My 3 year old son got tested (skin prick) last week for food allergies and it showed he's allergic to almost every nut and eggs. Immediately after the test he became a zombie. This was before the doctor was even finished talking to me and we got out of there. Eyes rolling back in his head.. he slept for hours after that. He almost never takes a nap. The only other time he takes a nap is when he comes back from his dad's. He'll occasionally act the same way then. Pass out. Dead to the world.
Of course the doctor and nurse that day tried to brush it off like it was no biggie and said it's normal for a toddler to take an afternoon nap. But I know my son. And he doesn't nap. He's wide open from the time he wakes up until he goes to bed at night normally.
So. My question is, is fatigue, sleepiness, becoming a zombie a side effect to allergy testing and they just failed to be honest with me or do certain foods do that if you have an allergy?? Has anyone had any experience with this?
Also he was tested for environmental stuff yesterday. He tested positive for mold and dog. But other than being upset, he was a champ. Stayed awake all day. He went to sleep around 9 last night. Just like normal. No sleepiness. So it has to be the food. Eggs or Nuts. Help??
