Teething causes symptoms to be worse?
I was wonderin if anyone has expierenced this? I know our GI told us that things like colds can cause reflux to be worse but does teething? Aaron is 7 months and has been on meds for pretty much his whole life. They have been workin great since we saw the specialist back in August. However he has been having trouble sleeping again the last few days and has been irritable (he is typically he happiest baby ever except when hes having heartburn) and spitting more. Today he actually had a very quick apnea moment following milk refluxing out his nose. He has also seemed to have tummy problems which could be a teething or reflux symptom for him since we knowmhe has them with both. We havnt had that in months. I can not decide if it is because he is out growing his dosage or because he doesnt feel well from cutting a tooth hat is making it worse or perhapse a combination of the two. Calling his ped in the AM but until then anythoughts or advise would be appreciated.
