Low-grade Fever In Fibromyalgia

fibromyalgia low-grade fever

A person who is suffering from fibromyalgia can also suffer from low-grade fever at any time. There is no specific evidence that links the two, however, there is a good chance that fibromyalgia can trigger the onset of low-grade fever.

What is Low-grade Fever

Fever is a common medical term. It is known to occur when your body temperature is higher than normal which is 98.6° Fahrenheit or 37° Celsius. Low-grade fever, on the other hand, is a type of mild fever where the body temperature is just above normal. It can range between 98.7°F and 100.4°F or 37.5°C and 38.3°C and stays for more than 24 hours.

Low-grade fever is not dangerous but it can be uncomfortable for some. There are many reasons behind low-grade fever. The most common causes of low-grade fever are infections, cold or flu. However, there are other less common causes of persistent low-grade fever. Low-grade fever is common in those suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) and fibromyalgia.

    I frequently suffer from excessive sweating…..could this be the result of this low grade fever theory? Doctors can never find a reason…..very troublesome.
