I am having some problems that I hope someone out there can relate to. I am having recurrent uterine,fallopian tube, etc. infections. My doctor keeps giving me rounds of antibiotics, but the infection keeps coming back. I am on my second infection in a month. I have other symptoms as well. I have a general feeling of illness, headache, nausea, pelvic pressure, cramping, intense pain on the right side of my abdomen, and back pain. All these symptoms have been going on for about two months (before I went to the doctor with this latest round of infection). These symptoms, plus vaginal pain, is what sent me to the doctor. The other very strange thing that my doctor can find no cause of is my temperature. When I am well, my temp. is usually about 97.7. Since the first part of July is has been staying between 95.8-96.5. I have checked it with two different thermomters AND checked my children's temps with them (they have temps. about 98 each). I even changed the batteries; still the same temperature range. Today I woke up feeling very chilled, and my face feels very flushed. I took my temperature, and it was 98.4. In the last few hours it's gone to 98.8. Is this a "fever"? Is it from my infection? What do I do? ANY suggestions would be very appreciated!
