    week long fever
    keeeth posted:
    My 12 year old son was fine all day last week on Weds. until the evening when he got up to go to the kitchen and almost pasted right out on the floor, I took him to the couch and asked whats going on and he started to cry holding his head saying he had a headache. I took his temp and he was 102.5 and gave him some tyenol and put him to bed, I went up 1/2 hour later to see if his fever came down and it was 103.1 I then cool clothed him and checked it again in another 1/2 hour and it peeked at 104. I stayed up with him all that night and by morning it was back down to atleast 101-102 the fever stayed off and on till Sunday morning going as low as 101 and as high as 103 but still nothing else but headache, tired and 1 day of a runny nose. He went to school Mon., Tues. and today Weds. but came home today complaining of a headache and being realy tired and again now 101. The only other thing I can think of is no he hasn't eaten alot this week but still has eaten. Please Help, Thank you
