Hello, welcome to the site! My name isXXXXX and I will try to assist you with your medical question, and any medical information you seek
I'm sorry to hear about this
Has she had any recent tests?
no, when she was three we did a lot of things
Does she have any fevers or chills?
Does she still have diarrhea?
she did Sunday, not today
How long ago did this start?
this time just Sunday, but it seems to be a repeat of what happened when she was three
we were never able to find out what was wrong then, and it just seemed to quit
Any night sweats?
she said she was sweating Sunday, I didn't notice this am. She is a hot sleeper.
There is a strong possibility that she has a recurrent viral infection, and that may be the cause of her symptoms
I would advise she have some blood tests, a complete blood count, ESR and CRP
Ok, could this be contagious? i have two other children and my youngest has a heart defect.
It is unlikely it is contagious, usually, if she is sneezing or coughing it could be contagious
Ok, thank you
You're quite welcome

will they be able to treat this and get rid of it or will it just keep recurring?
I think they will able to treat this, once they can isolate the cause, another test I recommend are pan -cultures of her fluids
ok, anything we can do to help her while this is happening?
just treat the symptoms?
Treat the symptoms and try to limit her eating outside the house as much as possible
ok, that would be all I have for now. Thank you
