Ds (4) started being sick last night at 1am, he's saying he has tummy pains, he can't keep down water and is very sleepy, only passing 1 urine today so far. He's got a temp that only lowers slightly with calpol/nurofen but still 38oC plus. He's fallen asleep now so don't want to disturb him, which point does he need checking out? He's had no diaheorrea.
I know it's bad asking on an Internet forum but I always doubt myself or what to do.
He randomly started the vomiting last night, the temp only started today. He's not eaten anything different and we haven't left the house since fri so seems quite late to have been passed on if it's a bug? He's sound asleep now and hasn't been sick since 5pm but still quite hot. I'll ring nhs direct as there's no 111 in Wales. Peadiatric unit in this county is only open 10am-8pm and no transport, next place with peadiatic provision is 50/60 miles away
My 3 you has this too. She has stopped being sick now after 24h. She is super sleepy. I'm not too worried though she didn't sleep last night. I'm hoping she will be all better tomorrow. He siblings have been ill too just not quite as bad.
Hopefully NHS direct will be able to assist. Dehydration can be very serious. You mentioned he has been very sleepy. Lethargy can be a sign of dehydration. If he wakes up try and give him spoonfuls of water or maybe squash.
Don't want to start multiple thread su thought I'd post on here. Ds has weird Smelling breath (like nail varnish remover?!) He had this a couple years ago and had a finger prick test for diabetes which was fine.'m Could it just be the bug?
How was doc. Still in the same position with my ddad (posted above). She is still being sick today when she drinks water. We went to doc today who said she was OK for hydration. She's been asleep most of the day again. Poor love.
Aw bless her milly hope she's better soon! He got sent to hospital, he's come now but back in the morning if no different. He's really dehydrated but children unit only open 10-4 so got a chance to try the fluids orally if not sent to an impatient ward.
