Is it normal to have had a very unusual & scary dream once when I had a fever. (not recently) My fever was high because I didn't take a fever reducer.
Normal: Yes, it is not unusual to have unusual sleep disturbances when you are febrile. We see kids act "strange" all the time with high fevers, but when they are very young they cannot communicate that they are having these weird dreams or feelings. Don't despair, this is totally ok with fever. Remember, fever is just a symptom and not a disease. Keep yourself well hydrated (lots of fluids)! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Last time I was sick and slept I had very weird dream because my fever reducers only work for 4 hr. How do I make sure my fever is reduced all night
Longer lasting: A longer lasting fever reducer such as Alleve, which is supposed to last close to 12 hours, may be helpful. Even Ibuprofen should last 6 hours, so this may give you a little more time. Or set an alarm for 3 1/2 hours and take next dose of Tylenol if you can't use NSAID's for some reason. ...Read more
Why do I get weird dreams when I have a fever? It feels like I am hallucinating. This only happens with a 102+ temperature.

The brain is far too complicated for that. It's just what your brain does when your body temperature is high. Is it biochemical or neurophysiological? Of course it is. That's about the most that can be said. ...Read more

My 6 yr old son is having flu and fever of 38.5 degrees c. Last night he was saying strange things in his sleep, a few times. Anything serious?
My husband's TSH level is below 0.01 also he has fever since 1 1/2 months he wakes up suddenly fromsleep with high heart rate is his condition serious?
Maybe: Awakening with a feeling of palpitations is fairly common, and may result simply from a dream or a rush of adrenalin. Also, having a low TSH may not be pathologic if the active thyroid hormones are normal. However, if your husband has hyperthyroidism, and these symptoms are from that, then he has a serious condition which requires medical management. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
