We are scrambling our brains trying to figure out what is going on with our 5 year old son. We are getting bounced around Dr.'s and no help! He has had headaches DAILY on his forehead, above ears, and back of neck; sore throat; feeling fatigued; a mildly stuffy nose and elbow/knee pain for the last four months. It never seems to go away. Tylenol, Ibuprofen, decongestants don't help. Had his adenoids removed - no help there. MRI of head showed mild sinus disease in maxillary, ethmoid and sphenoid sinuses. He's been on nasal steroid spray and antihistamine for 1 month - symptoms still there. He's also started on low grade fevers occasionally in the evening, maybe 1-2x per week. Been on different antibiotics for other illness and didn't seem to make a difference. Our poor little guy is suffering and I don't know what to do!!! Allergist? Neurologist? Rheumatologist? Honestly it sounds like sinus infection to me, but there doesn't seem to be one. I had a doosey that mimicked all if the symptoms, but there doesn't seem to be an infection. Did some bloodwork and his SED rate was 50 vs. 10, which is pretty high but isn't a specific indicator of anything, just that something is going on. Any ideas???Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
