I had weird stuff like that for a couple of years straight...then it dropped off, now it's coming back again but not nearly as often thankfully....it was in the early 90's and I was always feeling unwell, the doctor back then suspected I was autoimmune but nothing was rearing its head at that time to point to anything in particular.....and of course, the nastiest sore throat to go with it constantly too. For certain, it's not part of my Fibromyalgia....so that only left/leaves me with the autoimmune....and every time I'm the least bit tired still, in kicks that sore throat. I used to take tylenol "to help break the fever" and it helped for a few hours but of course it always seemed to find it's way back to me. Hopefully, yours will settle down too....

I've been having pain in my upper back along with the sore throat, so just to ease my mind I went to the doctor (primary care physician). My doctor's office has a walk-in clinic 5 days a week, 8 to 4. I didn't want to take the chance that the back pain could be my kidneys!! Fortunately, the kidneys are OK. The fever is down to 97.4 and the throat isn't as sore. I'll still take tylenol or something like that tonight.
Hope you're doing well.

I do get and most time I get very sick right after. I donâ€™t mean to scare you, but just be caution and see a doctor maybe he will do some blood tests.

Yes, I'm well, thanks for asking.
I'm glad you went to the doctor...the upper back pain has never happened to me... it was smart to have that checked out. I'm glad to hear that it wasn't anything major....like your kidneys, eech!! Forgot to mention that sometimes too, I would bet my life I had a fever (chills, etc, everything that goes with it...but no temperature rise??) Then I'de take the tylenol and puff I felt better, just like when a fever breaks, and I was good to go for another short while)....I monitored mine for ages until I got tired of seeing nothing that was ever normal or made any sense (the world of autoimmune I guess). Hope you get some rest! Take care.

I keep track of mine in a book so when I talk to my doctor about it at my next check-up I at least have something to track.
