What could be the cause of reoccurring fever that has lasted months?

Hi,

What could be the cause of excessive mucus build up, excessive sweating, chills, cold sensation on chest and a mild reoccurring fever that has not gone away for the last 5 months?


It started in April 2017. It has been 5 months now.  I do not know exactly what is it and how I caught it.
For the last three months specifically, I have been trying to observe my body very carefully and I can only conclude the virus ( or whatever it is ) is acting like a pattern.

I produce excessive mucus which I would spit out every 2 to 3 hours.
When I produce mucus, I also notice that my body temperature slightly elevates and I start feeling cold.
This happens about every other day.
Also on some days, I would be sweating excessively.
On some days, I would have this cold sensation on my chest as if my chest is getting wet compared to the rest of my body.
And the thing that stays persistent 24-7 is my clogged ears. Both of my ears are always clogged. I also have small amount of ear discharge daily. The doctor has examined my ears and confirmed that he can see some liquid.
I have had two blood tests so far - CBC ( Complete blood count )
Both of these blood tests showed I have high number of Monocytes.

My numbers:
Test 1: 1.0    Normal Range (0.2 - 0.8 x 10E9/L)
Test 2: 1.1    Normal Range (0.2 - 0.8 x 10E9/L)

I have also had mono screening done and its not mono.

My doctor has said that its probably a virus and it will go away on its own.
But it has been 5 months and I am not feeling any better. It stays constant.

Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks
