And the bumps gone but there is bruise and redness. She looks fine, because she eats normally and drink milk normally. No vomiting. How serious this one? Please help me. Thanks

She cried for a few minutes but was fussy before and after the fall I fed her and she fell asleep for a few minutes so I woke her up.

Hi, My 4 month old daughter fell 50 cms off my bed i called 000 straight away and an ambulance came and we went to hospital and stayed there for 6 hours, then they said she was good to go. They said she has no signs of any real injury, But i just have the worst feeling about it all.She just doesnt seem herself at all. And have just noticed a hard bump at the back of her head down low. I was not in the room at the time so im not sure exactually how she landed. So my question really is would there be any possibilty of long term brain problems. They didnt want to give her any x-rays. Should i take her back there and try to get one and have her checked over again. And also when they were feeling her head would they have felt if there was anything seriously wrong. Thankyou

I have been being treated for achilles tendonitis for the past month but continue to get worse. The orthopaedic PA put me in a walking boot, told me to elevate and ice the tendon, and to stay off of it as much as possible. I have worn the boot and followed the other directions to no avail. Now the swelling will not go away even with ice application and elevation, there is severe pain and bruising to the back of my knee and I have muscle spasms in my calf at night. I just had an MRI done last week, but now my doctor is on vacation for a week so I will not know my results. What can I do to stop this pain and swelling and to heal this?
