tubes in ears/adnoids/strep throat/sleep apnea HELP!!!! ANY HELP AT ALL!
I need to piece this together. I replied to the sleep apnea post and got a surprising answer about DSs night terrors. I just trying to put another mystery piece into place. I was going to reply this to her post but thought I may get more help this way (and didnt want to highjack her post)
Something I have wondered is DS has tubes in his ears because of fluid. Since then(got them in when he was 5 and they are still in at 7) he doesnt get sick "normally" Hes had strep twice this year and it didnt present like you would think. The first time he was a little sick for a few days. A week later his saying he has a pain in his groin. I think UTI and take him to the Drs. She said its rare for boys to get them he probably pulled something. I bring up that he was sick and just wanted to double check. She decided to do a step test and it came back positive. No sore throat fever rash. She said its common as a symptom to be abdominal pain. A few months later. Same pain, same spot so we go to the ER. They want to rule everything out with an xray. I said do a strep test, positive again. He was just fine. Not sick at all. Just the other day he started having the same darn pain. Every time he says it just feels like hes REALLY HUNGRY. I have no darn idea why its never a sore throat fever rash or him just being ILL. Could it be because of the tubes? Could something in his throat be going on why he has it all the time or it just never goes away? For Heavens sake its June so like every 2 months hes had it this year. Any help or ideas?
(I just wanted to say I replied to the other post asking if night terrors and sleep apnea are linked and the OP said that with sleep apnea they are 50% more likely to have them and they were asked if she had them at all of their appointments. DS has had night terrors since he was 3)
