on 6-3-15 I started getting nightly 2-3 degree fevers for 12-16 hours per day. At the same time I started getting deep muscle aches in both of my legs, starting with both thighs. Then terrible fatigue set in on the leg muscles affected by the pain. I could barely walk. I had some drenching night-sweats and bad chills during the first 3 weeks as well. My WBC count was 13.9 at this point (before any treatment). I went to 2 doctors so far and have tried 4 anti-biotics. Doxycycline, Augmentin, azithromycin and Biaxin (the latest. I am on a 21 day regiment). All bring WBC cell counts down to about 11.0 and drive the fever away for no more than 1-2 hours per night at 1 degree above normal. But none of then drive it away for good. t always comes creeping back a few days after the medication is thru. Plus, I have COPD (had it 16 years and I never smoked), so this is a constant deadly complication. What do you think I should do? Another Doctor? The hospital? They aren't going to let me in via the emergency room with only 1 degree of fever!
