Can hypERthyroidism cause chronic low grade fevers of about 98.7-99.6? And what else could it cause?


Likely U R right..

Excess thyroid hormone causing thyrotoxic crisis, AKA thyroid storm, can cause elevation of body temperature in excess of 104, so chronic hyperthyroidism is likely to elevate your body temperature a bit. Your body is basically revved up 24/7 thus producing extra heat, hence the temperature. Please consult doc to get treatment as untreated can cause problems for you. Good luck
