HELP! quick!! UPDATE post 19

back story. at childrens hospital with dd, 4 months, for video EEG and OPMS swallow study. she has reflux and seizures.

ok who wants to play doctor?
the last 3 feedings, 1.5 hours after eating mackenna has woken from a soungd sleep SCREAMING and clawing at her eyes she screams inconsolable for 30 minutes to an hour then is fine??? she is not arching or spitting up and i HIGHLY doubt its the gauze making her head itch like the nurse insists:insert rolled eyes: her poor little face is all scratched up and i just cut her nails yesterday they are super short....shes getting milk i pumped sunday so its not a diet change either. very tempted to call the 'not getting the help my kid needs' line....

Is she specifically going for her eyes, or just flailing around her head and getting her eyes?

it looks like she is going for her eyes. nothing else is getting scratched. she is catching the gauze on her head but just every once in a while.

Could it be an allergic reaction to something they gave during the OPMS?

I would speak with someone else, tbh. I have no idea, but if it's obviously her eyes and nothing else, you need someone to listen to you and watch her.

Demand that the nurse call the resident on call to your room. Be firm. There are doctors in the hospital, and if you have a concern, you have a right to see one in person.
