sounds very scary
if it isn't reflux what other tests are they doing?
Is your DD in hospital still

How terrifying for you. When I was a teenager I babysat a baby who would go blue without warning. I was there the first time it happened (luckily her mum was there as well!) and it was terrifying. She had various tests but in the end was put on medication and was fine after that. Hope they get your dd sorted quickly.

I was only thinking about you the other day trace. Sorry to hear that things aren't any better. Did they not do the ph study in the end?

No experience of fits really (dd had a couple whilst ventilated but nothing since)but I think it is normal for them to be quite confused afterwards. Hope you get some answers very soon - you've been worried for so long

My dd has had a few episodes of going blue. She has also been diagnosed as having reflux.
She was also refered to a cardiologist as a precaution as my family have a terrible cardiac history (my sister died when she was 35) My dd may have long QT syndrome. She could drop dead at anytime which is not reassuring. Back in a few weeks time for repeat tests, I'm praying they come back normal and that she just wiggled a bit during her ecg.
