Does anyone experience a low grade fever for no reason? I don't feel like I'm getting the flu or anything of that nature but Sunday evening and this evening my temperature is elevator about 2 full degrees higher than normal and not sure if its the start of something or the lupus.
Yepp! Low grade fever is actually one of the symptoms.

It's one of the symptoms I don't think I have actually. I'll think i will have a fever - i'll be freezing and everyone else will be hot, but my temperature is always normal, or even below normal, so..who knows. But it's pretty normal (: For lupus, that is, hehe.

I run a low grade fever almost all the time. My doc tells me this is my new norm and only get concerned if a run over my new norm..if that makes any sense.

I used to always run a subnormal temp due to the hoshimotos and now it runs around 99.2. Sometimes when it is hot outside it jacks up more. I think my thermostat is broken(grin).

I used to be subnormal too and hardly ever go above normal even if I was really sick. I had to fight the doctors a lot because I didn't have a fever and now that sunday it was above normal and earlier was too but monday I was at my subnormal temp threw me for a loop. Howeever I feel funky right now and can't sleep which usually isn't a good sign. Its seems as though since my gp diagnosed me I am more aware of my symptoms.
