O is normally a really happy little girl but since Saturday hasn't been right.
She didn't eat her dinner on Saturday which is unheard of and she was really clingy and grizzly on Sunday. I couldn't do anything. She hardly ate anything Sunday either. Monday, she appeared a bit better, still wasn't eating great. She screamed for over an hour on Monday night before going to sleep and was really restless all night. Yesterday, slept loads and hardly ate anything again. Repeated today. She's just really lethargic and not herself but then will be fine for half hour and it'll start again. I'm starting to get a bit worried now.
I think she is teething but that wouldn't cause all of this would it? It's the fact it's been going on for so long. She doesn't seem to settle with anbesol.

Does she have a temperature? Could be something like a uti or ear infection? If she doesnt have a temperature and is eating a bit i woukd give it a few days and see if she gets better but if she is running a fever or gets any other symptoms i would go to the gp.

No, no temperature. There's no other symptoms at all apart from the lethargy, not eating and clinginess. It's just niggling at me that something isn't quite right.
Think I may see how she goes over the weekend and take her to the GP next week should it continue. Although I know what they'll say....

Does she have any other symptoms? Losing weight over the past few weeks or months although eating more/the same? Drinking more than usual? weeing more, mainly at night? I'm not a doctor but my niece was as you describe before being diagnosed with diabetes, and looking back she had all the other symptoms. I dont want to worry you but if she has any of the things I've written you should get her checked out ASAP.

Thanks PC. She's not displaying any of those symptoms at all. I haven't had her weighed for ages but will pop her on the scales tomorrow so I can keep an eye.
