Unhappy 104

I haven't been feeling good & have a headache. I just took my temp w/a home thermometer and it said my fever is 104. Is that too high or is the thermometer not accurate? How high is too high. Should I be worried? I just keep hearing about this flu stuff going around.

Hi, If you temp. is really 104 then you should go to the ER. It is possible the thermometer is wrong. Is it digital? My digital thermometor asways seemed to be wrong. I bought one of the glass ones, they are more accurate. If you were running a temp that high, you should feel really hot. Take some motrin and go to the ER. The doctors say children can handle fever that high better than adults. Keep me posted.

The last time I had a temperature of 104 I was diagnosed with MONO.

a temp of 104 is high and fits one of the symptoms of influenza.
