Conditions with symptom: 'being sick'
can anyone help with a worrying problem? my 9yr old son has a problem when eating, every time he starts eating he will come over all uncomfortable, and struggle to eat anymore.will go the toilet and be sick, this happens even after drink, he is undreweight and it is getting him down. he is under the hospital and has a camera down with it only coming back that he has inflammation. he will cough till he is sick with so much saliva. please can anyone help?
Have you tried cutting gluten out of his diet? this sounds exactly like me...I had the same problems since I was a baby but was misdiagnosed as an eating disorder (they thought the nausea and inability to eat much was all in my head). Finally diagnosed coeliac at age 21 xxx
Ok my 4 year old dribbles and has sores on his chin, mouth breaths and has delayed speach and struggles even to say his own name, gags on food and takes him self off to be sick before finishing his food . About 18 ago he was waking up on the night chocking and being sick which thankfully the night time sickness has stopped . Had visits to a peadiactrics last year who said he as enlarged adenoids and that was prob causing a form of sleep apnia that was causing the nighttime troubles but didn't meet nhs criteria to have them removed and to go bk to the doctors this April if things ate no better. We have done that and seen at ENT today who said that he didn't know what to do as the nhs would not let him remove them as he still didn't meet the criteria. He starts school in September and still falls asleep during the day sometimes is dribbling etc . I don't know where to go from here and advice would be great
Hi I am going through exactly the same thing with my son, now 12 but he has been like this since he was a toddler. We have just been refered to a Gastroentirologist recently. He was on meds for reflux but that didn't seem to make it go completely.There is a condition called eosonophilic oesophogitis where certain trigger foods cause a delayed reaction in kids sometimes days after.They tend to have issues with eating, trouble swallowing, vomiting, coughing while eating, having to drink between mouthfuls are some of the issues. My son described it as it is like he has a door in his throat and sometimes it is open and the food goes down ok, and sometimes it shuts and the food gets stuck.He then has to induce vomitng to get the food out.He has also been running off to the loo like this since he was 4. He gets a ' look' on his face and stops eating and you can tell what is coming next. The Dts thought it might be a hiatus hernia but 2 bariums showed nothing untoward wrong.The only way to diagnose eosonophilic oesophogitis is with an endoscopy and biopsies which look for more than 50 white blood cells present in the osophogus which normally should not be there.These are caused by consuming food/ foods which the child is allergic to, but because the reaction is a delayed one it is harder to detect.The cells inflame the throat causing scarring and this causes the dysphagia ( trouble swallowing) This is what I am trying to get the Drs to check for woth my son as he is typically atopic ( allergic ) . My son has year round rhinitis, mouth breathes and many allergies including pets, dust, tree and grass pollens, foods and asthma since he was 1. Also in young children failure to thrive or being small for age, sleep difficulties, tummy aches and lots of ear/ throat infections are very common as well as what you mentioned. I hope you get some answers and us too ! It's been a long road !
this is normal I think cause I am about the same weight as u and my thighs are really big as well and my hips sick out
Yes! Watch the video on worms, it made me feel sick!!

6 year old was sick early hours Saturday and had yellow bubbly runny smelly poo and keeps getting sharp pains come and go its burning her every time she goes
my child is eight and has been next to someone who has had chicken pox. he has had chicken pox but has came down with a high temp and has been sick followed by being tired. this has being going on all day and ive gave him warter but he brings it back up.
my 13yr old daughter might have them i am not quite sure she has constantly been eating a lot of food, she said that she has a itch bum hole, she has very sore and burning eyes, she looks pail and very white in the face and she is constantly feeling sick.
The best thing to do is have a look at her bottom at night when it feels itchy. You can see the little pests wriggling about. We have an ongoing problem with our 4 year old.
is the itching worse at night? I noticed my 12 year old daughter was itching back there throughout the day and night. I checked her bottom one afternoon because she was in distress but found nothing. Googled her symptoms when she woke up one night with it being particularly itchy and found out that if the itching is worse at night it's probably worms. Checked bottom again before she went to sleep and saw loads of them crawling out, she had a pretty bad infestation. Took her to the doctor the next day and confirmed it as threadworms. Hope this helps.

Hi, I have a seven year old son and I am worried sick that something is wrong with him. For the past two years he makes all sorts of noises and sniffs, facial expression ticks. I have been to the doctor about tourettes syndrome but he said that he would grow out of them but the problem seems to be getting worse. He is also constantly on the go, cannot sit still and has a short attention span am I worried over nothing
Hi there. Seems like your sonsounds just like mine. Mine is 11 and has all the same symptoms of your son. I think my son has Tourette's syndrome. Kids with Tourette's can very well have ADHD too! He has had all these tics, grunts and squeeks since he was 6. I too was told he will grow out of it....he's a nervous child maybe...etc. 5 years on and it's still here. So early this year I bit the bullet took him back to the doctor and insisted on an MRI (just to rule out anything) he also had an EEG. Both results came back clear, thankfully. We are waiting on an appointment with a doc who specialises in Tourete's. We wil have a diagnosis before the summer is over! Best of luck to you, try not to worry.
Ditto! i have a seven year old son who is a carbon copy of your son. I demanded that the GP refer him and we now have had a neurologist appt next month and CAMHS are doing a full assessment and will go into the school in Sept to assess him. If i were you I would go back to your GP and request that he be referred. Bless you and your son, I know exactly what you are going through, good luck!
