Low-grade Fever In Fibromyalgia


What Causes Fibromyalgia Low-grade Fever

It is unclear what causes low-grade fever in fibromyalgia since there is a lack of research done on this subject. However, there are a few theories:

A response to psychological stress.

According to a 2013 study, psychological stress can trigger low-grade fever in those suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). In the study, the temperature of a CFS participant increased by 1°C after going through a stress interview. Researchers concluded that low-grade fever can be caused by psychological stress. Since many fibromyalgia patients may also suffer from CFS, if not, persistent fatigue, it is likely that stress can also contribute to low-grade fever in fibromyalgia.
