Hi there, my 3 1/2 year old fell on the stairs about an hour ago. She complained about back pain, and did not want to walk or sit, but now fell asleep in her bed. What should I do?
Hi,Welcome to Just Answer!If you have questions after reading my answer, be sure to let me know.Give her tylenol for pain relief.Get her examined by her doctor to rule out bony injuries in the back.Immediate medical attention is needed if any of the following has occured -1. Bleeding from the ears, nose or throat2. Seizures3. Loss of consciousness4. Persistent vomiting.
Should I wake her up to see a doctor, or wait how she feels tomorrow?
Right now I can only take her to the Emergency Room at the hospital...
If none of the above mentioned (the four points) had occured, you can wait till tomorrow morning. If any of them had occurred, take her to ER immediately.
No, none of the above occurred. Thanks.
