Is tiredness with low temperature normal after viral encephalitis?
I am just recovering from a significant bout of viral encephalitis. i am also on Neurontin and Plavix following discovery that i have had multiple mild strokes in my right temporal lobe caused by an atrial septal aneurysm. During the encephalitis I fevered at night for 16 days but in the morning my body temp varied from 94-97. since I stopped with the fevers (I went through a bout of antibiotics in case there was some tic disease, as well as Prednisone) my temperature is still consistently low - this morning 93.9 - currently 95.5. rarely does it go over 97.5 I also am feeling pretty wiped out. any thoughts?
hello friend good to see you have recovered from a prolonged illness The thought I have is that your nutritional status would be low - because of he illness and because you may not have been fed as well as usual in view of your encephalitis. I suggest looking up at the nutritional status,and taking care of your diet in addition to your regular medicines and physiotherapy
When your metabolism is low (due to low levels of nutrition) the body temperature is going to be low as well.
Best of luck Dr Mittal
