Child has speech delay and headaches. Regressing speech, fever, mood changes. Normal EEG

This question is about my soon to be 6 year old son! He has always had a speech delay as well as headaches . We have noticed for the last month he has been regressing in his speech and forgetting something s that he has learned in kindergarten! The last 5 days he has been complaining of headaches mainly in the morning and then a few at night! We have also noticed that he has been developing a temp where is whole body would be very hot! He is also experiencing bad mood changes as well as not hardly eating! We are not sure what to do, we took him to children s hospital to try to get answers but they said everything was fine cause he wasn t throwing up with these headaches and he could walk across the room on his tip toes! He has also had an EEG about a year and a half ago, due to him having blank stares and urinating on himself, but the EEG was normal and he has not done that since! We are very confused on what we should do! Please help us in finding answers! Thanks

With your complaints it is knowing that child is having speech delay, mood changes and seizure like events and regression of speech and skills. So better consult a Pediatric neurologist for the evaluation of this delay and regression and for the treatment of blank stares and consult a psychiatrist for the behavoiral problems.
