| | Can allergies cause a low-grade fever?
I have suffered from Allergic Rhinitis ("Hay Fever"), Chronic Sinusitis and a deviated septum for most of my life. It runs in my family. I also have lots of furry and feathery pets which I often have close contact with. Finally, the pollen count in my particular area is VERY high right now (mostly ragweed, chenopods and grass).
For years and years, I have run intermittent low-grade fevers that go from 97.4 to as high as 99.6 and once it went all the way up to 100.0. During periods where I am feeling a little "under the weather", I will sometimes take my temp and it is 99+. I have had many tests over the years, asked many doctors about this and done a lot of research on my own and the only thing I can think of is that perhaps my little fevers are allergy-induced. In fact, I had a doctor tell me that he suspected this once.
Does anyone else here get intermittent low-grade fevers when the pollen count is high or when your allergies are really bad?. Oh, I also sneeze a few times a day, my nose clogs up or drips a lot, my eyes water, nose itches, upper teeth ache sometimes and once in awhile, I blow my nose and a HUGE ball of mucous comes out (sorry, gross I know).
I'm just looking for some input from fellow alergy sufferers and appreciate any help I can get.
