Cycle of Symptons

My 15 year old has been running a high fever off and on for the last 8 days.  It happens about every 10 to 12 hours.  He starts with chills and this lasts about an hour.  This usually leads to nausea.  After that he spikes a fever of around 103 to 104.  After giving him Advil and then Tylenol and sometimes a cool bath, the fever starts working its way down.  Ends with fever finally subsiding to tremendous sweats.  He then feels fine for about 10 hours and then it starts all over again.  Pretty much same cycle each time.  He has also not had an appetite this whole time as well.  We have seen the doctors and ran all kinds of test.  No diagnosis.  Have him on heavy antibiotic.  Still same cycle.  Any thoughts?

I suggest that you go back to the doctors as it was already more than a week that your son is having fevers. I had the same symptoms when I had typhoid fever. It might have been too early to detect the infection when you took him to the hospital. Doctors advise that the patient be taken to them for check up after 3 days of on and off fever. If you're not satisfied with the findings of the doctors who initially checked him, you can always find new ones. Hope this helps.
