Brief Answer:
Likely to be due to a viral infection.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone through your query. It is possible that your son has a simple viral infection which is causing the mentioned manifestations. I would insist him to drink plenty of water as proper hydration is very important. If it does not seem to help the next step would be to get his blood pressure checked. Let me know thereafter and I would guide you further.

Let me know if I could help further.
