Brief Answer: some work up, physician review and Bcomplex Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXXXX Welcome to healthcare Magic! It is for sure that it is not fever because no fever last that long. You may be feeling feverish for some other reasons like hyperthyroidism, nutritional deficiency or depression. These are myriad possibilities. You should get reviewed by a physician of your locality. Also get complete blood counts, ESR, thyroid function tests to start with. You may start OTC Complex and antioxidants combination and see the response. If deficiency is the cause then you will feel better in a week time. I hope the advise would be informative and useful for you. Take Care!

Brief Answer: may be peptic disorder, get evaluated Detailed Answer: Hi XXXX, Welcome back . The feeling of hypersensitivity in solar plexus region may be related to acid peptic disorder which is commonly associated with other problems. Better to get investigated first and then analyze after a physical clinical evaluation. I hope you will be benefitted by the advice.
