For most people, fever is your body fighting an infection. Even people with Lupus have to rule out an infection when they get a fever before assuming it is caused by their disease. I still haven't found out "why" a person with Lupus or autoimmune diseases get low grade fevers but I would guess its from the inflammation in the body. Physical activity can cause a slight raise in temperature as well. Due to different conditions, your body is always trying to keep your temperature regulated. I usually blame autoimmune on the faulty wiring but I'm careful to make sure that nothing else is causing it.
