Friday night he said he had a headache and woke up about 4am with a slight temperature. I gave him some calpol and a drink. Had a cuddle and went straight back to sleep.
Since then he has looked very sleepy, feels slightly warm but I wouldn't say has a temperature. He has just been laying on the sofa, looking really tired. He says he has a slight headache but that's all. He hasn't moved from the sofa watching telly.
He is eating normally though. I am just not sure what's wrong.
You can check for dehydration by pinching the skin on the child's hand. If it "boings" back, it's Ok, if it's pudgy and doesn't go back, phone the docs. It's easy for it to happen. One of mine was ill and I was expecting No 3. Doc came round, looked serious and asked if he'd been drinking, as he had raging runs. I told her loads of juice and she asked me if it was sugarefree juice. Proud mum me answered yes and he got rushed into hospital, 'cos he hadn't had sugars or salts Hope your son is OK
This sounds like the same thing ds1 has, although he insist he is fine. Very pale (more rosy-cheeked this evening), lethargic and generally not himself. The only other thing I've noticed is that his eyes have been red and a little sticky now and then.
