My 3 yr old has congenital hypothyroidism and is taking natural thyroid at the moment. Tonight, at bed time she complained that her tummy hurt, and when I asked her to show me where, she points to her chest. I told her that is her chest and showed her where her tummy was, to this she again pointed to her breastbone. She also said she had a headache.
Iasked her if she wanted to eat- no, throw up-no, go poop-no, if she felt like someone pressing on her chest-yes.
No fever, no coughing, runny nose but pretty stinky breath, though.
Then she said she had heartburn (I am 38 wks, and have it bad- so she might have got that idea from me.)
I gave her 1/2 of a tums and she said she felt fine afterwards- but this sort of bothers me. Should a 3 yr old have heartburn, or is this something else more serious?
Other than this- she is fine, active, lively and fun.
Mama to 5 babies. UCer, too!
