Fevers are part of a herx for me. Sometimes I feel like I'm burning up and my temperature is only 99. I also have a very low "normal" temperature of 95-96.
I have gotten fevers many times when starting new antibiotics. Sometimes right away and sometimes in the 3rd week. Usually they're low, but occasionally they've gone up to 103 or so.
They only time when I worry about
a fever is if I also am extremely flu-like and developing any sort of rash. Then I call my LLMD. A rash, fever and flu-like symptoms can potentially be a sign of Steven Johnson's Syndrome which is a rare but serious reaction to medications. So if there is ever a rash, let a doctor decide if it's normal, herxing, allergic or SJS.
