I am a 19 year old female with a history of Choledocal cysts and gastroparesis. When I was younger I would occasionally get migraines, but this previous year I began to get migraine headaches and low grade fevers. The headaches could be controlled with pain medicine but the fevers were troublesome so the doctors ran every test they could think of. I went to an infectious disease specialist, normal white count, nothing to explain the contsant fevers. After a few months I lost hope and the symptoms appeared to go away. 365 + 30 days later and I am experiencing the same symptoms. My fever stays at about 99.5 and rises whenever i perform physical activities. Even just getting out of bed raises my temperature. The same tests were performed and again no clues. I feel like I am on fire everyday all day and I am terrified to get out of bed, please if anyone could lead me in a direction.

  • A temp of 99.5 is in the norrmal range. Some people just "run hotter" than others. I'm one of them. :D Try here: http://www.medterms.com/script/main/art.asp?articlekey=3425
