Conditions with symptom: 'breathing and sleeping difficulties'
hi i need some advice my baby is 7 months old, and has breathing difficulties. he chokes when he lies flat, he very tight chested and wheezie all the time, seems to get ocasional have panick atacks when he is coughing. and worst cases goes blue around the mouth. everybody i meet says he sounds like he has a bad chest infection. he has seen so many different dr in these 7 months, they all say the same he is eating and most of the time well in himself so they arn't worried. send me home, i have got an inhaler for him but it does nothing. i feel like im going crazy i cant sleep im up with him all the time incase he chokes. what can i do?? what is it? any advice would be great.
My son was like this and it was due to his adenoids being to larg and bloking the back of his nose, he had them out at 3 years and was so happy after his breathing was so much better and infections cleared up.
we have just found out that our grandson has flat head syndrom and it could cause learning difficulties is this true,
Give him/her water rather than milk..... Sounds cruel, but it worked with my two boys. They eventually realised that water was on the menu, and started sleeping through the night after a very short time....
my daughter who is 10 has always had a painful left leg and it turns in. if she runs she is screaming in pain or has a long walk it really restricts her and she has had some nasty trips as she is very clumsy we have tried to get her help we tried insoles physio and have seen several doctors round about the time we noticed her intoing about 2 half she started having speech problems and she could do the alphabet and count to twenty but after that she couldnt and has learning difficulties and memory loss please help her as she gets very down about it
I have headaches constantly and it makes it worse when swim and put my head under the water. I recently had my braces tightened and this is making it worse but I had had symptoms before that. I haven't suffered from any of the other symptoms except the trouble sleeping but I have had that nearly all my life. A symptom I have also got is my head starts 2 twitch a bit and it makes me blink a bit more than usually . I am 13 years old and It started a few weeks ago. I just need some help. :)
I have a son who is now 5 and he has a flat part to his head on one side, when he was born his head was perfect but it seemed to flaten from him sleeping a certain way. I asked the health visitor about this and was told not to worry. His head is still flat on one side but after seeing embarrassing bodies for kids I am now concerned that this should have been corrected. Do I need to worry? Is there anything that can be done now he is 5 years old? I do worry about the shape of his head especially id he goes bald in later life as hair hides it to a degree.
Hi, my 6 year olf daughter was exactly the same. I wasnt even sure if it was a verruca when I started treating it but has grown considerably. I went to the dr's about it as felt that the bazuka wasn't helping but was just told to persist. The dr also advised that she file it herself as it can feel more painful when someone else does it. My daughter also sleeps quite deeply so on occassion I give it a good file while she's sleeping, and also make sure you put the bazuka right around the edge of the infected area so no air is getting through. It has been a couple of months, never missing a night and only now I feel it is beginning to show that it's working. Hope this is helpful.
I am nearly 16 and have a phobiea of having a blood test, i simply refuse to have it done. I wouldnt say i have a phobiea of needles because i would much rather a needle in the bicep (if the top part of my arm is called the bicep)of my arm than a veiny part of my body. It just makes me cringe to even lay my arm out straight with my wrist facing up and if anyone grabs my wrist with there fingers grasping my veins i'll literally GAG OUT LOUD, i can't even think about it without crossing my arms. i tryed to have a blood test at one point way over a year ago, i could'nt help my hystericle behaviour, i was crying before i was even in the seat, i could'nt control my breathing and i was just all over the place scared to death and could'nt go through with it. I need a blod test. It would be so amazing and extremely hepful if anyone could give an answer that would help my phobeia in anyway please x =D please dont leave any sarcastic answers thank you x
Hi I am going through exactly the same thing with my son, now 12 but he has been like this since he was a toddler. We have just been refered to a Gastroentirologist recently. He was on meds for reflux but that didn't seem to make it go completely.There is a condition called eosonophilic oesophogitis where certain trigger foods cause a delayed reaction in kids sometimes days after.They tend to have issues with eating, trouble swallowing, vomiting, coughing while eating, having to drink between mouthfuls are some of the issues. My son described it as it is like he has a door in his throat and sometimes it is open and the food goes down ok, and sometimes it shuts and the food gets stuck.He then has to induce vomitng to get the food out.He has also been running off to the loo like this since he was 4. He gets a ' look' on his face and stops eating and you can tell what is coming next. The Dts thought it might be a hiatus hernia but 2 bariums showed nothing untoward wrong.The only way to diagnose eosonophilic oesophogitis is with an endoscopy and biopsies which look for more than 50 white blood cells present in the osophogus which normally should not be there.These are caused by consuming food/ foods which the child is allergic to, but because the reaction is a delayed one it is harder to detect.The cells inflame the throat causing scarring and this causes the dysphagia ( trouble swallowing) This is what I am trying to get the Drs to check for woth my son as he is typically atopic ( allergic ) . My son has year round rhinitis, mouth breathes and many allergies including pets, dust, tree and grass pollens, foods and asthma since he was 1. Also in young children failure to thrive or being small for age, sleep difficulties, tummy aches and lots of ear/ throat infections are very common as well as what you mentioned. I hope you get some answers and us too ! It's been a long road !
