Meningitis: Migraines do not give you high fever. He needs a lumbar puncture if not done. If this is negative then its viral meningitis....so it doesn't mean there's not diagnosis when you don't find anything. ...Read more

Unlikely to be tumor: Nothing is impossible but this would not be the first sign of a brain tumor. However, I would be concerned about possible dehydration and electroyte imbalances and adequate fluid intake. Please contact your pediatrician as intravenous fluids may be advised. ...Read more

Vomiting all night, headache, warm (fever?), little sleep and food. Cause?

Food poisoning/virus: Your symptoms are classic for both food poisoning and for a viral gastroenteritis. In either case symptoms are likely to improve within 24 hours. The greatest danger is dehydration. Don't worry about eating until you feel better but drink water; ginger tea with lemon and honey may help. You could also try the homeopathic remedy Nux vomica 30c. If not improving within a couple days see a Dr. ...Read more

I have been vomiting several times for half a day, feeling bloated and nauseated, having headache and a fever of 39degrees. What should be the case?

I have been vomiting several times for half a day, feeling bloated and nauseated, having headache and a fever of 39degrees. What should be the case?

A few things...: It's difficult to tell the source based on your symptoms. It could be infectious or it could be something surgical. If you are unable to keep down fluids and the vomiting persists you need to go to the emergency room at least for getting intravenous hydration. If the bloating continues and you stop having bowel movements, you may have obstruction, a surgical emergency. I would get seen now. ...Read more

You need check up: You need to be evaluated by your doctor, at this time it seems you have either viral infection, but depending on the examination they may find it is due to some other infection like meningitis etc.
Blood in your vomit one time only has no relationship with this episode of headache and fever, but can be related to gastritis at that time but if it recurrs than it needs to be evaluated by endoscopy. ...Read more

Virus setting in: Sounds like your have one of the many viruses that cause gastroenteritis (stomach "flu"). Right now lots of noravirus infection going around the country (better known as cruise ship flu). Chills may indicate your temperature is about to go up, so monitor this. Try very tiny amounts of clear fluid at a time, and if you are not able to keep anything down in the next 12-24 hours, seek care. ...Read more

Fever spiking to 40 & excruciating headache. Doc diagnosed mild tonsillitis. Fever up whole night, this morning started vomiting. Headache still bad..

It's time to...: Time to see the pediatrician again. Mild tonsilitis should cause mild symptoms. If a child's symptoms seem out of proportion with the diagnosis, then either the child has an unusually bad case of whatever the initial diagnosis was, or the child has an additional disorder and diagnosis that is causing the usual symptoms. In either case, her doctor can recheck and make recommendations. ...Read more

I have been vomiting the majority of my food for the past two weeks no fever headaches or anything doctor think I might have a virus is this correct?

Time to check again: Two weeks is a long time to be vomiting. It's time to see your doctor again. If you do not have fever or abdominal pain that's good, but you do need to be evaluated again.
