I've gotten the stomach bug on Thursday, and developed a fever from it. Slowly my fever has gone down, but hasn't completely hit normal. I was pushing myself today to go out and do things to help me function better at work tomorrow. But still, my fever it holding steady around 99.5. I'm not sure what to do, weather I should just wait it out still or call the advice line to talk to an advice nurse. I'm eating fine, my bm's are still getting back to normal, but this stinkin fever of mine is just lingering.

I've been taking it for days. I guess I'm just frustrated. My biggest worry is my Humira that I'm on, and since this is my second time getting a fever with having UC. I'm still learning how my body will fight this thing off by itself.

thanks though.

I think it wouldn't hurt to call the nurse. If you have been running a fever for a while and if you're on Humira, it might be wise to call.
