I took my temp today and it was 37.6C (99.7F). I was quite surprised, as I haven't felt at all feverish since starting the LDN and was expecting something a bit lower. The actual temperature is really not unusual for me, as I've had a fever (37.2 to 37.8C) 24/7 for some 6.5 years now. Prednisone (and/or the astragalus which I started taking in August) seems to have permanently lowered it a bit and relieved a lot of the symptoms of the feverishness, but I'm still surprised that I can have a temperature of 37.6C and not feel very ill and be shivering in the bed under a blanket and wrapped in several layers of clothing, like I used to be a lot of the time.
