How do you know if you have down syndrome?


Serious Answers Please...
There are various spectrums of down syndrome, some more severe than others. I'm 28 and i'm realizing now i don't quite think the same as others...and have a hard time communicating as well. I have short attention spans and reading puts me to sleep. I have gastric probs and is always nervous (visibally). I have a hard time hearing at times and often have to ask "what?" My speech is slurring and often speak one sentence at a time. I've been researching and found out these symptoms fit into dyslexia or autism. Who do i goto for help with this? Do i call a normal doc and ask if i'm ill?
what kind of a doctor? a phsych? a therapist?
----------

You absolutely do not have Down syndrome. There aren't really various spectrums of Down syndrome. You either have the extra #21 chromosome, or you don't. Just like in the general population, there are varying degrees of intellect, ability and talents in individuals with Down syndrome. I recommend you speak with an Internal medecine physician, and maybe request a referral to a qualified psychologist to find out the source of your difficulties.  (+ info)

what is the name of the syndrome that requires children to read with colored overlays?


I know the short name is SSS. Some people may have to use colored lenses to help them read print in black and white.
----------

Try this link below. It's a dicussion between dyslexia and SSS (Scotopic Sensitivity Syndrome). One of the paragraphs towards the middle states something about certain colored overlays help with perception in SSS.

Preexcitation Syndrome and short PR in 6 year old?


I am a single mother from Romania and my son was soon diagnosed with Preexcitation Syndrome and short PR. He performed two ECG's and doctor's opinions differ very much. One says he needs cardiac ablation, the other one says he is healthy. I am very worried and I need to know what is best to do, My son is only 6 years old and goes to school. I scanned his ECG's and I want to show them to a cariologist in the US, Canda or the UK for a third opinion. Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart.
----------

The current preferred therapy for Wolff-Parkinson-White (WPW) syndrome is catheter ablation as per the information available at: http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/000151.htm
(Medline Plus from US National Library of Medicine)

But first it has to be checked whether the PR interval is really short for his age and whether there are other features of WPW syndrome. It is better to get opinion from an expert in your region who will be able to evaluate him directly than to get a remote opinion without direct evaluation of the child.  (+ info)

can fibromyalgia syndrome and chronic fatigue last only a short period?


My Dr.s are now saying I have fibromyalgia syndrome and chronic fatigue. I had symptoms that lasted for 7 weeks now going on the 8th week I am feeling much better. I am worried that I will relaps at any time and afraid to drive or do anything that might bring it back. oh I also find myself taking deep breaths from time to time. Does this have any relation to eather of these syndromes?

Can eather of these syndromes last only a short period as 6 or 7 weeks and how do I know if it will stay gone or come back soon?
----------

unfortunately I hate to be the one to bring you bad news but I must tell you that fibromyalgia is a chronic medical condition that will go away and flare up again. I should know, because my suffers from fibro since she was diagnosed in 1996.

short pieces of flat stool....could it be Irritable Bowel Syndrome?


I never noticed until now that from time to time in my bowel movement I have short pieces of flat shaped stool or close to flat shaped. This usually occurs if I have a stomach cramp after I eat and it goes away if I make the bowel movement or if I get the feeling in my stomach and I kind of force it out when I don't really need to. I've made an appointment to see the Gastroenterologist. But what do you think it means? could this be irritable bowel syndrome? I don't have a family history of colon cancer an my family claims they've had this kind of bowel movement too. Aren't I too young to have colon cancer so wouldn't this most likely be IBS? If I eat greasy foods or dairy products I usually get stomach pains afterwards
I'm 26 years old

more like infllammatoy bowel disease your rectum is inflammed but you are never too young for anything i was 14 when i was diagnosed with Crohn's and i'm 29 now  (+ info)

Does anyone know of a doctor in the UK who is familiar with slipping rib syndrome, aka rib tip pain?


aka clicking rib, etc.

Thanks
----------

DESCRIPTION:
Slipping rib syndrome, also known as Tietze's Syndrome, occurs when one of the ribs intermittently slips out of place, causing a stretching of the ligaments that support the front and back of the rib. The tenth rib is usually the culprit because, unlike ribs one through seven, which attach to the sternum, the eighth, ninth and tenth ribs are attached anteriorly to each other by loose, fibrous tissue. Although this arrangement provides increased mobility of the lower rib cage, it also results in a greater susceptibility to trauma in this area.
While these symptoms usually improve within a few weeks, and resolve completely within a few months, there are patients in whom this problem persists for some time. See your doctor to ensure nothing more serious is going on. Occasionally, costochondritis will be treated with cortisone injections, but this must be discussed with your doctor..

It could be that you have a polyp or hard stool in your rectum causing your stool to flatten as it exits. If it does not get better I would definately call a doctor.  (+ info)

Does my newborn son have a syndrome? He's got short neck which doctor's call webbing and born w/ club feet.


My baby is now 13 days old. He was born with club feet which the dr.'s found through ultrasound when I was pregnant. So I was expecting club feet , but I noticed he's got a short neck which the doctor's call webbing. He can't move his middle fingers on both hands plus the club feet. He was born a day before the due date so he's full term. A day after he was born he was rushed to another hospital for the cardiologist found something wrong with his heart and told me my baby would need to go under a heart surgery. He's got holes in his heart and his Aorta was very small. He had his surgery Dec.19 and they left his chest open for a few days. They just closed his chest yesterday but still have lots of cords on him. He still have the tube in his chest that takes excess fluid out but he's opening his eyes and moving now. Dr.'s think my baby's got a syndrome, which is similar to turner's, we need to take him to a genetics dr. when he gets out of hospital. What syndrome could it be?
----------

not sure what it could be but you probably already know it's not turners as that is a female only condition.. Hopefully a blood caryotype test will show if it is a syndrome and what it is.
hope you get answers soon..........  (+ info)
