Hi all - I was wondering if anyone experiences the feeling of having a fever - I mean you feel your forehead and it feels warm, ears feel warm, you have that flushed feeling and to yourself, you feel hot - but when the thermometer comes out of your mouth, it's normal or a little below normal. I just can't understand what is going on because I could swear that I would have a 100 temp?  I was just curious to see if anyone else experiences this once in a while.  I feel like I'm crazy sometimes!
 
Thanks!

YES!! That happens to me all the time. It drives me crazy. My husband tells me I feel so hot to touch usually at night time. My temp always comes back below normal too.  I even had Strep throat a few weeks ago and swore I had a fever but it kept coming back below normal. Usually when someone is sick like Strep there is a fever. I think I am wired wrong....lol. It is relieving to know there is someone else out there with the same problem.

Booboos, I get the fever feeling when I'm in a bad flare but sometimes I do have a little temp. I also get non hormonal hotflashes and can feel the heat coming from my head til it is over. Go ahead Sherrine, have at it. devil
 
Only others think we are crazy, on here we are all normal. yeah

I used to go to the dr when I was feeling "fluish" and said I know I have a fever - but never do.  I feel a little better knowing that there are others out there with who feel it too.  I guess I might be having a "flare" when I feel this way - sort of like I have the flu - but who has the flu several times a year lasting for a few weeks at a time? 
As usual - you guys make me feel better. smilewinkgrin

My temp runs low 'normally' lol! It is usually 94.6 - 96.6, so if my temp is 98.6 - it may be normal to my dr but it is a fever for me. Check your temp before you get out of bed in the morning, just not if you are having your monthly at the time. That should give you an idea of 'your norm'. I have mentioned it to my dr. since I found out how I run. It is typical of FMS.

God bless.  Alice.

You've just described my normal day, I hate that, I have sweat dripping down from my head, I feel like I'm going to explode, it's awful.  I'm way past menapause so it's not that, plus I went through the "change" when I had my hysteromecty.  I don't know what to tell you except your not alone, I bought one of those little fans that run on a battery, i keep it in my purse, it helps a little, but I do get strange looks.  My temp normally below 98.6, it's normal for me right at 96, when I get a flare it goes up a degree or two, nothing major though.  Good luck, i'm with you. devil

My family is always telling me I'm hot to the touch.  I also flush very easily & break out in red blotches on my neck & chest.  On top of that, I have rosacea, and my cheeks are always hot & red.
 
I'm really sensitive to temperature extremes, too.  If it's hot outside, I'm burning up.  If it's cold, I can't get warm.  I'm only comfortable when it's a breezy 75 degrees with low humidity.  I keep telling my DH that we need to move to the French Riviera.

Me too!  I feel all icky and warm, check my temp and it's normal.  It happens a lot but usually goes away within a few hours.  I always chalked it up to hormones, who knows!  It does help knowing I'm not the only one.

My doc said the temp control in my hypothalamus is broken is why I'm still having hotflashes at 58. I told him nothing in my body works right and he agreed. At night the covers is on, the covers is off, the fan is on, the fan is off and I wonder why I don't sleep well. idea The only thing I'm sure about is I will never get a hotflash when I'm freezing. nono

I have been dealing with this since mid 2003. It usually happens worse in a flare, but it does happen even when I am not flaring. What I experience is a sudden rush of heat, slight nausea, and I begin to feel one ear start to burn from the inside. Within 2 minutes my ear is bright red, really hot to touch, and for whatever reason it makes me feel horrible. Sometimes my lips swell and itch. I become hot and achy and in general cruddy. I thought it might be an allergic reaction, but I couldn't figure out what I was allergic to. After the first ear gets red, the second one begins the same thing, until both are HOT and red, and I can hear my ears ringing. No one has ever paid attention to this when I ask about it at the doc.

A lot of times I will feel feverish all over, but my temp will be below normal. It's not like hot flashes, just an all over overheated feeling.
Frustrating, to say the least.

yes - mine are not hotflashes per say, but actually feeling like I have a fever - flu like feeling. My ear does hurt sometimes, too. Sorry to all who experience this, but thank you for giving me some sanity.  You know when I feel some of these things, I sometimes think I'm going nuts! turn

I feel that way too, only it is a little different for me. I will be burning up and freezing at the same time. I will be sweating, but it is a cold sweat. I will ask my husband if I am running a fever, and he says I feel normal. It is so maddening. Sometimes the only way I can feel more normal is if I take a hot bath...

Tiki. I am the same way. I am sweating but cold~
I always have a low temp and low blood pressure. But I have night sweats that are unbelievable and during the day I feel like I'm having a hot-flash. (several times) I can actually feel it move from my legs to my head and I sweat. So much that it as if i just hopped out of a shower! It is so crazy. I hate wearing clothes so the second I walk into my house I put on warm jammies, a robe and socks because I am freezing all of the time. I used to never wear a coat in the winter (hot-natured)so this is all so strange to me. The sweating/cold thing happened about 5 years ago but has been worse the past 2 years. Drives my family crazy because I HATE to run the air and they are hot. (90-100 degree summer and I was still cold) We have learned to compromise. I am always bundled up and this is nuts. I actually believe that I am running fevers and it is a part of "my" fibro. I am not looking forward to winter this year. Time for me to hibernate cause I am sure it's gonna be a bad one and I will freeze to death. lol

I almost always feel feverish, but i don't have a fever according to my thermometer. It's not menopause because I am still in puberty. My temperture doesn't go below normal though, but i have been feeling very fatuiged lately. My head also feels very hot. I also get headaches everyday.

This sounds like me.... Flushed, ache all over, would bet money that I have a fever but instead my temp is below normal.... So glad I'm not the only one! I'm starting to feel more "normal" already!

Me too.  I will feel feverish and my temp is usually in the 97-98 degree range.  I think at times it's my hormones.  I'm glad you posted this.  I was going to do a post on the low body temps.  Soft hugs to all!

Me, too. There are many times I am sure I have a fever, only to discover my temp is normal (for me under 98 degrees). There are times, like this morning, that I am exhausted, sweaty and shaky and my temp read 98.6. I have noticed that the sweating only occurs when I am really really tired. It's good to know others feel as I do. :)

Thank God! I thought i was really crazy. This is really getting on my nerves. It affects not just me, but my family. I also have the sytoms all of you have described to the T. I said something to my doctor about my face and felling feverish and no fever. She said her sister had it to. they found out she had a infection in her body. Have any of you had a doctor test you for infection. I haven't because I don't have insurace. The doctor didn't even ask for test. This happens all the time here where I live. I have other med. problems i thought is was that. Im not sure after finding this site.Please if any one has found out what this might be please let us all know. God Bless!! Everyone here

Hi, Playrena, and Welcome!!
 
Just a suggestion, check out 'Fibro 101' on the first page, second from the top. There are many wonderful items in there to get some info, one in particular is List of Fibro symptoms. Look over that list see how many might apply to you, print out the list and and mark off the ones that apply and bring this to your next dr. visit. Sometimes, drs are not too eager to 'look' at FMS. If your dr is helpful and believes in Fibro, good, if not, perhaps it is time to look for another dr. Some drs don't seem to be able to 'connect the dots', some choose not to.
 
My normal temp is very low, so when I reach 98.6, I feel terrible. Check your temp before you get out of bed in the morning, see what you are 'normally'.
 
I hope you don't have FMS, but if you do this is the place to be. We all try to help each other w/ info and compassion and some crazy fun. Hope you have a pain free day.
 
God bless.  Alice.

Hullo everyone!
I have just stumbled upon this web site while searching for the umteenth time on why I have this extreme sweating. I looked at the fibro 101 post with symptoms and it is possible I have fibromyalgia. I will check with my Dr. I have been suffering these sweats for years and they are very similar to those I experienced through menopause. Most mornings my bedding and nightwear is soaked and some nights I have to change up to 3 times. I have been reading the posts but can't find any information on how to stop these sweats which carry on throughout the whole year. Do some drugs make the condition worse? I am on 45mg MS Contin 2/d, with panadiene forte for breakthrough pain, 60 mg cymbalta, 40mg losec 2/d and have just started taking CoQ10 as well as numerous vitamins and minerals. I have belonged to another group (below) which didn't suggest fibromyalgia as a cause.
Chronic Pain Connection at the Health Central Network.
I can see I have a lot of reading to go through! Dill.

discectomy, laminectomy, degenerative disc disease, spondylolithesis, tendon trsf ankle (unsuccessful), enlarged heart, deafness, hiatus hernia with gerd,
COPD and extreme sweating.
