Conditions with symptom: 'croup'
My now 12 yr old has gotten croup every winter since birth except for the last 3 winters but this morning she developed sore throat runny nose hoarse voice and a 38.5 temp so i am thinking croup again would this be correct??
I cant quite find the topic I need so please feel free to move my question to a more appropriate board. my 3 year old has had croup 4 times, he has large adenoids and are awaiting surgery to have these taken out along with tonsils and gromits put in. He has suffered chronic sleep problems since birth, tried various prescribed sedatives which made him hyper, we are now under a peadiatrition who has prescribed him melatonin of 4mg nightly which has improved his falling to sleep but he is still waking 6 times plus in sheer panic, very distressed to the point he cries so hard he's often sick. he's been diagnosed with sleep apnea although a sleep study measuring his sats came back satisfactory, is there any treatment or herbal remedies for night terrors? I (mum) have frequent nightmares still and used to sleep walk, but haven't done that for 6 years, I do frequently wake up and hallucinate, so like nightmares but know I'm awake.(I've had stillborn babies and often find myself stepping over dead babies to get to the bathroom in the night, they're obviously not there , just in my subconscious,) we have a 7 month old baby who isn't showing an symptoms of the same disorder that the 3 year old has, but we are desperate for sleep, I worry about the 3 year olds development and the effect on mine and my partners relationship. any advice????
