I've gotten fevers over 102.5 on remicade and never had to go to the E.R or anything.
Curious why he would want to admit me on a temp over 101 while on Methotrexate.

I get low grade fevers ALL the time.. I don't want to worry.

I think this is a question you should be asking your doc. JMHO

I agree ask your doc. I can guess, but my doc wants me to go to the ER anytime that I get a fever of 102 or above. He wants me to call him when I go above 100, but I forget to check it everyday (I got a talking too last time because I was showing up to my weekly appoints with fevers above 100).
