Every month, for about a week, I run fever, feel fatigued, have chills, and just feel really bad. I get my days and nights mixed up. This happens every month for an entire week. I don't know if it's fibro, Lyme Disease or hormonal. I get somewhat depressed too so I'm leaning more towards hormonal but I don't know where the fever fits in. I get alot more achey and stiff as well. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

My temp goes up about 2 degrees for a few days each month. I've been told it's due to my endometriosis. When I've had the endo surgically removed, I stopped the fevers for months or years at a time.

I do think it is more hormonal since my ovaries hurt when all of this is going on. I don't have a cycle because I take the Depo Shot but I can still tell when I am supposed to start.

I actually usually have a lower then normal temperature. So when it looks like I have a slight fever, I actually have much more of one for me. Confusing, isn't it?

Sarah,

I have a lower than normal temp too. I have Hashimoto's. My temp usually runs around 97.3. My temp now is 99.7 but feels like it is higher.

SaraBear,
 Its so weird that I came to post about the same thing.My normal temp is 97.6 and for the past month or so I have had a low grade temps,every few days in the evening.Also the chills. these past 3 days I have had a temp 99.5 99.7 and 99.7 again tonight. I am post menopausal and have been on a low dose of hrt meds.They always have worked well up until a few months ago..I just do not know if its the hormones not working anymore or what.I  have no idea if a woman can get a temp because of hormonal problems!!
 I also seem to have my nghts and days mixed up...though not sure if that is because I just started a low dose of cymbalta and lowered my other sleep meds,all I know is I want to sleep all day. All  these symptoms are so confusing to me.I am pretty new to all these auto immune dieases and the other medical problems that I have. I wish I could be of more help.I am going to a pain clinic next week so hopefully they will be able to answer all my questions
 Hang in there

lostspirit,

Thank you for posting. Although I wish you didn't have this, I am happy to know that I am not the only one going through this. Let me know if you do get answers. I've been trying to figure it out for over a year now.

WOW!  I thought I was the only one who ran on the low side of the temp scale.  Infact, my temp typically runs between 96.4 and 97.2.  A fever for me is usually normal temp for anyone else.  So, if I'm running 99.0 or above, I'm really sick!  Getting a doc to understand that is hard.
 
I do feel as if your fevers may be more hormonal.  Keep a log to find a pattern.  You may be surprised.

Hey lostnomad,

I feel alot worse too when it gets up to 99.0 since my temp is basically low all the time. There is a pattern that I am noticing so far. I run fever for a week, every month, between the 20th to the end of the month.

I get something like that about every 3 months but part of my "routine" is puking for about 3 days and another 3 to recuperate.  I feel feverish when this happens.  I highly doubt if mine is hormonal as I had a complete hysterectomy 10 years ago. 
 
My stepdaughter was telling her dad that I was faking and making myself sick.  She also feels that to take Soma and get a little loopy for 15 or so minutes makes me a drug addict and that also causes me to get sick.  Long story with that one..............
 
When my neck hurts really, really bad it is hot to the touch.  I think it is inflamation.

I have a constant elevated temp as well. I usually feel a bit feverish. I run about 99.2 to 100.2 almost all the time. The doc says it is part of my Fibro or RA. There isn't anything you can really do about it from what I understand. I have had this for at least 10 years and it seems to be part of the immune system response but not an indicator of some additional problem to my usual Fibro/RA. You are not alone :)

My temp runs about 99.4-99.7 all of the time. It seems to be the norm for me, at least since I've been an adult with all of my chronic health issues.

Every so often I can wake up with a fever of 103. I feel like I have the flu and by 5:00pm it is normal. I have gone for blood tests while I have had the fever and it shows nothing. It wipes me out.The next day I have to stay in bed to recover from this. Just happy it happens maybe once every 2 months but there is no warning. My mother had the same thing. She past away last year. I think she also had fibro but she had other things wrong with her. She was 79 when she passed. Always wondered if anyone else experienced this.

Normal for me seems to be about 97.3. If I hit 99.0 I tend to be pretty sick, and anything above 100 and I'm down and out. I've never been low until all of this started, so I assumed they went together. I had about 4 months where I had a low grade fever (for me) and night sweats every day with joint pain and exhaustion and I am thankful to be now on an upswing and feeling better.
