Wow I feel so relieved now... My son is 6 years old and about a month ago he had HFM disease. Never thought this would be side effect.. Not once did my doctor tell me the side effects.. I definitely agree that all pediatricians and general doctors need to become more familiar with this disease and its side effects. It's very upsetting and ridiculous that we look to them for answers and their response " I DON'T KNOW" what that could be or lets run some blood work for all these diseases and see what we come up with... Very thankful for these posts.. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO RESPONDS TO THESE DISCUSSIONS..View Thread
