My 9 year old son had strep throat diagnosed on November 20, 2006. He has continuously had headaches, fever up to 104, sore throat, etc. ever since. I have taken him back to the pediatrician several times. At one point, the pediatrician was out of the office and the nurse said to call his neurologist for the headaches because he has a history of migraines. She said to call his gastroenterologist because he was vomiting, he has a history of GERD. I asked if we were supposed to call his asthma and allergy doctor for the congestion and sore throat, too. He will go 3 to 5 days without fever, then boom! 102+ temp, major headache, sore throat, and today he has cried with body aches all over. We went back to the doctor, but because I had given him Motrin and Tylenol all day, his fever was only 99.3 in the office. The rapid strep was neg. the mono titer was neg., wbc's were a little low 3.4 and the clotting time was 13.8. The flu test was negative last week, but they did another and sent it to the lab for a culture today. Can anyone point me in the right direction? What do I do now? Thank you...
