my 3 year old can't move his neck to the left since yesterday morning. we thought it was an ear infection at first but now we are noticing it is just his neck. we are hoping he just slept wrong but i figured it would be gone by now. anyone have any suggestions?

  • Get him to the ER right away it could be meningitis, It's the first signs of it.

  • I agree with the first poster; take him to the hospital. It's better to take him and have nothing wrong than to not take him and have something serious going on!!!

  • Does he have a headache? Meningitis usually has a terrible headache with it.

  • thank you. we are gonna take him to the hospital. iv been told about spinal meningitis, and that is 1 of the symptoms. hopefully he just has a cramp, its too risky to chance it though!

  • Get off the internet and take him to the ER. Let us know how he is.
