dd (4) woke up this morning with a 39C fever. last week she had a fever and felt nauseous. two weeks ago she had the same for a few days. about a month ago she was vomiting. i am getting quite fed up of it. she loses her appetite for nearly a week every time she feels nauseous or is sick and then she seems to get it all over again. i'm wondering if these are just bugs she picks up at nursery or if it could be anything else.
i managed to get the fever down for now and she's eating ok, which is a big relief. hopefully it'll be gone by tonight. if i didn't have proof of her actually having a fever i would suspect she's putting it on as she gets pampered when she's ill
i hope you ds will feel better soon.
her temperature went up in the night over 40C, so i rang nhs direct and they got me an appointment with the emergency doctor. he couldn't find an explanation for the fever at all. she had no other symptoms. i have to drop off a water sample at the docs today to rule out a kidney infection. she is developing another fever this morning, so i keeping her topped up with ibuprofen and calpol.
just a very very slightly blocked up nose. she did tell me earlier that her bottom hurt when she went for a wee and that it did this morning too when we got the sample, so it could possibly be a kidney infection.
This sort of thing happened to my dd, fever lethargic etc, she had glandular fever. Get her to look up at the ceiling and see if her glands are up, my dd had tummy ache and doc said this was due to glands in tum.
that's what we did last night. dh had to leave work for an hour or two to drive us there (he runs the nightshift).
thanks for all your advice. i'm sure she'll be back to normal soon, it's just worrying that her temperature keep going over 40C.
