My gf is experiencing low body temp (95.5 oral) after a sunburn + chills?

Maybe inaccurate T: Most accurate way of measuring your body temp is to measure the temperature of a freshly voided urine specimen. If she was drinking a cold drink just before measuring an oral temperature then that would give a falsely low reading. ...Read more

My body has been feeling hot on the inside for 2 days then I sweat a bit and then I get chills. Took temp and it was normal, what could it be?

Many possibilities: Most likely cause for these symptoms are stress, minor hormonal changes (including those from pregnancy) and minor infections. The most serious potential cause for symptoms like these could be the beginning of bacteremia or sepsis. Would recommend seeing a doctor in person if the symptoms persist for greater than two weeks; sooner if you start developing other symptoms. ...Read more

Sleeping, awake with a little naseaua, sudden body temp increase, immediate sweats and a pending bowel movement. 3 min. Later, body temp drops, chills?

More details: It's not clear if you are referring to a recurrent issue or just a one-time occurrence. Also did you actually take your temperature or you felt chills and fever? This could all due to an episode of acute gastroenteritis but if it still persists, then more work-up would definitely be needed. ...Read more

My son is 6 has a heart rate of 140 resp 32 throwing up diareah temp 100.2 body aches chills should I take him to er?

Other symptoms: Sound like the early course of most stomach viruses. The pulse, resps and temp are all within expected limits. If he has taken in enough fluids to pee every 6 hours, is alert and able to respond well, you can monitor at home. If it persists or you get spooked by his look or pattern, take him to his regular doc during regular hours. The ER is often a poor place for a 6 yo with mild illness. ...Read more

I have sudden onset fever. Temp 101 and body aches, chills, but no cough or sore throat? Is this flu?

More info needed: While we can't diagnose this without more information, we can say that fever, body aches and chills are common symptoms of the flu. Since flu is prevalent now, we often begin flu treatment without a positive diagnosis- that is based on the symptoms and history. Antiviral treatment works best when started within 48 hours of symptom onset, so best to call the doctor as soon as flu is suspected. ...Read more

I am experiencing chills, body aches, sore throat after having braces tightened. No fever, temp is 98.7. Is this normal? About 12 hours so far

I am experiencing chills, body aches, sore throat after having braces tightened. No fever, temp is 98.7. Is this normal? About 12 hours so far

Maybe strep, flu, etc.: Ear and throat symptoms can be from cold viruses, strep throat, allergies, etc... It can be difficult to tell what the cause is. If symptoms only last 1-2 days, it was likely allergies, irritation, or a mild cold. Doctors have rapid 5-minute tests for strep, so a primary care doctor can diagnose strep throat more accurately and start antibiotics. Maybe the braces tightening was a coincidence. ...Read more

I got a cold about 6 days ago, just in the last 3 days I've had a low-grade fever, chills, body/headache, also very congested lungs. Flu?

Viral illness: It's unusual for the flu to continue on for 6 days, however everyone's different and I wonder what your overall health condition is? Someone who has medical problems at the outset is more prone to a longer, more severe illness. The best thing to do is call your doctor and try to get seen for an evaluation. With a fever, the severity has increased. A proper diagnosis will help focus the treatment. ...Read more

I've had periodic body/joint/head aches, chills, sweating and a low fever for 3 yrs now, what could this be?

Various causes: List of possibilities can be a bit scary; before reading on, keep in mind that periodic symptoms can be from unrelated seasonal viral infections. Other possibilities: infection (eg. Tb), auto-immune disease (rheumatoid arthritis, lupus), vasculitis (blood vessel inflammation), endocarditis (infection of heart valve), immune deficiency (hiv, bone marrow). Well worthwhile getting a check-up. ...Read more

Get checked.: Persistent abnormally low temps (less than 97.6) or persistent high temps (more than 99.6) are often the sign of an infection and if you have them more than 3 days, it is wise to get evaluated and see if you need treatment. Get seen today or tomorrow. Consider a reasonably priced consult on Healthtap Prime, 24/7 which is far less expensive than an urgent care visit and often a visit with your PCP ...Read more
