    I'm really concerned. My best friends son at daycare banged his head into the post of the swing, he was taken to A&E they did a CT scan and he was fine apart from a fever, they kept him for 2nights then let him go home. Now 2 weeks later he has gone downhill and when i say downhill i mean deteriating. What was once a active boy is now a child in pain, sensitive to light, sensitive to noise at times loses the ability to work and he mainly leans towards the right. I am concerned the doctors wont to a mri or ct scan they are adament nothing is wrong yet he is crying at night from his head pulsating in pain and having 3 hour long sleeps during the day which is not right, he cant even play with friends or watch tv. What do we do to make the doctor take us seriously?? I am so concerned he will die at this rate and there has been numerous hospital and doctor visits the accident happened end of feb and its early may :s please give me some advice i feel very helpless Thanks
