Hi, my name is Ayla. I'm an old member under a new name because i couldn't remember my username or password.
Anyway, on to what i'm here to ask.
Ever since my DD was 6 months old she would come down with terrible temperatures of around 38-39.5 degrees, have no appetite and want to constantly sleep for days at a time. This happened every two or so months. For a long time i would put it down to teething. But she now has all her teeth and it keeps happening. It is also happening far more frequently. Every month or so.
When i would take her in to the Drs they would check her over and declare her fine, only a temp, nothing else seeming to be wrong with her. Just keep up with fluids and panadol/nurofin. I have had to stick with the nurofin as she vomits the panadol straight up. Once we realised this she stopped vomiting during these episodes.
My DD is sick with the same thing again today after being at the Drs with this only a month ago. I have another Dr's appointment this afternoon. I will be requesting blood tests today. I was told last time that it is too traumatising to be putting her through blood tests for no reason. But as far as i'm concerned, horrible temperatures, not eating, losing weight and sleeping for days at a time every month or so is something and deffinatly not nothing.
I was hoping to hear from any mothers who have gone through the same thing or can give me some advice so that my Dr might listen to me and do something about finding out why this is happening to my daughter. I cant stand for her or myself to go through this anymore with no answers.
