On Christmas Day my son had a very high fever and swelling behind his right ear. By the end of the day he couldn't move his head. We ended up at the emergency room Christmas night. My thought, of course, was Meningitis. They tested my son for strep. He tested positive for strep. He also has tosilitis. My doctor tells me that these infections can cause the lymph nodes to swell. Has anyone experienced this? I'm so worried that there's something more going on. He's been on antibiotics for since Christmas Day, as well as Motrin. As long as he's on the Motrin he seems much better. As soon as it wears off, it's like he can't move his head again...... any advice? Thanks.
