What is nerve or structural damage? Is it happen in all Episiotomy? How to recognize and treat it?

What is nerve or structural damage? Is it happened in all Episiotomy? How can I know if it has happened or not? If happened, is it completely curable? What should I do to heal this and how can I recover this loss?

The absence of feeling, numbness when touching the area involved, or oversensitivity can reflect nerve damage. Lack of nourishment (nerves, blood supply) to the area can lead to structural problems.

This is something homeopathy can help. I've worked with moms whose doctors said they would not regain sensation, and they did - within 3-6 months. So, at least through homeopathy, you can go a long way towards healing. It's natural and safe for both baby and mom.  (+ info)

What is the sign & symptoms of nerve or structural damage of Episiotomy? What is the treatment to recover it?

What is the sign & symptoms of nerve damage or structural damage of Episiotomy? That means, after an Episiotomy, how can I know that if any nerve or structural damage has happened or not? If happened, How can I recover this loss and get back everything same as before?

my friend had this they really messed her up, she differed between numbness and pain. she went to her g.p who referred her to the hospital for an operation to correct the damage caused  (+ info)

Can structural damage to the developing brain, due to binge drinking during adolescence be reversed?

Can structural damage to the developing brain, due to binge drinking during adolescence be reversed by abstinence in adulthood? (completely quitting drinking from 20 years old onwards?) Also, does the damage caused actually limit the persons ability to learn and store new memories permanently or, with abstinence, does the brain compensate by forging new neural pathways etc?

Ok, after reading up on this the only studies available seem to be on adolescent rats because of ethical reasons etc.
There are articles all over the internet raving about the extremely dangerous effects of binge drinking on the adolescent brain but can these results taken from studies on rats really give an understanding of binge drinking on the human adolescent? If the human brain is more complex than mabye new neural pathways will appear to compensate for lost nerve cells?
p.s. Sorry about that last part not really making sense and repeating what I've already said...Maybe the damage is permanent!

It has been believed for years that the adult brain is incapable of repairing itself. Recent studies have shown that neurogenesis does occur in the olfactory bulb(responsible for our ability to smell) and the hippocampus(associated with memory). So I suppose it would depend on the extent of the damage and what areas of the brain were affected.

New research into Alzheimer's and Parkinson's Disease may unlock technology allowing repair of more extensive damage.  (+ info)

Is there any long-term effects to early treated Congenital Hypothyroidism?

I have had Congenital Hypothyroidism all of my life, i was diagnosed at 2 days old. I have been taking Levothyroxine since i was 2 days old also. I am now 16, but I am curious if there are any long term effects of living with it. For some reason I have never really looked into my disease that much.

Possible long term problems appear to be in the areas of memory, attention and visual spacial problems but as yours has been treated since day 2, you may not experience any of these.  (+ info)

Is this possible with a person having a congenital heart disease?

I'm not sure if this is medically proven or correct coz i just invented this. For example, a person is born with congenital heart disease, and his heart is weak ever since. But he is an athlete. He plays basketball since he was a child. And being an athlete helps him survive, because basketball is a sport and sport is a form of exercise, right? And exercise is good for the heart. So he survived BECAUSE of playing basketball? Can that possibly happen?

Children and adults with congenital heart defects can tolerate varying levels of exercise. Generally, exercise restrictions are based on the severity and type of heart defect.
People with mild heart defects usually can participate in any type of sport or exercise. Those who have moderate or severe defects or who have had surgery require careful evaluation by a health professional before starting an exercise or sports program. Often a stress test EKG (a type of electrocardiogram) is done to determine the effect of exercise on the heart. Many children have this test by the time they start school and become involved with physical education classes and other activities.http://www.revolutionhealth.com/conditions/heart/congenital-heart-disease/live-with/exercise  (+ info)

I have congenital nystagnus, if I have a baby will they be at risk for developing this anymore than others?

Around 5 months age I was diagnosed with congenital nystagnus, I have always wanted kids, and assumed I would have them. But in reading about parenting, I am starting to become concerned that if I have a child they will be more at risk for developing this than any other child. Is that so? Is nystagnus hereditary? Or is my child no more likely to develop it than any other child?

My 10 yrs old son is diagonised having congenital muscular distrophy.Any medical site which I can refer ?

My son who is 10yrs old is diagonised having congenital muscular distrophy. But the biopsy reports donot confirm fully. He is sitting only, not able to stand. He is going to school and is studing in Std IV. Any specialised site or doctor who can advise on our future course of action?

If you or someone who know has been diagnosed with muscular dystrophy, or MD, then you are most likely curious to understand the causes, symptoms and treatments of MD. Muscular dystrophy is a genetic disease that causes different muscles to weaken and worsen with time. There are several different types of MD which can affect different muscles and have various outcomes.

The cause of muscle dystrophy is genetics. In most cases of MD the mother will be the carrier and pass it along to their male children. However, in Facioscapulohumeral MD, both males and females are affected equally.

Female children will have a 50 percent chance of carrying the gene. It is possible to detect the muscle dystrophy gene when you are pregnant. If you have a history of MD, then it's best to make sure. Consult a genetic doctor who can perform a test with 95 percent accuracy to see if the gene has been carried on.

Symptoms of muscle dystrophy vary in severity depending on the type of MD you have. Facioscapulohumeral MD affects the upper body and the face. Droopy eyelids, troubles hearing, difficulty pronouncing words and decreased facial expression are all symptoms of Facioscapulohumeral MD. Becker's MD affects the lower body including the legs and the pelvis.

However, with both Facioscapulohumeral MD and Becker's MD, it's possible to live an extended life, often with no disability. Duchenne's MD is another story.

Duchenne's MD is the most severe and usually causes constraint to a wheelchair and an early death. The muscle weakness is simply too severe and often complications can result from this. Most young boys who have been diagnosed with Duchenne's MD will not live past their 25th birthday.

Muscle dystrophy treatment includes physical therapy, group therapy, orthopaedic braces and oral corticosteroids. Unfortunately there is no cure for MD. Instead the focus is on strengthening the muscles and lessening the severity of the symptoms. In some instances, such as with Facioscapulohumeral MD, there may be no symptoms at all. However, in other cases, such as with Duchenne's MD, the symptoms and the consequences are devastating.  (+ info)

Is Sacralization of the L5 and S1 always congenital. Can it be a result of an injury?

I was diagnosed by one radiologist that i have congenital sacralization of my L5 and S1. I work a job that has a lot of strain and impact on my back. I am wondering if my job could have caused the sacralization. I also have the start of arthitis in my L5/S1 region.

I agree with Richard C.
The work you did pushed you over the edge. I had to have surgery on mine.Workman's comp did pay for that. But I put in my time at PT. first. I now wish I had opted for the 6 weeks of traction but I had little kids at home and took care of my elderly mother. I didn't think I had the time. I wish the people that had" my best interest at heart" Would have invested some time in me and helped me out. Actually I don't think I even asked for help...But I want to make sure that doesn't happen to you,OK?. 6 weeks in traction....VS....a lifetime of pain even after the surgery ? take the traction.  (+ info)

How do I know if I have Congenital Rubella Syndrome?

I do have congenital cataracts, as well as hypothyroid. some other neurological symptoms began 10 years ago that doctors could find no answer to.

That is an interesting possibility. The source below says that all those things may be associated with congenital rubella syndrome, including the delayed onset of neurological problems. It also gives some contact information if you need more information from the experts. I hope you can finally find out what is going on.  (+ info)
