In brief: Autoimmune disease
Unexplained recurrent fever can be a sign of hidden infection, cancer, or autoimmune disease like lupus or rheumatoid arthritis.
Common medications can also cause recurrent fever. You need a doctor who is a sleuth. The timing of your fevers, medical history, exposures to animals, medications, and physical exam findings will give clues. Look up "fever of unknown origin" for more info.

In brief: Thorough examination
Blood work is a minor part of the evaluation of a patient.
When a problem goes unsolved, a thorough history and very thorough physical examination may get to the bottom of the problem. Contact your doctor for re-evaluation.

In brief: FUO
Possibly an entity named 'fever of unknown origin'; but this usually requires fevers continually for 6 weeks.
A missed abscess may present in this way as well. Please have your doctor follow up on this! hope all is well.
