The increased blood flow to the lungs is what makes the swishing sound known as a heart murmur. ASD can be commonly heard as a heart murmur with auscultation of a stethoscope. The heart murmur can be difficult to hear as it is not very loud depending on the size of the defect. Atrial defects are usually detected before the age of thirty and can go undetected prior to that with no signs or symptoms. Some of the signs to look for in younger children are poor appetite, poor growth, fatigue, shortness of breath and pneumonia.
Running head: FIBROMYLGIA Gail A. Strong Fibromyalgia COUN 7361 Medical Aspects of Disability Professor Chyrle Cantrell May 4, 2011 Abstract Fibromyalgia is one of the most common chronic pain conditions. The disorder affects an estimated 10 million people in the U.S. and an estimated 3-6% of the world population. While men and children are affected by fibromyalgia, it is most prevalent in women. It can occur independently or can be associated with another disease, such as systemic lupus or rheumatoid arthritis.
Swelling extends deep into the lining of the affected organ. Swelling can cause pain and can make the intestine empty quit frequently, which results in diarrhea. This disease is very difficult to diagnose. In this disease all the layers of the intestine can be involved, and the normal healthy bowel can be found between the sections of the diseased bowel. (http://digestive.niddk.nih.gov/ddiseases/pubs/crohns/) The most common symptoms of this disease are abdominal pain, which often occurs in the lower right area, and diarrhea.
The start of the signs and symptoms is generally around the age 11, but may not happen until the mid-20s or even later. Myotonic dystrophy is a form of muscular dystrophy that produces stiffness in the muscles and the inability to relax muscles when wanted, as well as the muscle weakness of the other forms of muscular dystrophy. Symptoms are Weakening of voluntary muscles that control your arms and legs, Weakening of head, neck and face muscles, weakening of muscles that help with breathing and swallowing, fainting or dizziness, Clouding of the lenses of the eyes, and mild Diabetes (Mayo Clinic Staff, 2009). Other major types of MD are Facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy, Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy, Congenital muscular dystrophy, Oculopharyngeal muscular dystrophy, Distal muscular dystrophy, Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy, Myofibrillar myopathies, and also Spinal Muscular Atrophy which my oldest sister Ashley
* Atonic- Lacking normal muscle tone or strength. * Atrophy- Weakness or wearing away of body tissues and structures caused by pathology or by disuse of the muscle over a long period of time * Bradykinesia- Extreme slowness in movement * carpal tunnel syndrome- Inflammation and swelling of the tendons that pass through the carpal tunnel, which then create pressure
Also "chronic villus sampling", this involvs a sample of tissue (a biopsy) taken from the placenta and tested. The effectiveness of these tests would let an individuall decide if they wantedto continue with the pregnancy or have a termination. If a person did decide to continue with the pregnancy it would give them enough time to prepare themselves for the birth of a child with health problems
Patients with drug induced lupus have symptoms that affect the joints, heart and lungs. Neonatal Lupus occurs with antibodies cross the placenta in pregnancy from the mother to the child. Children that are born to women who test positive for the antibody SSA/RO are at greater risk of developing lupus, although this occurring is rare. The children who do end up with neonatal lupus will see symptoms like skin rashes and even liver underdevelopment. There is an even rarer chance that they could develop a life-threating heart condition called congenital heart block or
Chronic Joint Pain Alexandria Feasby American Military University Abstract Chronic joint pain affects millions of people in the United States every year. Although the term chronic means constant or lingering on, chronic joint pain can sometimes relapse, and recur once again at a later date. According to the source of www.rightdiagnosis.com, chronic joint pain is an “inflammation and infection of one or more joints, which results in pain, swelling, stiffness, and limited movement.” There are multiple types of pain, as well as numerous varieties of severities of level of pain a person may have. Some cases of chronic joint pain are due to the same medical conditions, such as arthritis, which is a very common cause
