My son is on 5 medications without a diagnoses! He takes Singular, Zyrtec, Nasonex, Asmanex and an antiacid. He just finished a round of antibiotics yesterday and that was his 6th round just this year. He has a heart murmur and the cardio dr. told me his murmur was innocent but after picking up report in his notes he writes he is unsure and wants to check again in 2 years. He sweats extreamly bad and tires very easy doing normal activity others his age do. He had blood work done and test showed he didn't respond to but 3 out of the 23 strans of the s. pneumonia vaccine they give everyone. His platelet count was high and lymph were low also. But still no diagnoses! He was hospitalized at age 3 with pneumonia too. I just can't understand why they can't figure out what is wrong and treat him with the right medication instead of fishing! He can't swallow very well and chokes on everything he eats so he drinks milk to keep him full and nutripals for the nutrients. I am just lost and don't know to do to help him! I am taking him to a new Dr. on Friday but they will probably think I am nuts! Any ideas???
