Avatar n tn Read this & see if it rings any bells. good luck A Special Message To The Health Professional William G. Crook M.D. Dear Colleague: Many infants and young children who come to your office are troubled by middle ear disorders. While some children may have what appears to be a mild URI, they may complain to their mothers, "my ear hurts". Other children come in with severe ear pain, fever and purulent discharge from their nasal passages.
Avatar f tn This delay can be seen along with other things often such as autism or attention deficit disorder but it can be all by itself as well as with my son. My son also would spin. He'd **** his head to the side when he did it and we actually found it "cute" and called it dancing until we started to feel it was a major impulse for him. It was. He is a sensory seeker and that was something he would do. I found he did it when he wanted to calm himself.
Avatar f tn Hello, Is there anyone, I mean anyone, out there that has rhythmic movement disorder? I have been violently thrashing my body and head, laterally while asleep or mostly somewhat asleep since I can remember. I am 30 now. It use to consume maybe an hour or two a night but now it is getting drastically worse. I find myself doing it or am told that I, "rock", 4-5 hours a night.
Avatar m tn (a) Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), (b) Oppositional Defiant Disorder, or conduct disorder, but it is difficult to disentangle those features from those of BPD. I certainly exhibited episodes of hyperactivity-impulsivity or just impulsivity, but I cannot find any detailed information about these early years since everyone who knew me then is now dead or not contactable. 2.7.1.
Avatar n tn Over the past several years he was questioned as to having an auditory perception disorder and was found to have a significant one. Later on attention deficit was questioned and was started on ritalin then cylert, both with very devastating side effects that included violent behavior. Then we tried behavior modfication which helped a great deal with his focusing at school and at home. Then he excelled in the 5th and 6th grade including making high honors.

Avatar f tn Your daughter is three years of age? ADD is Attention Deficit Disorder. ADHD is Attention Deficit Hyperactivity disorder. Even though they are both attention disorders, they are quite different. Your daughter is three years old; she is going to be hyper, she is going to have more energy than your whole family combined, just as well as every other three year old out there. I have a three year old of my own which inhibits every behavior you mentioned.
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.
284770 tn?1198183894 It stands for attention deficit disorder. As anyone who's been there, done that and got the tee-shirt can tell you, there is no Deficit involved here! Persons with ADD pay attentiion to EVERY-THING. That's the challenge. They tend to pay attention to the teachers watch, the walls, the markers, the chaulk, their hair, the scissors, ther hair, the scissors (what if he he). They slip in and out of the lesson. But have all sorts of distractions going on.
Avatar f tn Before the age of five there is evidence that my behaviour had some of the features of what is now called Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Perhaps in a later edition of this essay I will attempt a more detailed outline of what I recall from these years of early childhood, but my recollections are minimal and it is not my intention to comment further on these early years.
Avatar f tn Unsurprisingly, Ritalin, given to tens of thousands of school-age kids to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), topped the preschoolers' list. But ADHD can be extremely difficult, if not impossible, to diagnose with any confidence in kids younger than 5. Symptoms like restlessness and inattentiveness may simply be toddler rambunctiousness, "the terrible twos and trying threes," says psychologist Susan B. Campbell of the University of Pittsburgh.

Avatar m tn You most likely have a semi-permanent disorder called Vestibular Neuritis. It is a disorder that affects the nerve of the inner ear called the vestibulocochlear nerve. This nerve sends balance and head position information from the inner ear to the brain. If you notice that your symptoms worsen after a common cold or the flu, it's most likely due to the varicella virus (related to the chickenpox you had as a child) lying dormant deep in your your inner ear.
Avatar f tn We have done rewards, consequences, contracts, charts, grounding,severe discipline times, light discipline times and he is on Concerta and zoloft. It is like he needs the supervison of a toddler. This is overwhelming and exhausting on our family. He can be fun but will ruin it by starting arguments or getting handsy with people or name call. He takes everything personally. Therapy does not seem to be working. What can we do?
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 emotionally and financially. It often occurs to me that I will be a crippled mother who cannot care for her toddler. Or, that my husband will be burdened with this terrible disease of having to care-take for me. So to circle back, "Hope" is the only thing I have to cling onto. It pains me to answer in this way, but it is the only plausible, logical, and common sense explanation I am able to provide at this time.
Avatar n tn my theory is that sleep deficit haunts us until we finally catch up with all the deficit and until then, you may be prone to excessive dreaming. the best.
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 f tn wow.... i just experienced the same thing seconds ago and out of desperete need of an explanation i googled this.. im actually doing my project for school right now that is due tommorow and ive been sitting in front of my computer for several hours of silence. out of no where, my mind kind of wandered and my ears focused on the smallest noises. typing keys are like banging, and the sound coming from my computer booms. everything is magnifyed in perspective, and ringing within my head.
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 m tn i recently moved into a sober house and the bed i am in has a bed bug infestation, i am allergic to these little ******* and they bit the **** out of me, bites all over me, after burning out the room for a 2nd time with some big *** heater, they died for a little bit, but of enduring that **** for almost 2 weeks it gave me post tramatic stress disorder, i havent found any bed bugs for 5 days straight.
Avatar n tn Maybe if your doc gets something in the mail from them they might pay a little more attention to this matter and get to the bottom of this for us.
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.
