Avatar f tn A month ago she saw a Cardiologist that said she had POTS. He said it happens in young adults. I feel there is something else going on after seeing heart on screen. Could that dangling piece from heart cause a problem.

Avatar n tn My little brother has had various traumatic events related to his heart and breathing. When he was young he choked on a small boiled lolly and then about one or two years ago he had what I beleive were heart palpatations, but he thought it was some sort of 'heart attack'. He is only 8 yrs old and he doesnt understand that it was normal and happens regularly to people.
Avatar f tn One of the few people I can say are doing motherhood RIGHT. We are now adults. 15 is really young, yes, and not in your plans, but if you want that baby? You keep that baby. :) Every new mom has doubt's over whether we'll be good moms! It's normal lol. Do what you think is best. If your heart says to keep your baby, then all the trials with family and society will he worth it. <3 If your heart says to do adoption, that doesn't make you a bad mommy either.

280234 tn?1532986249 I was wondering if any other young adults have been diagnosed with colon polyps? I'm a 34/f who was recently diagnosed with a 1.1 cm "Tubulovillous adenoma" during a colonoscopy (was seeing blood/mucous in stool for about 6 months). The lab report came back that it was benign, and my GI doctor said follow up with him in 3 years. From what my GI doctor told me, and what I've read about these, they are considered precancerous. Following up in 3 years makes me nervous.

Avatar m tn Yes, she's too young -- these meds aren't approved for people that young, though doctors can prescribe them. Her brain is still developing. These drugs aren't even recommended long-term for adults, so imagine if this becomes, as mentioned above, the med merry go round. I'd stick with therapy and realize that all 13 year olds are nuts in some way that sometimes lasts but usually doesn't.

Please tell me what you think, should I find another option.

Avatar f tn I am looking for a Cardiologist or Neurologist with experience and interest in following patients with POTS patients who were dx in adolescence and are now young adults and no longer eligible to be seen by their Pediatric docs. I also have two children and a neice with POTS, so I know how hard it is to access good care. Any suggestions? Thank you.
Avatar m tn As fortis said, there are different types and different degrees of murmurs. Quite a lot of them. To learn the implications for anyone of any age, it is necessary to get back to the doc who diagnosed the murmur and ask him/her for much more information.

An electrocardiogram is recommended if the person has a history of heart problems. It is necessary that you discuss this with your prescribing physician.
994817 tn?1249738278 Can I have Coronary Artery Disease, Heart Attack, or Heart Disease at such a young age? Did all of the caffeine I drank in my childhood/adolescence possibly have an effect on my heart? And if it did have an effect, is it life threatening? PLEASE, anyone who can give me advice or who goes through the same thing please let me know. Some hope and peace of mind is very much needed.
Avatar f tn How old is your son? Are these baby teeth or adult teeth? I wouldn't pull any adult teeth unless absolutely necessary. Yes, the wisdom teeth could potentially fill in that space but there are complications with that. As the wisdom teeth come in, they don't move sideways into the space but rather, they tilt in and lean in sideways which causes problems with the jaw bone.
