My 5 year old has had pneumonia 3 times since October. She was never sick before this besides the usual colds. This all started once she began Kindergarten. It starts out with a cough with yellow/green mucus. She is always very stuffed up, worse at night, and even when she seems to get better her nose is still stuffy. I have taken her to an allergist where she tested negative for allergies (not food). I have taken her to a pulmonologist where they have done multiple blood tests which were all good except for the pneumococcal which was low. They did a Sweat Test for Cystic Fibrosis which was negative. They also did a CT of her chest which looked good. She gets this monthly with all of the same symptoms. It always seems to start in the head area, stuffy, coughing, runny nose, etc. They keep telling me its just a virus but why would she get this monthly. I am getting so tired of these doctors making me feel like I am bothering them when this is their job. Hope someone can help!Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
