:confused: Hello - My boyfriend Brian has been in the hospital for three days now with an unexplained fever and chills. His fever will break (sweats and all) only to re-spike several hours later with seizure-like chills. He has no other symptoms. They've done an ultrasound on his gallbladder and a CT Scan, which has revealed nothing. His blood comes back fine (slightly elevated white count but nothing alarming) and his urinalysis is fine. So far, his fever has peaked at 105. They've ruled out gallbladder problems, kidney problems and menengitis. His doctor has given us a rather generic diagnosis of "unknown virus". WHAT??? Does anyone have any idea what this could be???

  • Not to worry. My son just came home from the hospital after 4 days. Sometimes a virus with just into us for no know reason. I believe my son caught the virus at the swimming pool. it will take about two weeks for all the symptoms to go away.

  • Thanks, Guardsman. Brian got out of the hospital yesterday and it looks like his fever is a thing of the past. Hope your son is feeling better! :)
