Do I have fever? I feel hot and cold and I sweat some time. I took my temperature and it kept changing anywhere from 97-100 degrees.
I seem to get cold sweats, chills, coughs and slight fevers about every two -three months due to working conditions what can I do to protect myself more?
Depends on cause: If one is a healthcare worker, she can wear a mask and wash hands often (or use the sanitizing gel/foam). If in sales or marketing, a mask would scare off people, so hand sanitizer is the best one can do. If working in dusty situations where the dust/smoke/irritants in the air make one more prone to catching other respiratory infections, then wearing a mask helps as well. Annual flu shot can help. ...Read more

I've been experiencing low grade fevers of 99.6-101 F only at night for around 3 weeks accompanied by fatigue, cold chills and night sweats.
Something’s up. : While your symptoms are non-specific, they suggest that something is going on that deserves investigation. If you were only symptomatic like this for a few days, I could suggest a viral infection. But with three weeks of symptoms and significant fevers, you need an investigation into cause. ...Read more

I have some concern: Fever and night sweats for 10 days is concerning.

I have a four-month old who has a cold. He is on ammoxicillian, but has a chesty, phlemy cough. He broke out in a cold sweat w/ no fever. E.R.?
Is it normal for a 6-year old to sweat and cough, after being sick? My 6 year old was sick with bronchitis, bad fever cough, now that she is doing better, no fever, still coughing, and having cold sweats at night, is that normal should I worry?
Usually : Usually after a bout of pneumonia or bronchitis, the cough is the last symptom to disappear — occasionally taking weeks to resolve. As long as her cough is continuing to improve, then it most likely is ok. If her cough is worsening or if she is having any difficulty breathing, then you will want to contact her doctor right away. The cold sweats may or may not be concerning — is she still having fever at night and the sweats are when it breaks? If you are noticing a pattern to when she has these, you may want to take her temperature prior to the sweat to make sure she's still not having fever — that would be a reason to see her doctor right away. As long as her fever is gone and her cough is improving, I'd say you were on the right track. If you have any specific questions about her symptoms or treatment, give her doc a call. Good luck! ...Read more

Feel like throwing up as soon as I get out of bed. Hot and cold sweats. No fever yet. Weakness. As long as I'm lying down, I feel ok. What is this?
Sometimes I have sudden cold sweats/fever, dizziness, nausea, light headedness, & start to black out. It's always at work, where I stand for hours?
Postural hypotension: Sounds like your blood pressure is taking a dip after standing up for hours on end. Blood pools in your legs/feet, and not enough gets up to your brain. Can try calf squeezing exercises, marching in place, increasing your fluid intake lots and support stockings that keep the blood from pooling in the legs. By far the most important is to keep plenty hydrated — water/sports drink! ...Read more
