Avatar f tn You may have caused a tear in your anus from straining so much....causing the bleeding, this even happens in infants and toddlers a lot. It will heal on it's own. Keep your doctor's appt. and I'm sure he will recommend what I have, or recommend a stool softener such as Colace. I honestly feel it's nothing serious, so try to relax. I hope this has helped and wish you all the best!
1370830 tn?1280180103 My 3 1/2 yrs. old Grandson has been having bowel problems from about the age of 1yrs.old. As an infant everything was normal. There were no health issues and he was a cheerful baby. At 1yr. he started to have Diarrhea every day. He was not breast fed ( just in case you asked). The first week we chalked it up to a bug of some kind, but then we made a Doctor appt. for the first of the next week.
Avatar f tn Statistically, you have a better chance of being struck by lightening than having colon cancer at that age. Does anyone in your immediate family have colon cancer or a history of it? If not, you are even less likely to have it. Now, for a breakdown on what your issue probably is. If you google abdominal anatomy, you will see how the colon bends in the upper left quadrant. This area poses a problem for alot of people.
Avatar f tn My mom had something similar and went in to have it removed. She has a tiny scar, but is glad it is gone. I don't know what caused it. Her procedure was outpatient, so she went home the same day.
Avatar n tn Reactive Attachment Disorders stem from problems in the parent/child relationship in the earliest years. When infants and toddlers should be learning that their needs can be met by the people they are dependent upon, they learn instead that it's not safe to trust others - that to be dependent on others is not worthwhile.

Avatar n tn I've had same problems in my fingers with pain whilst sometimes just sitting on sofa. Over past few weeks I've has 4 and today a major one in my hand (palm) went with lots of pain and major swelling. I was so shocked I came onto the net. I feel reassured though that this is nothing to worry about.
Avatar n tn I have recently experienced mild symptoms of GERD. In addition I seem to have a spot in my esophagus where it feels like some of what I swallow gets caught. Swallowing gulps of water will wash it down but otherwise it stays stuck and become very irritating. Is this characteristic of GERD or is it something else? I have been told I may have something called a zanker. The spot feels like it is at the bottom of my larynx. I am 58 years old and in good health otherwise. Thanks.
Avatar n tn Remember, if you get tested you will know what you DON`T have, and your doctor will have a clue to go in a different direction. Thyroid problems rarely heal themselves.Hope you get some relief!

Avatar n tn I lost my Mom in an automobile accident in 1994. I was 20 and she was 42. I was living in LA at the time and the rest of my family including my Mom lived here in Minnesota. My sister called at 5:30am crying saying there's been an accident and Mom didn't make it. I was in shock! I had just spoke to hear on the phone over an hour a couple of days prior to the accident. You know everyone deals with grief differently. I myself dealt with drug addiction years after that.
211043 tn?1337054301 I have also had rectal menstrual bleeding so first I have to get a colonoscopy done to confirm that and then will have to have part of my colon removed if there is endometriosis in there. I also think my cervix is blocked with scar tissue, as the past two cycle I spotted (even less/almost no spotting this last cycle). So I have to have an HSG to check for that. After those are done it's decision time.
686769 tn?1236275731 Just as Davedog, they found a cancer in the crohns infected part of my colon, It was just a mass of colon all wadded up, the bariatric surgeon said he didn't know how I was standing it. In the middle of all the infected colon they found a cancer. It was an incidental find and was so new and not spread that I didn't have to have further treatment. I went to the oncologist every 3 months for a couple of years, now every 6 months and later 1 time a year for life.
Avatar n tn The 2nd friend is currently in her second year of fighting stage four melanoma and her chances of beating it are very low. She is a mother as well of a four year old little girl. I found a lump in my throat in June of this year. Of course after my friends diagnosis, I freaked and was sure I had cancer. It turned out my thyroid was enlarged and I had two large nodules in it.
Avatar f tn i think what you're experiencing is perfectly natural. you've had more than your fair share of problems in the past several years! talk to your doctor. i would think there isn't much he hasn't seen or heard.
Avatar n tn Children need space to stretch and roll around in their beds and if sharing a bed with others can restrict their mobility. They're like us, when we sleep in an uncomfortable bed, we start to ache. It's more critical to toddlers since they're growing. This is basically what this lady's doctor told her. Unfortunately, she was just some lady I met on a random occassion so I don't know how her son is now doing.
Avatar n tn An x-ray on Tuesday revealed a large amount of waste in hi colon and we are meeting a Pediatric GI specialist tomorrow and thanks to this message board I feel I have a lot more information to bring to the table. I know that there is nothing wrong with inside of him. I am hoping they will want to do a cleanse so we can start from scratch. So to speak. I feel so much relief thank you all!
Avatar m tn I really do feel for you, there is a hell of a lot going on there for you to contend with, but it sounds like you are aware of what is contributing to the problems. The PH test is only to measure the acidity levels in the esophagus, in preparation for Fundoplication surgery,but for me it does not address the underlying problem, the issue is whether you have low acidity levels in your stomach.
Avatar f tn I am not sure if those STRONG colon cleaners they give work or not but it totally cleans your colon (I guess pin worms can still be stuck to the colon wall but I am not sure) I just wish they would go up in there and remove and clean my colon. I mean at first the pin worms were soooo bad... I was itchy all the time! NOW I am not at all itchy at night... But I still see them in my stools, not everyday but every few days... I have heard they are a pain to get rid of.
Avatar f tn I'm a lot older than you, but I wonder if the pain could be shoulder related. I'm athletic too, and have had rotator cuff problems in my shoulder, which I definitely feel also in my upper chest and armpit. Also I tend to strain my pectoral muscles (under the breast) when lifting things or doing weight training--pain feels in the breast but isn't. Hope this helps.
Avatar n tn Had he had any reason to have taken the drugs in the past (before you knew him), due to any surgeries or chronic pain problems? It certainly sounds like an awful lot of narcotics--if indeed he is going through them as it appearas he might be.
Avatar n tn She nurses a little during the day still but mostly at night because she sleeps in the same bed with me. She uses it to go back to sleep when she wakes up and to fall asleep in the first place. I don't think that it is the chicken anymore because it seems like that would keep her sick all day and not just at night. Thanks for any help you can give.
Avatar n tn A new hormone specialist had changed my script for progesterone from a cream to an oral product and it was then that I started having problems. This doctor suggested that this was all in my head and that raising my level of progesterone, and changing from an oral bioidentical back to a cream bioidentical was not going to help. Luckily, I listened to my instinct...

Avatar n tn I have absolutely no energy, am extremely depressed, feel like every bone in my body is broken and I don't feel like I am getting better. From reading in this forum and other places on the internet, it sounds pretty bleak, like it could go on for weeks and weeks! Is there anything else that I can do??? THIS *****!

288415 tn?1231634102 My situation is now that I have severe itching in my ears, maddening high pitched white noise filling my head and feel like i've stepped off a roundabout every once in a while. I also have problems now with changes with changes in altitude and lifts. In my experience I would recommend the following: 1. Avoid vaseline as it dries out the ears and makes them worse. 2. Avoid sticking anything in your ear to scratch and pick.
Avatar n tn I would like to start the hcg shots soon. I live in NJ and I can't find a clinic in this state. There are a couple of questions I have. 1. On what website can I buy the hcg from? 2. Are most people following a 500 or 800 vlcd? 3. Are dieters washing their hair? Please answer "yes". 4. What are some of the menu options? I've read the Simeon's manuscript already.

Avatar n tn Is there a specialist that anyone would recommend, some pediatrition that specializes in behavior problems with Down children? I have read the previous posts and they sound encouraging. Maybe this is a stage, I think that alone would give them hope.
