Autoimmune disease

Persistent fever

Hi all,
I've been getting sick a lot for over a year now. I get fevers, body aches, fatigue, and sensitivity. Sometimes it lasts for days. I've run a fever 8 out of 10 months this year. I've brought this up to my GP and gyno with no response. At this point, I'm concerned I have an autoimmune disease. I'm 34 and looking to conceive in the next year and don't want this to interfere.

(I've been tested for COVID twice, and tested negative both times.)

Has anyone experienced this?

When you say fever what is it at? I've been running a temp of 37.5-38.5 for the last two weeks but have other symptoms in line with autoimmune disease that I'm discussing with gp. Do you have any other symptoms?

Ooh, 38.5, that's high. Sorry to hear you're not feeling well either.

I've been 37.5-37.8 for over a week now. My normal baseline is 36.6-36.7.
I've been prone to infections for the past few years. A year ago, I started getting chronic neck pain, that I've been to PT for, but it's still a bit of a mystery.

The GP's diagnosis is a bacterial chest infection this time, but he suspects an underlying autoimmune disease. So, we'll see, I guess.
