Thanks for writing your query.
It's unusual to have such fever. Do you have pain? Since pain is the best indicator of infection along with rise in white blood cells, erythrocyte sedimentation rate(ESR), C reactive protein (CRP).My advice would be get above blood test done along with test for malaria.
Take care and wish you early recovery.
