My mother was diagnosed with overlap syndrome but still she has low grade fever ranges from 36.7 to 37.4 c after treatment. What should we do?
Overlap not helpful: Hi Ruby 290. 'Overlap Syndrome' is a Rheumatologists way of saying your mother has signs/symptoms of two of their favored diagnoses...which probably actually means her condition hasn't been well studied. I would be sure you are working with an academic person at a tertiary center, someone who has time and compassion to begin and supervise a disease modifying program (DMARD) for her. ...Read more

How much?: Need to know how much fever, and how do you feel. Do you have any risk factors for other illnesses?

My 7yr old daughter have stomach gas and stomach pain, loose stool and bloated have low grade fever. What remedies can I give to her? Thanks
Diet changes: There really are no good medicines for a 7 year old who is dealing with a bout of stomach flu. This is a virus that the body needs to deal with. Diet should be dairy free for a few days, and focus on plenty of water, very dilute juice, complex carbohydrates and easy to digest proteins such as eggs, white meats, peanut butter. It will also help to give a probiotic for about a week until better ...Read more

May not need to...: The most common cause of elevated body temperature/fever is viral illness/infection. It is a defense mechanism your body is mounting in attempt to rid off the infection quicker--heat speeds up chemical reaction, thus body can work a bit quicker. If it is mild and not causing symptoms for you, leave it alone. If too high, motrin/tylenol as needed for comfort. Consult doc if much worse. Good luck. ...Read more

MAY BE FOR SOME:
It may be normal for some but not most. For most normal temp is 98.4 and if it is 99.4to99.8 all the time one has to find what is the cause of it. There are many conditions which can cause persistent low grade temperature and if all is ruled out than one can say it is normal temp for that person
