Yes a fever lasting longer than 24hrs should be checked by a doctor make sure you don't have a larger infection somewhere in your body you might not be aware of. Sepsis is a silent killer and a fever is always one of your body's  warning signals for something wrong and flu symptoms can be misdiagnosed and could be infection.

The fever probably isn't making you tired, it's probably because of whatever you have that's causing the fever....if you've had it more than a few days and its not getting better you should probably see a doctor. Otherwise, my favorite fever-reducer is Motrin. Hope you feel better soon.
