What causes headache,dizziness,chest and stomach pain in my son?

My son complained friday about his asthma bothering him. it is rare so I kept him home to prevent an attack at school. After sending him in today, he complained at school first of his asthma bothering him. I brought him his inhaler, then I was calledi within an hour to come get him. He is now complaining of headache, dizziness, chest and stomache pain. He vomitted once and has a temp ranging from 101-102. He also went to the doctor about a week and a half ago with symptoms similar to appendicitis... is this a flu or something more?

Hi,

Fever, headache, dizziness, and body pain- all can be part of a viral fever/viral prodrome. Asthma attack usually will be associated with some cough or breathing difficulty.

If he is otherwise fine and taking feeds, just give him paracetamol 3 times daily for 3 days and let him take rest at home. Ondansetron can be given 2 times a day for vomiting. Give feeds in small aliquots frequently. Most probably he will get fine in 2-3 days. If symptoms are not improving by then kindly take him to doctor for further evaluation.

MDI can be used if he is has cough, wheeze, breathing difficulty.

Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
