I need somebody's help or any information anyone can give to me out there. My friend has a son that is 2 years and 9 months old. He has been in the hospital since this Friday with a high fever of 103, 104, and 105.
This has happened to him before a couple months back where his fever was so high that he had a seizure. He was rushed to the hospital and given medicine and tested and everything came back okay. He was then released the next day after his fever went down. Once again no explanation.
Now it has started again and there is no explanation to it. The doctors keep telling my friend that his blood work and white cells are fine. There is nothing abnormal about them. Today at around 7 p.m. his fever went down to 99 degrees but just in a couple of hours shot right back up to 104.5.
The doctors don't have any answers and have ruled out bacterial meningitis with out giving him a lumbar puncture because he can move his neck and joints and the juvenile arthritis has also been ruled out.
I have read about this Mediterranean virus out there and yes both there parents have that background so they have told the doctors about it and are patiently waiting for them to look into it.
He has no other symptoms except for the high fever. He has lost so much weight because he won't eat because of the high fever and is on an IV. He is wetting his diaper which is a good sign the doctors say but still have no answers. He is lethargic and not coherent at all.
I BEG ANYONE THAT HAS ANY INFORMATION OR ANYTHING RELATED TO PLEASE PLEASE
