Lisa, it might be due to host of things and it will take me the rest of the week trying to list them. If you have taken antibiotics and treatment more the more common causes, we have to treat your case as FUO (fever of unknown origin). If you mail me at I’ll cut and paste you something which might help direct your doctor in the right direction. Good luck.
