Blood tests all normal. Ultrasound of all organs normal, no stones in her kidneys, bladder or gallbladder, no fever of any kind. Only problem was a urine test that showed a urinary tract infection. On tenth day had to rush her to emergency room with very high fever, confusion, hallucinations, distortion of her jaw and face, blurred speech. I immediately though either stroke or brain aneurysm. Neurologist doesn't think so and is pursuing other options. Someone can help narrow down the cause of her illness? Thanks
