6 year old complains of feeling like electric shock is going through body every 10 minutes or so. Complaints started 2 hours ago, followed by stomach pain and recently developing fever (100.8) and chills. No previous health problems, otherwise in very robust health. Seeing some minor swelling around lumbar region of back--could be unrelated.

Thank you for your query
The symptom your daughter describes seems to be just a description of chills that accompany fever. Feever with chills can be due to malaria, urinary tract infection (specially that you mention a lumbar swelling or pneumonia (does not seem likely as you have not mentioned any cough). A psoas abscess is a pus collection in the lumbar region and that too can give rise to such symptoms. You should consult a pediatrician for your problem
Hope that helps
God bless you
