Dameon has just turned 4. For the last few months we've noticed he's a little "faint hearted." The first incident, we were outside and he was playing in the sprinkler, he stepped on a dried up rose root in the ground and got a little cut on his foot. I took him inside, sat him down to clean it up, as I started wiping his foot off he started screaming, immediately passed out. His eyes started rolling and he woke back up a second or two later, and his face was white, his lips purple, and he kept acting very very tired. So of course not knowing what was going on we rushed him to the ER. They did a check, said it was probably just some sort of shock, he was fine, everything looked good. Well the next day, he was running around outside pushing one of his trucks and fell on rocks and scraped his knee, he saw blood, did the same thing. So at this point we're thinking it's a reaction to blood. Last week he got really constipated and as he was pushing (of course painful, he waits so long to go that it hurts when he actually goes), and when he got down he got really woozy. Never passed out, so now I'm thinking okay, blood and pain?? And then Monday we took him to the doctor, he needed a lead test for school, they had to draw blood from his arm, and he also got woozy, didn't pass out. Today was the latest incident, he was not listening, repeatedly, to my asking him to play in his room with his toys, being very loud and his sister was sleeping, so I went over and flipped him over to spank his butt, I don't even know if you'd call it a "spank" because I barely tap his butt. He passed right out.. it took him a second to wake up, his lips blue and he looked tired and I said are you okay?! What's the matter? He said he hurt his arm, he rolled his wrist when I flipped him over. It is perfectly fine, I checked it over and he's moving it fine, but what is going on? Would you be concerned? I've talked to two doctors in his pediatrics office and they've both told me it may be how he responds to pain, stress, seeing blood, etc. But I can't help but be worried about, first, how many times this is happening, second, that it's happening at all! He is going to school next month and I'm scared that this will become an issue. I don't want to think the worst, but of course I think an underlying medical issue, maybe a heart issue, but he's never had any problems with his heart, and all of the times he's passed out have been in pain, or seeing blood. Any input? I'm going to my regular doctor tomorrow for a check up for me and I plan on getting her input. I just don't want to overlook something serious.
