Ask Your Own Medical Question

Hello...I have answered this question when you had requested me directly please.

I would like to know what happened to the further proceedings, because you told you would fix up an appointment with the pediatrician because as a mother you were concerned that it was not a simple muscle twitching.

Muscle twitching or ocular myokymia is entirely different from what I had suggested, a habit disorder.

But I would like to know and learn from my professional colleague if his physical examination yields something to help the kid. I was not fortunate enough to have a hands on physical examination and I had given my opinion based on history I obtained and discussion.

I am open for discussion and eager to find out what happened further to our discussion please.

Kind regards ***** ***** Sumanth Amperayani

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
