Hi, I normally post on the chronic pain forum but have recently added fibro and polymyalgia rheumatica to my list of diagnosis.
Recently I had a procedure called radio frequency ablation done on my lumbar spine. The day after the procedure my body went crazy on me. I felt feverish with chills in the morning so I went straight to bed after taking tylenol. After a long nap the tylenol wore off and the fever went up to 102.2 and I felt really bad. I got up, took more tylenol & called the doctors office. I explained to them that the area of the injection looked good with no swelling or redness. They told me to continue the tylenol and let them know if there was any signs of infection to the site. That night the fever broke and the next day I felt weak and tired but everything went back to normal in a couple of days.
My question is, does fibro cause a reaction like this after the body has been through something like this or other types of things that cause alot of stress or trama? Maybe it was the PMR that flared too because they talk about stress causing flares with this condition also.
Thanks in advance for any replies!
