DS just turned 6 in Sept has been unwell recently. Fever's / the runs / feeling sick / sore ears (can't hear properly) / waking in the night etc.

When his baby teeth came through he REALLY suffered. Projectile vomiting & diorrhea (sp?), v high fevers, awful colds. Anyway, this new bout of feeling under the weather has lasted a couple of weeks now and we have noticed that his back molars are coming through.

Is it possible that he is teething again? Have looked up 6yr old teething on the internet and it says that the molars coming through should only cause mild discomfort.

Has anyone experienced teething to this extent in 6 yr old ? It could of course just be seasonal colds etc.

Any comments gratefully recevied.

My friends 6yr old DD (May Bday) has had the same symptoms with fevers and feeling sick and also vomiting but headache rather than sore ears. Also off her food. This has been ongoing for a couple of weeks if not a bit more.

My friend also has suspected that it could be teething and her DD had bad teething with baby teeth.

She is the last in her class to have adult teeth coming in and has just got her first wobbly tooth this week so she is not on to molars yet. Those teeth have maybe been trying to come through for a while as most of the class have had a few teeth out by now.

I think it is likely that she is suffering with teething but also there have been the usual colds mixed in.

Poor you and poor DS. Hope he feels better soon.
