Google paranoia

I wish I hadn't googled it now but my lo still isn't well and has this horrible cough and I started to worry about whooping cough and he has all the early stage symptoms which have lasted over a week. .. and now has been left with a nasty cough that doesn't seem to be getting any better. . And he makes a funny noise not exactly a whoop but similar when he is having a coughing fit. .. got myself all Worried now. ..bloody google!

I took my little lad to A&E when he was unwell, he was very sleepy not eating, high temp. They said it was viral, he was still unwell 2 days later after taking calpol & ibrufen so went to the docs and they rang an ambulance as soon as they seen him as he showed all the signs (apart from rash) of having meningitis.

Just keep going back if you think he is not getting any better as they don't always get it right first diagnosis. If they picked it up from my first visit all the heart ache and worry could have been saved.
