Thank you we are having him drink water and he did have a better urination but he took a zytek last night for sinus drainage. Yes he passes urine, regular and no pain no swelling in abdomen

Thank you for the input.
I am very sorry for his symptoms.
There can be a few causes for the feeling.
This can be due to onset of an infection.
A number of infections can cause it.
This can be bacterial or viral infection like flu.
Another common cause is urinary infection where he can have chills without any change in urine.
A collection of pus can cause these symptoms.
Please try to keep the room warm by room heater.

Please give water to drink as you are giving.
If you feel rise in temperature, Tylenol can be given
If the symptom continues, I would advise to take an examination by doctor.
A few tests like urine, CBC can be taken.
I hope this information will be helpful.
If you have any query, please feel free to ask.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
