My poor dd She's come back from a visit with her dad today and about half an hour after getting off the train suddenly burst into tears and the colour just drained from her face. She has a bad headache and earache, as well as a tummy ache. Apparently she was ill for 2 days over the last week, which I am hopping mad not to have been told about but that's another thread. Am giving her paracetamol and ibuprofen, but she still seems to have a temperature, but is thankfully asleep now. It's how quickly the headache came on that worries me, she literally went from being OK to crying out in pain. She's been mildly under the weather for a few weeks, and had a sore throat when she left last week. Is this the dread flu?
Thanks catamama. I had thought maybe it was a reaction to being home, but that doesn't really explain why she's been ill while she as away and tbh, the state she's in Sleeping soundly still thank goodness, so maybe her fever will have disappeared in the morning. Lilred, do you think the Dr would tell me off for takign her into the surgery? I'm not sure the other people in the waiting room would appreciate it tbh
Much better actually Woke up crying about her head but have kept up with the calpol and neurofen and it seems to be under control. SHe's meant to be back at school tomorrow but I think I'll keep her off for a day to see how she is, I think she'd probably not cope without her medicine really.
