One of my doctors (not a GI; "Infectious Disease", I think) said that our temperatures go up during flares because small amounts of the naturally-occurring bacteria in our intestines begin to escape thru the inflamed walls and into the body cavity. My temps have gotten as high as 104.8 during flares.
I would just ask the GI. I get hot flashes with both Remicade and Prednisone, but I'm not sure if my actual temperature goes up.
