Good afternoon, I want to ask something. NIt has been almost 2 weeks that my sister has had a fever every afternoon, but has a strange fever. For the head to the back it was high heat but for the waist down it was so cold that even the stomach was cold to the point of cramps. And also on his back there was a lump however. Last Monday, I was treated at the hospital, diagnosed with bone and muscle dislocation and just given medication. However, the fever hasn’t changed until now. What I want to ask is, is it true that the dislocation caused such a fever? Thank you in advance
Fever can be caused due to various causes. How old is your sister?
Fever cannot be determined by touching alone. Even though it feels hot, it cannot be used as a benchmark for determining fever or not. An examination using a thermometer is required.
Fever that has lasted 2 weeks, accompanied by abdominal cramps / abdominal pain, maybe it can be caused by typhus. Typhus or commonly referred to as typhoid fever is a condition that occurs quite often. Typhus is transmitted through contaminated food. Typhus can occur at any age from child to adult. Typhus can cause symptoms such as fever that lasts more than 7 days, fever especially at night, abdominal pain, stomach cramps, nausea, headaches, and can be accompanied by liquid stools. Typhus requires treatment using certain antibiotics.
Has your younger brother had a previous collision or accident? because it is usually very rare to dislocate a bone without impact or trauma.
even if it does occur bone dislocation usually does not cause fever.
Some other causes that can cause fever to persist for 2 weeks include:
respiratory tract infection
Therefore, to determine the cause of the condition that your sister is experiencing, then you should check your sister directly with a pediatrician (if your younger sibling's age is less than 14 years). thus the doctor can further examine the condition of your sister. maybe later additional tests will be done such as blood tests, or X-rays if necessary.
