Recurring fever & fatigue?
8 days ago (on a Wed) our son (almost 6, perfectly healthy, rarely ever gets sick) spiked a fever, at it's highest it was 103.5, he had no other symptoms except exhaustion. We knew he had been exposed to strep so we took him to the doctor the next morning, just in case. The doctor thought his lymph nodes felt a big enlarged, so he ran CBC, mono, strep swab and urine. Gave us a follow up apt for the results. By later that morning (Thurs) his fever was gone and he was fine. He was fine all Friday, Sat, Sun, Mon. We went back Monday for the results - Mono, strep were negative, urine was clear but CBC showed his WBC was only 2.4 and his platelets were 109. So the doctor repeated the blood work again. Tuesday, my sons' fever spiked again - same thing, no other symptoms at all except exhaustion. His fever broke sometime in the night. We went back Wednesday morning for the results - his WBC was back up to 9, platelets still a bit low at 114. My son was fine all day yesterday, no fever, playing great, and now this morning again, he has another fever, and he's exhausted again. We're set to go back Monday for more blood work... but what is this? This doesn't sound like just a virus to me.
