So worried about my little girl!

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

I have posted about her headaches and double vision (without pain) before. The Dr. did some bloodwork and a CT scan, and she was diagnosed with "migraines". I took her to the eye Dr., and found out she had become nearsighted and needed glasses within the 5 months since her last eye exam. I was really, really hoping the glasses would help her headaches.

She is still getting nearly daily headaches (not typical migraine type headaches), and she is increasingly so tired every day. She passed out today at 5:30pm. 

Her diet is excellent. She drinks pretty much only water. She has always gone to bed at 8:00pm her whole life so she gets plenty of sleep. 

I just don't know what else to do for her. Even if we get a referral to a city neurologist, it will take up to 6 months for her to get in. I just feel like she's slipping away. She went from a crazy talented athlete to this miserable, tired little girl in the span of 5-6 months. She's only 10 :(

I age with the er route, in fact when my dd's insurance changed and the new specialist didn't have an appointment available for several months the receptionist told me to take her to the er fir her pain and sure enough they got her in the next week.
Also, do you know if they have checked for any auto immune issues? The fatigue, headaches, and eye issues are all symptoms my daughter had around the time she was diagnosed with sjogrens syndrome, we didn't realize she had any symptoms of it until they asked specifically because they felt normal to her.
