Toddler Vomiting while sleeping.

My 3 year old has woken up around the same time for the past four nights, crying and then vomiting. During the day she seems fine, she has only had a decrease in appetite over the last two days. She is running a slight fever thats around 99. I took her to the ER yesterday and she was put on amoxicillan because they said that she has a bladder infection. She is still vomiting. WHat should I do?

Your doctor has put her on correct medication. In addition probably she may require small dose of antiemtic. Your doctor will help you.

Hi,
welcome to healthcare magic.
How many times is she vomiting-only at night? Does she have signs of dehydration-check with your paeditrician?Is she feeling lethargic,irritated?how is her thirst? urine output?
I think,urine test might have done and culture sensitivity (report takes 1-2 days)to determine specific bacteria and antibiotic might be awaiting.
Take the full course of antibiotic prescribed otherwise recurrence can happen.
Give her plenty of fluids which helps to flush the infection.
Encourage her to urinate regularly,kids ignore the urge, rather play or just ignore and stasis of urine will help microorganism grow better.
Wish her good health.

i think i had a bladder or urinary infection: stinging,slightly cloudy smelly urine. started almost a week ago ... not too distracting, never went to Dr. was going away yesterday. Also had excruciating back pain, but in lower back, where I have chronic discomfort over past 15+yrs. In fact i called osteo/massage therapist for my usual help call which is about every 3 months or so - interestingly timed about 3-4 days pre-menstrual period, so I figured it was that. Tonight, I wake u with strong ache in back, higher than usual & on one side, like I ve been punched. Also shivering uncontrollably! it is chilly, but I couldn t type 15 min ago... I m hoping not a kidney infection & plan to go to Dr. first thing tomorrow Funny coincidences or possibly serious?

What would cause these symptoms.... pain during intercourse , fishy odor especially after intercourse, lower abdominal pressure constantly. Discharge is normal looking except there is a lot of it during intercourse. Periods are normal. Bladder infection about 6 weeks ago, which is seemingly resolved with antibiotics. Yeast infection about 10 weeks ago, resolved with suppository. No pain on urination or bowel movements. No itchiness or burning either.

I m 16, healthy weight, I exercise regularly (swim), and the only time I ve ever really been sick is a urinary tract infection. But I feel like I have a heavy weight on my chest where my heart is. I can t take deep breaths and I feel a dull throbbing pains all over (especially joints) but concentrated in the upper part of my heart. My upper back (like behind my heart) hurts and also my left side by the ribs. I feel really anxious, and it s been like this for almost three days now. I can t calm down, and even if i m smiling and happy it still hurts. I had to leave school friday because in class I had short breaths like I was struggling to breath. I can do normal activities just fine only difference is the dull throbbing pain. Is this serious? Do I need to go to a doctor? can you diagnose me?

Hi, I have Addison s disease and type 1 diabetes. I feel like I m getting a UTI. My blood sugar levels keep creeping up (in the 150s or higher, closer to 200, rather than my normal in high 90s or low 100s). Which comes first? The UTI infection, or the blood sugar going up? In other words, does the diabetes cause me to have more infections, or do the infections cause my blood sugar to go up?
