Mysterious fevers without origin. EVERY NIGHT! For about a year!

I've been to every local hospital. This has been going on for as long as i can remember..a couple months if so year. I have a congenital heart condition. I have bicuspid aortic valve. In the past i was treated for endocarditis. Ever night I get really bad fever. I go to sleep and wake up in the middle of the night shaking and shivering. My whole bed is soaked with foul smelling sweat. Everytime i go to the hospital they say its a viral infection. They give me antibiotics and liquid. It makes me feel better but a couple days after it happens again. I feel worthless because this is ruining my life. I am failing school because i stay up all night shivering. I can't get work done because i feel so weak and dizzy. My eyes hurt. My head hurts extremely. I get aches all over my body. My abdominal area hurts. My chest area around my heart hurts. When this happens i have no appetite at all. I had protein in my urine. I don't know what to do and everywhere i go nobody can seem to help me. A couple days ago my primary doctor has referred me to an oncologist, ent, and cardiologist. I probably missed other symptoms but this is all i can remember of the top of my head. the doctor said i have fever with out origin. Should i go to the hospital now because i have 101 but i feel everytime i go they just tell me there is nothing wrong. They probably think i am crazy because i go there so often. By the way i forgot to say, im 23 years old. Thanks

In adults, a fever of 103.5 or higher means you have to go to the hospital.

I hope your new cardiologist can find out whats going on, it must be exhausting!

Well, I just spoke to my Doc who is a Cardiologist (I'm a medic in Afghanistan). Although it's a very vague response, he says it's either Malignancy, and Infection, or Autoimmune. He also says since you have a history of endocarditis, it is common to have a hidden abscess which can cause these symptoms. Good luck

Test for hypothyroidism/iodined deficiency. Start reading up and you'll realize how they are tied.
