I have MS,Diabetes(on pills),High Blood Pressure,Anemia,Periodontal Disease,Chronic Paiin & PTSD. I'm also on many medications as expected with the illnesses. Well, for two months I've had a low grade fever I can not get rid of. My doctor gave me an antibiotic an it went away for a month. A few weeks later it came back and the doctor has me going to an infectious disease doctor. My blood work came back with the white blood cells slightly elevated, obgyn tests were fine, urine test came back fine an so did my chest exray. I don't have problems breathin, no skin infection, so what the heck can be doing this?
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
Actually all the problems you have—diabetes, stress, anemia, periodontal disease can cause low grade fever. Hence correcting these problems will improve body temperature. Drink plenty of fluids, eat healthy, exercise regularly, correct anemia with treatment, and consult your dentist and diabetologist. Take care!
Ive had a fever for a long time too... and I had periodontal disease...except my blood pressure is low thats common for me..I go to the dentist always and just had my teeth cleaned last week..and im telling you that that pain your feeling I know it..its part of me now..I was eating some soup the other day and my crown came out my tooth underneath the crown decayed...and my face has been swollen and numb and pain all over my body for the past ten months..no xray picked up this infection that is running through my body not even my dentist last week. but when I almost swallowed it, pressure and pain released from my brain...no doctor detected this and my gums dont bleed my breath dont stink,and i didnt understand as much as i floss and brush that what caused all my teeth to fall out and get P.D.my face is still swollen i been to every doctor and no one would have thought it was that..and you know my doc refused me a blood and urine test the other day..how can i cure an infection that i had for 10 months if my doctor refuse test i need, Cause the other doctors i've been to dont take blood test. what can i do? i hope you feel better and its the little things no one notice until its to late.
