My son is 3 yrs old and was in a&e on Monday with wheezyness and rapid breathing. He was admitted overnight 4 weeks ago. Doctors reluctant to diagnose asthma although asthma and allergies common in my family. Monday was scary as he fell asleep during nebuliser and was very tired after a sleepless night. He was rushed to resus as they said he was non responsive. But he was soon wide awake screaming as they put needle in vein. It was precautionary. He had no cold before attack. He has been discharged with salbutamol and a brown prevented. He will have a follow up in outpatients. Frustrating as they will not diagnose why this is happening. He complained of stomach ache just before he went to hospital, while he was there and when he got home. We got home yesterday evening and this morning he was up at 1.30am crying as his tummy hurt. I gave him calpol. Is this common after this sort of incident. Should I be worried. Is this a food allergy. Any advise would be appreciated. Thanks.
