My son who is 3 years old has zellweger's disease and he

Hi,My son who is 3 years old has zellweger's disease and he went through an experimental procedure of a live liver transplant where he now has half my liver (his father). The operation proved successful as the toxic metabolites in his blood went drastically down.He is now on immunosuppressant medication and lately he has been behaving like his eyes are hurting him. he keeps closing them and crying and sometimes the eyelids sowl a little bit (specially the left one).We took him to an eye doctor who said there is nothing wrong with him, we took him to a neurologist who checked his EEG during that time and said theres nothing wrong with him too.He is in so much pain and sometimes cannot open his eyes for 15 minutes straight. One doctor said it might be photophobia as its one of the side effects of the drug. But he is in so much pain even when its completely dark. Could it still be photophobia?Please help us with as much details as possibleThank you

My daughter almost 4 now suffered from sever reflux up to

My daughter almost 4 now suffered from sever reflux up to almost 2 years of age. Even up until last year I noticed she would sometimes still gag in her sleep. Recently she had a case of myiasis. From this she developed diarrhea and her reflux came back. She also developed a fever and strep throat. I believe I've treated her strep throat (wont have confirmation until Tuesday) but her reflux had only been getting worse and worse. She spent all last night throwing up because we made the mistake of letting her drink too much Sprite also.I know the symptoms of reflux. I've dealt with it with 2 children. Sour breath. Wet burps. Congestion/gagging when laying flat. I could go on. I know she has it bad.I just don't know what to do. It seems like a direct cause of the myiasis, but I know that is benign and the only symptom left from that is (mild diarrhea) which looks more like softening of her stool because she suffers from severe constipation.
