My normal, healthy, friendly, intelligent 4 1/2 yr old son has been having excessive behavioral issues this week.
I started noticing an issue with him last month. He started to complain about "having a drip" in his underwear. I would check the problem daily and no wetness would be present. This would usually occur after using the bathroom.We had several bad days of this, which included much frustraion. I took him to our Family Dr to rule out any kind of infection. His obsession with "the drip" is lesser, but still comes up daily.
Starting this Mon after School, he is talking excessively about "being stinky" and getting everything he comes in contact with or is near "stinky". He holds his arms out and figits with his hands and fingers almost constantly. "I think I got the toy stinky", "I think I got that stinky" I think I got this stinky"... When he speaks to me, it's very fast, he says Umm alot and I cannot get him to stop talking until he has finished his thought compleatly. He goes to PreK in the mornings and I spoke with his teacher about it. She noticed the same issues with him and it had gotten more extreme by Wed. I took him to the Dr and she asked him many questions to rule out any brain injury. We go back next week.
ALL day today (Thurs), he won't swallow his saliva like normal. He lets it pool in his mouth until it is either falling out or I tell him to swallow or he'll finally swallow but has to tell me about it everytime. He speaks mumbly since he is stressing with his bottom lip. The "stinky" issue continues, allong with the now "slime" (saliva) issue.
~What is happening to him that is causing this excessive talking about stinky, slimey, wet, drippy things, playing with his hands, figiting and excess saliva?? Help!!
