    She always has a fever at night but no fever at the morning in this few day.

    She always has a fever at night but no fever at the morning in this few day.

    How should I describe it in more natural?

    Re: She always has a fever at night but no fever at the morning in this few day.

    As it happened in the last few days, why not use the simple past?

    Because it continues to the present.

    Re: She always has a fever at night but no fever at the morning in this few day.

    Is it grammatical to use the present perfect in 'In the past few days, she has always had a fever at night but no fever in the morning.'?
