I had a blood test done this morning and a few hours later, I have come down with a fever. I was feeling unwell this morning (sore throat). Is this just a coincidence?

In brief: Probably related

If you felt unwell this am with a sore throat and had blood testing done for this, and now have a fever later in the day, the fever may represent your body's response to an infection.
