Default Is it common for someone's body temperature to drop significantly in under 24 hours?

I had a sudden body temperature of 109 yesterday, uncontrollable chills, feeling cold, & dehydrated. I decided to not go to the hospital and just treat myself. I just drank tons of water and took some aleve. 12 hours later I'm down to 99-100. I actually feel normal now and don't feel sick at all, just a minor sore throat.

Is it common for someone's body temperature to drop significantly in a short of time? I'm a pretty healthy dude for the most part, I rarely get sick and work out regularly.

Very normal actually. I'm surprised you're still alive actually after a 109 degree fever.

109 can kill you.

I think your thermometer is broken.

I have 2 different thermometers and both read 109. The uncontrollable chills was the thing that really worried me, that never happened to me before.

It was strange though, it was only that high for a short period of time. It started going down significantly once I drank water like a mad man.

You should be in a casket right now. If you haven’t already, you should see a doctor. I don’t even know if they would believe that you survived 109 without medical intervention.

Just another made up story by OP.

He also claims his best friend's ex is a porn star, he found a dead body in the woods, that he almost had sex with some girl in front of her dad, etc.

Complete and utter make believe.

109 fever? Don't think that's possible.

But no, it may not be normal and can be a sign of a possibly fatal condition. Not saying you have a fatal condition, but I would still get it checked out because there are many cases (this flu season) when people thought they got better quickly but ended up getting a lot worse.

See in this case,

Florida family shocked after healthy 12-year-old boy dies of flu

Also this warning...

It's also common for people to be sick with flu and feel better the next day — but then feel even worse the day after. This typically occurs because of an incomplete viral killing, Gibney said.

While the immune system aims to wipe out all of the viral particles, a few might still linger. The virus, particularly the H3N2 strain, then "goes to town," taking over the body's own mechanism to copy cells and replicating quickly, bringing back the flu symptoms with a vengeance, she said.

And it is possible for patients to test negative for the flu one day and less than 24 hours later they test positive, she said. This can be due to the viral load and the sampling techniques of swabbing deep enough into the nostrils.

Still mad how I proved to you my stories were true? You even tried to expose me by posting a fake picture of me, once I posted my real pics you ran away like a bitch, you were probably distraught that I was this handsome young guy while you probably look like Carrot Top. Go back to the NBA forum and create a Spurs GT where it maxes with 20 replies with half of them being your own posts.

Former army medic here. The highest core temp I've ever seen was 109.1 F, at Fort Benning in August of 2010. We were following a road march in an ambulance and someone went down. He was incoherent and combative. When I checked his core temp on the side of the road, my handheld spat out an error message. We got him to the field hospital fast and our machine there (which has a bigger range) said his core was 109.1. Immediate ice burrito, and a frantic rush to the local hospital.

Guy not only survived, but came back for training again during the winter course. Some people never learn. I figure if we had been seconds later he would have died or suffered brain damage. Guy got lucky as hell.

I should also mention that he was an otherwise extremely fit and healthy male of 23



Makes sense, I'm in my mid 20's and pretty healthy. I also heard stories of little kids having 107-108 and surviving so it does happen. Even though I feel much better today I'm still just resting up, I usually hit the gym every Saturday morning but this morning I didn't want to risk it.

This is why people voted for healthcare for all. Use it.

If this really happened, go see a doctor. You don't live in some african jungle with no hospital.

I'm without a doubt going to a doctor soon, I haven't been to one since I was 18, but what happened to me yesterday really scared me. Never felt so physically vulnerable in my life. It was a real wake up call.

You're a bad ass.

I would've been in the hospital.
