    Guys my son is extreemly ill, i dont know what to do..

    we were at the hospital on tuesday where he recieved a lumbar punch to determine if he had meningitis, which came back negitive.. so went for blood tests and a mouth swab which have also come back negitive for a "known" viris.

    he is in extremem pain.. clutching his head complaining of headaces and pain in his legs..

    his symptoms are:

    neck pain (hence the idea it could be meningitis)
    fever
    headaces
    sore body to the touch,
    vomiting
    sensitive eyes


    im at my wits end and about to go clout a doctor... ( i will feel better)

    if anyone can advise i would be most appreciative..

    Les

    im sooo exhausted, now my daughter is sick aswell and i have a migrane from hell!

    got a second opinion and the doc says it could very well be a side effect of the lumbar punch... casically the draining of the fluid reduces pressure around the brain so whereas it was held into position by pressure it can now move ever so slightly and causes hellish headaces..

    the initial cause still concerns me...but he is looking alot better.. i am told to expect this to continue untill sunday/monday..

    in some cases the side effect only becomes evident after 12 days....

    still doesnt answer what the initial problem was but they have stated that they have tested for all "known" viruses, which those ones are im not sure...

    i have such tension headaces myself i cannot put my head to a pillow..

    maybe im getting it?

    Les, spoke to my wife, said it's also symptoms of swine and avian flu. I had similar illness like this a year ago and was on my back for a week. If you don't come right with doctors, do some research on the following herbal product that my wife has researched and worked with:

    the product is called MMS - its got some pple talking that its not approved by a pharmaceutical so some pple are saying that its dodgy, but i have heard from pple i work with that they've used it and they swear by it! Sometimes we do desperate things for our children and maybe this guy would too!

    They can get it from Tine van der Maas, contact her on her cellphone 081 573 5594 to place an order


    Please note that my wife is not a doctor but researches extensively in the health sector is and merely trying to give some solutions. Hope this helps...
