neurologic follow up?

Should a child who was infected with WNV have had follow up care by a specialist?

Re: neurologic follow up?

Does s/he have any residual symptoms?

If the child hasnt completely recovered, then I would say definatly yes.

If the child is well and seems normal, I would say probably not.

However, a review by a doctor may help set your mind at rest, and wether its realy needed or not, peace of mind is a worth somthing.

Re: neurologic follow up?

She's sick all the time. She complains of aches and pains a lot... mostly in her ankles, legs, feet, knees, but sometimes in her wrist too. For several months after she had the virus she had many unusual symptoms. Some of them have gone away. One of them is her pupils were unequal for over 6 months. She saw a pediactric eye specialist and her pupils eventually went back to normal, but now she is complaining of her eyes not working and she squints a lot while reading. She has an appt. with a eye doctor soon for another vision exam. I could go on and on about the changes that occured in her, but it would take too long. I guess I will schedule her an appt. if I can find a pediactric neurologist nearby.
