22 month old seems ill

My 22 month old son has had quite a few issues with recurrent ear infections since he was about 3 months old. He was also on a nebulizer until March 2014. The doctor changed his medication to Flovent and Singular with Albuterol as needed and his breathing has improved tremendously. He is also on a daily allergy medication. He hasn't had an ear infection since January 2014 which is a long time for him.

However, now he is experiencing the following symptoms - sleeping a lot, coughing, hardly any appetite, night sweats, low grade fever for the last 3 days, bruising easily, more clumsy than normal, very irritable, and dark under eye circles. His pediatrician thinks that the symptoms are related to a cold or allergies, but his medication doesn't seem to be helping. He goes to bed around 7:30pm and wakes at 6:30am. His naps have increased from 2 hours to almost 3.5.

Any suggestions? I'm scared they aren't taking him seriously.
