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

Hi. I was told after my first child that the lumps that are on my collarbone and up my throat are caused by the hormone that loosens your joints and ligaments and something has broken off? Im pregnant with my second child due in a week. The lumps have now grown, caused purple bruises where they are growing and are so painful it makes me cry. What are these and what treatment can i have to get rid of them. Please help!

Hi Dr, I am a 45 year old male with a history of factor five laden. But have been off my warfarin for more than 3 years on doctor's advice. Haven't had any additional problems in the last few years, however, the last few days I have a sore lower inner thigh, running from under my groin to knee as a red sunburn or rash that is sore to touch (feels bruised). It has grown from a small patch to the knee in the last two days. The muscle also feels sore. I cycle and did so on Fri and Sat (the bruising feeling started Sat morning) I had originally thought the bruising pain was from my young son kicking my thigh with his shoes on but it seems to be getting worse. Other than that I feel no other symptoms. Can you give me some advice? Thanks

My 5 year old active daughter woke up in the middle of the night (3 nights ago) complaining of pain in her right leg. She had a noticeable bruise on her shin. By morning, we noticed black and blue marks on both legs but the pain was no longer. We took her to our local ER who did bloodwork that came out normal. They recommended we go to our primary care pediatrician. He took one look at my daughter and diagnosed her with HSP. Her urine was normal. In looking at cases of HSP online, the symptoms don t match with my daughter s. She never had red marks -- they are all black and blue. She doesn t have abdominal pain either. Our pediatrician said it was nothing to worry about but as you can i agine, looking at your child with bruises all over is heartbreaking and scary. We have decided to take our daughter to a Rheumatologist but they cannot fit her in until mid June. Now I am contemplating taking her to the ER at our local Children s Hosipital (CHOP) so we can get answers more quickly. Just looking for some advice. Thanks for your help!
