Comment from: Pootzen, 55-64 Female (Patient) Published: December 21

I have been running a fever of unknown origin for three years now. Every single day it hits 100 degrees and over when I do normal things like get up, get dressed, make coffee, feed my pets, and wham! All it takes is for me to be on my feet for twenty minutes and I hit 100 degrees and over; every single day for over three years. I have been tested, retested, and tested again for everything! I was diagnosed with tuberculosis two years ago and went through a year of treatment (I am severely allergic to Priftin), then in May of this year I was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis. It has been a rough three years with no answer as to why the daily fevers. I am scheduled for a second PET scan this week - last one was October 2014.

I have recently been recovering from what was diagnosed as pneumonia, and yesterday noticed my fever had returned. Last night and today it was at 36.9 centigrade, and not moving up or down. Diarrhea is constant and greenish, very dark.

I have been coughing, having body aches, my temperature is hot externally but I feel chills internally, have running stomach, dehydration, and loss of appetite for more than 5 days. I went to the doctors and they gave me paracetamol and antibiotics, but no improvement. I went to a different doctor and I still got the same medicine for this fever.

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.
