I have been running low-grade fevers (99-100 degrees F), daily for the past two months. My doc ran a cbc w/diff and the results were basically normal, but indicated some inflammation going on. Additionally, I suffer from symptoms of IBS and IC. I was treated with antibiotics for ten days, just in case there was an underlying infection. Still, the fevers persist. I know my doc thinks I'm a hypochondriac, but I believe my body is sending a distress signal. None of my online medical research has located any disorder with my exact symptoms. Any ideas? I'm desperate!

  • Unfortunately I do not have an answer, but if it's any consolation, my 12 year old son is dealing with the exact same thing, except he has a headache with his fever....but no other symptoms. He has had numerous tests, xrays and several blood tests (cbc and others) which are all negative. The last one showed a slightly low white blood count, implying a "virus", but can a virus last for 2 to 3 months??? I understand what you mean by they think you're a hypochondriac, because I'm getting the feeling from them! It's so frustrating and I am very concerned about my son! He has missed ALOT of school because of these mystery continuous fevers!!!If I learn anything , I'll be sure to let you know. Please let me know if you do as well. I posted a forum tonight under the name of tmarie.Thanks & GOD BLESS.
