i have stopped trusting doctors as theyve been wrong with thier diagnoses with my daughter countless times. it took them 3 months to figure out that kayla had acid reflux. when she had thrush i was told i wasnt burping her right causing her to be fussy. when i tell them shes hystarical, screaming constantly and never sleeping more then an hour at a time its shes just fussy and your a first time mom. eventually youll learn your daughters cues. it took them 3 months to figure out that the reason she had daily episodes of stopping breathing for up to 30 was mold, even though i had told them from day 1 about it and that my landlord said to keep the window open and wash with bleach. so bottom line, i no longer trust doctors. and i was wondering if anyone had any ideas as to whats going on with here now. well over a month ago she got a sinus and ear infection so she was put on antibiodics. everything cleared up except the green runny nose which has been there for well over a month. last several days shes been sleeping an extreme amount. shell sleep all afternoon, wake up for 2-3 hours, go back to bed, wake up once at night and have one morning nap. before this she never slept for more then 1-2 hours at a time, so thats a huge difference. also, this afternoon she was sleeping and then all of sudden she stated having this very violent gasping. it sounds sort of like a iccup but its not, it sounds as if shes violently gasping for breath. i took her to emerg where i was told that it was cold related. the doctor told me that shes gonna seem like she has a cold all winter and that shell get better for a few days and then worse. when i told him that she hasnt gotten better at all, that its been constant, his reply was that he didnt know but he was still convinced it was a cold and it would go away come spring. i told him kayla is breastfed and his reply was yet again i dunno, but its not enough to make me change my mind. as i have said, i dont trust doctors anymore so i was wondering if anyone had any ideas.
