My 13 year old son started feeling naseaous on Sunday night
My 13 year old son started feeling naseaous on Sunday night and had diarrhea. Since then he's woken up each morning and complained of being naseous and thrown up a small amount. He has stayed home from school but by 2pm each day, feels much better, is hungry, and seems almost back to normal although he says he still has loose stools and cramping after he eats. He's been sticking with a very bland diet since Monday (no dairy, mostly chicken broth, crackers, last night a roll). So he does not have much food in him. Anyway he saw his pediatrician who said maybe it's just a lingering stomach flu and since its not dehabilitating, try to go to school and get back to normal. So yesterday afternoon he went to school and did homework and again, claimed he was fine at bed time. But woke up again this AM and started to vomit although now on Day 4, it's dry heaving since there's almost nothing in him. I asked the doc about doing blood and urine test, maybe a stool sample and she said not yet. I am concerned it could be appendicitis or something more serious.
My grandson who is seven years old has been experiencing
My grandson who is seven years old has been experiencing severe pain around his belly button on and off for several months now. He is saying now that it's under his rib cage on the left side. He has been to the pediatrician and they did blood work and found that his white blood cell count is low. His pediatrician claims that he is 100% sure that it's not appendicitis. He thinks it may be Mono. He told my daughter to put him on a probiotic and come back in a few days if he wasn't better. Initially, he claimed the pain was intermittent, for the last two or three days, it's been constant until this afternoon. He played for awhile and then said that it started hurting him again. He's now pointing to the left under his rib cage. My daughter checked him and it appears to be a knot about the size of a childs fist. It may be swollen, we can't determnine. She's wondering if she should wait to see his pediatrician or get him to the ER. Thank you.
