My normal temperature is around 97.5. My temperature was recently
around 98-100. It was at different times of days, different days etc and I
Ibueprofene each day when I do a Betaseron shot and the morning after the
shot so I think this often took the fever down so I didn't realize too much
was going on.
These fever fluctations have stopped now and I think the reason was a dead
tooth under a crown. It just happened that it was time for my dentist
and when I went he found the dead tooth. It had to come out and when he took
off the crown, from his comments I had the feeling that the infection just
shooting out then.
