  • You mentioned everything except what he truly needs:a thorough neurological exam.It sounds as if he has a motor neuron disease.I'm just not sure which one.Many neurological problems have normal lab results.

  • Regarding his fever,does he have chills or night sweats?I'm thinking that whatever is going on with him neurologically is affecting his thermoregulatory center in his brain.
