my daughter who is 17 months old was a very active and humourus kid.
suddenly 10 days ago she started sleeping through the whole day and night
she doesn't want to leave her bed and won't fix her eyes on anything or anyone nomatter what we do.
no fever detected. she is teething in 1 molar.
anyway, we took her to a doctor who advised she had badly inflammed nasal pockets. gave her antibiotic, mucus solvent and nose drops
no improvement.
we did blood test for bacterial infection, it came infection slightly high but that would not explain the weired symptoms.
after several doctors and stronger antibiotics we r still clueless
my daughter is lying in her bed on her stomach all day and night
we feed her but she is very nervous and does not want to walk ( she can if we push her)
we r currently awaiting results of her head ct scan with contrasts as investigating an unknown head injury. i am just wondering what next
i miss my beautiful daughter and her dad and i are devastated and feel helpless.

  • Does she go to a babysitter? Hopefully, the brain scan will be helpful.
