Fever Unknown Origin In Vietnam

Question

When I was in Vietnam I was hospitalized for a couple of weeks for a very high Fever of 104 plus. I was kept under a cold blanket to keep my fever down. I don't remember too much during this time as I was semi-conscious, weak and just sick. There was never a diagnosis for

anything and they called it FUO or Fever Unknown Origin. I have tried to read up on this and some doctors have studied it and it could be anything really. One Vet had parasites after all these years that caused some serious problems later in life. Has anyone here had this while they were in Vietnam??? Some also believe it could be related to Agent Orange and it could be the or a cause as I served as an RTO with the 2/27 Wolfhounds 25th Inf. Div and we humped all through the dead foliage more than a few times, then I was a door-gunner on a huey and I was around it at that time also so who knows. I really don't feel like going through a whole series of test but during the past 12 years my conditioned has definately worsened to the point where I need help in everything I do anymore and I am curious as to whether

any other Veterans had this Fever and if so was there any follow-up???

I had it but they found it was scrub typhus. They treated with antibiotics and it subsided. No residuals that I know of. Good luck!

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
