I have a 3 yr old son who has been feeling under weather laterly. He has been running fevers,coughing,really congested,and a running nose,during the nights for the last past couple of weeks now.I took him to see his doctor and they ran test and they couldnt find anything wrong. They did x-rays to see if it could be pneumonia and it wasn't. They checked for the flu and it wasn't that either. The doctor just gave his some cough syrup and a high dosage of ibuprofen. which i been giving to him for the last past week. Still nothing seems to change. I am very concerned about my sons health. I'm debating on just taking him to the ER at a childrens hospital to see if they can go a little more in debt with what could possibly be wrong. I just don't want it to be something harmful and I could have done something about it before it gets too out of hand. CAN'T WAIT UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE! Can someone pls tell me what the poblem could possibly be. Thanks!View Thread
