My son started having symptoms at the age of 4.  He will soon be 6.  We took him to the Dr. and he told us that they were allergies.  I am not so sure.  I need some help figuring this mystery out. Would you read them and tell me what you think?
The episodes are always the same and always before noon.
He wants water.
His stomach hurts.
He is shaking and scared and eyes might swell up with tears.
He loses his energy and cannot talk loud at all.
He then starts to vomit clear liquid.  But the weird thing is his chest makes all sorts of noises like clicking sounds.  Almost like a spasm.  Lots of clicking.  Never seen anything like it ever.  I have 4 kids and never ever seen it.
Then he will be totally tired and sleep for 5 or 6 hours.
He will wake up and his throat will hurt him bad...keeps pointing there.
Then he will eat, and eat, and eat and eat the house out.
Then he is totally fine.  Like nothing ever happened.
My Mom thinks its a seizure,..what do you think?  We see the Dr. on Monday again.
He has a language delay and we were told by OSU Clinic that if he doesnt get better by age 9 that he needs to see a nuerologist.
Please help me.....thanks!  Stacy

Has he seen a cardiologist? It seems like he might have a microvalve prolapse which causes panic attacks and clicking of the heart valves. The only thing that might not fit is the stomach pain. I hope this helps.

It is possible the Dr. is correct. Allergies can effect people in different ways. A lot of peoples problems would be solved if they had an allergy blood test done for food and spice allergies...

I had one 7 months ago and once I eliminated the food that was on the list...I feel like a new person.

Good luck

So does this not sound like a seizure to you?  How could you hear your heart click?  I guess when he throws up his throat is clicking.....spasms like clicking!  Thanks!

Hi there Stacey and Welcome to HealingWell,
I am not convinced that the problem is a seizure disorder such as epilepsy. An allergic reaction is a possibility, as is some kind of anxiety / panic disorder. Perhaps they will have more information for you than we do here as we have a forum for anxiety & panic disorders. The thing to bear in mind is that if it is an allergic reaction, it can cause spasming which can look and sound like a seizure when it isnt. The best thing to do I think is to see a different doctor and get a second opinion.
