“Every provider has a different system in place to address parent concerns when their child is ill, and parents should look for one that best matches their expectations,” Freed said. He added that a primary care office is often the most convenient, cost-efficient place to get care for your child. 2. Call Your Pediatrician First. If you can reach your pediatrician’s office, do so. They can give advice on the phone and, if you do need to head to the ER, your pediatrician can call ahead and tell the ER staff to expect you. In a serious emergency, parents should not hesitate to call 911.

3. Treat Your Child at Home. In 1969, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommended that patients stop seeing their pediatrician at 21 years old, yet some people continue. Most are walk-in clinics and do not take appointments. This means you can usually expect long wait times. This is the best place to go for acute illness such as fevers, ear pain, runny nose, cough, sore throat, vomiting, diarrhea, minor falls, and stitches.

Mistake No. 5: Not Sweating a Fever in a Newborn. If your infant is three months of age or younger, and has a fever of 100.4 rectally or higher it is a medical emergency.

Infants’ immune systems are not developed enough to fight off many infections. See your pediatrician or go to an emergency department if your newborn has a high fever. I do not understand why a parent would have fears about a childfree pediatrician.

Becoming a parent does not automatically grant you a medical degree, and wouldn’t all parents want to know that their child is seen by a well trained doctor? It does not matter whether the doctor has children, so long as they can accurately treat their patient. So we asked Bill Bush, M.D., pediatrician-in-chief at Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital in Grand Rapids, Michigan, to give us the truth about the things parents should stop doing, now. 1. Call your pediatrician if your child’s illness appears to change, becomes worse, does not go away after a few days, or if you are worried about any new symptoms that develop.

If your child’s illness has worsened, or if he or she develops complications, your pediatrician may recommend a. Vaccines do not make a mild illness worse. Vaccines only have a tiny fraction of the bacteria and viruses that children encounter naturally. Because of this, the immune system can handle getting vaccines to build immunity to diseases and fight minor illnesses at the same time.

Like any medication, vaccines may cause mild side effects. Parent–Child and Family Effects. Research on the effect of a child’s head injury and hospital admission on the family is minimal.

In a study of 5to 16-year-old children (n = 92) with traumatic injury (not exclusively head trauma), Hu et al 18 found that families who reported that their family had returned to normal by 6 months postinjury had children with higher levels of functioning.

For this reason, most pediatric offices keep open appointments in the schedule to accommodate calls for sick-child visits.

Before sending an ill infant or child home from the office (rather than admitting the child to the hos­pital), the provider must carefully assess the parent’s ability to cope with a significantly ill child and recognize signs and symptoms of worsening illness.

Parents, especially those with little experience with serious pediatric health conditions, commonly apply a normal developmental explanation such as growing pains or a desire for attention, or a benign medical explanation such as the flu, to account for the symptoms; primary care providers may do the same thing.

Parents may have difficulty determining the severity of their child’s condition and might either seek care very early in the course of the illness (when it is still very mild) or wait and present to the health care setting when the child is very ill.

  • Thanks! I have struggled with this (and so has my family because of putting up with me) for decades. Medicare doesn’t provide a lot of help for the CBT but Amazon has some GREAT self study workbooks with all of the steps, explanations and many exercises. I was even able to buy mine used, like new, not written in. Your face, expertise and experience are a huge reassurance and motiator to use the method though.

  • Its absolutely right and I’m crying as I listen this I can’t live like this anymore, I’m in constant fear, this time it’s my throat, I can’t function

  • I am 16, and definitely have health anxiety. I just want everyone to know, you are NOT alone. You are not alone if every time you get over a fear, a new one comes along. You are not alone if you always ask if other have gone through what you are going through. You are not alone if you google symptoms. You are not alone if you always check if your symptom is still there. You are not alone if you experience this kind of anxiety in different way. This form of anxiety is overlooked and there aren’t the most recourses to help. Don’t hesitate to reach out, and remember your feelings are relevant, but are in your head. I promise you, you are healthy.

  • Just had a concussion two weeks ago and I’ve been in and out of doctors offices and I have barely been going to school. This video helped me understand concussions better. Thank you!!

  • Me: googled accelerated plaque formation
    My mind: you have those symptoms, don’t you?
    My soul: well, this sucks.

    This is just life ruining. I’ll die because of anxiety and not of an actual sickness.

  • i have 2 swollen lymph nodes on my head and i cant stop worrying about them. like i wish i could just forget about them and live but my brain wont let me. my brains always tell me stuff like “u have cancer because of these bumps” “i know i have something serious and by the time the doctor relises it will be to late” and it SUCKS. i get all worried so i go to google to reassure myself that its just a swolen lymph node but then i get even more worried when it tells me i have cancer! life sucks because i dont want to be worried but i am, like my brain while writing this is whispering to me all these weird thoughts and i getting worried. this sucks

  • I think the director just gave up on the medical accuracy of this show,like “No one believes a Dr like House wud exist anyway,why bother putting on a mask during an operation.”

  • Thank you for this video! It was very reassuring. When I feel anxiety, it presents itself in a lot of different physical symptoms, and I’m starting to feel new symptoms I haven’t felt before (and not experiencing ones that I used to when I first was diagnosed with GAD). One symptom that remains consistent is a loss of appetite / nausea. Does anyone have any recommendations for dealing with nausea due to anxiety? I do feel hungry but as if eating will cause me to throw up. Thanks in advance!

  • I feel like God has heard my prayers and answered my fears by stumbling upon your videos.I have such anxieties about my heart and death after caring for my dad and watching him pass away.This really helped me understand and seek the answer i needed to seek help..Thank you!

  • I’m 26 and I have Health Anxiety and I’ve just finished my 30 minute exercise and this video gave me such reassurance and relaxed my body. This was very helpful, Thank you

  • I have thissssss… Tomorrow I am scheduled to go to the doctor for blood laboratory. Please share some tips how u overcomed this… Helpppp…

  • I’m only experiencing the psychological aspects of it. So I don’t know if the symptoms arise cause of my paranoia or cause I really do have a concussion. Thoughts?

  • I completed my documentary! Your graphic was extremely effective in relaying concussions and the mechanism of injury. Thanks so much! Let me know what you think!

  • I honestly thought it was just me, some days I drive myself insane googling every single symptom or thing that comes into my mind and diagnosing myself…I don’t know what i am so afraid of, I’ve built this fear around the Drs even having my blood pressure taken panics me and sends my bloody pressure and heart rate high af!! To the point I have to calm down to have it taken again…as soon as I’m out the Drs I instantly calm down…All I have to do is see 1 of those machines and I freak out. I know I am in control but some times I feel so helpless and want to burst out crying

  • i got concussion before and now i can’t sleep or concentrate and i’m sensitive to light and sound, but i also have aspergers in the autisim spectrum

  • I have high cholesterol, uric acid and sgpt. I’m obese 5’8 100kg. He gave me medication and asked me to exercise everyday and to avoid alot of things. I’m one week on and i saw some improvements with me. I’m young and with my will i can go through it. But with google search and reddit kept me on searching for even over 4 hours and triggers my anxiety�� and now everything that she said i did everything

  • For me Jesus was the solution. He completely healed me from Anxiety. I didn’t thought I will have a normal life when I suffered from this disease but Jesus Christ has given me a new beginning and now I’m 100% healed from anxiety. Try Jesus and I guarantee you that you will be healed completely.

  • What’s up with the “Hernia doctor” picking up her phone and taking pictures while still in surgery. Ever heard of sterile environnement!?
    That take was quite stupid

  • I had a cousin with a similar condition. He was allergic to the sun and even when going outside in the summer in AZ he had to wear pants, a long sleeve shirt, and a sun hat

  • I have a problem. I never got a concussion but this year in 8th grade I just started playing football. And my 3rd game at away game. And I was front line ruturn man but anyways this one kid came at me with a fast speed out his head down and hit me on my top left eye forhead and it didn’t start happening till that I keep having headachs in and off right were i got hit. I am dizzy in the morning

  • So I am a hypochondriac and after freaking myself out I use nicotine to calm myself down and then I worry about all the harm I’m doing to my body and the cycle continues. I switched to vaping but it’s still the same fears. I need help I’m going to call a therapist. I do feel reassured knowing I’m not a lone and relieved to know this is a legitimate problem I have.

  • I was diagnosed with this. The first hospital was going to attempt to amputate my left leg. I refused to allow the amputation and was transferred to a different hospital. They treated the black skin in the same way that they treat burn victims, with moist medicated wraps and lots of antibiotics. The cause of it ended up being extreme gluten allergy triggered by pregnancy and childbirth. My kidneys which were shutting down now function perfectly and I still have all my limbs. I realize this isn’t a common comment, but it has the chance of helping anyone it is worth it.

  • This is super reassuring. Anxiety and anxiety attacks are just horrible. Even though I know it’s probably anxiety, for some reason I need somebody to say it out loud to feel better and this video is definitely helpful, thank you!

  • I’m having horrible anxiety right now. I have a lot of twitching and pain and all that comes up is ALS. I’m losing my mind I can’t concentrate on anything. I don’t know what to do the emg isn’t until October I can eat or sleep. I know I sound like a baby and I’m sorry I’m just really worried

  • Yes yes yes. Been health anxious for 10 years. Sometimes it feels like it’s getting / has got a lot better. I now worry more about my partners health! Anyone else!?!?! I have complete panic attacks at the thought of him being ill and I watch him sleep to make sure he’s breathing. This is not ok. My sister said something to me years ago that made me think. She said I’m not really scared of dying because I’d be dead, I’m scared of not living. I’m scared of missing out. But the paradox of this is HA makes you paralysed in fear and you don’t live properly! Try living your life to the fullest, no one knows what’s coming. We could get hit by a bus but I bet none of us worry about that! It’s so strange. Ask yourself what you’re really scared of, deep down it’s not the illness or even dying, it’s missing out, not fulfilling your potential, missing your family, your family being heartbroken, leaving loved ones behind in pain. All we can do to control this is live our best lives today, tell people you love them and live every day like it’s your last.

  • The title should say 27 year old boy has not started puberty. Adulthood and childhood are both biological not cultural and social. It doesn’t matter what culture and society says it only matters what biology says. The difference between a child and an adult according to biology is a child has not sexually matured and can not reproduce and an adult has sexually matured and can reproduce. What ever age a person becomes sexually mature and is able to reproduce that is the age biology says a person becomes an adult.

  • I’m only 12 years old and I just found out I have this, and it’s the worth thing ever I was failing school cause all what I thought everyday was I’m rotting and I was gunna die early. There were nights it get so horrible my Heart rate went up a lot and I vomited A ton. To make things worse COVID-19 had just started so that just made things 10x worse every night I was coming into my parents room at 2:00 AM waking them up telling I couldn’t sleep then I proceeded to vomit until my stomach was empty then I went back to sleep. After about a month of this my parents told they just didn’t have the will power to do this anymore… So I stopped coming into the room and that’s when it got even worse and this time I had No one to help me… and life is horrible

  • So glad I watched your video before scheduling my 4th visit to the hospital.
    Problem is, I am a med student and tend to blow minor symptoms out of proportion in my head.

  • Dr. Tracey! I hope you get a chance to read this. This is the best video I’ve ever seen. Thank you so much for the reassurances. In fact this video’s been an eye opener regarding the heart burns and twitching. Thank you so much for your guidance. Appreciate it

  • i was able to get rid of herpes virus with herbal medication i got from Dr Ayomede, living with herpes virus made me realize that herbal medication are very powerful and is of great use

  • Thank you thank you thank you!!! You have no idea how much I needed this video!! Be started journaling and working on myself. This I needed this advice.

  • I get worried about my heart whenever I feel any bit of chest pain. I will end up getting it checked and then as soon as I feel okay my anxiety picks another body part/organ to worry about. Its like dude can you stop worrying one after another

  • I have this:( It’s like hell
    When I was like 13 I was convinced I had tetanus when I stepped on a nail in bare feet, then IBS, then when I was 15 it was Morgellon’s disease…
    It kind of went away till this year I guess being reminded of death all the time… (I’m 23 now) my nan passed away on new year’s day, I became really ill after my brother visited, I had HORRIBLE headaches for about a week as well as other flu symptoms and nausea, then they went away but then there was the covid thing, which I wasn’t too worried about but my brother got that and got better.
    But my hypochondria really came back in the last few months, first I had a bit of an eye infection and I thought I was gonna have like maggots crawling out of my eyes or infesting my brain or something, then after that I had this HORRIBLE stomach ache (both these nights I lay shivering in bed and this time I actually thought I was going to have a heart attack) then I had a bad cough and when I breathed in for about five seconds one day I had this thing where it hurt my chest when I breathed in until I breathed in really hard and it somehow stopped. And yep you guessed it I thought I had covid. Of course it turned out to just be a cough but then for about a week afterwards I had chest pains while breathing in. Then that went away. But then I had a headache and I thought “what if I have a brain tumour?” And now I have a toothache and worry about what if I have to go to a dentist? (I haven’t been for over 10 years because I’m too scared, I would literally be shaking violently and freaking out if I had to go to a dentist or doctor)
    I think that is the reason why I worry so much about my health. It’s the thought of not only being sick or injured but being hospitalised or being at the dentist, and being out of your control, having needles (which is another one of my phobia) inserted in you, or having your body cut open, or anything going wrong, or side effects of medications, and first and foremost pain. It’s all to do with pain avoidance. Right now I’m shaking at the thought of going to a dentist and having my teeth pulled out or something or going to hospital and having surgery and having my body cut open D’:

  • This video was extremely helpful, I didn’t know how badly I needed to watch this until I did. I’ve struggled with anxiety for the past few months and the physical symptom of my heart pounding and feeling it in my arms and thinking it’s a heart attack is hard to push away. I did an EKG with my doctor and did chest and she said everything was perfectly fine 2 months ago and that stress and anxiety levels need to be controlled. Two months later and I am starting to think that something new popped up but I know it is just my anxiety. Thank you so Dr. Tracey Marks. Thank you so much.

  • This video reallly eases my mind away from observing all the physical things I would feel and connecting it to a specific ailment. Everything just started when we had this Pandemic and my mind can stop thinking especially I when I read the news etc. Then I started to rely on docror Google and things connected me to more and more worries of health issues. I will and will make sure to listen to this video to strengthen my mind.

  • This video was life changing. I can relate to everything she was saying! The best part is reading all the comments. Feels like such relief knowing I’m not the only one constantly feeling uptight and paranoid! Our brains are too powerful and the moment we get into a negative state, it just takes over like a wild fire. I’ve personally been suffering from this for many years. Drinking alcohol and binge eating take it away temporarily. Definitely an unhealthy life to live and contradicting myself of living a healthy life. I feel like we should make a group via WhatsApp or Facebook to help one another through daily struggles…

  • Almost every word she said I could relate! Iv been dealing with this while running my own business and its quite tough. It got to a point I couldn’t think of anything else due to the axiety. Hope others here are doing better and Thank you Dr Tracey for your video. It helps put my mind at ease.

  • If someone could explain two things to me that would be great. First, couldn’t they have still healed the girl, even if they made the incision in her arm. Idk why the episode made it seem like it was just in the nick of time. Second, why did buddy and the parents seem like they messed up by getting together, when there was no way they could’ve known they were both carriers of that gene. Seems a little weird to me, but there might be a better explanation for it.

  • I am giving a presentation to football parents and this video would be perfect! Can I include it in my presentation? If so, how do I get the embed code?

  • My friend swung a metal thermos in my head as hard as he could today. It was bleeding and hurt like hell. I need stitches and I have a concussion. Let’s just say, payback will be a bitch for him next week.

  • This video has been posted twice. Once under the title “House 2.0”
    (this video) and another under the title “House Gets It Terribly Wrong”

  • And I have a little memory problem I takes me atleast 40 seconds or do for me to know what I have just typed or what have you. I’m a little sensitive to outside light more then usual. And it’s hard for me to concentrate without getting anoid and I try my best not to. Does anyone think I have a concussion cuz I don’t want to go in football and get hit again into more serious injury. Plz anyone tell me if I might have a concussion… Plz

  • Dr Tracy, first of all i want to thank you for all the help that you give to us. I just have one question, the constant fear of having a serious mental illness like psychosis or schizophrenia can be a kind of hypocondria. Thank you.

  • what happens to those patients who are in the top 10% who don’t heal in the average time period, say 3 years? what are the risks associated to having symptoms drawn out in such a way? the nature of my concussion was a slapshot to the lower jaw, closer to the throat/neck area, creating a torsion motion of the head. to this day i cannot perform technical, or heavily logic based functions such as math or scientific method and continuously have all symptoms associated despite treatments of all kinds

  • EVERYONE NEEDS TO KNOW THIS. I wish I did when each of my girls fell headfirst, one just riding her bike slowly, and the other from a hanging bar I installed myself in our home! Oh, and my first of ten concussions was when a dog chased me, fast! and I and my bike crashed in to a malibox. NEVER IGNORE A HEAD INJURY! Seek medical attention ASAP, and be alert to any mental and behavioral changes after the collision…thanks God there is much greater awareness and help available now!

  • My family has a history of somatic symptom disorder, it so deep it’s generational. I never had health anxiety until I got over my suicidal urges. Now I have such a phobia of death because I want to live now that I am hyper vigilant about my health. None of the symptoms of this disorder came up until I started recovering. Now every little thing that happens with my body (that’s different) I automatically think I’m going to die of a disease. Which is a huge fear of mine since disease runs in my family. Such as cancers, stomach issues. My mom also had somatic symptom disorder, to the point where she would go to countless doctor’s appointments.

  • Thank you so much! You have just diagnosed my problem, unlike anyone I ever met! I just kept laughing cause it sounded exactly like me, bless you for this video!!

  • I m from India. I have this shit.
    No one here understands. I feel tingling and burning sensation in leg n arm. I think i hv a deadly disease n i don’t know. I m going maddd guys. Thijs is hell. I spend hours googling symptoms. N then i m more anxious. Lord pls save my life.. ����������

  • I am new to the anxiety/panic attack scene and I’m in the hospital right now due to stress and anxiety and I feel like complete oof. I’m suffering from insomnia as well. I can’t focus or sleep. Literally cried because I was thinking of all the bad things like having COVID or severe heart problems. Every time I breath It feels like I’ve ran 2 miles and stopped only to hold my breath. I’d never wish anything like this on anyone. It SUCKS.

  • i’m 19 and i’ve been living with health anxiety for about 5 years now. and it’s gotten to a point where i’m too exhausted to even see a doctor and so i end up just thinking about these symptoms on my own. and most of them are seriously legitimate. for example just now i discovered a small bony lump on one side of my head which is sensitive to touch. and in fact the sensation i get when i touch it is the same as the mild headache-like sensation i’ve been getting all week at work. but at this point i don’t even know what to suspect and i’m just too worn out to go see yet another doctor and worry about something else like wasting my day away. perhaps the most frustrating part is that nobody seems to believe the reality of your symptoms, or any of you other sources of stress for that matter, which creates new stresses like a feeling of isolation. i’ve had an ultrasound earlier this year that told me i actually have abnormally enlarged lymph nodes (the report was marked as ‘probably useful information’, and i’ve been feeling those enlarged lumps for at least the past year now, although the doctor said they’re probably not serious since my lymph nodes didn’t further enlarge by the second time i did that ultrasound). isn’t that enough to prove that not everything i document is my own mental creation? but honestly i think the root issue with this health anxiety, at least for me, is really my underlying fear of death. i really hope that through God, as well as through self help content like this, that I’ll finally be able to pull myself out of this mental rabbit hole, and simply live my life out, even if i do really have terminal cancer or some incurable neurological issue. i might as well not have any of these and be crushed by a falling brick tomorrow. life is just this unpredictable.

  • That’s the best way to tell you are going to be a vampire. A diagnosis of EPP (though I doubt symptoms of EPP present acutely and result in emergency right away ) and rest of life afraid of Sun sounds better when you were going to make a child (anyone really) quadraplagic.
    Other than Did anyone notice that behind the unnecessary drama House is a really bad doctor.

  • It is like you are saying each word for me
    As if i have addressed these issues to you already
    I do watch it time n again its helping me to deal with anxieties
    Thanks Dr Tracy.

  • My life in a nutshell! Last week it was throat cancer from a small fleshy bump I’ve had in my mouth for literally 10 years. I stopped worrying about that now it’s Breast cancer. My left arm/armpit/ chest tingles like it is covered in peppermint oil which makes me think I have breast cancer. My life has actually become awful to live rn.

  • Medications and the withdrawal off them give many symptoms that make hypochondria and anxiety even worse and no one believes us and just thinks it in our head. Unending cycle of hell ��hope I can heal someday

  • I am not a medical expert, and this might sound really stupid but is is it possible to have him administered with testosterone for example using drugs or an injection?

  • Remember friends! You are not a qualified doctor. You do not have the experience or expertise to diagnose yourself with something that you only read or hear about. You are also…not alone. Reading the comments to this thread is reassuring that I am not alone with this. If you read this comment; you are not alone either.
    Google is a modern blessing but it is an absolutely terrifying platform for us health anxious folk. Literally any symptom of anxiety could mean impending doom. Literally an aching muscle could mean a central nervous condition. But it could be hundreds of different things. Literally.
    Your mind will physically manifest it’s fear and you will feel the symptoms of diseases. I know, I’ve been there and continue to be there. It’s horrible at times. It comes and goes. But it’s ok.
    Health anxiety can and does most certainly produce the physical symptoms and sensations of illnesses or diseases that you fear. But it does not mean you are actually ill. It can go well beyond the most documented sensations of anxiety such as sharp shooting pains and stomach aches. Our minds are very powerful things.

    I try to remind myself of this process that occurs every time I start to stress;
    1)I hear/read or see about a disease….
    2)I begin to think about it
    3) I begin to obsess over it
    4) it’s constantly on my mind
    5) I begin to feel the symptoms physically
    6) I then begin to worry that the symptoms are real
    7)the symptoms continue
    8) I ask for reassurance
    9) the cycle repeats

    Health anxiety is a scary thing because it can generate an attitude of ‘without our ‘health’ we can’t live a ‘normal’ life.’
    So I think it really takes a hold strongly inside of us. That’s why it’s hard to fight. But I think a big part of living with health anxiety is to accept it. Accept that you are suffering. Learn to accept that you can feel symptoms. But also to remind yourself that it’s ok.

    We don’t have to be consciously aware of our fears for them to physically manifest themselves in the form of sensations.
    It’s a vicious cycle of constant fear and panic however YOU are not alone.
    Don’t be afraid to talk about it. It’s important to talk. It really doesn’t make you any less of a person.
    I highly recommend CBT therapy!
    Be kind to yourself and tell yourself that you ‘can cope’ because you can.
    Peace and love to you anxious folk! I wish each and everyone of you the best and to remind you that i know exactly how you feel.
    Staying up late, worrying. I’ve been there, I’ll be there again but I know that it’s a combination of trauma, OCD and fear.

  • Trust me, concussions suck. I feel down the stairs and banged my head multiple times. Been about a month since I’ve been back to school

  • I had a concussion about month ago, i fainted, hit my head and had a seizure. I am not epileptic and this is the first time its happened, although i did donate blood that morning. I felt fine 2-3 weeks after so i decided to play some tennis, afterwards i felt totally normal. But last week i went on a car trip that was 7 hours long and for the past week Ive felt dizzy, tired, anxious, off balance, irritable and just plain sad… i had many tests prior to the accident, mostly positive….

  • mine started off last year when I was sick. I had the flu and of course I had a fever and so when I got into a hot shower I passed out. ever since then I can’t take hot showers because of the fear of passing out. it’s gotten worse though. whenever my eyes feel weird I feel like somethings bad going to happen. I always check to see if my pupils are dilated for some reason. also whenever my hand, leg, or face gets numb I automatically think that I’m gonna have a stroke or heart attack. i’m always constantly moving around for the fear of having to hear my heart beat are my eyes blink. when I went to the doctor for this I insisted on getting a blood test. when it came back they said I just had to take an iron pill. A while after i got on an iron pill, I started to think that I needed to take other supplements so I could be healthier. it just made my health anxiety worse. I currently have a therapist but they don’t think anything is wrong with me. I don’t know what to do and i’m only 13.

  • I can’t figure out if I’m concussed I haven’t been able to sleep for 4 days and have a slight headache and very little nausea while I was lifting weights so I don’t know if I have a concussion. I was at football and we hit Helmets but usually I never get a concussion from a collision of our helmets, anyways I’ll hope I can sleep ����

  •  For the people in the comments that are suffering from post-concussive syndrome: there is something you should try that may help lessen or get rid of the post concussive symptoms you are experiencing. From personal experience, seeing an osteopath and cranial sacral therapist made me feel the same as I did before the concussion (the problems with cognitive function and vision were completely gone after my 3rd session with an osteopath).

    Head trauma can causes misalignments of the cranial bones which effect the proper flow of blood and cranial fluid to the brain. Restoring the proper alignment can help with the symptoms of a concussion. I’d strongly recommend that anyone with post concussion syndrome see an osteopath or cranial sacral therapist with 10+ years of experience.

  • This video has given me the assurance that I’m a hypochondriac, now I’m on google trying to find out how hypochondriac will kill me.

  • Watching this series for the first time… I don’t really like medical shows but this one has hooked me. My jaw dropped when I saw him pulling out the tapeworm. Hell my jaw has dropped other times too…(eye pop)…House is easily one of the best tv shows I’ve ever seen

  • I literally could feel anything and I will search up symptoms. Like Ino I’m fine but my mind tells me different and I start to panic and think the worst and feel like there always has to be a label on what is wrong with me. It’s constant and happens all the time but when I’m around friends or family and do something to take my mind off it it can go but then I’m alone in my own head and it’s back.

  • Good video man I had a concussion like 5 hours ago and I didn’t know what to do I thought and worried a lot and then I watched this video and it chilled me out so thanks a lot you’re great and keep or up. BTW Iit happened during football practice

  • Question. Can you tell if you have a concussion with your pupil in your eye? Cause someone told me to stay still and made me close my eyes and then open them, looking at a light.

  • WOAH..27
    I read it and thought 23 but then I read it again..woah
    That’s sad.
    wont testosterone shots help,,,maybe it wasn’t advanced back then.
    Hope he has reached puberty by now.

  • I generally am a clumsy person, and I don’t think I have a concussion, but things have been different lately… I’ve been a tad sensitive to light and I’ve been way more forgetful than usual lately. I’ve been getting off and on headaches, which has never happened to me before… Also, I’m having a horrible time sleeping. I’ve never had a concussion, but it can always happen. (If something did happen, I don’t remember)

  • This is my life, but I actually had ovarian cancer, and I constantly wonder if I could’ve caught it earlier by being more proactive with my observations.

  • Thanks for the amazing video everyone who made it happen! I came across this video, and was well done!:-) Hopefully i’ll work at St. Micheal’s Hospital someday, since I float at different hospitals in the GTA.

  • My hands always shake and keep on checking every minute if my hands shake, searched it on google, says it pd and et. Maybe this is just all because of anxiety. So i recommend to do not search your symptoms

  • What’s your take on brain wave optimization technology to treat concussions, TBI, PTSD, depression? I’ve heard great things from it. Thinking of using it in my practice.

  • It feels like alot of people use “Hypochondria” as a way to dismiss people over anything but is it more pathological than that? Like is there a difference between a Hypochondriac and a “faker”? Sorry thats a really simple way to put it.

  • Wow, the description of the mental processes is spot on. I had to laugh out loud (and at myself) at “you google it for the 100th time then find someone on Reddit who reports their uncle complained of…” So accurate, and such a destructive cycle. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking the time and energy to do this video.

  • Chase is one of my least favorite characters, I feel like he has the weakest moral compass out of the entire team. House isn’t ethical always but he always does what he thinks it’s right and what’s the most logical, sometimes he cares more about the answer than about patient’s life but given he’s a genius and a sociopath I think that’s okay. But chase on the other hand……

  • Does anyone else have a whole bunch of symptoms like dierrea, ringing in ears, spasms, a jelly like feeling in the right side and awhile bunch of other symptoms

  • thanks for your help, ive been concussed for four days, and you helped ne understand a bit clearer, what that means, you’re exactly right about people thinking you are fine, when your not, i feel like im going to recover but im not sure,  

  • I was in a fight with a karate black belt, and he got me in the jaw couple times. I had a slight headache next morning if I moved my head too quickly. However I was fine the following day… Did I have a concussion??

  • This is perhaps one of the easiest to understand videos that explain a concussion and what someone should expect if they have one. I think where some people get into trouble is when they get into a rush to return to play or work and they aren’t honest about their symptoms.

  • Really not trying to be a man. But i feel a man knows when its a man. And I honestly think that’s really a woman. Honestly. And if it is a real man than im sorry

  • The more I rewatch these the more I realise I f***ing love Chase, he totally is House 2.0. For all Foremans attempts to seize power, Chase was always the one to full those shoes.

  • So I was in the hallway and and I fell on my head and I lost consciousness for like 30 seconds and that was a while ago and I still can’t remember what happened that week or day and my parents wouldn’t take me to the doctors to see if I did! I had headaches everyday for three weeks but now I’m better I just wish I went to the doctors

  • I recover from the Corona virus and it caused my axiety to hit the roof. I’ve been back to the doctor 4 or 5 times. He told me last time I was there I was extremely healthy and my lungs and heart is fine. I always feel better leaving the office but a couple of hours later I have shortness of breath and my heart start to beat fast. Then it goes away. Thank you Dr. Tracy, I feel so much better.

  • Unfortunately I’m having that because I used to Google everthing and the more i Google the more i get anxiety about cancer
    It’s really hell and sometimes it cause me some panic attacks
    I wish if i can just go over it

  • Thank you for this helpful video. This is my 1st time watching it and you spoke on everything that I’ve done to myself. I was going thru a anxiety attack right before I found this video and needed it. I will be your subsciber and listen to all your advice. I’ve dealing with anxiety for 5 years and just trying to find a way to cope with it and keep myself going. thank you once again and please keep updating your videos.

  • I miss all of these actors! I know house as “Stuart little’s” dad “mr. little” but I don’t know any other actors from any other works

  • I feel like concussion are not taken seriously but some people.

    I’ve, in only a 3 month season (hockey), have suffered 3 concussions, and now, at only the age of 16, am forced to retire from competitive hockey.

    All my life, I played competitive hockey (AA, AAA) and until 4 yrs ago, there were no hitting. But when hitting got included into the game,when we turn 13 or 14, a lot of people, who don’t know how to hit properly just went out on the ice to hurt people. Its not that bad since kids aren’t the strongest but the problem is when you start to play against older player(17 to 20). I played in junior A until about a week ago, and people, who, even at this lvl, still don’t know how to hit.

    So, in the first game of my junior career, i got hit to the head. I got back up and didn’t feel much but the team doctor wanted to check (luckily he did) and diagnosed me with a concussion. The next day, I went to see a specialist and said I’d be out for a week. The next week, I got cleared to play and had a couple of good practices and steped on the ice. Now, 2 or 3 games later, the exact same scenario happens, but this time, i;m out for 2 weeks. Get back, practice, and the following game, i get concussed. 

    Yesterday, was the first time since october 4th that I skated, and even then, it just didn’t feel right. I’m no longer allowed to play any contact sport since, well, my next concussion, if I get one, could have permanent damages.

    What i’m trying to say, to any parents reading this, if your child, playing any contact sport suffers a concussion, even a light one, think about all the ups and downs of what if he got a second or third concussion. Its not fun having a headache for a long long period of time, trust me.

    Concussion are a very, very serious injury, and it should be monitored very closely, you do not want any permanent effects.

  • To be fair, Chase is not House 2.0, he is House’s successor. Foreman was too similar to House and adding his own issues, he wasn’t cut out to be House successor. A boss and eventually Cuddy’s successor? Most definitely. And Cameron? Well…
    Moving on, Chase learned from his own mistakes as well as House’s and learned to stand up for himself and grow. If Wilson didn’t die and House fake his death, Chase could’ve had his own diagnostics team in another hospital after he left and more than likely would’ve done better than Foreman when he tried his own team.

  • One time I was at a horse show and my horse bucked me off. When I fell i landed on my head and my helmet broke. As soon as I got home I had a headache and fell asleep about two hours later I felt sick and went in the bathroom my head started to heat up and next thing I know I’m throwing up right after I threw up I felt a lot better and no longer having that sick feeling of headache that was a year ago. About a week ago I forgot what my kitchen and my school yard looked like. As soon i I remembered it I forgot again a second later. Is that bad? Because my friends think I have amnesia.

  • I’m so happy my symptoms match the ones in the comments assuring me that the random poking and finding lumps on my body and assuming diseases by checking “Dr Google” is all a waste of time.

  • do you have a concussion if you get light headed from just taking a shower the water hits my head and I feel light headed and dizzy

  • I’m a hypichondriac. It started few years ago when my granny was diagnosed with cancer, since then I thought I have it too, at first I was going to the doctors NON-STOP. I was always told I’m fine and one day the doctor said I may be a bit anemic AND I FREAKED OUT and since that visit I went to the doctors only once. And right now I’m SO SCARED to visit the doctor it’s been 2 years almost bc I think he is gonna diagnose me with cancer that has spread and it’s terrible, my mom also is a hypo…

  • Chase was always meant to be the successor to House, and he was the dominant rebelling personality that fit in line with House’s own mentality: Chase is subsequently fired after House deduces that he has peaked and can no longer work in a team environment because he most likely can take on the responsibility of cases by himself. If you watch House work with his “team” he uses them to piggy back ideas off of, but rarely ever lets them take the lead and when they do, they ultimately fail or stumble, leading to House saving the day. Chase became a similar character, where he rebelled and questioned every single suggestion, and brings his morality into question.
    That is why, in the season finale, Chase has taken over House’s former position, as he had the mindset for it from the start. The other members of the team were more aligned to management and hospitality, which shows frequently in their behavior. For awhile, Kubar was kind of intended to be the “young House”, but when the actor took up a real life job elsewhere, the writers were forced to scrap his character entirely. Chase most likely would have had Kubar as apart of his team.

  • Immediately after getting punchrd in the face, Chase keeps spitting facts. That’s why he runs the department at the end of the show.

  • Something I never noticed is that Chase said “either parent could have” but Cuddy said both of them had to be carriers. She lied to keep one of them from getting tested to blame the other.

  • The following doctors are bord-certified craniotomy physicians: Robert
    P. Bannister, Jr. (Bagram AFB), Ernest A. Canning (California), Father
    Greg Chisholm SJ (Harlem), Professor Paul Garcia Gonzalez (Missouri),
    Jerry C. Haggin (Virginia), Gloria Morote (Virginia), Carl Newlen
    (Ohio), Harlan L. Olson (Colorado), Stephen E. Phelps, Jr. (New York).

  • Does anyone ever get the sensation that they will choke on their food when in the middle of eating? I’ve never acctually choked on food but these bodily sensations in my throat make me tense up so much that I can’t continue eating. It makes me anxious about going out and eating with friends or family because it will make me seem really weird.

  • I have been diagnosed with depression, generalized anxiety, and panic disorder. Which I do know that I have but I’ve also wondered why no one else with those felt the way I do and I’ve never had anyone describe how I feel until this video. ��

  • I used this video to explain to my little cousin why he should always wear a helmet. Now he make sure he looks for that helmet before his bike

  • Hello!
    My name is Ruby and I’m a high school film student. I am doing a documentary on Post Concussion Syndrome and I was wondering if I could use part of your animation in my film. It would be a great help and I will credit you appropriately.
    Thanks!

  • When I was younger, one of my friends friends was diagnosed with brain tumours. This worried me because I’ve always been prone to have headaches since I was small (my mum gets them too, I think it’s genetic) but as soon as I heard this guy had brain cancer, I started worrying that I had it too. Eventually, I got better and stopped worrying so much about it. Recently though, a family friend was diagnosed with brain tumours. my symptoms have returned and I can’t stop thinking about it. It’s all too much for me at the moment, I’m hoping that when I get back into a schedule with school, I will get better again

  • I contacted herpes’ i was told there is no Herpes cure except treatment to control it. I totally lost hope all i could think was losing my life because it was so embarrassing to have this virus. A few weeks ago I read about a possible natural cure which was guaranteed. And I ordered the treatment after some weeks I got 100% cure. Now I’m so excited to share this testimony to every article for others living with herpes there is possible natural treatment to eliminate this virus email Dr Abumere his clinic email address; [email protected] whatsapp +2349021975055. he also have the following treatment…….hpv….Als…..cancer..

  • i ha ve a cuncussion right now from hitting my head of a slide at a water park of 4th of july:c i shouldnt be on this computer so im gonna get off now lol

  • I have a concussion from playing hockey and football missed a year of school and now it’s been over two years I still get head aches and can’t play any sports. Concussions suck:(

  • Hi Jenna, you’re welcome share the video with football parents.
    You can use the embed code provided by YouTube, found under the share heading just under the actual video

  • I play football and I had a concussion few months ago but I didn’t know it so I kept playing during two weeks before consulting our trainer but could that make my concussion worse?

  • My son just suffered a concussion and this video was recommended to me from a friend Great overview and gives helpful information about understanding what the person with the concussion feels my son is frustrated and suffers still a week after he was hit during a hockey game. Who cross checks the goalie? Concussions are slow recovery injuries and this video helps THANK YOU

  • The Doctor at the ER sent me to this video. I got a concussion yesterday from slipping and falling on the ice. hit my head off the ground. The video is really helpful in understanding my injury. 

  • Hi,
    Since the Covid 19 pandemic has started
    All was okay but recently since June end, I have started having anxiety and since few days its really extreme! I have been suffering. Thanks for this video����❣

  • Gallstones are not a byproduct of light allergies. Wtf????

    Gallstones are created when the gallbladder stops functioning, or is dying.

    When I was 16, I developed acute pancreatitis from a failing gallbladder throwing stones. Doctors assured me that gallbladders are not like kidneys, when they are at the stone stage, your gallbladder needs to come out. My entire family have all had to have their gallbladders removed.

  • I never likes chase for some reason. He was a good doctor but a lot of the time proved selfish. House on the other hand wasn’t kind but always selfless.

  • I m from India. And I m hving severe health anxiety. I just cry sometimes man. I hv gone mad. People here r so bad they think I m a fool n mad. This is hell.
    ��������
    If anyone is from india pls we can chat.

  • Anyone else just not able to comfortably listen to your heart beat? I have to sleep with music/ TV in the background so I can’t hear it while laying on my side.

  • This is by far the most fun and helpful video. I fell down the stairs last wednesday and Im home sick do to a concussion. I noticed having one after an hour that I fell, kept feeling a bit nauseous. Went to my doctor and he confirmed what I already knew. It is by far the most frustrating thing. So thanks for the awesome video. I shared it on my facebook to let people know what I have to do to get better.

  • Havent actually watched this but I refuse to believe the dad didn’t tell her they gave her some great prosthetics when she woke up just to mess with her

  • DocMikeEvans, I LOVED this video! I am currently a nursing student at UNMC. I have to make a webpage for an assignment and I have chose youth concussions as my topic. Could I use this video on my site? I will credit you appropriately. Thanks. Laura Lowe

  • He realised she has signs of a b12 deficiency but was given b12, the guy said beating other to the food and he realised there could be something else that consumed the b12…a tapeworm

  • I’m so glad for this video, thank you!:) I recently got a concussion in color guard when my friend accidentally brought his flag down on my head. I’ve never had a concussion before, and it’s probably just a mild smack, I thought I was overreacting some with all this sensitivity, dizziness, headachiness, sleepiness, and nausea… ness xD I have been hit on this side of the head before, though we never diagnosed a concussion (thinking back, there probably was one x( )

  • HELLO viewer am here to share my testimony on how I finally join the Illuminati hood and became RICH,FAMOUS AND POWERFUL, I tried all my possible best to become a member of the hood but I was scam several times, before I finally come across a testimony on net so I contacted the agent, I was so afraid that he will ask me for lot of money before I can join the hood but to my greatest surprise he only ask me to obtain the membership form which I did and today am so happy to say to the world that am one of the richest by having the sum of $360 millions dollars in my personal account as a new member and am also known all over the world with the business given to me by the Illuminati and also have power to do that which I want…… I know so many people may be on my lane also looking for help here is their_ Whats-app +2348059093541 viber out with this number +2348059093541)…..

  • Thank you. I discovered this video at such a timely point… a couple of weeks after having a collision between my left temple and a 45-pound end of a weightlifter’s bar. It’s true. People around don’t realize the seriousness of it. I certainly didn’t until I experienced on-going symptoms after the 7-10 days the doctor said would be phase one. How complex is this injury!

  • I was ice skating at age 11, tripped backwards and knocked myself out.  I woke up with people skate/walking me off the rink.  My caretaker said I was out for a good 3 minutes.  I don’t even remember skating backwards.  Probably should have gone to the hospital.

  • Anyone else really not like Cuddy? Dont screw it up?? Wtf kinda thing is that to say to parents who just learned their kid cant leave the house for most if her life

  • Thank you so much for these videos. I relate to this to a T. I know I drive everyone around me crazy �� but I can’t help it. It’s a horrible way to live.

  • Damn this lockdown made my hypochondria worse.. sitting at home all day, worrying that i have cancer. every single day its a struggle.Thing that’s worse is that i’m only 14 and i have used the last 2 years worrying about dying of a fatal disease. if anyone could help talk, i would appreciate it.

  • Hard to believe that the difference between the girl losing her limbs was two words.

    Think about it, what would have happened if Foremen had said “I don’t want to go blind” instead of “I don’t want to get burned”…… ��

  • My six year old got her first concussion this week while on the playground. Thank you for this video she was able to follow along and understand her injury.

  • OMG this is so me! Thank you for this video. It makes me feel better. I hate this, always looking for reassurance. Thank you for this video.

  • When they were talking about the girls quality of life, I heard the classic line from megadeth’s song captive honour “Life?! What do you mean life, I ain’t got a life!”

  • What about getting back to school? Not all concussions involve sports! It’s more important to provide help/guidance getting back to school than going back to sports!

  • On some level as mean as it sounds
    For people like House and me who have chronic bone, spinal cord, and nerve pain… watching someone whose never felt true pain suddenly having sensations of it come to them for the 1st time ever is super satisfying

    I know it sounds awful and in real life I don’t wish this pain on anyone

    And it actually may even be worse for her because it’s such a new sensation brain has to figure it out

    Where as people with chronic pain after awhile you really don’t knew any different it just becomes your norm

  • I personally think everyone no matter their health condition should take a dewormer at least twice in their life. You never know what you can pick up in your travels in life.
