everyday around 4PM I get a low grade fever....My average body temp is usually 97.2 but gradually hits 98.0 around 4PM, I take 2 tylenol and within 20 minutes the fever is gone, but this happens everyday...any ideas?

98* is not a fever. Your body temp fluctuates throughout the day within a degree or so, that is normal. Honestly, I would quit taking the Tylenol, its not good for your liver, especially with Lyme.  D

I have the exact same issue.  I seems to be the body slowing fighting back.  My fever doesn't go over 99.8 and I don't take tylenol or anything to break it.  I feel like it is my body fighting.  I am on IVs so I will start a lactate ringing if it is persistance and that seems to help level out the temp.  I can feel when it is spiking, so hook up a latcate ringing and stretch back in the recliner.idea
I hope it makes you fell better that it is normal.

My temp used to be at 97.2 - 97.4 & stayed that way for many years. Many people who are infected with TBI's have lower body temps, but - this is not normal!!! Our bodies are supposed to operate at around 98.2 - 98.8.

Lower body temps are the perfect ground for viruses that many of us have to stay active. It is best to try to raise your body temp.
It's been said:LD patients can be as ill as people w/ congest. heart failure & in as much pain as post-op patients.

Hi justanother man,

Welcome to the forum! 98.6 is a normal body temperature. Anything above that, would be considered running fever. You may be feeling bad because your body is so used to running a temp around 97.2, that when it raises, it feels like you're running fever. Traveler posted good information about TBI's. You may also want to have your thyroid checked as well because hypothyroidism can cause a low body temperature in the morning.
