Hey Randy sorry bout your troubles...
i had 103 temp last year for about a week before i went to the hospital. i had just started taking Humira and it crashed my immune system so hard that i got histoplasmosis and was in the hospital for 13 days. I still had a minor fever when i went home. anyway I had the same type of fevers soo hot then cold and sweaty. They did about every test imaginable to me including a spinal tap to find out that it was histoplasmosis. I hope that you get better and have nothing to do with histo it is quite nasty. But my symptoms were just like yours and wanted to share.
