My almost 3 year old daughter was up all night last night being whiny, and when she started throwing up, I rushed her to the ER. (It's uncommon for her to be sick. In fact, she has had pneumonia one time in her life, and never had anything else. Not even a cold!) They told me she "probably" has a virus, gave her some benadryl and sent us home. She's been acting fine today, eating and drinking fine, but tonight, she's gotten much worse. No throwing up, but very whiny and she absolutely can NOT sleep. Every time she falls asleep, she wakes up violently because she can't sleep or breathe. I don't know what to do, or if I should take her back to the ER. She's also running a fever (I think), but I don't know for sure because I can't locate my darn thermometer. We just moved and everything is still packed away, God only knows where.Answer Question
take her back to another emergency room. something is not right. I really hope she gets better.

I'm sorry. My son was sick last week with something similar. He started with a fever of 102, a headache, vomiting, and very listless. My husband thought something wasn't right and took him to the ER. When they took his temp again it was 104. They gave him Tylenol, something to stop the nausea and vomiting, and did a lot of tests. Chest x-ray, blood tests and cultures, urine check, strep, meningitis, encephalitis, and flu. When his fever was down we took him home. Nothing came up on the tests. We are sure it is viral. His fever went up and down. We kept alternating between Tylenol and Ibuprofen every three hours, placed cold towels behind his neck, in his groin area, behind his knees, and elbows. After two days of not wanting to play or eat he felt better. It was a virus. I hope your child feels better.
