Sudden fever, shaking, unable to walk, sore throat. Taken motrin. Cause of concern?

Should I worry if my child has sudden shaking and fever? Example, my 7 yr old was asleep woke up shaking and fever. He shook so bad he could hardly walk to the bathroom. Within a half hour his temp went from 101 to 103, I had given him motrin earlier in the eveing because he complained of a sore throat . Earlier there was no fever when I gave him the motrin at 6pm.

Welcome to Healthcare Magic Forum,
This fever might be due to infection in his throat. Fever will only subside if he starts taking a proper antibiotic. He needs to be examined by a doctor and decide on what antibiotic to be given so that his fever can be taken care of soon.
Hope your child gets well soon.
