My 4 yr old has episodes where he will get diarrhea, headache and a fever around 103. We have had 3 episodes in the last 4 months and his has been going on overall for about a year. He has a sensitive stomach in general and gets diarrhea other times but not with the high fever and headache. The episode lasts less than 24 hours and all he wants to do is go to sleep or lay on the couch and rest. The doctor asked me to start keeping a journal of what he is eating and doing in the day before or morning before and see which symptoms come first. Through this I have found that the diarrhea starts the episode and them the fever and headache come. Have any of u ladies had experience with symptoms like this that lead to a diagnosis. The doc said to continue with the journal for the rest of the year and she is thinking either an inflammatory condition or intestinal condition..
If she's asking you to keep a diary for a year but not testing anything, you need to see a different doctor! If your insurance allows you to see specialists without a referral, talk to a both a gastroenterologist and an infectious disease doctor. It kinda sounds inflammatory to me, but what's the trigger? I think an infectious disease doctor would probably be your best bet for a completely unbiased opinion with aggressive testing.
