Fever is a non specific symptom... It could mean just about anything.
Fever that recurs over weeks to months needs to be looked at by your doctor.
How long have you had this, how frequently, and how high is your fever when it hits?
Any other symptoms?
are you there?
I seem to get it every Sunday. For the first 2 Sundays, it went away with fluids, rest, Tylenol, and Advil by the end of the night or the next morning. But since this last Sunday, it has been coming back again and again until now.
It has ranged from 98.7 to 99.6.
That is not a particular worrisome story. The most I would do if you were to come to see me in the office would be to check a blood count, and that would likely be normal.
Without other symptoms this is something I would bring up with your doctor, but not something that I would be seen for today or tomorrow.
And your temperature just barely qualifies as a 'fever'
For the first 2 Sundays, other symptoms I had with it were feeling very weak and tired, feeling nervous and shaky, and feeling like I was going to collapse. Since this last Sunday, it hasn't really been accompanied with any other symptoms; I don't think.
Then you need to be seen to have some basic labs checked.
That is if I felt any other symptoms, it might have really been nothing.
It sounds like nothing to worry about, yet you are here asking me about it, so I think the best thing to do is to check in with your doctor.
I did have blood work done and the doctor said that my liver, kidneys, calcium, blood count, and everything were fine. He just increased my Synthroid from 125 MCG to 150 since my TSH was 7.1.
Asking about this is like asking if it's going to rain in three weeks.... We can guess, but we will be innacurate.
that sounds very reasonable
you did not mention that you were hypothyroid
so this could all be related to adjustments in your thyroid's function
The only concern of mine was a persistent fever.
That just seemed weird to me.
it is not a persistent fever, it's barely a fever.
you have periods of time, days, when your temperature is normal
so this is not a persistent fever
