Abdominal pain, nausea, low grade fever, lethargy. What is the issue?

I have an 11 y.o. male who has had abdominal pain , nausea , low grade (99.8) fever and lethargy for several days now (5 days and getting worse). Heading to Pediatrician tomorrow. Wondering if West Nile is a possibility (several cases in our immediate area). Not sure what the issue could be. Was on vacation in orlando last week. Any thoughts?

Please inform your Pediatrician about your son's vacation.
West Nile fever is a mosquito borne viral infection which has an incubation period of 2 - 15 days. This means it can take any time from 2 to 15 days for this disease to show up after the virus enters the body through mosquito bite. In many, the disease remains asymptomatic.
Hope this helps.
