Stroke and low grade fever
my father suffored a Stroke 120 days ago.  He is currently recieving about 80% of his food through a tube in his stomach.  He is currently on Kumeden (blood thinner) and has a heart arrhythmia.  

Question: When he does too much (and that is not much at all) he runs a low grade fever.  Why and should I be overly concerned?  he is currently 1,000 miles away w/ my terminally ill (cancer) mother.

People who have had a stroke often have the inability to control their body temperature as well as they once did.
You should ask for a medical opinion, but there's nothing to worry about as long as the variation isn't extreme.
Low grade is OK.

how do you know if it still a low grade fever. my father in law suffered a stroke which paralyzed the right side of his body. his stroke happened more than two weeks ago. now he has fever and is experiencing chills. will his fever cause his blood pressure to move up again? we're afraid he might suffer another attack.
