Hi everyone!

I have a question about fevers. I had my first one since the Raynaud's started. I ended up getting really sick and passed out at an urgent care and had to be taken to the ER.

 

Now that I'm feeling better, I've gotten to wonder if things like fevers are experienced differently when you have Raynaud's? I may be way off, but just wanted to see if any of you have any knowledge you can share.

 

Thanks!

Hi Andee,

 

Sorry to hear that you've been so ill and suffered a nasty fever.

 

I do get Raynaud's, but thankfully have never experienced a fever since I've had it. I did have a very unpleasant virus about eighteen months ago, which developed as painful mouth ulcers and it took me three to four weeks to feel remotely human again.  :sick:  However, I don't think that having Raynaud's made any difference to how I felt at that time.

 

I'm glad that you're feeling better now!

 

Kind regards,

amm555, I had 99*-100* fevers and Raynaud's for years until I was diagnosed. The high fevers I had were easily attributed to an ear infection, flu, or other. Hope this helps.
