my 3yr old was perfectly healthy until she was a little over a year. I had recently stopped breast feeding and she was also taking formula. After she turned 1yr old she would vomit occasionally and i mean exorcist type for about six months this went on. After taking her to the hospital and regular doctor about 20 times each they said she had asthma. So I treated her for this. That same year she had also had two eye surgeries for a lazy eye that was 20/20 vision. She is now 3yrs old and since she turned 2 we have discovered she has allergies to peanuts, cats, dogs and been possible diagnosed with autism, her vision is now 20/50 in her good eye. Her asthma has been under control only needing medicine 2x's during winter until this year when she turned 3 she now has to take it all the time. She also has to take acid reflux pills because she still vomits and leads to asthma problems or vice versa. Unfortunately since November when she started school she's been taking medicine continuously but she can only get rid of this contant cough she has for a couple days then it returns. The cough is what leads to the vomiting, breathing difficulty sometimes there is not breathing problem but the medicines don't seem to make her better as months pass she only seems to increase her intake of medications. She will be asleep and cough all night and vomit without waking up until her bed is soaked in vomit. It just seems like her list is piling up. She is in speach therapy because she had developed a slur when she was 2and a half which not has developed into stuttering since she's been in school. My daughter will be four soon. As I would just liked to keep her happy, healthy does anyone know why she is getting worse. I've been told she is high functioning autistic because she is extremely smart but does not show any other signs of asburgers. It seems every six months she develops another illness. I'm just wondering if there all related or if I'm going to have to handle a dozen different diagnosis.:(
