I am at a complete loss. Allison felt some better yesterday. She even sat and talked to her friends for a couple of hours. This morning, she felt tired but not nauseated. So she went to school. At school the nausea hit so bad. She cried all day long. At one point a teacher told her to go to the office. They called me and I told her to try to ride it out. So she stayed and was miserable, sick, and cried. She has missed 2 weeks of school already. This is week 4 of being sick.
The doctor told me to pull her out of school and bring her in on Thursday. She said she could see her tomorrow, but would prefer her to rest a few days before she sees her so she can better rule out a virus.
All she has is extreme nausea and extreme fatigue. No fever, no runny nose, no sore throat, no headache, (except today because she cried so much) no vomiting nor diarrhea. Ears are all clear and look good.
We have ruled out mono, thyroid, and pancreas issues.
Also, I have spoken to her doctor and the school counselor and neither one feel it is stress or emotional. The school counselor was pretty certain it was physical and showed no sign of stress.
What now? I hate to pull her out another week, but that is what the doctor says to do.
Any advice? Any suggestions as to what to look for?
Please comment or PM me with any ideas.
