After a rare Covid side effect, an 8-year-old boy was put into an induced coma.

A BRAVE little boy was put into an induced coma after experiencing a rare COVID-19 side effect.

Cameron Brown, eight, was rushed to the hospital three weeks after contracting the virus, after noticing a large lump on his neck and rashes all over his body. He had tested positive for COVID-19 but had no symptoms.

Later, while watching television, he experienced blurred vision.

Cameron was diagnosed with Paediatric Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome (PIMS), a delayed reaction to the body’s attempt to overcome coronavirus, by doctors at Glasgow’s Queen Elizabeth University Hospital.

According to the Daily Record, he was put into a coma after his heart began to fail.

But the little fighter made it through and was released on Saturday, more than a week after being admitted to Aandamp;E.

Lorraine, 45, had no knowledge of PIMS prior to the diagnosis and now wants to warn other parents.

“I hadn’t heard of it before, but they said that after Covid, antibodies can become overwhelmed and swell up,” she explained.

“He was undergoing various tests all night.”

They tried to regulate his heart with haemoglobin, but it didn’t respond.

“At that point, around 9 a.m., they decided to place him in an induced coma.”

“I had just focused on him getting better, but that was my breaking point when they said that.”

“You’re aware that his heart is failing, and that contrast can be quite dangerous.”

Lorraine, from Stonehaven, Aberdeenshire, remembers pleading with Cameron to “come back.”

“I had a talk with him before it and told him, ‘You can’t go to sleep, you have to come back,'” she said.

“However, he was unfazed.”

He’s a determined little boy with a strong will.”

Before waking up, the little boy was kept in the intensive care unit for three days.

He was able to go back to school on Monday after recovering in the hospital.

“He’s had a bit of brain fog and has been complaining about leg cramps,” Lorraine, who has two older sons, added.

“He’s been doing extracurricular activities this week.”

It’s unusual for a child to recover so quickly, in my opinion.

“The steroids have messed with his hormones, but he’s in great shape physically.”

He wasn’t scared at all.

He’s a determined little boy with a strong will.
