:So I'm not the only one having this? I was diagnosed over two years ago with Hashimoto's.

Ever since I first exhibited symptoms, I have also had an ongoing fever. I, like you, go from 97.4 to 99.8 almost everyday. My
endo says it's not related, my internist has run all kidns of tests, my ob/gyn wanted to start me
on prozac! I'm miserable. It's just enought fever to make me feel awful and rundown. Yet
my TSH levels are all well within the normal range. I have no answers, just empathy.


Has anyone ever heard of having a low body temp in the morning (97.2 - 98.2) and then in afternoon and evening having a low grade fever (99.2 - 100)? This has been happening every day for a few months. No comment from the doctors I have seen. I am on synthroid. I have had to have my dosage reduced twice in the past 4 months. Prior to this I was on the same dosage for 12 years.
: Also, I am wondering about the possibility of either carotidynia or vasculitis. A week after my first synthroid reduction, I woke up to severe swelling (eyes were slits) and a very swollen carotid artery that aches. It gets rather large at times and resembles a sggy or deflated balloon at times.

: Has ANYONE heard of any of these symptoms? I do have nodules again. (Have had thyroid surgery twice). Any info would be helpful. The endo says "see a Neuro". The Neuro says "see an endo". They both overlook the swollen carotids and the daily PM fevers.

: Please Help!!
: Thanks,
: T. Lynn
