My husband has been sick for 4 days now symptoms are excessively sweating day and night loss of appetite chills with no fever headache and body aches.

Febrile illness: As long as he is staying the same or getting better, you could give it a few more days of watching him at home. If he seems to be getting worse in any way, however, I would take him to his doctor or to an urgent care center. In the meantime, plenty of fluids. You could use Tylenol or ibuprofen for fevers. Be sure to follow the directions on the box. If he worsens, see his doctor ASAP. Good luck. ...Read more

I had knee replacement 6 weeks ago. Since that time, I have periods of profuse sweating that go into chills. I do not have a fever.?

See your doctor asap: The concern would be that you have developed what we would call a "subacute" infection -- which might involve the replaced knee or surrounding bone, but could potentially even involve the heart. You should see your primary care physician first, and you may need to see your orthopedist as well. ...Read more

Can you get toxic shock syndrome from the plastic from a tampon being left in your vagina? I have had a fever and chills, then extreme periods of sweating along with a lump behing my ear and one that is getting pretty big on my neck below it. These lumps

Toxic: Toxic shock syndrome was felt to be secondary to extremely-absorbable tampons, which became associated with staph and strep infections. Toxic shock syndrome has symptoms of high fever, rash, and often vomiting or diarrhea. If a patient had high fever, vomiting, and rash, then they should consult with their physician. The reasons for swelling behind the ears and in the neck may be a different cause of infection. ...Read more
