4 Year Old Child Has Seizures With Fever And Stomach And Neck Pain?
good morning HealthReplies.com, please enlighten me….
First of all it should be noted that the onset of seizures when a child has a fever, is commonly encountered as a form of febrile seizures, with an age range from 6 months to 5 years. What needs to be explored next is what causes the child's fever. From the description you wrote above, most likely the fever is caused by an infection in the digestive system. However, it is also important to know that seizures can occur in conditions other than fever, which may indicate a nerve problem, such as epilepsy, encephalitis or encephalitis, or inflammation of the lining of the brain, or meningitis. For meningitis, it is also important to note that one of the signs is pain and stiffness that occurs around the nape of the neck, accompanied by fever. Therefore, it is important to see if there is any suspicion of this regarding the complaint of neck stiffness in your child. Meningitis can occur due to infection that extends to the lining of the brain, children, or people who have a weakened immune system are susceptible to this. In addition to meningitis, neck stiffness can also be caused by other conditions such as the wrong posture for a long time (eg wrong sleeping position), or injury such as a knock. We recommend that you observe your child more closely until the child is declared fully recovered by the doctor. Here we attach an article about stiff neck. Hope it is useful
