Customer Question

My daughter Alyssa had a headache and was laying down then she said she was having a hard time breathing. Then her toes and hands tensed up. When she tried to walk she could not put wight to walk. Then when we where at er she felt better except her knee caps hurt she could not walk. They said it was anxiety led to hyperthermia. Today she was walking but with help and short distances. Took her to sick call and they said she had a viral infection and her bilirubin was high.

This sounds like viral meningitis, although bilirubin would have nothing to do with this.

Elevated bilirubin can be associated with viral hepatitis, or gallstones.

Anxiety does not cause hyperthermia.

Take her somewhere else.
