I took my son into the doctor on Monday, cuz he had a runny nose, fever, and acted fussier than normal. he has tubes in his ears, so i thought if he wasn't sick, maybe one's coming out or something. anyway, i took him to the doc and she said there was nothing wrong with him, he was just bored and wanted to get out of the house. (yeah ok lady..)well today, he has all of the same symptoms but has had diareah 3 times. should i just give him some tylonal and watch him, or should i get a second opinion?Answer Question

I feel your pain! My 7 year old has autism so he isn't very good at explaining how he feels. He will say he doesn't hurt when he does, etc. It's been over a month and my son is super congested and has been throwing up (not daily) but at least twice a week. He was on an antibiotic and the day after it stopped he was at it again. Honestly, I don't have much faith in doctors. I'd get a second opinion. They may tell you the same thing (just watch him, not that he's bored-that is ridiculous) or they may find what the other missed, that's happened twice with my son on a second opinion. Now my baby has a tummy bug! ugh!!
