    DS is a typical 4 yo boy. He is normally running, playing, laughing, etc.

    He has been having HORRIBLE headaches. They even wake him up at night. He just holds his head and screams and cries. I am so scared for him.

    He has an appointment to see a pediatric neurologist, but they can not get him in for 6 weeks. I am going to call his regular doc today as soon as they open, though. Last night, he would "space out." He would stare at the wall and you couldn't even talk to him. I noticed this about 3 or 4 different times. My husband (his dad) noticed, too. His Wednesday night teacher at church made a comment about it, too. Then you can talk to him, but he just doesn't seem to comprehend what you are saying. It is very weird behavior for him!

    Please say a prayer for Sammy (and for me!). I don't want to see him hurting!!

    Thanks!

    Wow Kristy - headaches like that in a 4 yr old, and they won't see him any sooner?

    I will be praying, most definitely, poor little guy - but I also think I'd be on the phone with the DR's office like a dog with a bone. Don't give in to their scheduling - keep at them until they will get him in QUICKLY!

    If nothing else, take him into Emergency - then they have to see him!

    Definitely to the ER! Get in touch with him pediatrician and they can probably make the call to the neurologist office to get him in sooner.

    I'd go to the ER and then I'd find a new Dr.

    Praying for you both!
     
  8. Kristy--Wow...after reading your first sentence my first thought was get him to a neurologist RIGHT AWAY!!! When I read the next part about 6 weeks I thought "WHAT??!!" At that point I would take him to his ped. and not wait for another episode. They should make the call so he can be seen immediately! You do not want to wait!!! I will be praying for him and your family. Please don't hesitate.

    My pediatrician got us in with a six week wait. When I called, it was July before he could be seen!!

    OK, the ped just called me back. They are going to call the neurologist again and tell them about the new symptoms. She is going to get him in SOMEWHERE sooner.

    Keep praying, please!

    That is crazy they expect you to wait 6 weeks! If something doesn't change I'd definitely take him to the ER. That doesn't sound right in a 4yo! I'll be praying you get some answers soon and that he'll be ok! Keep us posted!!

  17. Oh, Kristy... I feel your frustration with the doctors... My DS has M.D. and it can be very frustrating! But it is true about the squeaky wheel getting oiled. You just have to keep after them. The ER suggestion is also a very good one. If nothing else it might help ease both you and your son to get some kind of peace of mind and maybe a few answers. Also if he is having issues at the time of the visit (at the er) they can document and maybe see something in a scan as appose to him feeling just fine when you do get in to see the Neurologist. I will be praying for peace, healing and a quicker appointment. Please let us know how things go....

    One of my DD's childhood friends used to have epileptic "seizures" where she would space out. It was always best to "sit her down" if she was in motion because she would keep walking. It made me nuts as her brownie/girl scout leader with her. I asked one of her parents to always be with her or another mother just to monitor her...but not obviously. She had headaches too. This could be what it is or something else. Be that squeaky wheel until your dr is tired of hearing from you!

    Oh my -- be the squeaky wheel -- keep calling the doctor or get a new one to help you out. This doesn't sound like something I'd wait 6 weeks for. Best wishes -- my prayers are with you for a speedy diagnosis and treatment. Poor little guy.
