For the past month my 7 year old has been complaining of belly aches and headaches. He's had off and on diarrhea for the past 3 weeks. Wednesday he started vomiting and had even worse diarrhea. Friday I took him to the doctor when the vomiting and diarrhea continued. He tested positive for strep. While we were there we talked about the diarrhea, belly aches and headaches he's been having. He had us go to get some blood work done and over the next 48 hours we had to collect stool for testing. He recommended we switch his diet to eliminate diary things like yogurt, cheese milk, chocolate ect. He is doing better. The diarrhea is almost gone but he is still complaining of belly aches and headaches. He asked if he could skip sparring class. I don't know what is going on. Has anyone else dealt with this? If so what was the problem?
Got a call from my son's ped this morning. The results of the blood work are in. She said what they were looking for came back high. Two of the test liver and something else the levels came back high. She said it probably was due to him having strep. She said they added two more test to the list of test but they said they don't have to draw more blood. They were going to use what they already have. We won't know the results of the stool samples yet. What do you make of these results? Dh thinks they may feel something is up but don't want to say until they do some more tests. Possible?
