Can tonsillitis cause Stomach and Intestional problems, from the drainage of the infected puss, or mucus into the stomach region? I am wondering if my laying down at nite with post nasal drip is causeing the infected mucus/puss to get into my stomach and cause my stomach to get overly gassy, and now i am having serious bouts of constipation, and sometimes even diahrrea..... I feel feverish and almost like I am near shock when these episodes occur, or could it not be associated with that at all, and possibaly be colitis/diverticulitis, or even something more serious like Chrones disease, or Cancer? My bloodwork comes back normal other than a vitamin D deficiency. I also have tingling sensations in my extremities quite often. When these episodes happen, i feel burning in my stomach associated with frequent feeling of having to use the bathroom, but then cant cause I am backed up. I also have been passing foul smelling green stools, and very loose mucus stools as well...... I just had blood work done again, and cannot go to the doc for another week because i am leaving the states to go on my honeymoon, however, I would hate a flair up there. Is there anything u would so kindly recommend, or suggest that maybe I havnt tried? I am currently on Hyoscyamine (.375MG TAB twice daily), as well as aprazolam (2MG twice daily) I was on Nexium but cant afford it right now, so have also been taking Prilosec OTC, and it hasnt helped nearly as much as the Nexium did. I want comfort again, and am sick of these symptoms plaguing me each and every day.......... Pls get back to me here, and pls also send me an email of ur sugestions to YYYY@YYYY , and thankyou for your advise in advance............ I just cant wait to feel better for good..............

My daughter is 3 years old. We are from Nepal but have been living in Australia for last one year. She has been getting high fever which gets up to 40 C every 15 to 21 days. It was more severe in winter months here, she has had lots of check ups but nothing has been diagnosed. Many times she has had tonisilitis during fever. Now she is in fever but this time her tonsils are not swollen. Fever started from Wednesday 12 January and it is still high. I took her to GP yesterday and was told to wait before medication is given. She has been on penicillian for treating tonsilitis for last every fever. This may be viral fever so we are waiting. How long viral fever can be and what should be done if fever gets very high?
