my baby is 5 mths old, and when i carry him for only about 5 mins, his legs below the knee go mottled, blue and then red patches, then blue, almost like someone has tied ropes around them, and the circulation is being cut off!!!!!
it has happened about 4 times now. it puts him in extreme pain. lasts about 10 mins, then takes about antother 10 for him to stop screaming, and it to come back to normal.
have been to hospital, had heart xray/scan/ecg/blood pressure checks, nothing wrong with his heart. he had a LOW white blood cell count - but not abnormal. he also had protein in his urine. am doing more tests tomorrow to see if these are still the same.
the doctors are all stuck. and we are left absolutley confused. apart from this problem, he is very healthy normal little boy. He has reflux, but that is under control now with slippery elm.
PLEASE ANYONE ANY IDEAS????????
