I get low grade fevers fairly often...my docs aren't concerned about
it because they do go away within a short time. Described as my body clock, peak functioning/lowest time functioning..etc. I guess that's the circadian rhythmn thing.
But, if you have a high fever...that might be related to UC or the fact that you're fighting off something.
How high is high?
Fevers can be eased a bit for comfort by taking Tylenol, but if it persists longer than a day or more, you should call the doc.
Your fever will drop a bit once the Tylenol takes effect, but will highten once it's worn off.
Are you sure you have no other symptoms?
Do you have an infection anywhere on your body?
