I have a bacterial infection, but never ran a fever. I ached all over, coughed up yellow mucus for a few days, my teeth hurt (like it does when I get sinus infections) but I didn't think anything of it since I didn't have a fever. The only reason I went in was because I could not control my asthma. Why would I not have a fever? It never went over 98.6 and was usually lower.
Welcome to the forum!
The symptoms you report need not be due to bacterial infection unless bacteria was cultured. It could have been an allergic reaction. The other possibility is tuberculosis. This does not cause a high fever. A mild viral infection can also produce similar symptoms without fever.
Hope this helps. Do let me know if there is any thing else and keep me posted. Take care!
