My daughter has periodically over the last year or so gotten random fevers that don't seem to be associated with anything in particular and then they just go away in a couple of days. Weekend before last she had one of 103 that last 72 hours, then went away, then came back 4 days later. The doctor continues to tell me that kids get fevers and that fevers aren't dangerous. I get that concept, but I don't understand how this is a constant part of our lives. We were seen most recently on Sunday morning (today is Tues) and I was told the same thing. Yesterday she didn't seem to have the fever in the afternoon and so I stopped the tylenol/motrin rotation. This afternoon around noon it came back full force and now she's passed out on the couch at 5:30. What could this be and what should I do?
She doesn't have any other conditions except or a chronic stomach pain issue that has yet to be diagnosed. She had the condition as a baby and we had a barium xray and I was told that she had a colon that was twice the size it should be, but that with age her body would catch up. She constantly complains of stomach pain, pretty much each time she eats. The doctors know this too and I've requested another barium xray to see how her body has caught up over the last 4 yrs, but they are not willing to do that right now. We are scheduled to see the GI specialist again next month. Could these two situations be related?
