Will Food Reactions Cause Fever?

My 3yo daughter was complaining of a stomach ache all day yesterday, and her voice sounded 'groggy'. I chalked it up to post nasal drip, since she has been suffering from seasonal allergies this year. She laid on the couch most of the day, but still got up to play periodically, going outside, etc. By last night she was feeling warm so I took her temp, which was at 102*. She was really complaining of stomach pains at bedtime again so we gave her a childrens motrin. After chewing and swallowing it, she was complaining about her throat being hot.

Could the initial problem have been a reaction to something, or does the fever mean that it's something viral? How about the motrin reaction? Or could that have not been a reaction at all, but just a sore throat starting?

I am so tired of trying to pinpoint all of these reactions/symptoms :(

Updating that this morning she feels better and her temp is normal.

My son used to have frequent tummy aches with low grade fevers before we got his diet sorted out. I don't know how many times I kept him home from school because of the 24 hour-no-fever rule when I was pretty sure it wasn't viral. Whether it is really that food issues make a child more susceptible to other allergy and viral problems, I don't know. I just know it is really hard to see your child feeling bad, and I'm glad your daughter is better today.

She *was* better most of the morning and early afternoon. Then she became very sleepy again. Soon her fever was creeping back up, her eyes were all red, and her fever was back to 102*. At bedtime she was complaining of her tummy hurting again, and the feeling that she needed to throw up :(

I guess I'll see how she's feeling this morning again. I really need to start some kind of a food diary to try to aid me in remembering what they are eating and what reactions they are having to see if I can pinpoint to specific foods. Of course, now I've read that the reactions can show up anywhere from immediately to 3 days later?! This is so difficult!

This is so difficult!

Oh, HUGS, MAMA! I know how hard this is!! And it is incredibly hard to find the support and resources that you need to sort your way through the probably multiple things that may be contributing to your DD's ills. I have extensive experience with just this sort of thing, as I am working with my three young children. I wish that I could help you more, but I had to offer my hugs because I have found the experience to be overwhelming. Yet, it remains the best thing that ever happened to me . . . giving birth to a super silly child! But when you deal with the frequent illness, the constant worry and search for answers to what ails your precious child . . . it just feels so lonely. I hope that you will find the resources and support that you need. You can do this! And as your child gets older, I suspect that it will get easier . . . as that has been the case for us.

Best wishes for figuring this out.

Hugs, Mama! It IS difficult. I know all too well the struggle it is to keep a young child healthy and well, especially when dealing with celiac and other food allegies/intolerances. We have had experience with fevers as reactions to both gluten and dairy. My middle child had several instances of high fevers overnight that did not result in any illness, seemingly in response to gluten exposure. My youngest has had fever with dairy exposure.

And, unfortunately, large and/or consistent exposures seem to inevitably lead to longer term illness, as it seems to be quite an assault on their immune systems.

We have used the Children's Motrin (usually dye-free and always liquid) without any problems.

    • these sound like celiac reactions  yes   ... basically avoid anything that causes the reaction   always and find your self a great natural practitioner and   rebuild  your body .. Rest vitamins digestive enzymes and very strict diet  Good Luck
    • Hey guys im from the UK and this site is really helpful for me. I've been diagnosed with Coeliac disease (uk spelling) for 5 years now and I slowly became dairy intolerant, which makes sense and I live with this now... but now alcohol has turned on me.  I don't drink often and I don't drink a lot (I used to in my uni years) but the reaction the next day (or same night) is horrific.  I wondered if anyone else had this problem.  I start with sweats and dizziness , then the stomach cramps cause chronic diarrhoea ... I then start to vomit until my body is empty .... this isn't the bad part. After my body is empty I go into a fit like state and cannot move walk talk or anything... the cold sweats start but I'm burning up. The stomach spasms are awful, I have to lie in bed flat with cold wet towels on my head and belly. I cannot speak or move for hours and feel so weak and unstable ..: this lasts all day and I can't eat or drink anything but I don't feel myself for three or four days. I avoid drinking but sometimes it's nice to go out and have some... am I alcohol intolerant??!! Does anyone else have this!?  I obviously stick to gluten free drinks and have a very strict diet! Im a severe case!  Thankyoy  steph 
    • I'm going to contact my primary Dr and see what his take is on this.  I know I can't wait another 4 weeks to go to my gastroenterologist.  Today marks day 23 of diarrhea.  Since switching back to Imodium it has gotten worse.  I think that the other 2 medications, even though I couldn't tolerate them and they didn't stop the diarrhea, at least slowed it down a little.  If my primary has no clue, then I am definitely contacting U of C.  The only thing stopping me is that they are out of network for my insurance plan so it would be more costly. 
    • Spring is cherry blossom season, which means that actual cherries are still far enough off that we'll have to leave their deliciousness ahead, and turn to their canned cousins for this recipe. Turns out, that's not a bad thing. Canned cherries make a tasty cornerstone to this super quick, super-easy no-bake cheesecake. Topped with lovely cherries, this no-bake cheesecake is a contender. Enjoy! View the full article
