I am in tears worrying about my 3 year old son he has so many little things going on or that have happened I m not sure if there is something further going on or just bad conisidence. His current doc doesn't seem overly concerned about any of these things and takes more of a wait and see approach. It is making me feel like I'm a nurotic mother. He was born with hypospadias (mild), he has what I think is frey syndrome from a high forceps tramatic delivery (his doc did not investigate this)He gets a red rash down the right side (not raised) of his face from many foods which is why I think it is freys, I was pointed in this direction by another doc), he has a heart murmur, and last year developed a lipoma on his forearm, he is a very picky eater and goes through days of not eating and then through a period which seems like he can't get enough food (I had though of it as he was just going through a growth spurt).He often wakes in the night he has never slept through a night and wakes anywhere from 1-5 times, he often talks about "the itches" and asks me to scratch his back. He also often wakes in the night despratley thirsty and comes to our room with a juice box he has helped him self to,I guess he could just be thirsty some nights IDK. I have noticed that I thought his face has been swollen before A couple of times but dismissed it, a couple weeks ago he seemed sick(just not himself) his hands were definately swollen which is now gone it only lasted a day. In the past 2 weeks I have notice the facial swelling(more notciable on the left side and in the am), so I took him to the walk in clinic and she said his glands are definatley swollen and as well as his face but nothing that would be causing it ie ear, or throat .She put him on antbiotics and stressed that he has to be seen in 10 days. My husband noticed last night as well that he has a lymph node behind his ear that is swollen and has broken bld vessels over it I hadn't notice this before so the doc at the Walk in didn't see it. I am so worried that this swelling has something to do with his heart or kidney related (b/c of hypospadias) so in the 10 days he will see his regular doc and I m sure nothing further will be investigated( his reg doc was on holidays which is why we went to the WIC in the first place)...b/c the swelling will likely be gone....I have noticed this swelling before and it is something that comes and goes...I feel like if it is gone the antibotic will have had nothing to do with it I feel there is more to it than an infection. I have that feeling something is wrong. Any insight or avenues to check out would be appreciated I am at my wits end...Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
