Started feeling bad with weakness...
Started feeling bad with weakness and fatigue a week ago. I didn't realize I was running a temp until a couple of days later. For the past 3 days I have felt stronger in mind and body but still running a fever. It has been staying around 99.3 to 99.5 for the last 24 hrs. It did not go above 99.6 since I've been taking it. I really have no other symptoms other than from the fever with aches, a little weakness and unable to concentrate. I never get sick. Can I wait it out to run its course and if so how long? I am a 55 year old female with high BP in meds, hyperthyroidism on meds and high cholesterol in meds. I have a good appetite. No symptoms of bladder or bowel, no change in bowel habits. Thanks

Since it has been a week already; you need investigations.

This is all the more important to be investigated as you have history of hypertension, high cholesterol and hyperthyroidism; all of which may lower body immunity.

The most common cause of low grade fever is urinary tract infection which may not cause any urinary symptoms. So you need urine routine, urine culture, blood culture, blood counts, metabolic panel and sedimentation rate for the evaluation.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

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.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
