| | I never run a fever
It seems that no matter how sick I am, my temperature is never high enough to be considered a "clinical fever." In fact, even when I'm ill, rarely is it not under the normal 98.6. Usually, when I check my temp, on average it runs about 1 degree or so under the "norm."
I had explained this to an acute care doc once and he argued with me that EVERYONE's temp ends up averaging out to 98.6 and that I was just not taking it regularly enough to see that. Because I didn't have what he considered a fever, he didn't think I was ill... until the labs came back that said I was.
Does anyone else have this issue and if so, do you know why?
