  • I am so sorry for your little guy, it must be agony seeing him in that kind of pain. I really have no idea what to do other than talk to his pediatrician and hopefully the doctor will have a suggestion. My prayers for you both.

  • Okay, this is the third question about this same thing. Seriously, get off the computer and take him to the ER!! We cannot help you and he needs to be seen if he is in pain.

  • GO TO THE ER, if you are that concerned. Babies DO have Spinal TAPS done. It is the only way to test for meningitis and some cancers. We are not doctors, and cannot help or diagnosis your child. Even if anyone was, they could not do anything without seeing the child.
