My daughter is now 14. For the last couple years, she will occassionally wake up in the night shivering (like with the chills). Sometimes, she throws up, sometimes she has a fever (100.3 the last couple times). We usually give her an ibuprofen and after awhile the shivering subsides, she can fall asleep. When she wakes up, she is covered in sweat and feels fine.
This happened again last night. She had a flu shot yesterday so don't know if that was related to this episode or just like all the others and the flu shot is a coincidence.
We've been to 2 different doctors who have no idea. Blood work is all fine. We did a baseline blood work up and then had blood drawn the morning after an episode and still no information. She's had a chest xray which was clear. The last doctor wanted to do a tb test but we haven't gotten that done yet.
My husband has migraines which are quite painful and may include throwing up for him. We wondered if this could be related? But a headache is not a symptom that she experiences.
