Does anyone know the side effects of sids?

My son passed away from sids or so they think the doctor couldn't tell me exactly what he passed away from until i get his autopsy results which they told me it could take 3 or 6 months toget them back? The day my son passed, i woke up and he was bleeding from his nose and wasnt breathing by time we got to the hospital they told me he wasnt coming back. But the doctor couldnt tell right there and then what he passed away from. The homicide detectives keep on asking me all this questions but even them didnt know what had happen. But just it was sids..

SIDS doesn't have any known causes or symptoms, I'm very sorry for your loss. I hope you find peace with the answer. Again sorry for your loss.

There are no side effects of SIDS it's diagnosed when they die from it (there is no other cause of death). Sorry for your loss :(

SIDS is actually a diagnosis they come up with following an autopsy once they rule out other potential causes. Basically SIDS is diagnosed if they can't find a cause. Please understand (at least where we live - I'm sure it's similar everywhere), kids under 1 who pass are automatically investigated by the coroner unless it was expected. Usually even older are too. Again Fatima, I'm so sorry for your loss. I will pray for you and your family.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I've never been through it but have a friend who has. She did not see any blood just that her daughter had stopped breathing. I hope you get some answers soon and find some peace in those answers. Again I am so very sorry for your loss.
