Hi,
I am at my wits end! I have a three year daughter that has had high fevers since she was three mths old. Usually around the 105 F range. Her enamal on her teeth is ruined do to high fevers. She has recently been in the hospital after
blood was found in her urine. After many test on her kidneys we were sent home. She continues with high fevers, blood in urine, enlarged tonsills and neg strep test. But everytime I bring her to the doctors I am sent home feeling like no one cares. This poor child is always sick! I started keeping a journal to document her fevers.
I just had to vent! Thanks.

Tired mom

  • Have you been to a naturopath? Considered food sensitivities/allergies? Sometimes if the immune system is taxed b/c of many food sensitivities then not so typical symptoms arise b/c the body can't fight off everything since it is already under stress from daily exposure to food or allergies that it is dealing with or sensitive to. It doesn't have to be a full blown allergy but, exposure to several sensitivities would do the same thing to the body.

  • My daughter is four years old, and seems to be very healthy and energetic.........at around 2 years old she began feeling really sick.........She went four about 3-4 days of this and we took her to the doctor when she started running a fever................After spending three-four days @ Childrens hospital.........we were sent home with no diagnosis.............We investigated Kawasakis disease and JRA and was even told it could be leukemia............... since then she seems to be a lot better.....still with no diagnosis or idea...........Around 4 days ago she started having all the same symptoms again and here we go thru the same old blood and urine tests........One thing I wanted to let you know is that there are a lot of interns at these hospitals that think they know it all..........they used my daughter for a ( test rat ) when we first started this,,,,,,,,,,,,,but not any more.......... You have the right to demand experienced doctors in the care and evaluation of your child................ This is your child...........fight for them..................... My prayers are with you........... Gods speed
