Easy Sleepiness Accompanied By Cold Sweat In A 4 Year Old Child?
good morning, my 4 year old daughter has experienced symptoms of yawning a few times like a sleepy person, then a cold sweat comes out and then vomits a few times then falls asleep, after waking up refreshed. is it a symptom of heart disease? thank you in advance.
Hi Indri. In general, the presence of heart disease in a child can be caused by a previous congenital heart defect, an infection in the heart, or a heart rhythm disorder. Usually children have limited activity abilities, and often if excessive activity children feel tight, pale, blue lips, and children get tired quickly. Consult a doctor directly can be done to find out the condition of your child's heart health. Echocardiography, ECG, X-rays can be several options depending on the doctor's suspicion.
The condition that your child is experiencing alone can also be caused by gastroenteritis, viral infections, stomach acid disease. Consult further with your doctor. A physical exam can help. Keep a regular diet, maintain the hygiene of the food you eat, wash your hands before and after eating and after activities, and get enough rest to help. Hopefully helpful, and thank you.
