For the past 1 1/2 weeks very night I run a fever when the fever breaks I have cold sweats for hours should I be worried. GB is fine no UTI either?

I have some concern: Fever and night sweats for 10 days is concerning. While such a fever could be due to a self limited viral illness, more serious infections or inflammatory conditions could be the cause. You should SEE A PHYSICIAN for evaluation. Your doctor will take a travel history and question you about other symptoms. A series of blood tests may be needed. For more information see: http://bit.ly/1xlhiYT ...Read more
