I second the other ladies , and I would take her to the ER immediately. Meningitis can cause similar symptoms and can easily be overlooked by doctors. She could end up in a coma and not wake up. My husband had meningitis as a child and it started out with him having simple cold like symptoms that kept getting worse. The doctors ignored his moms instincts that something wasn't right with him and one morning she found him totally unresponsive and limp. Thankfully he recovered fully after a 48 day stay at a hospital but it could have been really bad. Doctors do not always know what's best , but I'd never doubt a mothers instinct so follow your gut

I hope you have been to the doctors today. This is scary shit. Hopefully you took her straight to the er.

If the doctors didn't help and you're concerned go to the emergency room, or call the dr back and demand that they see her again.
