My son has been experiencing weak legs and sore neck. Saturday night he complained about his neck being stiff and really hurting. Sunday night he developed swollen lymph nodes starting from throat area towards the back of his neck and very hard and painful. Monday took him to the Dr and they did blood tests. Monday night he experienced fever and weakness. Started antibiotics. Today I got his blood test results back and his CRP and ESR levels were high but was told that is just sign of inflamation and/or infection and the antibiotics would clear that up. They scheduled him for a CT of his neck on Friday but I won't get those results until next Tuesday when we meet with the Dr to go over everything. Anyone with any ideas what might be going on with my son. He has never felt exactly great and has been diagnosed with PDD-NOS due to behavioral issues which gets worse of course when he is sick. Fever right now is staying at 100.8. He gets fevers atleast once a week anymore and they go up to 104 sometimes with no signs of any other problem besides being tired with a fever. :confused:
