Did your daughter have ibuprofen? Both my daughter and my niece ended up in the hospital due to an allergic reaction to it (genetic predisposition). My niece took extra-strength in college for cramps and it affected her eyes, rash, and such. My daughter was given it in 8th grade when she had a cold as per doctor's prescription. It set off something called a post-viral encephalitis and she had a terrible headache and her eyes froze in place. We ran her into our eye doctor (we trusted him more than the doctor) and he rushed her to the hospital. She didn't have a rash, but fever, headache, and the eye thing. She said it sounded like a freight train was going through her head. They gave her a spinal tap right away, and that happened to lower the pressure built up in her head and she felt almost immediately better. It took a couple of months before her eyes were back to normal, though. Ibuprofen reactions can cause the issues you describe, also when she is sick with a virus.

I'll give a bit more now that I'm home and all we are doing is pretty much waiting for the results. As much as it was hard watching what happened, I will say my little girl is a tough one. They tried with the lumber puncher but couldn't get what they were after. They actually didn't penetrate the muscle from what they said and I would of hated to see her face if it was done there and then. They didn't have the right needles to start with and I think that is part of the reason why they sedated her also. She came out of that fine but I'm sure she will be a bit sore tommorow.
She is obviously back on the anti-biotics. To look at hr you would think there is nothing wrong with her apart from maybe a bit of tiredness or drowsiness from the anaesthetic. The lumber puncture is more of a precaution to the meningitis but with it, I'm sure that if it isn't they will get to the source of the problem.
If it is meningitis, she will be in hospital for up to another week and a half. If it isn't and I hope it isn't, she could be home as early as tommorow night. So its just a wait for the results and a go from there sort of thing. The doctors and nurses have been awesome and I seriously believe today was one of the hardest things I have had to watch. But with that, I can't believe how brave she was. The thought of that happening to me makes me cringe...
I am so proud of her...

I am not a doctor, please advise yourself of that, but I am a transmitter/receiver of medical information from none other than Edgar Cayce who has heeded your call through me with a diagnosis as follows:
EDGAR CAYCE July 23, 2012 9PM EDST USA
"The meningitis diagnosis is incorrect. It is blood poisoning derived from a sharp pencil she used to dilate her navel because it itched. The child needs antibiotics of the kind they use for steroid users because she has them in her system. Please evacuate her arm with the rash or the arm closest to the rash. The rash is a sign she has irritated the nerve endings in the arm and she needs constant attention until the swelling goes down. Feed her antibiotics every four hours and let her sleep as long as she wants to. There is no cure for blood poisoning, only rest will heal the condition.
This is from Edgar Cayce which I transmitted through my keyboard. Thank you. Aronolac
