This morning I had a doctor's appointment with my family doctor for my middle child, because when he has certain foods he has an emotional break down...his reaction to these foods is a complete melt down. He just cries uncontrollably, he becomes loud, he becomes frustrated...just a mess! Usually it is chocolate (we've eliminated that from our house), milk (hasn't been on that since he was younger), and food coloring like in Cheesies ( just found that out at Julie's dd Birthday party. Anyways, we don't know what to do with him when he has a reaction and we would like to know what else he is allergic to. My family doctor has heard of children with behavioural allergic reactions, but she didn't know much about it...so she has referred us to a ped's dr. Our dr. said that if this dr. didn't know what was going on that they have loads of connections to help us figure out what can be done. It just breaks my heart when I see him have a reaction to food like he does, or when he has a break down in a store we are in...and I am sure that if we knew what was going on with him he probably wouldn't have alot of the behavioural issues. So now I am just waiting for a call to find out when he can be seen by this Ped's doctor, I hope it is soon because my dh isn't able to handle our son when he is like that. My dh has hardly any patience when it comes to this issue...so we hopefully will be able to fix this soon...or at least get put on the right path!!
I was a little disappointed by our doctor visit, guess I had higher expectations...and thought we would get referred to a allergist right away or something...didn't think we would have to goto another dr. Gotta look on the bright side, we are getting help...just not as fast as we were hoping for!
