4yr old: chronic headache, joint pain, rash, fatigue. Getting worse!
Hi, I am new to the boards!
My four year old son is sick and getting worse. The soonest we can get in to the ped neuro is mid July, but I am getting proactive! We feel that the docs aren't listening,or don't believe us!
My son has had the following symptoms daily for over a week:
Headache (intermittent, ranging from mild to severe)
Extreme fatigue...not interested in going to beach, racetrack, park, etc
arm and leg pain...joints, muscles and bone
Over the last several mos,he's had 'flare ups' of the same symptoms every few wks. In addition:
Nausea/vomiting ("flu" about 10-15 x)
Occasional eye drainage..like very mild conjunctivitis
red rash on arms n legs
A few episodes of extremely low temp... 94.7...normal.for him is app 97
*seems like all this started after a very bad flu bug landed him n hospital overnight for dehydration.
Tests run in the last yr (all normal):
Ct of brain
Bloodwrk for jra, leukaemia
r knee xray (where his joint pain began)
Docs seem frustrated w us, but we are getting very scared. Whatever it is is getting worse! Please help.
