Last night I felt cold and feverish, but otherwise fine, so I took my temperature and it was 100.5. This morning it was 97.9 so I was feeling good, until this afternoon when I decided to check it again and it was 100.3. I'm recovering from a kidney biopsy so I've been in bead pretty much all day. My hips, thighs, and lower back are achy, but perhaps that's just from laying in bed all day.

I've never had a lupus flare before, but I've read that a low grade fever can be an indication one is coming. Do I just monitor this, or treat it more seriously. I have a phone consult tonight with my doctor from Johns Hopkins, so I'll bring this up with him, but in the mean time is there anything I should be doing? Maybe this is just a virus? I worried about infection from the biopsy, but the fever was gone this morning so I don't think that can be it.

Thank you!
