Keep record: Low grade fevers can be caused by viral syndrome or metabolic conditions among others - the most important thing would be to keep a log of daily temperatures for at least a month and take to your doc. Subjective "fever" is not as reliable as actually recorded temperatures.

The important question is what do you consider "fever". There are many people who think that you have fever if your temperature is greater than 98.6, which is incorrect. You may be normal.
