Ever a fever when symptoms pop up?

Postby lovefallinmaine » Tue Apr 17, 2012 8:10 pm

It's been a while since we've posted here, but lately our daughter, who is now 9.5, is having the same kind of symptoms that led to the discovery of her chiari three and a half years ago. She wakes up feeling a nauseous, is dizzy throughout the morning, tires easily, and seems totally fine by the afternoon. Some days she has a fever, though, which leads us to believe that maybe this is some kind of virus rather than chiari symptoms. She was going through a growth spurt back when she was 6, and seems to be starting one again. So, any thoughts? Her chiari was 8mm, I believe. We consulted at Boston Children's, and had a follow-up/MRI consult a year after the diagnosis. Now we are just keeping an eye out for symptoms and seeing our local pediatrician.
Thanks in advance for your input!
