    Fever anyone?
    missist posted:
    I've been all kinds of flared up the past several weeks-- I think from physical therapy and traction. I think it somehow touched it off.

    I've even had ibs again which I havent had in 20 yrs.

    One thing I'm noticing I have no energy and I'm so tired I get up and go back to sleep. But if I get up and try to do ANYTHING I get a slight fever.

    Now normally my temp runs really low and I've been getting chills and heat alternating so I got a thermometer & started chcking to see if I have a virus or something.

    The past week in particular has been this way.

    so temp is a low grade fever but I am always about 98.1 like clockwork so its weird.

    Any ideas? Thankfully I have physical coming up- which I'm going to ask for another ana, my last one was raised although a follow up at the time with a rheumy revealed nothing; and I'm wondering if something is going on autoimmune.

    feel like crap and that's a fact jack.

    hey mary. sorry to hear that you're feeling so bad! I don't get fevers with fibro. but I have a lot of inflammation, like now I have to hunt and peck to type due to neuropathy. so this has been a tough week for me as well.

    I pray that you will feel much better soon, if you want, we can chat on fb sometime. linda swanson in Jacksonville fl
