High fever, neck, and back pain
My 8 year old nephew has a high fever of 102-104. He has neck and back pain. He developed an eye infection after his fever reached 104. He has stomach cramps and nausea and diarrhea. He had a spinal and nothing out of the norm came back. Could this be a bad viral infection?
It sounds like you`re asking for a specific diagnosis, which is more than I can provide online. Only a detailed history and physical exam by a healthcare professional can provide enough information to make a specific diagnosis. Please discuss your concerns with your healthcare provider.
