Avatar f tn Dear MSHanson, The most common cause of high blood pressure in infants is kidney disease. Since your daughter has congenital heart disease, it would be important to ensure that she doesn’t also have an associated coarctation, or obstruction, of the aorta, the main artery that takes blood from the left side of the heart out to the head, neck, and rest of the body. This should have been evaluated by an echocardiogram when the rest of the heart was seen.

Avatar f tn The next morn I woke up however and my panties had some brownish blood in them and when I went to the toilet it was a bright red blood. This continued for a few hours until it began to get lighter. However I'm worried because I'm not sure if it was my period or just as a result of the rough period was due on the Sunday (day after) when the bleeding began. My period can be irregular,easily effected by stress etc.

250051 tn?1328131130 I came in with shortness of breath and chest pains. I was admitted for 23 hour observation of my heart because I had a few rhythm problems in the ambulance on the way to the hospital. but the next day the doctor stated that my heart was doing good so he was going to discharge me, but I explained to him that the chest pain was secondary and the shortness of breath was the main thing wrong.
Avatar m tn One of my friends has currently been having some puzzling heart problems. She would be sitting in class, and all of a sudden her hear would race. She would immediately report to the infirmary, where the nurse would take her heart beat into record. I think the highest it ever was was pushing 120, almost into 130. It wasn't like she was doing anything physically strenuous. The only other symptom was a slight tingly sensation in her face, no specific part just all over.

Avatar n tn Are you sure you understood them correctly? Is it possible your daughter has premature atrial contractions and not atrial fibrillation? I am not a doctor but I have not heard of afib described that way and atrial contractions are not a danger where afib could be due to possible blood clots. Does your daughter have an unusually high heart rate keeping in mind children's heart rates tend to be more elevated than adults.

Avatar m tn In infants it can cause swelling of the head as the skull is not fused in infants. The long term effects of hydrocephalus can vary from person to person.

Hepatitis is most often viral, due to infection with one of the hepatitis viruses (A, B, C, D, and E) or another virus (such as those that cause infectious mononucleosis, cytomegalovirus disease, or yellow fever).

Congenital heart defects can disrupt the normal flow of blood through the heart. A CHD can be isolated or part of an underlying genetic condition. CHDs may cause mild to severe problems depending on the type and severity of the defect. The problems may be more severe if an underlying genetic condition is present.
Avatar f tn 20 to 5:20, may have dozed once in a while. No bad thoughts, figure suicide is a selfish act, just think of the one who finds you. Not a good idea at all. Maybe death looks like a good idea, but not by suicide. Natural causes is a different thing entirely.
