My 5 year old has had recurring symptoms since June. For about 24 hrs he is fussy and/or irritable (quickly complains/cries if bumped or mildly injured by games) and will complain that he doesn't want to walk even across the room (says legs hurt), followed by a moderate to extremely severe headache, then sometimes immediately sometimes up to 24 hours after the headache starts, we notice a fever of 102 to 105 degrees and swollen lymph nodes in the neck. This generally clears up anywhere from 3-5 days from when the symptoms start.
Since June, he has averaged these symptoms at least once every 6 weeks. My doctor has tested him for the flu (negative), checked for ear infections and strep (negative) diagnosed him with sinusitus once, and basic cold the other times. Two fevers ago I had the doctor run some blood tests, I didn't receive specific results, but was told that the CBC and every thing else they checked were in the normal range.
It has been less than a month since his last fever and I am wondering if my doctor is right, and he is just more prone to infection than my other 3 boys and has overactive lymph nodes (which he will grow out of?) or if my Mom is right and I should be looking for another doctor.
