  • I'm sorry, no...I've never heard it happening for "no" reason. Could it have been an allergy to something? At 19 months are you still introducing new foods to him? I'm so sorry this happened, I can't even imagine your worry!

  • BIG HUGS Mom

    If you are at a teaching hospital get a 2nd year resident or PNP student to help you... they are great resources
    and know how to find information and they are usually looking for a 'good topic' to write their Thesis on

    You do not write enough info in your post to research it

  • That's so scary! I don't have any experience with that, but SOMETHING had to cause it. Make sure the doctors keep looking for the cause. Best of luck!
