Sorry your down Curley...I don't know what's up with the fever either. Mine starts every day around 2pm and lasts through the night. Average is around 96 - 100.2. I know the Imuran plays with the body temperature by lowering it, so I'm not so sure I'm getting an acurate reading in the first place. Always feels more like 102 degree one to me. Everyone here is running around in short sleeves and I have jeans a turtleneck and a cordoroy shirt over that plus moccosins. As I type this my hands and nose are so cold to touch they feel like they are gonna crack. Try searching HW on low temps and I think you'll be suprised at the past comments on this topic.
The sporatic fevers are not common to your symptoms? I can always tell when mine is rising because the fatigue gets soooo much worse. I cram the thermometer in my mouth and sure enough, it's up.
I sure hope you don't have infection forming in the fistula. I've been pretty lucky not to have had one (yet). If that fever shoots up to say 102 you probably need some antibiotics. You know the game, the longer you wait on this the worse it gets and I won't have you trying to "one up" me on my foamy stools this week 'ya hear!
Take a shower and lay on a heating pad if you don't want to do the meds...maybe that will bring it down a little bit for you. And just for a smile...with my "low" body temperature and itchy dry skin this time of year...
I stepped out of the shower yesterday and loaded myself down with Goldbond anti-itch lotion. Well...my stupid self forgot the stuff had methol in it and I went into racking chills for about an hour and a half! Some people just like to learn the hard way! Feel better soon okay!
