When I'm at my worst, usually after I have been really stressed out or did too much house work. I swell at my hands and ankles. But, I keep hearing from my Doctor that I'm the only one she has treated for Fibro. that has fevers. On those days I have to cancel all appointments and It's very hard to get out of bed because of the stifness and swelling and fevers make it worse. I just recently was placed on Avinza 30mg. I have other diseases too, but this is usually the one that breaks me. I'm 42 now. I have gained way to much weight. My depression doesn't help. Mostly, I want to know if anyone else has these fevers? How do you deal with it?
I get fevers. If I overdo it physically I can practically guarantee I will get one (I will also have to stay in bed the next day with achey joints and a sore throat and other issues). Sometimes I get them randomly and on those days I feel crappy usually. My fevers are always low grade though. Has your doctor checked your sedimentation rate? My doc used to check mine. Apparently it used to be too high but then it went down and stayed down. She said that was good. A high sed rate could mean rheumatoid arthritis instead of fibro, for one thing. Thats worse-- different disease, different treaments, etc.
Both of our daughters get unexplained low grade fevers. The youngest gets more obvious fevers in that she turns red in the face and ears not just the the later symptom of the peeling lips. She also gets flaking of the burnt skin on her cheek bones under her eyes. These incidents happen more in the evening than other times and happen with no warnings. We know they happen. It is hard to convince a doctor to look into it (it's not life threatening nor something easy to diagnose) but we are working on getting the doctor to pay attention.
