    Default so confused

    Hi. My son is 4 yrs old. He is normally very active, eats like a horse and a bubbly, happy kid in general. Friday before last he was a little sick, vomited two twice and had diarrhoea once. He had a temperature too. Since then he has not had anymore vomiting or diarrhea. His temperature has lingered since then. With panadol stay between 38 and 39. He sweats.excessively at night, hair stuck to his head and shirt drenched. He wakes up during he night and cries saying his tummy hurts. He is off his food, tired and miserable in general. He won't even walk at the supermarket even if I am just getting a few things he says his legs hurt. I have taken him to the Dr twice and Dr says its a virus and to let it run its course. I am just worried as my son is not a whinger, has had temps 39 before and still wants to.play trains and do puzzles. Now he lays on the couch and says he needs to rest.all day. Has anyone else experienced this? Is it just a virus or something else. It will be 2 weeks this Friday.

    I agree with pp, I think a trip to the childrens is needed. Good luck, I hope he gets better soon.

    2 weeks is a long time. I agree with pp take him to children's hospital for more thorough investigation to be on the safe side.

    I'm in the top end but a virus like this just swept across every school and child care up here. Kids were being knocked out all over the place. Like 6-7 kids away from school in DD class in a day. Some kids lasted 2 weeks. Mine where aweek off school. The tummy pain was from glands in the tummy the gp told us . Non stop fevers the whole week.

    Tonight or should I wait until tomorrow. He is sleeping but so sweaty. My hubby and I have more clothes and blankets on than him and aren't sweating. Just so confusing. Dr says not to worry but can't help it feels like something is NQR

    Me personally I would wait until tomorrow morning. If he starts shaking or seems to get worse then take him ASAP. Hope all is ok.

    Hmmm that doesn't sound right. I'd take him to get checked out by another Dr.

    Have you helped his immune system by getting some acidophilus so his gut flora goes back to normal??
    Sustegen is also helpful. Ask the pharmacist

    Thanks for the advice everyone! My little man hopefully gets to come home tomorrow from hospital. He had uti that had spread and was beginning of kidney infection. He is improving already. Dr thinks he should be a lot better tomorrow and has said hopefully he can go home.
