View Full Version : Any ideas what could be wrong with DS2?
4 weeks ago I had to take DS2 up to the hospital (Easter Monday, GP was shut) as he was sweating profusely, was cold, clammy, severe vomiting and had a headache, he was hard to rouse and appeared rather ill. By the time we were seen in hospital he was much better and they put it down to a vomiting bug.
However he didn't vomit again after the headache and once he'd slept it off (14 hours sleeping) he was back to normal. I put it down to a migraine type headache as the sleep cured him and with my migraines I need to sleep them off.
This afternoon the exact same thing has happened (except we haven't gone to hospital).
I'm now unsure whether he's allergic to something on the lunch menu, both times he's had mince and tatties followed by toffee banana cake and custard, whether it's a migraine or what it is?
I just find the timing really peculiar with it only occurring exactly 4 weeks from the first episode.
Any suggestions? Is it worth a trip to the doctor?
:brainache: Poor him! Poor you! How old is he?
He'll be 6 next week, I keep thinking too young for migraine and wondering if boys have hormones in a 4 week cycle.
I'm just not sure what to do for the best IYKWIM?
It seems like quite a servere 'reaction' so I would definitely get it checked out, doesn't right to me.
I had migraines at school Kelly, they started when I was about 8. I got an inhaler for them....not sure why....easier to take than tablets? They never did get to the bottom of what triggered them. The poor wee thing! Hope you get to the bottom of it quickly.
My migraines started at 8 as well - so before I had any hormonal issues (my periods started when I would have been about 14/15 ish).
Weirdly, there were days of the week that I used to suffer more as well - Weds was one for a while.
If he's recovered tonight then I'd be inclined to start a diary to record what he's eating/activities etc and see how it goes for the nest 6-8 weeks. If he suffers like this again I would go back to the docs asap - you'll have a diary to recount the time lapsed and might feel a bit more sure of what you need to ask
DD has had what I think is a migraine and she will be 7 this week. I had them as a child and they are very common.
Keep a diary, and a checck up at the GP
My sister had migraines from a young age - I remember looking after her at school when I was about 10/11, so she would have been about 8 and I think she'd had them for a while before that.
Hope you can find the trigger for him.
No advice for you Kelly, just a big cuddle for poor wee Jimmy :higgies:
Thanks ladies, I think i'll ring the GP and make an appointment to discuss what's happening so far and see if we can get that on record. He's been very lethargic since the last episode also (falling asleep every night after school).
In a way i'm glad to hear of you all having migraines young as at least it means that there's a possibility of it being that!
I always sleep off a migraine. In those days, mum used to black out the window with a thick blanket cos I couldn't stand the light and I would always sleep the entire next day. Even now, if I don't nip one in the bud I feel totally hungover the next day :nod:
