Please can anyone help? My 8 yr old son has been sick for 3 weeks now. At first the diagnosis was strep throat, which has since cleared up. However, he continues to run a constant low grade fever, is very fatigued and sleeping a lot more than usual, he has swollen glands in his neck, his tonsils are still red, swollen and have white patches, he is losing weight, and having headaches. He tested negative for mono and the dr. ran some more blood tests yesterday that will not be back for one week. In the meantime he is on steroids to help reduce swelling of the tonsils. Does anyone else know what I can do for my little guy? Should I get a second opinion or simply wait for the test results?
Cany anyone help PLEASE?!?!?! I am beginning to go crazy with worry!
