I have been having fever and pain since last two days and currently my mouth taste is virulent and I have pain all over my body. My body temperature is not so high and pulse rate is normal, but I feel blood pressure is low.

My wife has been running a fever since July 2014. We have been to all sorts of specialists and no one can figure it out. It has taken a serious toll on our marriage and I am fed up with her feeling horrible all the time.

My husband runs low grade fever, he gets lethargic, his moods change, and he will wet his clothes. He is 81 but no sign of Alzheimer's. He is diabetic.

My friend had to go to the emergency room (ER) due high fever and the ER nurse requested adult rectal temperature taken by nurse. She stayed in the hospital due serious fever. Two day later she was discharged from the hospital.
