What could this be

Hi Doc,

I need your advice please, about 3 weeks ago my daughter all of a sudden went from prefectly fine to vomitting and serious temp (39.5) I was giving her pando but it didnt bring her temp down at all and she was just lying around sleeping, so i ended up taking her to the hospital where the doc on call said it was a thorat infection and gave her an anti biotic, ponstan and demizin. She seemed to improve slightly but since this happened i have not been able to get rid of her cough and Last night she woke up at 2am and was complaining of a sore ear and sore neck and she felt like she had a slight temp so i gave her some carpol. But im not sure what could be the matter? Do you have any suggestions of what this could be?

Thank you

I am concerned about your daughter's complaints as she may have the symptoms of meningitis.Sometimes a throat and ear infection may cause these symptoms as well but you need to be on the safe side by having your doctor see her today.

And i forgot to mention that she has also had a slight running stomach last week, which lasted about 2 days and then went again. She didnt have a temp or anything when she had a running stomach.
