My 5 yr. old daughter has recurrent sinus, kidney and ear infections.
This has been going on since May 2008. It is the same everytime we go to the hospital.
white blood cell count is anywhere from 17,500 to 21,000.
urine culture always negative(no UTI)
fever 104.5
sinus infection
double ear infection
severe kidney infection
bronchitis (this last time , this is a new symptom)

Doctors solutions???
shot in each leg of antibiotics
back the next day for more shots
10 day round of antibiotics
go home and call us if she gets worse
within weeks of being off the antibiotics ALL SYMPTOMS return
We go back to the hospital (or doctors if open) for all the same tests ,same results, same treatments

In May she was diagnosed with mycoplasma infection. This was the first time all these symptoms started. 5 doctors later she was finally tested for mycoplasma.
I am wondering if there is a link to mycoplasma and all these recrrent infections that all happen at the same time.
here are some of the tests done

IGG,IGA,IGM,IGE(elevated ige)
allergy test (negative)
4 kinds of titers
countless cbc's
x-ray on sinus cavity2x's( 1 before and 1 after 3 weeks of antibiotics)
ultrasound and reflux test on kidneys

Basically if she is not on antibiotics she is very sick within weeks.No doctor can figure this out.
ANYONE out there have you seen, heard of this before?
My son is 20ms. old he also got the mycoplasma infections. He has NO PROBLEMS. Not one issue.
please help
