Customer Question

Hi my daughter has autoimmune neutropenia and has been complaining of stomach pain on and off since yesterday. She vomited once this morning then seemed to be feeling better so I thought maybe something she ate didn't agree with her. But again around 7pm she started complaining of stomach pain again. Her temperature is 96.8 which is low for her but I'm not sure if I should be concerned. The hematologist only said to call if she had a fever. Should I be worried about the stomach pain and low temp?

I am Dr. Arun and will be helping you today.

This may not be worrisome but need an evaluation by her doctor, with her medical history of autoimmune neutropenia and with abdominal pain, vomiting and low temperature. These symptoms may be indicative of some infection or inflammation like appendicitis, salpingitis or intestinal infection. She would need an ultrasound for ascertaining the cause. Many infection may not raise the body temperature for a very significant duration.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
