I have noticed for the past few months.... on and off that I have been getting a low grade "fever" of no more than 99.5
It mostly happens towards the end of the day and night, but can sometimes be the morning or afternoon. (But not every day.)
At first I thought i was getting a flu, I would get symptoms such a warm head (inside) as well as mild chills. But I never got the flu or any cold. I have been suffering from allergies the past few months: itchy eyes, sneezy, scratchy throat and such.
I am wondering if there is a correclation between the temperature and allergies. I have had blood tests done and there seems to be no infection.
I have been to my DR and he seems to think it is nothing to worry about.
I have had a couple of blood tests in the past few months and absolutely nothing has shown up.
I have been through a series of tests in general and have also been suffering from some increased heart rate after eating at times. I don't know if I am allergic to certain foods as well... sometimes my heart rate goes up to 120 (which I have indeed seen doctors for).
There is nothing wrong with my heart... so it seems that perhaps the heart palpitations and low grade fever may be from food and/or airborne allergens. (Everything is in bloom right now!)
I guess I was just checking to see if any of this was common with allergies.
My doctor told me (haha) I am a bit of an enigma. (I know my system is a bit more sensitive than others, as he has come to see as well.)
Thank you for your info once again.... and if you have anything to add!
Yes it was helpful.
Unfortunately it is an ongoing thing.
I am not on any prescription medications at all.
I am on a supplement for neurotransmitter support.
I was on a birth control pill that affected me very poorly, which led to the heart palpitations that unfortunately still linger. I had some hormone tests done and found they are pretty messed up (likely due to the pill.)
This supplement contains Rhodiola rosea root, taurine and glycine... apparently this is supposed to help my hyperactive neurotransmitters like norepinephrine and dopamine are a bit too elevated. My seratonin levels are very low as well...which explains the wanting to sleep... and grogginess.
I was originally assuming that all this hormone stuff was affecting my temp but I did some reading and concluded that it may just be the allergies. (Can hormones affect your body temperature? I don't know)
My system in general seems to be working a bit harder just to get everything into balance....
A few possibilites for the low grade fever I suppose.....
Maybe that's why my allergies are worse this year as well.
Hello! I have a problem with low grade fever, which used to occur for 6 years in spring and summer-time (April-August), but now I have it constantly for the last two years. Quite detailed blood tests seem fine apart from elevated IgE (1000), no visible signs of allergy, but I developed lately post nasal drip. Anyone heard what may cause such symptoms and how to cure them? Thank you!
