Has anyone else found that when they get a typical cold they run a fever, where they never used to prior to CML treatment?
I never used to get a fever unless I was really sick with a flu or something like that. Nowadays it seems if I get the sniffles, I start to run a low to medium range fever. Last night I started to feel congested, nothing crazy, clearly a head cold (which I am so sick of but since I keep doing children's activities with my kids and their friends it seems I am always exposed to someone who is sick). By this afternoon, I'm up to 100.6, achey and chills. I can tell I am not that sick, it is just a cold and I am getting tired of running off to the ER every time I get up to 101. I know if I don't take anything I will hit 101 in a couple of hours, I can feel it. So I went ahead and took two Advil to bring it down and also because I have a sinus headache. My doctor says go to ER if it gets to 101, but I am just so tired of sitting there for hours just to get a CBC. It is emotionally, physically, and not to mention financially draining. I figure I'm going to give it a day or two and see if it stays on the lower end and burns itself out.
But to my original question does anyone else find that the most minor cold causes a fever when it never used to?
