Customer Question
My daughter started like two...
My daughter started like two months ago making a tick with her mouth. Later started yawning a lot. Last Friday she started nodding back and forth involuntarily and minutes after she started doing that she had a moment where she crawled down to my lap and was disoriented. Since then she is being nodding and when I asked her she told my her head feels heavy. I am terrified now. Please help me for God's sake.

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.
