At what temperature are we suppose to notify the dr?  I know this information is in my brain somewhere, but it's not coming to me right now. :-)    My temp has been running higher today than my usual low grade fever.  I'm wondering if I need to be seen tomorrow or wait out the weekend and see if anything develops.

Hi Jeannie,
Well, everyone's "normal" runs a little different, but if you know for sure you have a fever, don't wait to call your doctor, ever. I'd get on the horn first thing tomorrow and just let them know.  They'll take it from there.  Are you experiencing any unusal symptoms? Anything at all out of the norm?

My dr never wants to see me unless it's over 100, and I'm one of the low-temp people who usually runs at about 2 degrees low.

Can you call the nurse and ask?
