Six Weeks of Fever and Changes in Taste

Posted by rkanand @rkanand, Apr 22 9:13am

i am having fever low for past six weeks morning 96 and evening 99.5 feel feverish and tounge taste changes

Hi. Have you had any testing or diagnosis? Also, are you having any symptoms? I'm asking because I have been running a low grade fever 99.2-100 also for 7 days now. I have other mild symptoms such as body aches, stomach issues, headache, sore throat, low energy, etc. The main concern is a fever, I don't usually have fevers and my normal temperature is a little low.

Hi @rkanand and welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect.
Please note that I removed the lab results that you uploaded. I did this because they contained personal identifying information about you. Connect is a public site and we take your security seriously. If you would like to repost the test results, please feel free to do, but take care to remove names, patient lab numbers, the care provider and any other identifying factors.

I have also linked your post to the discussion group COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) (https://connect.mayoclinic.org/group/covid-19/) because it has been reported that fever and changes in taste could be mild symptoms of the current pandemic virus. I am sorry that you have been feeling feverish and having tongue taste changes. RK, have you been tested for the virus at all? Is there any other information that you can share with us about your symptoms? Have you spoken with your referring physician yet that ordered the lab tests?

@rkanand– Welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. Wow, a fever for 6 weeks. What does your doctor say? I agree with the questions that @lesflowers have asked. If you haven't been to the doctor yet I would suggest that you contact him ASAP. A low-grade fever running that long could indicate a number of problems. Do you have any other symptoms?

@rkanand– Is your doctor aware that you have had a fever for 6 weeks?
You might also like to meet other men with prostate cancer and see if they have had common symptoms or fevers.
