Getting better when getting sick/fever?

    I've noticed that when I get some kind of flu my FMS pain (specially the allodynia) gets better.
    I still have some "normal flu pain" where you ache all over but I can distinguish it from the FMS pain.

    After a while with fever it gets better.

    Now there's four theories for that:

    - The fever works like some kind of hypertermia treatment.

    - I normally eat a loot less and only light stuff wich let my digestive system rest. (something like fasting)

    - I take antibiotics and that work in some way for some reason.

    - I take analgesics (wich normally don't work at all... but I never take it as much as I do when I'm sick)

    Any thoughts on that? Any similar experience?

    This has been a very common recently asked question, do not know the thread but perhaps someone else can link it.
