User :   My 8 1/2 month old is very unusually fussy, well he is crying and screaming with very little change when we try to console him. I thought maybe he might have the flu or stomach virus, but no fever. I than thought about dehydration, but there is no reason for dehydration really. Today he won't sleep and really won't eat. He is now spitting up and I already gave him his acid reflux medicine, so he shouldn't be spitting up at all. What do I need to do and what is it?!
