Poor your ds. It makes me so angry that a gp of all people couldn't get his sn!

Is it the heat Phoenix? DS1 was sent home today as he couldnt breathe (he doesnt have asthma), GP just said 'its the heat' and told Dh to take him home. School doesnt send home lightly (though ds1 is on one ATM so I can understand the temptation) and his breathing problems are very nioticeable.

Does it improve if you keep him very coll?

sorry just went off and ate my tea

I've called nhs direct and/or out of hours doc about 6 times since ds 3.6 was born. it's never turned out to be anything serious but i always felt reassured.

docs should be used to diagnosing based on examination and parental feedback as kids can't reliably say what's wrong until they're quite old. Even a nt six or seven year old will struggle (or at least my friend's dc were like this)

I too get frustrated as my ds can speak a bit but can't say what's wrong with him despite having had plenty of practice being ill these last three months. The first hint i get of a stomach bug is when he's thrown up all over his bed(or me)

phonedout of hours got to take him up there but they cant see him till 10 and they wont come out angry
hes not quite 4 and know im going to have to explain ds to him hate going through it all .But hes defintley notright

Tricky call isn't it? nobody wants to drag a four year old out of bed at 10pm but if they are suggesting you take him in then they obviously agree with your concerns to some extent.

hope he feels better soon

hes not in bed hes asleep on couch which in itself is unsural h just does not sleep

angry at the GP for being such an arse. Your poor DS sad.

Have you called the NHS direct?
