Fevers and hypothroidism

I've recently been diagnosed with hypothyroidism and was prescribed 0.75 levothyroxine. My TSH has dropped from 13 to high 6s in bout two months. I have been having low grade fevers off and on. Started last year, and then went away for a few months, just within last month or so they are back. Mostly in the early evening lasting a few hours. Any suggestions of what this may be? I've a Dr's appointment wed and would like to bring it up. Thank you.

Low-grade fever is associated with Hashimoto thyroiditis

Subacute granulomatous thyroiditis: Inflammatory conditions or viral syndromes may be associated with transient hyperthyroidism followed by transient hypothyroidism (de Quervain or painful thyroiditis, subacute thyroiditis). These are often associated with fever, malaise, and a painful and tender gland.  eMedicine

Elevated fever, higher body temperature - Lupus, Graves' Disease/Hyperthyroidism, Celiac Disease/Gluten Intolerance/Irritable Bowel Syndrome

There can be many other causes for fevers , including Medicines,
Heat exhaustion, Cancers, Autoimmune diseases, allergic reactions, trauma, such as breaking a bone, intense exercise; hormonal imbalances, damage to the hypothalamus.  However viral or bacterial infections cause most fevers
medlineplus.gov

For an adult, a fever usually isn't dangerous unless it measures 103 F or higher. mayoclinic

It worth bring fever up to doctor  at Wed. appointment.

Good luck
