Hi i will probably be best of starting from the begining to get the best help so sorry if its a long post x
My son was born at 37wks emergency section he was fine and we were home the next day. At 4 days he got jaundas not too bad. At 4 weeks old he got chicken poxs and was took in hospital and given anti-b's. At 6 weeks he got bronculitus, Doctors said it was due to the chicken pox. By 16 weeks and lots of visits to doctors and hospital, also alot of infections, he got transfered to another peds dr who told me the bronculitus could go on for the first yr of his life but if it was still as bad at 6mths to take him back as they would test him for cystic fibrosis. (he hasnt had this test as my gp wouldnt refer him as he had been back in hospital and was now under another consultant)
At 5 mths he was took in hospital again due to his chest and also stopping breathing when asleep. He was in hospital 1 week and we were told he had sleep apnia, reflux (which i was knew but my gp told me he was just a sicky baby and wouldnt treat him for it) and also asthma as he had a few breathing/coughing fits in the hospital, he was put on 2 inhalers brown and blue and i was told they would see him in clinic and a asthma nurse would also be out to see him.
Since then the inhalers did seem to be working but for the last 3 weeks he's got alot worse again and each time ive took him to my doctors hes said hes ok. The last time i took him to my doctors he told me i was a over ansious mother and i should stop worrying at a cough or runny nose which really got me mad as its not the first time he has said it and each time he has said it my son has had a chest infection or a ear infection which he seems pron too. Anyway after this visit to the doctors and him still been unwell i took him to the local walk in centre to be told he has yet another nasty chest/ear infection and tonsulitus. He's been on anti-b's about 5 times hes only 8mths old.
My doctor insists he hasnt got asthma and that no doctor would have told me that he did have so i told him i wanted to see the discharge letter which clearly says my son has asthma on it. Now my doctor is refusing to send the asthma nurses out to see him as he doesnt agree with the hospital doctors diagnosis.
The thing im worried about apart from my gp been a total pain and putting my sons life at risk is hes now started whisling, he puts his mouth into the proper whisling posision then blows and blows (this could go on for a while) then he pants after, im now feeling guilty as on tuesday he was very 'whissly' all day then wednesday he had such a bad day he was very wheezy all day (had blue inhaler about 4 times)and sleepy as he gets very tired when hes wheezy, im guessing because its taking all his energy to breath.
Is this a sign to give him his blue inhaler when he starts to whisle like on tuesday?
Thank you for taking the time to read this and also sorry for such a long post but i really need help as to what i should be doing xx
