My 7 year old boy developed a fever about a week ago.


Q: My 7 year old boy developed a fever about a week ago and within 4 day the fever is gone but till now he complains from a headache and he is asleep / low energy most the day. We are now almost on the 8 th day with the same symptoms of low energy And want to sleep all the time . Took him twice to a doctor, did blood work on first visit, white count showed normal and results came negative on strip throat. 2nd visit which is 2 days later from the first one did oxygen testing by the finger and came normal . I'm concern on his very low energy and want to sleep all the time , all what is given to him now is over the counter Tylenol and Motrin , please advise .
