DS was sick since Sun, 18th Nov. It started out as coughing with runny nose a couple of days he ran a slight fever. Since that Tues he's been getting up between 1-5 a.m. vomiting. Most of it was some of what he had for dinner and a lot of phlegm. Took him Mon 25th to his dr, who did a quick exam,,, like listening to his chest, checked his ears & throat and suggested that we continue to just watch in and let the cold take it's course. Since he wasn't congested there was no concern. I called back on Wed and was told the same thing.
It's pretty much the same thing for the past 2 weeks. The last couple of mornings he'll get a glass of water or apple juice and with in an hour he's in the bathroom. He's had diarrhea too. All of these symptoms I told and explained to his pediatrician and was told as long as he's getting fluids to prevent dehydration not to worry. What else can we do? It's painful for anyone to spit up let alone a almost 5yo. We give him light meals so as not to have anything heavy on his stomach. The whole house was sick at one point but he's pretty much the one that has remained sick. Does this have anything to do with the reflux from when he was 1st born? He hasn't had a reflux since he was months old.
The dr office will reopen on Mon and I'm calling again but any suggestions are appreciated. ThanksAnswer Question
