QUESTION

Postby me_x_5 » Wed Aug 26, 2009 9:37 am

Hello,
To all,my update is I will finally see the nuro,Dec.21st,wich is far out but better than nothing.Im nervous and excited.
OK here is my question since 07 I have experienced mild fever that comes and goes,when it started happening I did talk to a doc. wich said oh you have back to back virus,and it will go away, but it never has, if my body feels to cold i will start feeling as though im going to get a huge flu but that never comes just mild fever feeling and body ache,just real small amounts! But it can occur whenever it wants! Has anybody experienced this or talk to a doctor and got a better explanation, or was the first doc right in telling me numerous virues.Is my imune system that messed up,hope not,lol.

Have you considered the possibility that MS and long-term bacterial infection may be linked? Ken

Maybe look in the Antibiotics forum.

Are you dianosed with MS? What you describe, to my knowledge, sounds like a sinus infection!!!

I used to constantly run a low grade fever. Now, my body temp stays lower than the normal 98.6. I've wondered if some virus or bacteria set up shop and did something to cause the low temp b/c they live better in low temp. Silly? Also, I know that many people here are afraid to run fevers, but when I do get a bug I let my fever run its course. I do so in hopes that I'm killing off a few unwanted virus/bacteria. Seems I always feel better for a while afterward.

yea i had a slightly high temp for years, not to notice really, but when i took my temp you could see it was high. have not checked it in a few years though. back to back infection?
if you want an alternative to antibiotics or antivirals, you could try selenium. i paid for the se test after supplementing 400mcg for a few weeks and my level was elevated but not in the toxicity range. now i take 200mcg every other day. if i liked brazil nuts better i would just eat 2 or 3 of those per day!

My immune system used to be so crazy that I used to feel constantly as though |I was going down with something and if a mosquito bit me the spot would swell up with an enormous blister which would burst and weep for days. I would sneeze enormously through the hayfever season.

Now, though, I just don't get colds or if I feel like I am going down with something, it is gone by the next day. If I get bitten I hardly notice it. Also I never get hayfever very much and only on very high pollen days. Although I had hardly ever taken antibiotics for anything, when I started this treatment, my reluctance quickly dissolved when I saw that something was working.

I actually went through the exact same thing as you... running low grade fever in the middle of the day, for no apparent reason, and making me feel like crap. I at first blamed it on the MS, but my doc told me I probably had one bad virus that my body would not wipe out. I finally decided it was an infection of some sort, because every time I would go on antibiotics, I would feel better for a bit. It was finally after a 2 week course of 2 different antibiotics that the fever seemed to have disappeared and has not returned. I would just keep bothering the doc. Each time I would go for an appointment, I would, of course, not be running a fever, but had to tell him that in a few hours I would have one.

f you've checked out the abx protocol i imagine? the dietary/supp stuff would apply in that case also but if abx helps you the protocol might be worthwhile looking in to.

O.K. so i went to the Doc. on friday and today my results are that all my Organ functions are fine ,but my white blood count is elevated at a 11.8, so does any body have any knowledge of what the normal range should be, so he is calling it a viral or possible inflamation , so i have to go in back 2 weeks retest so he can see it again blah blah, im still in crazy fever mode and wish everthing would just stop!! So can this help my case when i see the neuro in Dec., now that this is finally being documented!!
