I just don't know what to do..

I've done everything to keep my baby from screaming all day long, and I'm running out of options. Doctors won't listen to me and just diagnose it as colic without even checking anything else. Nothing works. NOTHING. He is in PAIN all-day-long and no one will listen to me. I just don't know what to do anymore short of taking him to the chiropractor. Help? Advice? Please?

  • You need to find a doctor that will test him for acid reflux, demand that they do it that is what it sounds like her has, try a family doctor they are usually better about this sort of thing that snotty peds anyways.

  • Sounds like you've been to multiple doctors, then? I wouldn't hesitate to go to the chiropractor's.

  • I'd switch pediatricians if they aren't listening! My 1st pediatrician was like that, it took almost 4 years to get my old one to test my oldest for asthma! We kept taking her to the ER because they always seem to happen at 3 am,& he said since he had never witnessed it he wouldn't prescribe her one, and seemed to ignore the reports from the ER docs. The first visit to our new one they not only diagnosed her, but set up a appt with an allerist. My youngest was diagnosed as "colicky" too eventually we found out she was lactose intolerant and had reflux! You sont wanna suffer through screaming because your Dr. Isn't willing to put an effort into listening to youor to run the proper tests!
