Doctor insights on:
Hmm. All fevers are: "systemic" ie, they involve your whole body. They are absolutely detrimental - ie they can kill a person. That said, they are useful in terms of being a piece of data, or demonstrating a pattern, that can clue a doc into what is causing the fever. FUOs - fevers of unknown origin - are a diagnostic nightmare, scary for the patient to have to deal with, and generally but not always portend bad news.See 2 more doctor answers
I have a pituitary microadenoma. It is 3mm. The endo has ordered bloodwork, but she didn't think my low grade fevers were from that. It is small, but can it be causing numerous systemic problems?
Unlikely: A small lesion like this would generally be observed. Wait on the lab work.See 1 more doctor answer
I have cough, colds, slight fever and sore throat. I was examined by the doctor and diagnosed of systemic viral infection? How come?
Could tonsil stones cause sore burning throat, could they cause other symptoms, systemic or flu ish symptoms. How to remove them safely and permanentl?
Tonsil stones: Best removal: the Hydro Pulse ™ Nasal/Sinus irrigator - www. Hydromedonline. Com comes with a special threat attachment designed for tonsil stones. The pulsing irrigation easily cleans out the crypts of the unwanted material. Also used to prevent/treat any sore throat. Since the stones may be the result of drainage from the nose/sinuses, the same unit clears that too.
Give TLC: Do nothing if the fever is under 101, except render tender love and care.
Low grade and high: Low gr. Fever is -> 99 to 101f approx. Anything more than is high fever. But in the high fever, from101 to 104, we treat as high feverand is common but more than 104 is given a terminology called hyperthermia which is a medical emergency. Fever in children and elderly, immunocompromised people like -- with diabtes, cancers, even mild fever is significant, and limit -100.4 instead of 101 to trt
Fever: Within limits, you may not want to stop the fever. It's an ancient biological response that ensures your survival -- it activates your immune system when needed! However, it's also a stressor in itself. Hydrating well is necessary, and if you're very uncomfortable tylenol (acetaminophen) can bring your fever down.See 1 more doctor answer
Tylenol (acetaminophen) if you must: Your body makes a fever for the purpose of "cooking" the offending agent out of existence. Sure, it is uncomfortable to have a fever, but it's also uncomfortable for the virus or bacterium causing your problem in the first place. If you can live with the fever, do so, and you will probably get over your infection faster.See 1 more doctor answer
Fever treatment: Fever is a body temperature of 101 degrees and over. First recourse should be to drink plenty of fluids and dress lightly. If the weather is warm, turn a fan or the ac on. Rest and relax - try not to move a lot. Should your temperature rise to 102, take Acetaminophen or Ibuprofen as well. For 103 & above, take lukewarm baths. Try ice compresses to the head and underarms and sponge body with water.
Fever: This is your body's physiologic response to some, generally inflammatory process, which resets the internal thermostat so as to allow you to increase the temperature. This is a symptom, not something you can cure by itself. If you can find the source of the fever-inducing stimulus that may be treatable.
Fever is your friend: Fever is an amazing ability of the body to try and 'fight' something -usually an infection. It actually gives us a survival advantage, and that is why it evolved. There are complex regulations of fever (as with most things in the body). The brain (preoptic area of the anterior hypothalamus) is where the thermostat is located. If you have a fever, it's good to know the cause - a doctor can help.
