Still No Help From Doc

I posted awhile back about having an on and off low grade fever and not feeling up to par. I went to an internist who did a thorough exam and extensive bloodwork w/ urine also.....found nothing wrong, everything was fine he said. He didn't seem concerned about the 99.7 fever I had in his office yesterday. I told him it is running between 98.4 - 99.8 but still he wasn't concerned. asked alot of questions about infection but he said my white blood count was good. I asked about cancer as I've heard it can cause this and he said there would be no need for testing unless I developed other symptoms.....ggrrrrr. I'm very frustrated! This is the 2nd doc to do this to me. What can I do now? I want to know WHY I'm having these fevers and stop it. And if it is cancer I'd like to know early rather than late.

Any suggestions??

Thanks!

Allergies can cause low grade fever sometimes.

When your body is trying to fight off an infection a person may have a low grade fever.
