Is my child suffering from periodic fever syndrome ?

Hi, my son is 4 1/2. He has had reoccurring fevers for 4 months. They get as high as 105. It s almost like his body crashes for about a week, and then he is fine for about a month until it happens again.Along with his fever, he has lower leg and feet pain, and eyes are really sensitive to everything. He says they hurt. No other symptoms. I m desperate for answers. Thank you, Heather We have seen several doctors and they can t seem to tell us whats going on with our little boy. When i was little i had a mutation of my genes .

Hello There..
Welcome to healthcare magic forum..
I am sorry to hear about your baby..There may be various reasons for prolonged fever such as Bacterial disease such as abscess, tuberculosis, UTIs, hepatobiliary infections, Viral diseases such as HIV, AIDS, Fungal infections, Parasitic infections, Neoplasms such as lymphomas, leukemia, Collagen vascular diseases,Endocrine disorders etc. Your baby needs a detailed investigation including all the blood investigations, Xrays and CT scan to determine the cause of prolonged fever. I would suggest you to consult a paediatrician especially when your baby has an episode of fever and get these investigations done..
Hope this helps!!
Take care..
