Cerebral Palsy Definition, Symptoms, and Life Expectancy

Posted: February 12, 2018 at 4:42 am

What are specific treatment plans for cerebral palsy? After the initial evaluation, specific treatment plans are outlined for each child: If the child has seizures, the treatment is based on the type and frequency of the seizures. Complete seizure control can often be achieved using a single medication, but some children with cerebral palsy have particularly difficult-to-control seizures Continue reading

They range from skin rashes to bumpy rashes or including blisters. Continue reading

Some with high blood pressure report headaches (particularly at the back of the head and in the morning), as well as lightheadedness, vertigo, tinnitus (buzzing or hissing in the ears), altered vision or fainting episodes.[20] These symptoms, however, might be related to associated anxiety rather than the high blood pressure itself.[21] On physical examination, hypertension may be associated with the presence of changes in the optic fundus seen by ophthalmoscopy.[22] The severity of the changes typical of hypertensive retinopathy is graded from IIV; grades I and II may be difficult to differentiate.[22] The severity of the retinopathy correlates roughly with the duration or the severity of the hypertension.[20] Hypertension with certain specific additional signs and symptoms may suggest secondary hypertension, i.e Continue reading
