help my dauhgter has a stiff neck and shes crying with the pain when she moves her neck to the other side. ive noticed little white spots on her arms and back but only 6 altogether she had been abroad lately so was told it was due to bein tanned but i hadnt noticed them until tonight when her neck pain started, any ideas?
I certainly go to your local hospital's emergency room immediately. I cannot believe you thought to take the time to write about this situation.
This does sound serious and medical attention should have been given quite some time ago.
I would recommend seeking medical help, if you haven't already. There could be a number of things causing the pain. If you have already been to a pediatrician or other dr. then let us know what happened. It could be as minor as she just held her head wrong at night and it is stiff, or something as serious as Chiari Malformation if this is an ongoing problem.
