Gud evening.
Is the fever associated with chills and rigor?
Is she having diarrhea?
Any complaints of cold and cough.
If any of the complaints are associated with your mothers fever.
I would advice her to get complete blood picture, blood culture and sensitivity , widal test and QBC for malaria.
These tests will help in coming to diagnosis of the disease of your mother.
With that you can proceed further.
I hope I cleared your doubts.
I wish your mother speedy recovery nd good health. Rate my answer.
I find this answer helpful
