Why Does A Person Run High Fever When They Are Dying
My son who is 7 yrs old has been running a high fever but nothing else is wrong what do u think it is?
Many possibilities: Statistically, the most common cause of fever in a kid will be a viral infection. Realistically, the only way to identify the fever's source is for the kid to have an evaluation by a physician. If the kid acts normally, engaging in play & taking fluids & feeds well you can monitor the issue at home. If this changes an evaluation could be planned.See 1 more doctor answer
My boy (2 yrs old) is running a high fever 39.6 degree, there is no signs from outside, what should I do?
Depends: Fever, by itself, is rarely harmful. What you need to be concerned about is: what is causing the fever. A temp of 39.6 could be from a cold or could be from meningitis. If your child is acting "sick" then you should call your doctor for further advice. If he is running around and acting fine without any other symptoms, then it should be safe to just monitor her for a day or two.
Flu DX 1.5 wks ago. Still running a low to moderately high fever and feel crummy w/low energy levels. When will this end? I want to be better.
Can take up to: 2 weeks. However, if symptoms are worsening see a doctor as a post-viral pneumonia can occur.
Depends: If her fevers go away with meds and she otherwise looks ok, it is probably viral. Viral infections do not go away with antibiotics at all. They just have to "run it's course". If fever is not decreasing by day five or if your child looks bad even when not having a fever, check with your doctor. There are other things that could be causing it as well.See 1 more doctor answer
4 hours after my long run yesterday, and after a bath, I started having convulsive chills with high fever which lasted through the night. Why?
Better now?: You could have overdone it. Could be toxic metabolic or bacteremia. Drink fluids like Gatorade or juices after a long run. If better today fine. If not and still having fevers, see a doc. Having done a long run sounds like you are generally healthy. If you do these once in a blue moon you are likely to have such phenomena. Be careful dieting at the same time. Urine rust colored?
My 2 yr old son feels like he is running a high fever but he has been outside playing in the heat could he be hot from the heat.

What could be causing me to run a really high fever, loss of appetite, nausea, achy all over? I've been like this for a week now.
Influenza?: Symptoms sound typical of flu—fever, generalized aches & pains, lack of energy, loss of appetite. Good new is that it should be over soon (after a week); if not, or getting worse, may have bacterial infection as well, in which case, see doc. Meanwhile, tylenol (acetaminophen) or NSAID for fever & aches, rest, fluids. Otc theraflu has ingredients that cover several symptoms. Get flu shot this sept/oct.See 1 more doctor answer
My 6 year had been to the doctor twice and he had been on antibodies for 6 days and still running a high fever why does he still have a fever?
What to do about my daughters high fever she is still drinking milk but is running a high fever. She's 13 months took her to doctor last night?
Good news/bad news: The good news is you had your daughter seen & they didn't find a terrible problem. The bad news is that many viral illnesses will have fever as part of their natural course & meds may not alter the fever. The fever is not destructive, it is a sign the body recognizes illness & speeds up it's metabolism to fight it. I would concentrate more on assuring good fluid intake to avoid dehydration.
Consult a physician: Because chest pain can be very atypical and present different ways and can present a variety of different illnesses that could potentially be serious I recommend a consultation with a physician. A detailed history and physical examination will have to determine what is the underlying cause of your symptoms.
Can a patient that has brain stem swelling run a high fever and will there be any long term problems from this?
Very complicated.: This is a situation which cannot be answered in a few words. There are many potential complications, infectious and otherwise, in a patient with brain swelling (which may not be limited to the brain stem). This sounds like a potentially life-threatening situation and discussing it with the patient, their doctor, or the family would be best. Hope they are better soon.
I tested positive for d dimer blood test but my tc showed nothing so I got sent home from ER now I'm running a high fever with intense back pain?
D-dimer: Is a rather nonspecific test and it helps mostly when is negative ruling out acute thromboembolism. In your case the test failed to rule it out and that's why you underwent CT angio. With your symptoms, you should still seek medical attention trying to find out a source that at this time and with limited information seems to be likely infectious, among others. Hope it helps.
