My daughter has been describing episodes where it feel like
My daughter has been describing episodes where it feel like a whoosh or pulse in her ears/head. She says that feels really dizzy and faint whenever it happens and like her arms go numb. She has fallen a couple times when this has happened. What could cause it? I thought it was because she was anemic, but she has been on supplementation and her blood work returned fine last month. Thoughts? Suggestions?
My 9 yr old sons normal body temp is around 96. His current
My 9 yr old sons normal body temp is around 96. His current body temp is 99.2, 2 days ago it was 100.6, it goes down with ibuprofen, the comes back up to 99+. He's not being as "annoying" as he is when he is well. He started with a runny nose, then a sore throat and then the 100.6 temp. He is more chipper this evening and starting to eat and asking for food. Yesterday he forgot to eat and only ate a smoothie, chicken sausage and carrots. Do I keep him home till he is back to normal? It seems like a cold. I tested positive this spring for EBV/mono, never had it before. So that's at the back of my mind. He has a really faint mild rash on his upper chest.JA: How long have you had the symptoms? Do you have a fever?Customer: My EBV is in the chronic fatigue stage combined with menopause.JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?Customer: I had CMV in high school resulting in kidney failure. But I'm more concerned about my boy. His mild fever, stuffiness. I do not have a fever. Temp is 98.2
My daughter recently started losing weight and her skin
My daughter recently started losing weight and her skin turned darker. She also felt fatigued, her appetite reduced, and she often slept only 3-4 hours a day. This coincided with the school re-opening and sudden increase in her workload. Today I took her to do a CBC. The following results came through:Neutrophils 62.8 % (normal range 45-50)Lymphocytes 28.1% (normal range 40-45)Eosinophils 0.9% (normal range 1-6)Monocytes 7.8% (normal range 4-8)Basophils 0.4% (normal range 0-1)Platelets 472 x10E9/L (normal range 150-400)Peripheral FilmAntisocytosis, hypochromic, microcytic, poikilocytosis?

My daughter is age 7. She has always appeared to have
Hi, my daughter is age 7. She has always appeared to have good vision. Last year, she had a general check up with an optometrist who didn't detect any issues. Just recently she has mentioned that when she opens her eyes wide, her vision becomes "blurry". Does this sound normal? She basically opens her eyes as wide as she can and then says her vision is blurred. she has no other issues.
My 6 year old just told me that there has been blood in s
My 6 year old just told me that there has been blood in his stool for about a week. He says that it doesn't hurt going to the bathroom, but he said his one or the other of his sides (above the hips, to the left and right of his stomach) hurts when he runs too much. Any idea what this could be? Do I need to take him to the hospital right away or can we wait until we can get an appointment with his pediatrician.
My twelve year old (will be 13 in January) daughter started
My twelve year old (will be 13 in January) daughter started complaining last Thursday (11/19) that she was tired and that her legs (shins) were sore. She also said that her friend noticed that her cheeks were flush at school during lunch. She hasn't hada fever, but she's been complaining of fatigue, arm (shoulder joint) pain, leg pain since then and she's seemed a little pale. She said that they had started lifting weights in gym class on Wednesday. It's her last period of the day so it wouldn't have causedher flushed cheeks on Thursday. Tonight I noticed that the area where her right collar bone meets her throat appears swollen. It's soft, doesn't hurt and is about the size of two half dollars side by side, but it's almost squareish in shape. She has an apttomorrow morning. Should I push for an ultra sound and blood work? I'm terrified that it's leukemia or lymphoma.

My 5 kids have had mild on and off symptoms all week of low grade temps, headaches, mild nausea, fatigue. Finally today everyone woke up feeling better but now my 3 yr old has a rash on his cheeks. Is this fifths disease and are we ok having a birthday party Saturday since the fevers are gone and they shouldn't be contagious anymore once they're to the rash phase? I can share a pic of the rash.
