Hi, My son has been sick for 3 1/2 weeks now and the doctors cant seem to figure out whats wrong with him. He has had a high temp of around 104.0 the whole time hes been sick. He first started out with a sore neck and lower back. A headache, and threw up a few times. Now he says his neck and back dont hurt anymore but the back of his leg does. His hamstring. He still has the temp and gets a headache often. The doctors have tested his white blood count... fine, tested for mono.... didnt have it, did a chest x-ray... fine there too. They thought he had the flu and put him on Tamaflu, that didn't help either. Now they started him on a Z-pack, I guess their cure all when they cant find out what is actualy wrong. He has lost 35 lbs since hes been sick. He's pale and has dark circles under his eyes. He sleeps a lot and gets tired easy. He won't eat much but drinks fluids fine. What im wondering is, if hes had a temp for this long, and they don't know whats wrong with him, why wont they put him in the hospital or run more tests or something? Hes 16 by the way. I don't know what questions to ask the doctor or what to do next. Any help or advice would be great.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
