Just having fever after delivery does not mean that you have Sheehan syndrome. It is associated with heavy bleeding during delivery.Mild rise of temperature is common within 48 hours of delivery. high temperature like you had is commonly due to infection.

Two days ago my first period started after delivering my son. This was 5 weeks after delivery. I started to have severe body aches, joint pain, extreme convulsing chills, headache and 100+ fever. The fever broke during the night but everything else is still present. Is this related to the period or something on its own?
I have recently gotten tonsilitis and seem to have gotten it again. I believe it is bacterial due to my sudden fever and extremely sore throat/tonsils without cold symptoms. Both times I have come down with this I participated in felatio with the same partner, both times within 2 days of contracting tonsilitis. This Man is disease free and we always use condoms during sex (except during oral), could there be a connection....and if so, do I need to let him know?
Dear Dr. Two days back my son had fever. The casue we dont know. From morning till late evening he was fine. But arount 8 pm he developed sudden high temp of 102 degeers. The Doc said it might be due to summer heat or infection found common during summer. We always give enough water to prevent my from dehydration. Before he got fever, he was playing in water (normal tap water), he had one whole raw tomato. Today we discovered that a new teeth was comming. Really don t know what lead to the sudden fever. The Doc gave him common para syrup. For the whole night we have him para syrup at regular intervals as precribed by the Doc. My wife is working a staff nurse in Government hospital Children s ICU ward. The next day morning the temperature was normal. Suddenly the temp rose again to 102. My Wife suggest to give him Meftal-P tablet, as the doc normally advised this dosage when high fever occours. She gave him 1/2 tab of meftal-p tablet. Temp slowing reduced from 102 to 101. Suddenly I noticed his body gave a big jerk. This was not like normal severing. Suspecting the unexpected we immediatly took thim to hospital. In the hospital for 15-20 mins he looked normal and playing as normal. Suddely he got seizures. The Doc immediatly diagones for Febril seizures. We all were shocked. the doc told this normal during very high fever. My question is that by giving my son Meftal-P tab without doc s advise could have caused this seizures. Was the febril seizure due to durg infection. Please advise. Also should I go for further investigation for my son s seizure Many Thanks Gopinath M YYYY@YYYY

I was told that one of the symptoms of down syndrome is severe hair lost? I have a sister that has down sydrome and she is losing her hair, I suggest that she see a dermatologist, but I was told that it wouldn t be necessary because it s a trait of down syndrome. I never heard that. Please help.
