Probably virus: It may be a mild viral illness and that is just not making her too sick. Fevers always go up at night. As long as she is playful, eating well, and otherwise appears well, don't worry. If she continues to run fevers at night for longer than a week, you should probably have her evaluated by a healthcare professional. ...Read more

UTI: I'm happy to hear that you have a diagnosis which can explain your fever. However, your doctor should also have given you an antibiotic to treat urinary tract infection. Also should figure out why/how you got infection as men are less prone to UTI than women. Kidney stone? Ureteral stenosis? Bladder or prostate issue? Std? Anal intercourse? ...Read more

Further tests!: Your diagnoses don't explain your symptoms. Since it's not normal to have nighttime fevers, you need further testing. Please see your doc again and find out why you are sick. If you aren't satisfied with the answer, consider getting a second opinion. ...Read more

Nebulized medication: Although the problem appears to be from a viral infection, some may require a nebulized bronchodilator and/or steroid to get over the chest congestion. Talk to your doctor about it. ...Read more

Fever every night ( at night only)for the past month accompanied by pain in the muscles of the hands that is slightly better with pain medication ?

Get checked: Persistent fever is not normal. Keep a diary and record the temperatures. Note whether medication for fever is needed and how long it takes for the fever to resolve. Note any other symptoms (such as the hand pain). Schedule a doctor's visit to initiate a work up for possible causes (infection, autoinflammatory diseas etc.). ...Read more

Seeing a doctor: Sounds like you have an infection for about 7 days and the best thing to do for your own health is to be examined by a doctor to find out the cause and recommend appropriate therapy. ...Read more
