I have to say I went through a similar problem with myself. I’m 15 and have been suffering from headaches for over a year now. Every time I go to the doctor about them they want to run some sort of test. MRI. Blood test. Diabetes test. Nothing was ever showing up and I was beginning to give up. I had mentioned to my mother that it was hard for me to see the board in History class in order to copy notes. We went for and eye exam and it showed I needed glasses so now I have had them for a month and haven’t had a headache yet.

So after spending all that money and time away from school cause I couldn’t move because of a headache, I finally have a new doctor.

I hope that Andrew recovers from the traumatic experience. I know how he feels though, when I was in kindergarten I pretty much went through the same thing for about a month in class. Headaches, and just overwhelming inability to see anything. Both my parents wear glasses, though so that was the first thing they thought of.

I’m so sorry they put you through the wringer :(

My 2nd son had to go through a whole series of test when he was 1, including head ultra sound, MRI, blood test, b/c his motor skills & play skills are slower than average. He even went through eyes surgery to tighten his eyes’muscles. All the tests came back normal. They can’t figure out why he’s not doing what he’s suppose to be doing at a specific time frame, so they put him in therapy which is helping slowly but surely. I know deep inside that he’s fine, he’s just taking his time. But i know when they were sending me and hubby all over w/referrals for the test, etc, i felt the same way you did…you just go to autopilot mode…until after the fact when you get a chance to kinda snap out of it.

Hopefully it is just glasses that he needs, keep us up to date.

As a medical student I have to say that we get drilled from day one to go with the worst case scenario first. It sounds cruel (and dude could have explained it much much better) to put someone through tests like that, but you can’t miss those things. If a kid comes in with chronic headaches, and vertigo it’s a brain tumor until proven otherwise. Same goes for chest pain, headache w/ neck pain, and tummy aches (heart attack, meningitis, appendicitis until proven otherwise even though it usually is nothing). It’s not about getting sued we just don’t want to miss something that could kill you. He did the right thing as far as diagnosis goes. He just needs to work on not freaking out the moms.
Anywho, i’m off to figure out what the heck to do with this coconut I just bought. Hopefully I won’t have as hard a time opening it as you did Jaden (funniest post of all time!).

If you reread the the post you will notice a BIG trend….no one in a big damn hurry to get him scheduled. He could have had an eye-exam, gotten his glasses, gone to Disneyworld and only spun around on the Tea Cup ride and probably still not have had an MRI appointment available when he arrived home. Schedule both in sequence immediately doing the least invasive first followed by the scheduled MRI if deemed necessary. Golly!

But if the pediatrician had said..well lets check his eyes, and then they were clear….and then he said…oh well..lets do an MRI for a tumour, would he not be accused of wasting time on less sinister causes? And would it not in this case seem more important, no matter what the cost, to rule out such a possibility, so that in case a tumour was present treatment could be initiated as soon as possible? sometimes a procedure may be more invasive or more traumatic for a patient, but that often may be the cost of getting the most important answer as soon as possible. Hindsight is a wonderful thing. Foresight is much less pleasant.

I’m going to guess it’s going to take a while longer for you to be okay. Hopefully, firing your pediatrician will make you feel better. Smacking your pediatrician would almost certainly make you feel better, but there’s that niggling issue of an assault charge and having to arrange for and pay a sitter until you make bail.
