FUO: I consider this abnormal. Your symptoms would qualify as a fever of unknown origin and I recommend that you consult a specialist in infectious diseases for a workup. This may involve entering the hospital for a few days for a battery of tests in order to make a diagnosis in the most expeditious manner.
