Hi, yesterday my 13 year old son exhibited some very sudden scary symptoms.
heres what happened...
him & his father were scratching lottery tickets...he was kneeled down beside the table.. he complained his neck felt very warm.. pushed the lottery tickets away and said he was done..was very irratable then the color absolutely drained from his face he was a grayish white color.. his lips even turned white. We immediately sat him down in a chair and my husband felt his pulse in his neck. he said if anything is seemed a little slower..my son let his head rest against his dads arm and he was very "loopy" looking for lack of a better expression..could hardly keep his eyes open and his eyes seemed to want to roll back. he never lost consciousness and stayed responsive. hubby gave him a drink of water when he seemed to come out of it while i got dressed and we immediately took him to the hospital. my son complained of chest pain.. (which most likely was muscle pain from shoveling snow the day before) he's a special needs child who doesnt necessarily understand the difference between sudden symptoms and something that hurt before.. regardless the ER docs got him an ekg which came back normal..blood pressure, heart rate and oxygen saturation was all normal. they couldnt find anything and sent us home. never ran any blood work or other tests. Son was tired after this ordeal but seems to be fine since... any suggestions or people that have had similar episodes and what did you find out.. he has had an episode before although much milder a few months ago
