Does anyone who has convergence insufficiency have trouble maintaining convergence?


I can converge but have trouble maintaining it. I also seem to have some trouble with divergence. Anyone else.
----------

Ha ha, i think you actually answered your own question.
Convergence insufficiency means that you have trouble converging or maintaining convergence...
The trouble with diverging could be that your eyes are trying so hard to converge at near, that when you have to diverge they get tired. (They diverge when you look in the distance.)

Do you have glasses or eye exercises to help you out?

I have accommodation insufficiency when i wear my contacts while doing near work, and some glasses really helped me out.

If your having more eye trouble go back to your optom and see what they can do to help!
Good luck!   (+ info)

Is pain felt in kidneys when renal insufficiency develops?


I kinda have been feeling very mild pain in my kidney areas (on both sides of my spine at the lower back level) for the last several moths. I researched renal diseases on the internet, and kidney pain is not really mentioned as a symptom. Can something be wrong with my kidneys? The pain is very mild and it doesn't interfere with my daily activities; I forget about it most of the time. I know you will tell me go see a doctor, but I would appreciate if medical professionals or people with kidney disease could give me some insight here.
I don't have blood in my urine.
----------

The pain that you refer is more likely due to low back pain. Usually renal insufficiency is a severe disease that can be easily rule out with some basic blood test done by your physician.
The only disease related to the kidneys that your sort of pain might reflect could be a urinary infection, that gives other symptoms as well.
In case that you are thinking about an specifically disease that you observed within your family, then just go to your doctor and explain your doubts. A few urinary and blood test are going to ease your mind faster than trying to fish information on Internet.
From the information you give, the frequency that happens and the long term mild pain, it is more reasonable to think in low back pain, due mostly to muscular causes, bad position or simply stress.
The best you can do is to rule out a severe disease if you are already doubting, at least is what I would do if I were in your place.  (+ info)

What do 'mild mitral regurgitation' and 'trivial pulmonic insufficiency' mean?


I had an Echocardiogram done, and apparently I have these two abnormalities. My doctor says I'm fine, so I assume these are not of concern. But what do they mean?
----------

mild mitral regurgitation is when your mitral valve in your heart does not close all the way and allows blood to back flow in your heart and trivial pulmonic insufficiency is actually something that is present on most people and is similar to mitral regurgitation where the blood moving from you right ventrical to your pulmonary arteries can flow back a little since the valve doesn't shut tightly enough.

Blood flows into the right atria to the right ventricle then into the pulmonary arteries where it continues to the lungs to pick up oxygen then goes back to the heart in through the left atria to the left ventricle then our the aorta to carry the oxygen you just picked up to the rest of your body. In your situation the blood isn't flowing as efficiently as it possible could which may leave you feeling a little tired and weak but in general, if its only mild, then its nothing to worry about like you doctor said.  (+ info)

I have a medical condition called venus insufficiency where the valves in the veins do not work?


this causes edema (swelling) also the lower legs become stained reddish brown caused by blood leaking into the skin
Is there anything that can remove these stains or at least reduce them other than make up, some non surgical way. I do use comprssion stockings but that only helps to redudce the swelling and does nothing to clear up the staining
Thanks
----------

sundown- what you have, by another name, is varicose veins - an extremely common condition as people get older, especially if they are overweight, sit a lot, or have given birth to children. When the blood (red cells) leaks from the vein into the skin, they stay there, break up, and release their hemoglobin reddish-brown pigment which can perhaps lighten with time or remain for months, years, or life. You can find much more information if you search on Google for "Varicose Vein Fact Sheet." Your best bet would be to ask your physician or look in the phone book under vascular for a nearby vascular (venous) treatment center or call your local hospital or county medical society for the names of any physicians who specialize in treatment of varicose veins. Good luck.  (+ info)

Do you have information on convergence insufficiency disorder?


I have a nine year old son. Two years ago at an eye exam in Rochester, NY., the Doctor told me my son had nearly perfect vision but that his eyes did not converge properly. That there was treatment but it was very expensive , not covered by insurance and most likely it would correct itself over time. My son also has a mild to moderate sensorineural hearing loss in his left ear. He has a full scale IQ of 116 WJA III broad reading 69, broad written 75 and broad math 97. He is eager to learn through disscussion but struggles with independant learning. He is in a special education class and has shown some improvement. However I feel we are not adressing what is causing his delays. Dear Abby had an article on CID and I noticed many similarities. He gets sleepy when he reads, and he seems to jump around the page a lot, among other things. If you are aware of any testing or treatment options around Osceola County,Fl., PLEASE fill me in. Help me help my child. Thank You for any input.

My hair is falling out, could this be due to an vitamin insufficiency or something?


i eat a healthy diet, and i'm not ill or anything....

what could be happening?
----------

The most important cause of loss of hair is inadequate nutrition. Even a partial lack of almost any nutrient may cause hair to fall. Persons lacking vitamin B6108e their hair and those deficient in folic acid often become completely bald. But the hair grows normally after the liberal intake of these vitamins.

Another important cause of falling of hair is stress such as worry, anxiety and sudden shock. Stress leads to a severe tenĀ­sion in the skin of the scalp. This adversely affects the supply of essential nutrition required for the healthy growth of the hair. General debility, caused by severe or long standing illnesses like typhoid, syphilis, chronic cold, influenza and anemia, also gives rise to this disorder. It makes the roots of the hair weak, resulting in the falling of hair. Unclean condition of the scalp can also cause less of hair. It weakens the hair roots by blocking the pores with the collected dirt. Heredity is another predisposing factor which may cause hair to fall. I would try eating a verity of foods.  (+ info)
