help me brainstorm what could be wrong with him!!!
here is the scoop. My 8 year old son seems to have intermittent episodes for two months or more where he has diarrhea and/or vomiting for a day or two each week. IT IS NOT THE STOMACH FLU, even thought the doctors keep trying to pass it off as that. he is not sick at all, no fever, just stomach cramping and severe diarrhea (like consitancy of urine). this will last for at least a month, then will resolve for a few months and return again. i'm taking him into the doctor again tomorrow and will not take anything less than scheduling for an endoscopy or colonoscopy. anyone have any ideas on what the hell could be causing this?
Last week he was in the dr and diagnosed with a sinus infection. we were basically "promised" that the antibiotics will resolve the problem. within 2 hours after being seen by the dr, I had to call an ambulance because he was doubled over in pain, lethargic, weak and didnt want to move at all. the ER diagnosed him with severe dehydration and a viral stomach flu. the next day he was almost 100% better ,back to normal energy level, vomiting done, but STILL had severe diarrhea!!! now less than a week later (the diarrhea went away after friday last week) he was "sick" again!!!
He cant keep missing school, and I cant keep missing work and school over this!!!! I need suggestions to look into so that I dont feel so blind about what it could possibly be!!
