I think stiff neck and cold symtems are a sign of spiral meninjitis. I would insist the Doc test for this
Absulutely insist. Do not be alarmed its probably nothing but better safe then sorry. If caught early no problems
if miss XD and left untreated meninjitis can cause big problems.
Diagnosed panColitis 1990.

My eye doctor told me last week that some UC suffers can also have severe eye pain, the medication for which is a topical Prednisone. I've never experienced this 'joy' but it's something you may want to consider...

Rx: 60 MG Prednisone, 800mg Sulfasalazine, 40ml Rowasa Enema nightly
Also: Probiotic 3-4x per day, Fish Oil occasionally

If she has sore eyes and a discharge she could have pink eye or an eye infection. I have a 2 1/2 year old...I am familiar w/ pink eye as I had it twice last year. My eyes actually ached if that makes sense. I was given antibiotic eye drops and it cleared up in a matter of days.
