I have a very hyper active 19month old daughter and lately all she does is sleep,she hardly plays or laugh, she' s been vomiting,and complains about her tummy being painfull whenever shes about to vomit, though she eat but she doesnt want solid foods, and her stools are soft.
ive taken him to a GP of which he thought it was flue or had to do with her throat, and yesterday took her to differenct GP to check on her coz shes not getting any better coz now her face is starting to swell up, he gave some madication to stop her to vomit and for an infaction on her stomach if there is, and he advised that in 3days if theres not improvement i should take her back so he can send her for test at the hospital.last night i must say she wasnt any better, plz advise if i take her to hosptial what test should be done on her,or maybe you have an idea what this may relate to?

i am very concerned about your daughter. She is definitely ill. She may have a kidney problem particularly a condition called acute nephritis.She must be seen by a paediatrician. If you do not have medical aid then please take her to a paediatric out-patients clinic at your nearest State hospital.
