I've been having fever chills etc for about a day and a half now. I started out taking advil, then alternating advil and tylenol. I didn't want to be taking so much so I took 2 aleve about 2 hours ago and my temp's not yet below 99.3. Is aleve not a good choice for fever?
Well, I spoke too soon! I ended up going to Express care yesterday where they dx me with a kidney infection (didn't and don;t have any symptoms). Rx's septra. had to go to ER last night, terrible RUQ pain and temp 103.4 not responsive to meds. Also couldn't keep anything down. Turns out I do have the kidney infection but also a very distended place in my colon.
Potassium was low too.
