Fever
      #5224 - 06/09/00 03:40 PM

I have a question. Is it possible to have a fever when your temperature reading is normal? This may sound stupid, but I do feel hot at times & am wondering if this is just anxiety. I believe it on occasion is what causes me to sweat at night. Could it just be high metabolism?

the same thing had happened to me, and i've tested negative twice at 6 and 10 weeks. probability is that it's stress (or in our heads). going for 3+ month test next week, then i'll know for sure. teh more i relax the better i feel, try doing that.

Makes sense. I feel fine, but when I start looking for symptoms, I tend to find them. Good to hear you're -ve.

anxiety can cause your temp to go up. My temperture went up 1 degree to 99.2 and ive been there for months now. I guess maybe thats my body temp and i nver realized it untill now when i started looking for symptoms.

Just to address the first questions, it's impossible to have a fever when yor body temperature is normal! The very definition of fever is an elevation of body temperature past the normal range. So, it's not possible to have a normal temperature fever!
