My 15th month old woke up Sunday morning and wasn't able to sit or walk without falling over. He threw up his breakfast and we took him to the ER. They ran a CT to make sure there was no bleeding in the brain (scary) and when they couldn't find anything they told me it is most likely an inner ear infection. There are no tests they can do to make sure and there is no treatment for it in babies since it is extremely rare in children.
Besides the zero balance and throwing up twice, he is normal. Active, talking, signs, eating, sleeping. After we got home yesterday he has been walking way better. He has had tubes for two months, with 2 ear infections since.
I'm wondering if any other parents have been through this. I am going to Mexico with my husband for his brothers wedding in a couple of days and worried out of my mind. So, if anyone can tell me their experiences with this, it would make me feel a lot better!
