Hi, just joined and have no where else to turn for possible answers. I was a healthy, active young mom of two kids under 3. During the last few weeks of October 2014 i developed a sinus infection (fever, congestion) and got a zpak from my dr and the fever went away And came back on the last day so I waited a week and the fever still didn't go away and I was still sick with sinus pressure but no congestion. The dr put me on levaquin and by the 3rd day I wasn't eating and I got very nauseous & started getting chills/shaking with numbness and tingling in my hands and feet. So I went in the next day and dr switched me to clindamycin and did a chest X-ray and sinus xray and everythkng was clear. I also started some prednisone and I'm not sure what was going on but I was unable to eat, was getting chills/whole body shaking. This whole time the fever has gone as high as over 101. But I've usually been 99.8-99.3. My normal--back when I was healthy temp used to be 97.8-98.3. During November I lost 12 lbs (I started at 133 and dropped to 121)and wasn't able to eat at all and actually started getting blood in my stool. We did a emergency ct scan that showed thickening of my distal colon and a regular cyst on my kidney. But everything else was unremarkable. So we did a colonoscopy which was unremarkable as well. A small hyperplastic polyp that was removed. But my symptoms still persisted. I've had neck/shoulder pain so I've also done a lumbar puncture to rule out meningitis. I get headaches more frequently than I ever have in my life. I'm constantly tired and I don't know if it's from the fever. My appetite came back once I was off all the meds during December. But I definitely had days where my appetite would just be gone. I've seen an ent that has told me there's nothing wrong with my sinuses. I've been seeing an infectious dz dr that claims it's just something "viral" and it will "burn itself out eventually" I'm in my 3rd month here with this fever that will not break. I was off work for 2 months since I've essentially been bedridden. But since all my blood work has consistently been coming back "normal" all of my drs advised me to suck it up and get back to work. Sorry for such a long story. I guess what I'm trying to ask is, has anyone had a persistent low grade fever associated with their CFS? My ebv antibodies were high showing that I did have an active ebv infection like mono at some point in my life, but wasn't showing an active infection now. If you've had fevers with your Cfs how are you handling them? I've tried drinking tons of water and I'm tired of having to take tylenol and advil to only bring it down 0.1-0.3degrees!
