menopause as thier menstrual cycle normally keeps thier iron levels low . if this is thecause of your hypo then trating it may reduce or eliminate your hypo.
Avatar n tn Albeit it is a subject of debate, most ENTs accept it as a fact that the Herpes virus does attack the cochlea. I have seen it many times, if it is actually herpes, I do not know that for a fact, but I have seen people respond positively to Valtrex & steriods. But Hollybeaks situation has nothing to do with a viral attack upon the cochlea.
551343 tn?1506834118 This is because of my dad's history and the plus syndrome is like an ms syndrome. Trouble is I know leber's is a mitochondrial disorder so it has be passed down from your mother not your father. My swallowing problems have worsened over the past couple of years. It also takes me so long to eat plus with loss of appetite I really am fighting to keep calories up. My speech can also be affected but it's all due to spasticity. So a couple of days ago I developed what we think is an anal abscess.
Avatar f tn In looking for whats the cause, I've seen a lot of things, but I don't think I have a sleep disorder, because I sleep great. I've never taken drugs, prescription or non. One message board mentioned that its merely a nutritional deficiency thing, so I'm going to try some multi vitamins. That doesn't seem like it could be it, but i'll try about anything. And if that doesn't work, I'm going to have my head examined.
Avatar n tn Probably, I have some type of seronegative arthritis such as a.s. I also have an ai blood disorder. I'm glad I'm SVR and I'll do what I need to do to treat these autoimmune issues as well. In my view, the ai problems are still better than the alternative.
Avatar n tn Do you correlate with the initiation of these episodes with any particular event? You might be having a rhythmic movement disorder, which more or less resembles the symptoms or even age related. Has your doctor done a sleep study? You need to continue the medication for couple of weeks as advised by your doctor and try to avoid trigger factors like alcohol, smoking and stress. It is better to consult a neurologist and get evaluated. Take care and updated on your thoughts and progress.
Avatar n tn I just had blood work done by my GYN (no other Dr. suggested it) so it'll be 2 weeks before I know any results from that. I also have panic being like this for so long has caused that to kick in even more and I'm taking more Xanax. I'm thinking something's just weird this year....and whatever it was, I got it! I've heard of a lot of people being like this this year. I don't have a deviated septum and Dr. said I didn't need surgery...but if it would help me I would try it!
Avatar f tn he was just matter of fact and not to apologetic..I then called my regular dentist and went over report with him and he just said the same thing , that i t was just bad luck and not usual thing that happens.. said it was not often and he was very sorry it happened. But time would hopefully heal I guess I am in for a long wait or a wait who knows how long..
Avatar m tn Some nights it was so bad, I slept with the sheet over my head. I know the bugs are real because when I'm not at home I am not plagued by them. If I shower, put on fresh clothes and make it out of the house before slimy, spidery, itchy, static feeling gets on my clothes or arms, I can run my errands or go see a movie without being tormented. Every morning, I strip my bed and wipe down the plastic cover I have on my mattress. Before bed, I wipe it down again and put on the clean sheets.
Avatar m tn Have had an eye exam all seems OK, I think that there is truth in the fact that the brain does seem to draw attention to them and may well be a psychological thing/stress thing.
Avatar n tn the immune system over reacts after the shot and strikes your nerve system, so perhaps the fact that you already suffer from an auto-immune illness can indicate that you had more chances than others to get this side effect. I don't know, as far as I know there's no one else here with a previous auto-immune illness. @coriecl: sweaty feet!?! That's great coriecl, we could make a contest in this forum and give a prize to the weirdest symptom of the month!
Avatar n tn There is a good article in Women's Health this month in regards to Chronic pain and the fact that sometimes the nerve does not "shut off" long after the injury has healed. At least this would account for the fact that nothing shows on MRI's, X-Rays, CAT scans, Bone Scans etc., etc.. The hope was that the nerve blocks that I had would work "like shutting down and restarting your computer". One worked for 4 days, the next one 2 (they won't repeat them).
Avatar n tn Maybe you have been told different information than other and you are not the one who is taking it are you? The fact that its your husband taking it does have something to do with you not seeing results,most the people that have wrote on here are women/female and have pcos and or diabetes and that plays a big role on the effects of the meds! because theres something more going on that you dont understand because lol your husband dont have overies well at least i hope not.....
162948 tn?1205256292 I recently had my IUD removed, and started to get discouraged after several negative tests. I did a little bit of research, since my doctor never told me what to expect afterwards. It is normal to bleed heavy clumps after it is removed. The IUD works a couple different ways. It does reduce your uterine lining, blocking fertilized eggs from implanting on the uterus, or by creating a mild inflammation which prevents sperm from fertilizing eggs.
