It: It sounds as though your son has had many complicated issues and concerns over the last few years. If you do not have one already, you may want to speak with a developmental pediatrician about his difficulty with school, concentration and muscle tone.

Without an exam and testing, it is hard to say what his collapsing episode was. Worst case scenerio is that he may have had a seizure causing him to collapse. You should discuss this episode with his doctor and then consider a neurological evaluation by a pediatric neurologist. With his other on-going issues, this may be a helpful consult even if he did not have a seizure. I hope this helps! Good luck! ...Read more

I have a sore throat and my legs ache. Can these be related? I had a fever earlier today. I don't have a spleen.

I have a sore throat and my legs ache. Can these be related? I had a fever earlier today. I don't have a spleen.

Viral infection: Most likely a viral infection. Not having a spleen predisposes you to infection by capsular bacteria but you need not be too concerned at this time unless you started to have green nasal discharge or a high fever (>102 F). Be sure to get immunized regularly with Prevnar (pneumococcal vaccine) and Pneumovax. Need to be treated promptly if you have symptoms of bacterial sinus infection which may follow a cold. ...Read more

I had temperature with a sore throat few days ago. I medicated with hash (marijuana) and now after work I can't feel my legs and right arm.

Call your doctor: Immediately if you still have symptoms now, or go to the urgent care if open, or ER. Your hash may have been contaminated with other products that are causing you to feel worse, and a drug screen has to be done to see what else you ingested or smoked or took that can be causing this problem. Sore throat with temperature history doesn't produce this type of neurological symptoms. ...Read more

I am very fatigued, I have body aches primarily in my legs, loss of appetite and a sore throat as well cough and runny nose. Temp 101.0

Dr. Can check throat: New throat pain can be from a strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or influenza (antibiotics usually not used), or from some other cause such as allergies or irritants. Usually, a person sees the doctor if the sore throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to check for strep throat). A couple days of throat lozenges and Tylenol (acetaminophen) can help. ...Read more
