Patient had pontine haemorrhage. The doctor advised no surgery and patient was treated through medicines. The patient's condition is better now. Earlier he has slurry speech problem but that is getting better day by day. The problem is patient can't move his eyes left right but he is able to move them up & down and he also has blurred vision currently. I want to ask that will the vision and eye movements get resolved over time? How much time it generally takes? The pontine haemorrhage occurred on 13th July so it's already been 12 days.
My fiance 30 years old, drinks almost every night either 2 bottles of beer or 1 bottle n a quarter of some other alcohol. We are in a relationship from last 10 years n I think this habit is there from last year or more. I don't think he drinks because of any sad or happy emotion. He just likes to drink n feels relaxed. His skin has turned dark near heart. I m afraid he has some heart problem. He says it's just because he pricks there when he has anxiety. I don't know if both problems r related but I am worried for his health n my future with him. I've tried stopping him or trying to explain but it usually ends up bitterly. Please suggest. I am sure even if I try he won't take any medicine because he enjoys drinking n feels no problem in it.
The problem of early childhood trauma refers to disturbing experiences that take place in children during 0-6 years of age. The traumas that young children experience can be the effects of natural disaster, war or accidents or that of intentional violence like sexual abuse, domestic violence or physical abuse.
How Does this Condition Impact Childhood?
Traumatic events have a significant impact on your child's life and can break his sense of safety. The problem has been linked with a decrease in the size of the brain cortex. This is the part of the brain that controls several complex functions like thinking, consciousness, memory, attention, awareness, and language. The changes that occur as a result can affect your child's IQ as well as his or her ability to control emotions. As a consequence, he or she may harbor feelings of danger and become more afraid or it may manifest in other personality issues which are not very obvious.
How do you identify this condition?
Generally, children who suffer from traumas face problems in regulating their emotions and behaviors.
They may display signs like:
- Fear of new situations
- Being clingy to their parent(s) or somebody close
- Become easily frightened
- Display aggressive and/or impulsive behavior
- Are difficult to comfort
- Display deterioration in behavior and functioning
- Easily forget newly attained developmental skills
- Difficulty in sleeping
Depending on the age during which your child may go through a traumatic event, he or she can exhibit signs relevant to his or her age.
Children aged 0-2 years may also display reactions like poor verbal skills, memory problems, excessive temper, experience nightmares, etc.
On the other hand, children aged 3-6 years can face difficulties in learning as well as develop poor skill and learning disabilities, face problems in social interaction, may be unable to trust people and so on.
If this condition remains unattended or unresolved for longer, it may create personality issues and can deeply impact the individual's relationships, or equations in the society, as they grow up and even after they become adults. In fact, many behavioral problems can be traced back to childhood trauma. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychologist.
