I'm looking for some suggestions as to what may be up with my little one. My daughter has always had recurrent high fevers (39C and up, or 102.2f) where she seems very lethargic and obviousy unwell, but no other obvious symptoms. It lasts anything from one to three days, better with paracetimol but returns after 3.5hrs.
She has been to the hospital when very little, docs thought she had meningitis of some description or one of the -coccles (cant remember now) and wanted to do lumbar puncture but got the bloods back in time to prevent that.
It seems to happen every couple of months at least.
She also get very sweaty most nights, even though she bathes every evening, her hair stinks from sweat every morning. A recent development is a white tongue. it does not brush off and seems to cause no discomfort, although a sore mouth has been an issue on and off in the past. Her breath does not smell offensive.
She complains of being tired all the time, and swings between acting totally hyper and tired and whiny. She is always emotional.
She hardly eats anything and is very skinny.
I have three children so I know what is normal behavior and illness for little kids, and she is worrying me.
I would appreciate any suggestions of avenues that I can research as docs are dismissive.
