Do Anyone Have A Daily Low Grade Fever?

Do Anyone Have A Daily Low Grade Fever?

I recently discovered I have a lowe grade fever every day and no obvious cause or medical reason. I realize most people don’t take their temperature every day but I am curios to find out if this is an unnoticed part of chronic pain, fibromyalgia in particular.

A MyChronicPainTeam Member said:

I actually asked my Dr's, because I don't run a fever, but keep in mind that auto immune disease sometimes causes a low grade fever

Blood Loss From Nasty Fall Causing Extreme Thirst And Headache?

Blood Loss From Nasty Fall Causing Extreme Thirst And Headache?

Hi there. I took a nasty fall the other day that resulted in a great deal of blood loss from gashes on my forehead (blood was just dripping everywhere). I read that substantial blood loss can result in extreme thirst. Could that account for why I've been so thirsty since the fall? Also, can blood loss lead to headaches?
