Don't know if it's a pulled muscle or wind or what but Emily has been in agony for a half hour tried rolling her, winding any suggestions, it seems to hurt near her heart which is kinda stopping me work her muscles too much

DD1 just got over what I'm pretty sure was pertussis- but at age 16, it's a much less serious illness than it is in 4yos.

That whole time she was sick was like a blur, since I got so little sleep (I was getting up with her at night when she coughed- even if I couldn't *do* anything for her, she needed to know she wasn't alone.)

I kept the humidifier going in the room she slept (which was the living room for a while, so she could sleep upright) with hydrogen peroxide in the water (breathe in the H2O2 to help kill germs in the lungs) plus essential oils i nteh water too- lavendar, tea tree, and eucalyptus. She also used those oils in a "steam facial"- a  bowl of hot water and then put a towel over her head and the bowl. Those "steam facials" loosened up chest mucus, so they alwaysresulted in another coughing fit, where she'd bring up a lot of gunk and then breathe clearer for a while afterwards.

I didn't want to give proberry to a sick 16yo (dr d says not to use during illness for 15-35yos) but I did give her lots of rosehip tea (for the vitamin C ) with larch powder added. I also had her swallowing raw garlic to kill bacteria, but stopped doing that after a few days because she was vomiting a lot with the coughing, and raw garlic is hard on the stomach. I kept taking it myself, though, and managed not to catch what she had. I've also taken raw garlic for sore throats (suspected but not confirmed strep throat) numerous times, with great success. I'm also not sure how to get raw garlic into a child too young to swallow pills, or who doesnt' absolutely love spicy foods.  The garlic probably isn't practical for Emily, but would be a good choice for you.

I'm not sure what to do about he current pain around her chest. If it's from sore muscles, an epsom salts bath with lavendar oil should be soothing. If it's from trying to cough up stuff that's too thick to cough up, then a steam thingie to loosen up mucus might help (or it might temporarily hurt more, if it induces coughing while her chest muscles are still so tight.) You might do better with the bath first and having her breathe in steam later.

If she's truly in pain, and unwilling to cough up gunk as a result, you may want to give her a dose of OTC pain reliver such as tylenol or motrin. I wouldn't keep her on it  full time, but if it breaks the pain cycle and lets her clear out her lungs, it may be beneficial.

Went to doctor, he was happy to see her within a few minutes, nice guy he thinks it is a virus, but also a inner ear infection so prescribed amoxicillan. As he saw us so quickly without an appointment i didn't have the heart to refuse the prescription. but she is not taking antibiotics.

he checked her heart and it's fine, that was my only concern

so Emily is going to have a long soak in the bath with something in it tree tree oil, lavender and a bit of hydrogen peroxide thrown in for good measure - how does that sound. a full body steam.

she ate a tiny bit today which is god.  she has also started singing agin something she does all the time normally. today it's chitty bang bang!

perhaps i should start collecting all these meds they give her and give them to a charity or sell them lol and use the money to buy gluten free bread

I shudder to think of the "inert ingredients" in a pediatric antibiotic- HFCS and/or sorbitol, artificial colors, etc. Like kids need that junk when they're already sick??  I still don't understand why MDs are so quick to prescribe antibiotics for ear infections- they're not always bacterial, and even then they often clear up on their own within a few days.

She probably pulled a muscle near her lungs from all the coughing, and it was near the heart area.

keep her upright as the ear will hurt less that way..

keep a good eye on the sick ear and when it gets a bulge know that the ear drum could rupture.. so drain her ear to the side of the ear involved..

did he say she has whooping??
or strep?  .. strep can travel to the heart..


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!
