DD2 had a cold for about 2 weeks which she has just gotten over. The snot would run down the back of her throat causing her to cough during the night. She was doing really well the last few days, then 2 nights ago she woke up crying (unusual for her) and would not go back in her bed. I suspected a nightmare and put her in bed with me and she fell asleep after tossing and turning for awhile.
Yesterday she was very cranky. I put her on the trampoline because she loves it and she jumped around for a few minutes then sat down kind of holding her head. She then wanted to get off after just a couple of minutes, once again very unusual for her. She went to bed ok last night, but woke again at 2am and refused to go back down. She started saying "Ow, Ow", so I gave her some panadol. 30 minutes later and I still couldn't settle her. Again I put her in my bed and she fell asleep without issue.
Today she is a bit cranky, but so are the rest of us! On one hand I'm tempted to take her to the doctor as I thought maybe she has sore ears. On the other hand I'm thinking it's possible she did have a nightmare the first night and quite liked sleeping in mummy and daddy's bed. She has no increase in her temp, her ears aren't red, she's not pulling them and she's eating ok. I don't want to take her to the dr if I don't have to as it's a long waiting time at the moment and we are already flat out today.
Should I just wait and see what happens today/tonight? Should I take her to get checked now? What do you think?
