I've had something similar for YEARS. Never anything diagnosable, and
docs wouldn't even recognize it as a fever -- when my normal is 97
degrees, then 99 is a fever, but doesn't seem out of line to book
specialists. And I also get swollen glands too, which are sometimes

At any rate, I just learned to take a fever reducer -- for me, Tylenol,
but for others, possibly aspirin or an NSAID -- which usually relieves
the yucky feeling enough for me to function. 

I noticed someone else said she had fevers and also Polyglandular
Auto-immune Syndrome -- I never connected the two, but I do have
auto-immune Thyroiditis, dunno whether the diabetes is auto-immune or
not, but clearly I have the predisposition for auto-immunity, and this
COULD be related.
