My five year old has been sick for 4 weeks now. He wakes up with a headache, neck pain in the back of his neck, belly ache, and will often vomit. If he doesn't vomit upon waking, most of the time he will at some other point in the day.
His headache will wake him up at night.
He also complains of severe belly pain.
He will be sick for 3 to 5 days and then seem to be getting better for 2 or 3, and then will get sick again. Even when he is better, he is still not well.
He says he is tired all the time.
He has had 3 rounds of bloodwork -CBC & Sed rate - all normal.
He has had an MRI - it was normal.
He had an xray of his belly, it showed he was really constipated.
I took him to a GI doctor for kids, constipation was better (thank you magnesium citrate) but he was still a bit constipated. The GI doctor says to give him miralax, which he keeps down about half the time, and if he is still sick in a month, he will do an endoscopy.
The soonest I can get him to see the neurologist is December 8th.
I am considering handcuffing myself to a chair in the neurology waiting room or something.
