Does anyone get fever associated with their illness? of so, how long do they stick around and is there anything you recommend to make them go away faster? got a high fever tonight, and, at the moment, no other symptoms....

I get low grade fevers fairly 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?

I don't suppress fevers unless the temp is severly high for over a day. A fever is a good thing actually if you have an infection. I get low grade ones from time to time too, and had one 103 for a day last year. I think the low ones (100) are probably UC related for me.
