dd not well this morning, i noticed her top lip was quite blue?, back aching and quiet, but ate well and is now at school with eye being kept on her by secretery and teacher..but this is bothering me as i thought this was to do with heart???
I know that blue lips can be a symptom of heart problems, but that's generally something long term, so if it's just something that's happened the last day or two then I don't think it would be likely to be her heart. Not sure what it is though!
It can be all sorts of things, can depend on age, I notice your DD at school so am guessing over 5. Ring NHS direct perhaps? Or better, your GP, mine do phone appts about midday for people who can't or don't want to go to surgery for this type of thing. Or can you make an appt for her after school? Think you should put your mind at rest. Whenever I have rung NHS/GP they always say, you're their mum, trust your instincts. Better to make a fuss than ignore something.
Hi and thanks..no she does seem to be developing a 'little' cough but no probs breathing etc and isnt asthmatic. She had chest infection about 3 weeks ago and doc said hes presribe AB's as it would take approx 6 weks to clear if nothing given?..could it be that she still has this?..like i say though, no 'real' cough?
Hi, yes she's 5 and normally VERY active and bouncing around which is why this si such a contrast!
Have just rang GP and secretary said only thing she can do is give me app this afternoon..so have left that for now and pre booked one for morning first thing, unless i have to pick her up from school, we'll keep it like this and if fine tonnight/in morning ill cancel app
it could be the chest infection. re the coughing and not having asthma. being able to cough and having a wheeze that you can hear i class as a good thing during asthma attacks as it means you are getting air into your lungs. my worst attacks are when im not wheezing and coughing as i cant get in enough air to wheeze although saying that i cant eat or drink either so its more than likely not that but could be worth checking out just incase.
if she asked for warm food could it be that she was just cold as nailpolish said? and that she is tired and achey from hunger and waking early?
Yes hopefully she just felt a little cold Shesells?, but she didnt 'say' she was cold and i asked if she wanted our covers pulling over her and she said no?, but i guess a 'cold' cold is different to 'being' cold if that makes sense?
