    General Disinterest
    An_261931 posted:
    My almost 5-year old son just went through a pretty bad bought of strep throat/scarletina. Before the episode, he was an outgoing, fun loving child who talked all the time and had a general interest in everything and everyone! You couldn't keep up with his enthusiasm about everything from his day at school to the shape of the moon. It has been two weeks and physically he seems to be better; however, he now seems to have no energy and a general disinterest in just about everything. He doesn't say anything is wrong but if you ask him he may say something hurts (his throat or his ears). We took him back to the Dr. who could only find a wax buildup in one ear; otherwise the throat and other ear were clear. Any idea what could be going on?
