Mild fever, faint, slipped disc

My sister is having mild fever everyday and feels like she may faint very frequently. She suffered a slipped disc a couple of years back. Is this the reason why she is having such symptoms. She even did not take proper rest and i have a feeling that this untreated slipped disc is causing this trouble. Is there anythg to worry about. She is 27 years old.

Thanks for writing to us.
Frequent dizziness needs a systemic evaluation for the cardiac cause, anemia, electrolyte imbalance, hormonal disorders, etc. These symptoms are not likely to be due to the slipped disc your sister is having. You need to get her evaluated by her physician to find out the cause.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
