Once every two to three years I start running a fever complete with chills. The fever goes as high as 103 but soon breaks. My stomach hurts, my feet hurt, and I talk out of my head, never making any sense to anyone around me. I've been doing this since I was in my 20's. I'm now 53. I've been to the doctor both during and after this situation but they can't find anything wrong. These symptoms usually last two to three days. I have dry heaves and headache. Any suggestions?
(I guess you never had malaria?).
See if you can see if anything triggers it. Next time it happens write down everything you did and ate just prior to the incident.
When it happens be sure that you coddle yourself during and after it happens. Some bug apparently gets loose in you (or you immune system goes crazy for a time). You definitely don't want this to happen with greater frequency so pamper yourself and keep your body as rested and strong as possible.
Have you been tested for Lyme Disease?
I have heard of this before but I don't know what it is. I have heard of people who push themselves through incidences like this and have more trouble recovering.
