Hi all, I have been dx with this lovely monster since 2007 but am sure I have had it for much longer. I read all your posts and sometimes put in my 2 cents. Now I have a serious question. Yesterday morning about 3am I began what I thought was my usual "bad flare".
I was pretty upset becasue I had just had one early Thursday morning and already had to take a day off of work for that one. A bad flare for me starts with restless leg or muscle twitching and then the bad chills set in. I go running for blankets, meds and lots of water because I know until I can knock myself out with xanax and muscle relaxers I will not feel better. These flares usually last from 6 to 8 hours and afterwards it's just plain weakness. I usually can get to work the day after. I had explained to my Rheumy that I get fever and chills because that's what it feels like. Like we all say "Flu symptoms". My Rheumy told me fever is not related to Fibro.
She asked if I ever take my temp and I explained I am never near a thermometer when it gets this bad. Well yesterday I was and my temp was 103.2!
I feel the same as if I had my "bad flare" but did not make it to work today. Plan on going to work tomorrow. I have had my flu shot this year. Does anyone have any thoughts about this? I am concerned now as to what is going on besides the Fibro.
Have I been having these fevers for all these years? I have an appointment with my Rheumy on the seventh of March and can't wait to get there.
Love pain all,
