My 8 year old son has been complaining of leg pain, he gets bruises along his legs on top of the bone in vertical line, he seems also to be loosing weight, he is just slightly smaller than kids his age. He has milk allergy and poison ivy allergy. From a very active kid he has turned into a much more passive one. Lately he has been also complaining of lower back pain.
I know all the symptoms are vague, and that is why the doctor just attributes it to growing pains, the thing is he doesn't seem to be growing.
Symptoms happen sometimes together or on their own. :confused:
Last year he had an illness that when I searched the symptoms it always came up with Kawasaki, it was never diagnosed as such even when I suggested, it left me with the doubt because he had red palms and then peeling, he had the fever etc. I'm worried that because it was dismissed as a common virus that if he wasn't treated properly maybe his current symptoms be due to that.
My other kid that has me worried is my 3 y/o daughter, she also had the "virus" last year.
She is also complaining of back pain (for 3 months), has been to the doctor twice because of cloudy urine, and was treated once for infection.
She still has the back pain and the cloudy urine after treatment, but she was clear of infection on the check up.
She drinks diluted juice and milk a lot and sometimes water. The doctor wants to take an X-ray of her back if she still complains this weekend of the pain (she has). :confused: Will the x-ray tell if she has problems with her kidneys?
Any response is appreciated, thanks!
