Feeling achy, feverish and lack of energy. Lab tests normal. Need to ask a doctor?

I have been feeling achy for about a month. Kind of like I have fever without the fever. No other symptoms what so ever. Just feel like I have no energy at all. This is not an all day thing. It hots me once or twice a day lasting a couple hours then going away. Any clue to what this might be. Also, just had lab work done and the Doctor said everything came back totally normal.

Thanks for your query,
Most common cause of fever is a viral or bacterial infection. Autoimmune processes and drugs can cause fever.
As you mentioned you have intermittent fever for about a month and spite of proper lab investigation doctor has failed to trace cause of fever, it is referred as Fever Of Unknown Origin.
In up to 50% of cases no cause is found.
You should inform your doctor about your work, places you have visited recently,exposure to pets and other animals, family history for possible hereditary causes of fever (familial Mediterranean fever).
You may have an ultrasound, computed tomography (CT) scan, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and Positron Emission Tomography.
You can take Acetaminophen/Asprin to suppress fever like.
Eat healthy diet
Exercise regularly
Drink 6-8 glasses of clean water

Hope it helps.
Take Care!
