yogini Posted July 20, 2006 Report Share Posted July 20, 2006 Since getting POTS, I've been getting low grade fevers from time to time. This especially happens to me in he afternoons. Usually my fever would be around 99.5 or below.I've noticed for the past couple of weeks that I have had one every day for most of the day. Over the weekend I had one of 100 which is higher than before (although admittedly not high). And I've just had that BLAH feeling. I know that many of you get low grade fevers. I did a search on the forum and found my own response to someone asking about this a few months ago...LOL. But I am wondering if any has any suggestions or has gotten a better explanation from their doctors? I have had some changes lately which could be contributing - I am weaning off my atenolol and exercising a lot more and also trying to watch what I eat. Not to mention that it is HOT outside.This will probably be chalked up to "just POTS" in the end, or maybe I am just overdoing it. The fact that this is happening every day has me worried enough that I made an appointment with my GP tomorrow. I also know that low grade fever is a symptom of Lyme disease, so I am going to ask him about that -- although I was already tested 2 years ago, am functional and don't have the classic Lyme symptoms such as pain, etc. maybe it is worth further testing.-Rita Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
