Question: Can forcefully pulling door shut towards myself with anger/quickly with my hand cause my forehead bone or any other facial bones to move backward/inward or cause any change in position backward inward or in any direction or cause flattening of forehead bones or any other facial bones (cheekbones, jaw, etc)? I was pulling door towards myself, door did not hit the face. Thanks!

Brief Answer:
Would not change facial bones in anyway

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXXXXX

How are you doing?

The situation you described - forcefully and quickly pulling a door shut - would not cause any changes in backward, forward, inward or any other direction. It also would not cause flattening of the bones of the forehead or facial bones. Hard jerking or jostling would not cause any effect on these.

It would take a very big direct force to move, or break any of these bones.

So forcefully and quickly pulling door shut towards myself would not cause any change in position backward/inward or in any direction of forehead bones (any part of forehead bone or entire forehead bone) or facial bones? Thanks again.I was pulling door towards myself. Thinking it’s a paranoid thought.

Brief Answer:
Thoughts on this

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX

No, pulling the door shut towards yourself, no matter how quickly or forcefully you would be able to do this, would not cause any changes in the relationship of the bones of your skull including the forehead, cheek bones, or any other facial bones.

I don't know that this is paranoia, but perhaps if you think about something like this over and over, and it causes you anxiety, then it might be a type of OCD and you might get benefit from medications such as SSRIs and cognitive therapy.

If it is more a matter of believing that this change in the skull bones is happening, then it can be a delusional thought process, and there are meds for that too.

Either way, a good psychiatrist or psychologist may be able to help you feel less anxious about recurring thoughts and worries like this.

Detailed Answer:
Hi -

No, given what you described, there would not be any change in position backward/inward or in any direction of forehead bones (any part of forehead bone or entire forehead bone) or any facial bones. None at all.

My 18 year old high school son needs help and testing for hereditary diseases which he has symptoms of from both sides of the family, including ADD or ADHD, Bi-Polar, Aspergers, and Paranoia Schizophrenia. Also, possibly dyslexia and/or the math version may be affecting him, (he is home-schooled and beginning 11th grade) and he has sleep disorder problems. He has already been diagnosed with anxiety. Does St. Lukes Quakertown test for these ailments I have listed? We live close by, and like St. Luke s that cared for my husband, and son s father before he died in August. Traveling is difficult for me because I am handicapped. Both my son and I may be helped by some grief counseling. I am 59 and also need some testing done for symptoms of inherited disorders, and I have some diagnosises already. I need treatment too. Can you help us?
