In Reply to: Childrens Recurrent Fevers posted by Wendy on August 18, 2000 at 23:03:20:
: Hi, my name is Wendy and I wanted to send you an invitation to conduct a survey on Recurring fevers. My son is currently going through this and has been seen by many doctors. I finally found a rheumatologist at a Childrens Hospital who thinks my son has Periodic Fever Syndrome, which is something so new, doctors are currently not aware of it. She gave me some very good information on a 10 year study done by a doctor at the Vanderbilt University on these fevers with 100 children involved. I am currently asking parents to get involved in this survey I am initiating myself in hopes we can find a CAUSE for these undiagnosed fevers. There is still no known cause to date. I refuse to believe that. I will be turning the results over to the doctor who originally conducted the clinical trial to help him get a better understanding. Please take part in this survey and lets help those who will be going through this too. Thanks so much....Wendy K.
My daughter who is 8 runs a low grade fever on and off continually every few days to a few weeks. Even when she has pneumonia she only runs a low grade fever. No one can pinpoint why she runs this low grade off and on. She has been diagnosed with asthma and sinus disease, but we feel like something else is going on too. After some of her low grade fevers, or after a bout of a resp. infection, she experiences severe ankle pain, where she doesnt want to even walk. Any ideas?
