I am a 30 yr old woman and have had a fever, body aches, chills, and heavy sweating for 12 days. It comes down with Tylenol, but goes right back up when it wears off. I have no rashes, pains (other than body aches when fever is up), sore throat, breathing problems or any clues to what the problem is. I've been on 2 different antibiotics, but neither worked. I am about to start a third, but I am not optimistic, as it does not seem much different than the last antibiotic. Blood Work and urine are normal. I am going back to the doctor in 3 days if the third antibiotic does not help. What could be wrong with me???
