Mix of problems: You have a mix of different problems here -- some which are chronic, and others which are more acute. Both need attention. Your low grade fever may well relate to your tooth abscess -- is a dentist treating you? Antibiotics alone without dental treatment will likely not eliminate the infection or the fever. The other issues can be addressed via your primary care physician and psychiatrist. ...Read more

I'm not aware of a link between vitamin d and fever, and doubt your post-ovulation temp is true fever. ...Read more
