My 13 yr old son has had recurrent fevers for 2 yrs now (beginning a few months after his father died tragically) He has had many blood tests which all come back normal. Sometimes he has other symptoms with fever but not always. He does have psoriasis (also beginning 2 years ago).
A few of the other sporatic symptoms are headache, heartburn, paleness, general unwell feeling) His knees hurt at times but this could also be growing pains. His blood tests came back normal for JRA. He misses alot of school. The doctors have not been able to diagnosis. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!!!

  • No..exercise or activity doesn't seem to make it better or worse...

  • It sounds like an autoimmune problem probably triggered by stress. Look up spondylarthropathy.
