Recurring stomach ache and headache with fever. Can indigestion cause it?

My daughter complained of stomach ache yesterday afternoon ( around 4pm) and headache about 8pm and felt cold during that moment. She developed fever at around 9 that reached to 39.1. Her lab test resulted to high WBC . SHe was given antibiotics. THis morning she was OK with no fever and no headache, but still complained of recurring stomach pain. At around 3pm today, she had fever again. What could she be suffering from? Other info: she ate chicken barbecue and grilled squid for lunch yesterday. COuld it be indigestion? or food posoning? but she did not vomit . no diarrhea either.

Your suspicion of food poisoning could be very right. However since there is fever, headache and stomach pain so she needs to be checked for many other causes. High WBC count is an indicator of infection in the body. Depending on your area of residence, testing for infections like malaria needs to be done. till the cause is found she may be treated with medication for fever and stomach pain.
Good luck.
