I'm hoping someone can help. Doctors are so bad they keep telling me nothing is wrong. Well today I'm going to push for answers!!!!
Ds has silent reflux and colic which for the most part is under control. He has always woken in the night just to fart but despite ds crying passing wind I was told that it was normal.
However yesterday ds kept crying out in his sleep whilst napping durring the day. It took over an hour to get him down to sleep at bedtime as he was hysterical. Then he woke at 2am and was screaming the whole time until 4am when he gave up and went to sleep (only took 2ozin that time n normally 6oz) Then again he woke at 5am and again was hysterical until 6am. I gave him another bottle and again he only took 2oz. I also gave him some calpol at 6 as he sounds in pain and despite searching for his bottle wont take it. He then woke at 7am abit grumpy (normally gets up at 7) andby 7.30 he was hyterical AGAIN!!! this lasted until 8am. I changed his nappy (he did avery large poo so not constipation) and he was just grizzily. I fed him at 9am and he only took 1oz. He keeps searching but once it is in his mouth he isn't sucking it out. He is obviously exhausted today after being awake so much in the night so is still having out bursts now between sleeping and he is still starving.
Im sat in the doctors now waiting but I know they wont help
Has anyone else experianced this im going out of my mind with worry
We tried gripewater but the taste of that makes him hysterical. He also showed no improvement. We now use dentonox in his feeds but again it's not really proving effective.
Felix555 : the doc told me a while back he would have diarreha if was cmpi. Or blood in it. However he does not. I thought it might be cmpi when he was diagnosed with silent reflux so asked and that was the responce from the doc (dh is lactose intolerant but apprently can't effect lo)
The doc wants us to see if he improves over next few days (he was fine and all smiley whilst we were in there, didnt help)
The boots own brand gripe water is Apple flavoured so worth a try?
The doctors are so rubbish with this. I had exactly the same issues. If you read the NICE guidelines on diagnosing allergies or intolerance it states that if there's a family history of intolerable then it's worth trying to eliminate what could be causing it .. ie. By lactose / dairy free milk.
Like I say I struggled for months to get it diagnosed. Read up on the guidelines and keep pushing for a trial of lactose and dairy free milk. I'm nor saying it's what your lo has but it's worth ruling it out.
My lo never had diarrhoea or blood in stools, his symptoms were similar to your lo's (wind issues and obvious tummy discomfort) it's only when I started weaning it became obvious as he would break out in a rash when he had things like yogurt.
