Welcome to e health forum.

If you have been having recurrent fevers, then you need to get a few tests done to assess your condition.

Tests including Complete blood count, peripheral blood smear, liver and renal functions, urinalysis, thyroid function tests, blood cultures, and if needed specific testing for conditions like dengue, malaria, tuberculosis, etc can be done.

Consult your physician for a proper opinion.

I hope this helps.
