my son is 3 and a half. since july he's had numerous problems that just seemed to appear over night.
The main ones are bowel changes diarrhoea/constipation unusual coloured stools, undigested food in stools, diarrhoea and normal stool during sleep on several occasions. night sweats that wake him up they cause pillows to be wet, and weight loss. he's also got rashes around his mouth, in his nose and on his bum we are using a steroid cream which is helping with that. he has a dairy free diet.
hes had two blood tests the first one showed high b12, neutrophils, basophils and slightly elevated platelets. we had an appointment with the paediatrician and they checked celiacs, thryoid function, immunoglobulin, full blood count which all came back normal and the faecal calprotectin came back normal today. my brother has crohns disease so I believe the doctor was looking for signs of inflammation. this week my son has had more episodes of diarrhoea and today my son did a poo that was half grey and half brown, is that normal?
the paediatrician is seeing us again in 6-8 months and we have a dietician appointment at the end of march. other than that I believe we are meant to just try and forget/ignore the problems. i'm in two minds wether to do this. My son seems fine in himself but this is affecting his sleep and his eating/weight. we are using movicol daily as of today which was advised by the doctor. i've kept a diary of all problems since october and my son has had 18 episodes of diarrhoea so far. I am thankful that the results showed everything as normal but this is also quite frustrating as it feels like this is never going to end for him.
