Motrin, Tylenol... I had to go to Urgent care since my PCP and backup had no office hours yesterday.. 

 

No puking, no abnormal crapping, good appetite... Just high fevers and every night I wake up absolutely shivering\shaking from the fever... Urgent care took a strep test (the instant result kind) and it as negative but he said "it could still be bacterial"   He prescribed Amoxicillin-Clav (Amoxicillin and Clavulanate Potassium Tablets)

 

Hoping this crap works. I haven't taken an anti-biotic in over 12 years... 

 

If I die, good knowing ya'll...

That’s how it started with Prince...or was it Aaron Hernandez...

 

Hernandez, he was so wracked with fever, his tossing and turning caused the sheet to get wrapped around his neck.

My 1 year old daughter had high fever 2 weeks ago. No other symptoms but the fever and lethargy. Her pediatrician told us to take her to hospital for blood work. They stuck this thing up her nose to test for flu. Turns out it was flu. Very late in the season flu, nurses were shocked and said they thought it was over.

I use to love when Jimbo would post a T&P thread at the first tingle in his throat... turned out it was normal with Bernie so he stopped.

If it doesn't go away you need a full evaluation by someone that knows wtf they're doing.....meaning not a drive-by history and physical.   High fever with no other symptoms is a bit odd.

What/who would you suggest if you don’t think your PCP is qualified?

Lyme without headache and arthralgia to go along with the high fevers is less likely but always in the differential along with other tickborne misery.
