Suffering from headache, fever, dizziness.

9 year old boy woke with headache and dizziness this morning and has been running a fever of 102 - 104 and has chills. Fever goes down with motrin and he seems to feel better but symptoms come back within a couple of hours. He looks pale and has not wanted to do much of anything today. Appetite seems fine.

your son seems to be suffering from viral cold. I would advise you to take him immediately to a pediatrician and get a complete health check up.
Continue the orecscribed medicines in the mean time. Give him nutritious food and plenty of water. He wil be able to do his regular activity once the malaise settles which accompanies the viral cold,
i hope i have answered your query. Take care
