Feel sick, have various symptoms of illness, but never get fever. Why?

I ve never had a fever . Ever. When I was a baby my parents used to take me to the doctor when I got a little fussy because they had no solid way of telling when I was ill. Doctors don t believe me when I m sick. They treat me like I m there for attention because I don t have a fever, they tell me that if I ve never had a fever I ve never been sick, which is totally not true, like the time I was 13 and almost died from strep throat but couldn t get a diagnosis until I was inches from death all because I didn t have a fever. Anyway, I haven t been to a doctor for five years because I m so tired of being treated like I m nuts because I don t have a fever. Like right now, I ve had a cold that s been getting progressively worse for three weeks. I know that s not a cold, but I know nothing will be done for me because you guessed it. I don t have a fever. What the frick is wrong with me? How do I convince doctors that I m actually sick even though I don t have a fever?

Thanks for writing to health care magic. '

If you do not have a fever you do not have that. So do not worry about that and do not try to convince the doctor for what you do not obviously have. Try and tell him all the problems you have and get your self treated for that. If for example you have some body aches, cold etc tell him that you have all those and get treatment for that rather than trying to convince him about the fever.

Continue to ask further queries as required.
Hope this helps.
Take care.
