MS, as far as I know, doesn't cause fever.

Jen is correct.  There is nothing about MS that would cause a fever.  You need to get this checked and treated if possible.  If there is an infection it might rev up the immune system and cause a relapse (if you have MS).  This is to be avoided at all costs.

Besides, fevers are an indication there is something wrong.  Please get it checked.

hi kimmie,
good luck with the quitting smoking - I did it in January after 35+ years.  My recent stress makes me think I would be chain smoking if I hadn't quit!  Did they give you a rx for chantix or something else?  

My stop smoking was done cold turkey but think "wow."  I quit while in the hospital from a heart attack.  

my best to you, lulu

Hi Kimmie,

Hope you get some answers when your tests come back.  And good luck with quitting smoking.  I tried the Chantix, but couldn't do it because of the nausea it caused.  Guess I'll have to go cold turkey like Lulu.

Let us know how the tests come out.

Take care,
doni
