My daughter is 3 1/2 and she has a multitude of allergies,that last all year round,they turn into sinus infections.The 3rd time I had taken her to her ped. dr she was checking her over and noticed she has ulcers on her tongue and said it was due to a virus,only they never went away.I took her back in and they did blood work ,she has positive ANA.The tongue ulcers,her wbc was a little high at that time, her platelet count is very high.Anion gap high,creatine blood low,basophils low,absolute neutrophils high,lymphocytes high,and eosinophils high.sed rate very high.She was also tested for herpes and that came out fine.She doesnt have arthritis.She is seeing a rhuemy specialist for children and he doesnt know what is wrong.But she definately has inflamation,the tongue ulcers,wont eat when the ulcers get bad.turns very pale ,and has positive ANA .Can anyone help please ? Her pediatric rhuematologist wich we have to drive almost 2 hrs to get there told us we have to play Sherlock Holmes now.What is up with that ? Thank you for any information you could possibly have. We want her better.We also noticed her hands get ice cold even when its warm.
