I'm writing because every time I have posted on here I am ALWAYS able to get good information and feedback. I'm not familiar with all of the discussion board lingo haha but I feel like I have a huge weight on my chest so I'm reaching out to you guys!
Ok, so I don't write a book....here's what's going on. I have a 2 year old son who has had 5 ear infections this year alone. He has had strep throat once, and a plethora of colds that cause him to be very congested. He also broke out in unexplainable hives earlier this year. We took him to the allergist but walked away without any new information. He is not in daycare, I've been home with him for the past year. Ok, so last week he went to the doc because his lymphnodes were swollen in his neck mainly on the right. Turns out he has a double ear infection...smh. Mind you he had just been treated for an ear infection mid July and we were told it was all cleared up. Now she also said his tonsils looked inflammed but wasn't sure if that was because of his ear infection. No runny nose, sneezing, coughing or any of that. She asked if he snores at night and I told her yes. He was referred to an ENT and a sleep study to see why he's snoring. Turns out he has sleep apnea so now we have to go back for round 2 of the sleep study tomorrow but they're going to add a mask to provide oxygen.
