99.5 degrees: Temperature is not a fever . 100.5 or more is a fever, . Low functioning gallbladder sure can cause pain and make you feel awful though.

No: The inflammation of the gallbladder can cause increase in temp but this happens more acutely. A 2 month increase in temp has nothing to do with your gallbladder functioning.
