So it started with my daughter. She got a cold about 6 weeks ago, got better and then got it again. She then started complaining of painful lumps under her jaw bone area so I took her to the doctors where she said her lymph nodes were enlarged. The doc put her on a course of antibiotics and saw her again in a week. The lump didn't go down so she went in for an ultrasound. Found out that her lymph node on the left side was 2cms which is rather large for that area. So she was then referred to an ENT. The ENT we saw yesterday said that it was severe allergies because the enlarged lymph nodes had decreased in size and she had no other large lymph nodes on her body. So she was placed on Allegra and Singulair.
Ok so then in between my daughters doctor visits, my husband gets his bad eye infection. Where he was referred out to an opthmalogist. He was in severe pain from this because it was BAD! And then my son got sick and started running a fever of 101.5. So I had to take HIM to the doctors where she said it was a virus. But I had to be sure because he has asthma and it didn't want this virus to set off his breathing any.
So then yesterday I get a call from my daughter to come get her in school because she was feeling extremely weak and nauseas. So she starts to describe her symptoms and it sounds like she has a UTI. It hurt after she urinated. So I made another doc appt for her today. She also told me yesterday that she saw blood in her urine. I took her to the doc where she ran a urinalysis and lo and behold no infection! The doc thinks she might have a kidney stone. My daughter is only 13 years old. She has no other pain other then after she urinates so it might be a small stone. I have to take her in on Tuesday for a CT scan to see if it IS a stone. If no stone shows she is going to be referred out to a Urologist. After the urinalysis today, the doc said she had a significant amount of blood in her urine.
Now mind you, in all this time I have been doing great! No sickness and not Uc issues. So PLEASE keep your fingers crossed for me that NOTHING happens and all this "trauma" doesn't set me into a flare!
