However, it is most commonly a symptom that there is something else going on. Oftentimes the fever will indicate that the patient has some type of infection. If you have a low-grade fever, it is not really a cause for concern. A fever may be helping your body to develop more immune cells. Sometimes when you have a fever you may have additional symptoms which can include: sweating, shivering, body aches, loss of appetite, weakness, or a headache. Some additional symptoms which can accompany a fever but which can indicate a more serious problem can include: throat swelling; an unusual rash; stiff neck; confusion, vomiting; chest pain; extreme lethargy; or seizures. Our doctor will be able to quickly and accurately diagnose your situation and provide you with the additional treatment that is necessary.
