This eHow page describes the differences between three grades of fever -- low, medium and high.  http://www.ehow.com/way_5200267_call-doctor-fever.html

If someone's normal temperature is, say, 2F lower than normal (96.6F instead of 98.6F) would the threshold between the grades also be 2F lower?

This is the fifth day I've had a fever.  Frankly I'm getting a little tired of it.



My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.

Do you have any symptoms besides fever?  What made you take your temperature?  Did you feel ill?

symptoms are:
chills
body aches
sinus and chest congestion
cough with some phlegm
fatigue
dizziness
fever-induced dreams

My appetite is fine.

The first two were what made me think my temperature was high.


I measured 99.1 on Monday.  Today it was 100.2.  Each intervening day's was a little higher than the day before. My normal is 96.8 (not 98.6).

Advil brings it down.

I don't know the answer to your original question, Squarepeg, but it sounds like you either caught a bug or the body found one hiding somewhere that it is fighting...  The fever is the body's way to kill pathogens, so it may be counterproductive to take Advil to attempt to bring the fever down.

Are you taking anything to help the immune system?
Without knowing whether it is viral or bacterial, I would boost immune support - but look at the other two and maybe pulmonary support for ideas...

If this continues, please consider seeing a doctor to get tested for Lyme disease.  Ticks are everywhere this time of year....Lyme is prevalent in the Northeast although your symptoms don't
sound like Lyme (which could give you body aches and chills but also terrible headaches, stiff neck and a much higher fever) Just something to consider if your fever doesn't go down soon.  Sometimes the fever comes first and the achy symptoms just keep on getting worse.

Hope you feel better soon.

as ABJoe said .........

do you have olive leaf or graviola at your hand I don't know if you'd like to give a try to bee propolis, a beautiful aid and helper in such cases as well but as being an O you might have reactions onto this stuff...

My temperature was 97.2 this morning.

The sensation of chills went away after I took a hot shower, which followed a nice, homemade chicken curry dish.

I do know that a fever is our body's way of killing viruses and bacteria.  So I was favoring more carbs in my diet to try to add fuel to my body's furnace.  I also supplemented with garlic and, yes, the verboten coconut oil and echinacea.

I am very conservative about taking NSAIDS.  I took only half the dose (1 200mg pill) half out of curiosity and half seeking relief from the soreness.

In October I inhaled a lungful of mold and dust from a bale of wet hay.  The reaction I had back then was similar to how I felt earlier this week.  I think ABJoe's comment pertains to this "infection" after it was triggered by a plateful of avoids on Thursday and musty papers on Sunday.

Very interesting Q&A on body temperature. It doesn't answer my question, but the link between low normal body temperature and other conditions interested me:

"Chronic low body temperature is related to many syndromes and symptoms, including: allergies, apathy, chronic fatigue, "brain fog", "personal failure", depression, dizziness, hypoglycemia, lethargy, passive/aggressive syndromes, skin and joint conditions, sleep disorders, sexual dysfunction, past sexual abuse, yeast problems, porphyria, and many other poorly-defined chronic low health states."

Advil brings it down.


My wife and many others around here had the same symptoms starting 2 weeks ago, lasting about 9 or 10 days. We figured it was seasonal allergies.

I have more frequent bouts that feel like I'm fighting something off. They only last 1-3 days, which lead me to believe my immune response is operating well, but towards a lot of different things. I know that if I got into a dusty, moldy hay bale my response would be just like yours. After more than a day or two, I would load up on diamond live foods to boost vitality and allow my immune system to defeat it.

You said your temp is usually 96.8 vis 98.6.

There is a health issue related to irregular or temp not "normal" and related to the thyroid.

It's called Wilson's Syndrome.

Thank you, KimonoKat.  I just came across it this morning, while researching my question.  As I wrote earlier, it explains a lot of my life-long symptoms!

Another take on this is that when body temperature was first "discovered," 100F was considered normal.  Today even the modern 98.6F is considered high, and normal is 98.2F.  Well, if most of the population is struggling with undiagnosed and untreated hypothyroidism (perhaps due to the ADA's endorsement of fluoride and/or mercury) it'll keep getting lower.  I wonder if normal cat and dog temperatures also will be "down corrected"?

Also bear in mind that body temperature changes throughout the day. It's generally lowest when you first wake up, and higher in the afternoon when you've been active.
