Hi everyone, I am new here. My name is Ellen. I am 33 years old and was diagnosed with Fibro in 2002. I am actually asking a question that is part of another post called "Do you have this symptom." There were a lot of posts and I wasn't sure if anyone would be able to read all the posts before they got to mine so I am making it a new topic because I am real concerned about it. The post for those who havn't read it is about overheating and sweating at the slightest exertion.. A lot of people replied and they too have this problem. I too have this problem except it is accompanied with a fever. I have had a low grade fever now for months and months that has nothing to do with exertion. And fevers is something I have never had before with my fibro. And then if I do anything at all expecially just taking a shower (a cold shower) I get overheated really bad, my face flushes, I feel sick and my fever spikes to over 101. I don't know why the fever would have anything to do with overheating. So I was wondering if anyone else has this happening or is something else wrong with me? I know that a lot of people with Fibro have low grade fevers but does your fever go up with the slightest exertion? Does it have anything to do with being overheated? And why do we/I overheat so bad? It's miserable for me! Thank you all for any advise you can give.

Good morning! First offiicial day of fall in one hemisphere, but if you prefer or live in the Southern Hemisphere, it's spring!

Thanks all for replying to my last post. I got another question, this time about personal care. Before I got fibromyalgia I used to shower every day, put on makeup when I'd go out and do my hair. These days, I bath mostly, wash my hair every few days and I hardly put on makeup or do my hair. It hurts to just wash my hair, but what really gets to me is how fatigued I get from a shower. You think...
I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
