He is 13 months and has been.like this for the last 5 months or so. He will be playing then grab at his head and ears and start screaming and crying. Yes he's teething but he does have 6 teeth and never acted like this. He has had an ear infection that the Dr couldnt get rid of but finally over a month later it went away. It left him with fluid in his ear and 2.5 months later he still had some. He went to an ENT specialist and they are just watching it. I give him eat drops, teething pills, now the Dr pur him on reflux meds because when he screams a lot of the times he arches his back and straightens his legs and has a little gas and screams...this has been happening for 6 months. He wakes up several times a night with this. I have given him gas med, gripe water, and a digestive liquid from a natural food store. He poops everyday. The Dr first said he sounds like he's actively constipated ...that he can poop but he's always backed up. They said to give him a lot of juice. Did that for weeks. Now they said they don't really think.he has reflux but this is what they are trying next. I just kind of want to take him to a GI specialst. After he has gas he screams louder. I am a exhausted single mom to two kids and would love another moms input/help. I'm willing to try anything. He does have severe allergies to dairy and peanuts and has for epi pens. But he gets no dairynd I don't allow peanut anything in the house. I breastfeed him at night still and I don't eat dairy or peanuts so that it doesn't hurt him. I think there are two different things going on...something with his tummy or intestines. Then something with either his mouth, ears, or head. His daycare provider said she's never seen a baby scream like him randomly. She thinks he has migraines. Lol idk I don't think.that but I would love to know what is going on! Thank you!!

 Aww.... poor little guy! I would definately get him seen by a specialist, even if there is nothing seriously wrong, it will still give you piece of mind... Good luck!

I'd take him to a GI specialist who deals with children and allergies, I have a friend who had some similar episodes and it turned out he has EoE and has tons of allergies that are causing the sypmtoms.

Hmm..Could be migraines. My husband did that when he was a baby and was finally diagnosed with Chronic Migraines at the age of 3.

I think so too. I had him allergy tested and I eliminated everything they told me he was allergic to but he got some hives today... I don't know.
