    5 1/2 year old daughter has strange symptoms!!!
    MadizMomma posted:
    My 5 1/2 year old daughter has come down with some very strange symptoms in this past week. She has asthma that we battle from time to time and is on Singulair and Symbicort for that and allergies. She started with a wet sounding cough a copuple of days ago and then today she had to go pee like 3 times in one hour. Later in the day she said she needed to go but couldn't and started to get upset with tears in her eyes saying she really wanted to go why couldn't she. I got on hold with the doctor and while I was waiting she went back in and was able to go. They told me just to keep an eye on things and see if it happens again, which so far it has not. Then tonight when she went to go to bed she said her right leg was hurting again to the point where she was almsot in tears and her cough sounded a bit worse. Could these things all be related or is this a coincidence? Please help, I am very worried and we are headed to the doctor this week regardless. Thank you!
