My 6 year old daughters symptoms started 2 months ago. I started to notice her getting very cranky at night, so just for the heck of it one night I took her temp even though she didn't feel that warm. It was very low grade. I wasn't worried at first until it started happening every night and only at night. Then she started complaining of a sore throat so I took her to her pedi. She had a round of normal bloodwork and throat culture, that all came out fine. About a month later, still with on going nightly fevers, she started developing a rash all over. I called the pedi who recommended benydryl. We both thought she was just having a mild allergic reaction to something. But then the rash started coming almost like clockwork with the fevers. She also started complaining of upper abdomen pain . I took her back to the pedi who ran another round of bloodwork, a little more extensive this time. She tested neg for Lyme, Mono, and EBV. Her white count came back slightly elevated at 17,000. Most concerning was her C reactive Protein rate of 66.8. A few other minor elevations with monocytes and LDH. However her sed rate and Rheumatoid factors all came out normal. Her fevers are only "low grade" (99.5-100.7) but to me, when my daughter is cranky and lethargic during them and absolutely fine when it goes down, they are fevers.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
