What would outsiders see at the onset of schizophrenia symptoms?


Would 16 likely be too early for these manifestations to appear? What symptoms would appear as the disease progressed?
----------

Anger. Sadness. Drug abuse. Grades drop at school. Not able to concentrate. My son started the above symptoms around 17. And, he was diagnosed with schizophrenia at age 20, when he started hearing voices, and talking to himself.   (+ info)

what are the clinical manifestations of encephalitis?


Hmmmmmm ......
"Clinical"?

As a Personal Survivor of Enceph~
I would say the "manifestations" include:

Flu Like Symptoms, Stroke-Like Symptoms,
Neurological Convulsions, Dis-Orientation,
& Confusion! Cranial Pressure is enough for one, to want to Just *DIE! The Brain is attacked by the virus & becomes inflamed.
The swelling against one's skull is UNBEARABLE! (None of you have ever had a Headache like the one's I have had!)

Many patients DIE before the Medical Staff can figure out what they are dying from!

Many times the Doctors just send Encephies home. (They think we have the flu!) Then when we are re-admitted & almost DEAD~ they think we have a Brain Tumor. A Spinal Fluid Tap will sometimes detect the Enceph Virus. MRI might show lesions on the brain.

I am one of the "lucky" ones! I was treated with Steroids to combat the inflamation.

But Encephalitis is the "gift" that Keeps On "Giving"! The residuals continue on for a LIFE-TIME! Memory Loss, Paralysis, lack of Executive Functioning & Neurological Disorders~ etc.!

I hope this helps ans. your question.

What if any is the gestation period of hepititis B?


How many days would it take after exposure to the virus before one would start showing simptoms if one were to have contracted acute hep. B? How long after contracting the virus before it can be detected by a blood test. Would it be the same for the Acute and chronic manifestations?
----------

The incubation period varies between six weeks and six months (average two to three months).
HBsAg may appear within two weeks, but in rare instances may notbe apparent until six to nine months. The variation is related to the dose of virus inthe inoculum, the mode of transmission and host factors.
Blood from experimentally
inoculated volunteers has been shown to be infectious many weeks before the onsetof the first symptoms and remains infective through the acute clinical course of the disease and during the chronic carrier state.  (+ info)

What are some manifestations of COPD??


What Is COPD?
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a lung disease in which the lungs are damaged, making it hard to breathe. In COPD, the airways—the tubes that carry air in and out of your lungs—are partly obstructed, making it difficult to get air in and out.
Cigarette smoking is the most common cause of COPD. Most people with COPD are smokers or former smokers. Breathing in other kinds of lung irritants, like pollution, dust, or chemicals, over a long period of time may also cause or contribute to COPD.
The airways branch out like an upside-down tree, and at the end of each branch are many small, balloon-like air sacs called alveoli (al-VEE-uhl-EYE). In healthy people, each airway is clear and open. The air sacs are small and dainty, and both the airways and air sacs are elastic and springy. When you breathe in, each air sac fills up with air like a small balloon; when you breathe out, the balloon deflates and the air goes out. (See the How the Lungs Work section for details.) In COPD, the airways and air sacs lose their shape and become floppy. Less air gets in and less air goes out because:
The airways and air sacs lose their elasticity (like an old rubber band).
The walls between many of the air sacs are destroyed.
The walls of the airways become thick and inflamed (swollen).
Cells in the airways make more mucus (sputum) than usual, which tends to clog the airways.
COPD
The illustration show the respiratory system and cross-sections of healthy alveoli and alveoli with COPD.
COPD develops slowly, and it may be many years before you notice symptoms like feeling short of breath. Most of the time, COPD is diagnosed in middle-aged or older people.
COPD is a major cause of death and illness, and it is the fourth leading cause of death in the United States and throughout the world.
There is no cure for COPD. The damage to your airways and lungs cannot be reversed, but there are things you can do to feel better and slow the damage.
COPD is not contagious—you cannot catch it from someone else.

Is there a correlation between stopping smoking and the the manifestation of shingles?


I need researchers or serious thinkers to look at this question.
It is ofcourse unhealthy and politically incorrect to smoke. - Thanks for your time. M
----------

I do not know if there is a correlation, but it stands to reason that when someone quits smoking there is a certain amount of stress going on in the body, and shingles is stress related.. My guess is that the two CAN be related, but do not necessarily HAVE to be related.  (+ info)

what are symptoms of sexual abuse in a child?


What are some physical manifestations of it?
----------

I was sexually abused as a young girl and there was never any bruising or outside visible signs, although I know that often bruising in the genital area is a dead giveaway.

From what I understand an unusual preoccupation with sex that is age innapropriate is sometimes a warning sign. If the child talks about sex using terms or phrases you would only normally hear an adult use ( using adult swearwords at age four for instance) there may be a problem.

If a child is unusually nervous or afraid of a particular adult and does not want to be left a lone with that person it may indicate abuse.

Sexually abused children will often develop other behavioural problems that can look like ADHD, or even become clinically depressed. They may be aggressive, irritable, teary, antisocial, perform badly at school, have low energy levels etc. because of the stress they are under.

Most young experiment with sexual activities because they are discovering their own bodies, and this is normal, but any kind of forced sexual interaction between two children such as a boy bullying a girl into showing him her private parts is a strong indicator of abuse.

This is all just off the top of my head from when I was in therapy.

Hope that helps.  (+ info)

Whats the difference between morbidity and symptoms?


(Epidemiology) I am writing out a report about a disease, and I have to split it up into sections -- Well, I'm having trouble separating morbidity from symptoms. I know they both describe the nature of a disease and the physical manifestations of it, but how are they different? Do you have any examples I could look at?
th6231 - you have NO idea what you are talking about so I'll just ignore you -

Ramashka - thanks :)
----------

Morbidity (from Latin morbidus: sick, unhealthy) refers to a diseased state, disability, or poor health due to any cause. The term may be used to refer to the existence of any form of disease, or to the degree that the health condition affects the patient. Among severely ill patients, the level of morbidity is often measured by ICU scoring systems.

Comorbidity is the simultaneous presence of two medical conditions, such as a person with schizophrenia and substance abuse.

In epidemiology and actuarial science, the term morbidity rate can refer to either the incidence rate, or the prevalence of a disease or medical condition. This measure of sickness is contrasted with the mortality rate of a condition, which is the proportion of people dying during a given time interval.

A symptom (from Greek σύμπτωμα, "accident, misfortune, that which befalls", from συμπίπτω, "I befall", from συν- "together, with" + πίπτω, "I fall") is a departure from normal function or feeling which is noticed by a patient, indicating the presence of disease or abnormality. A symptom is subjective, observed by the patient, and not measured.  (+ info)
