what is correct "I am suffering from fever" or "I am suffering with/through fever" ??? please comment with grammatical explanations, thanks.

This probably come way too late, but the correct answer would be "I am suffering from fever": "from" indicates the cause of your suffering.

You can say "I am suffering with fever", but it just sounds odd. "I am suffering through fever" is also correct, although it adds the dimension of time: you are going through a phase, in this case fever. The latter formulation is more commonly used when the affliction is severe (or more so than is ususal): "I am suffering through a bad case of fever".
