    Take care.. antibiotics are only good for bacterial things and not virally caused stuff and will damage protective gut flora, so it could be making things worst (damage the gut too much and you may end up with all the food intollerances coming in).

    I have always had temperature issues throughout my 11 years with this illness. But not often do I have one at the doctors office, I assume it is because of the physical effort, that generally makes my temperature drop.
    Apparently I was the same as a child. According to mum I'd have 40+ temps all night & be fine the next morning.

    I run low grade fevers (37.3+) 4 or more times a day as well as subnormal temperatures (34-35). I also get high fevers over 38 for no apparent reason.
    Interesting thread ;)

    That sounds similar to me. onset sever flu and fevers. Large gap in time betwwen attacks. at first evey 8 to 12 weeks ) Then milder fevers. now happening much more frequently. progressing to just sweating type flu attacks weekly. I can tell you this, when i was at my worst, living a life mostly lying down and i caught chicken pox, i still had a real high fever ? same when i caught influenza A after some recovery was starting to slowly happen to me. very high fever. Fevers dont seem to have been affected at all. Infact i think the opposite is true, early on it seemed as if i was actually more prone to them

    One method is to take T3 but not everybody tolerates it. LDN raised it a bit for me as well, and I bet most somewhat effective treatments like MAF will do that due to a small increase in inflammatory action (which will come with the cost of slightly increased inflammatory pain). Also a lot of painkillers reduce the basal temp as a side effect, so avoid if you can. Exercise will elevate it at least for a while, for those who cannto exercise at all maybe Sauna could help. Anythigt that stimulates your circulatory system can raise your basal termp slightly, such as consuming spicy foods or body stimulants such as caffeine/guarana/mate/taurine (again if you can tolerate them). I think part of this disorder for many is a sluggish lymphatic system (also partially caused by the low basal temp), I have tried heat on the local spots but switched to icing swollen/tender lymph nodes with better (local) success and instead get the lymhpatic system going via all the other methods described above. Another option could be massage. cheers
