What is your normal temp?

Ask Your Own Medical Question

It seems like you have stepped away.

99.5 is not a fever.

A fever is 100.5 or greater.

If I were you, I would call your doctor and let him know about your symptoms as soon as possible.

Thank you it was just scary because i never had a high temp in 2 weeks and my ear still hurts.

You should have your ear checked out with your doctor.

Ask Your Own Medical Question

You should also continue to monitor your temps. and call the on-call physician with their group to let them know.

I had a ear doc look and he saw nothing in my ear. This happened last time of my surgery 1.8 years ago. But it was the radiation that hurts it.

Oh I see. Do you have any pain medications to take?

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.

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.
