Infection?: The main cause for unexplained fever is infection and sometimes it's hard to identify the focus. If fever continues, he may need a thorough work up in the hospital, including blood and other fluid cultures, scans, ultrasounds and a work up for other infrequent causes of fever, such as autoimmune diseases and tumors.
Thermostat Setting: Fever is when you body's thermostat is set higher than normal. When the thermostat in your house is raised, the heat goes on to increase the temperature. "Chills" is how your body generates heat - basically your muscles produce that extra heat. The "Cytokines" released by your body in response to any infection appear to regulate this thermostat. BTW "Fever Breaks" when you sweat to cool down.
Need more info: This doesn't sound serious at first glance, but you need to see a doctor to decide if you have something more ominous based on recent history and a good physical exam. See your doctor or an urgent careMD to make sure if you are concerned, especially if your symptoms have not improved over a few days.See 1 more doctor answer

Flu: If you have the Flu hydrate well w water, herbal teas, soup or juice. Drink sufficiently to have pale to light yellow urine. You can use pain relievers like Tylenol (acetaminophen) or NSAID’s. Rest A LOT! In some situations antiviral medications (Tamiflu, Relenza, Flumadine) may be prescribed within the first couple of days of symptoms to hasten healing or they can be used after flu exposure to prevent illness.
Fever & chills: First of all, drink a lot of fluids and continue taking Ibuprofen every 6 - 8 hours for temperatures of 102 and over. If the fever continues especially if you develop other symptoms like cough, vomiting, abdominal pain, fatigue and weakness after 24 - 48 hours, consult your primary provider. Feel better soon.
Go to the Doctor: Given your symptoms the next step is to be seen by your family doctor.
Technically, no: There are a variety of definitions for fever but in general, oral temperatures below 100 or so are not considered a fever. The body temperature varies throughout the day and throughout the menstral cycle in women. Of course, this says nothing about why you are weak. I would suggest seeing your doctor for a thorough evaluation.
