For the past three months my 13 year old son has been sick. It started with high fever 102, to 104. after 3 visits to the dr and to ER he was diagnosed with pnumonia. Two rounds of z pacs and many sleepless nights the dr said his xrays were clear. Since the pnumonia he continues to get high fevers 102, 103. He only stays well 2 or 3 days at a time. I take him to the Dr. regularly. I tell them somthing is not right. I make sure he eats veggies and fruit, drinks water. I was told by the Dr that it is normal for preteens to have high fevers for no reason. This did not sit right with me. Has any one eles been told or know this to be true? I am not sure how worried I should be.View Thread
