Fever

. Posted in SYMPTOMS OF DISEASE

Inflammation that begins in the sinuses can affect your body temperature in two disparate ways. As the body reacts to the inflammation, it often raises your temperature, resulting in low-grade fever for some and high-grade fever for others. Usually, a high fever will alert you to the fact that your body is not functioning properly, and you will take the necessary steps to bring your fever under control. However, some people with chronic sinusitis run low-grade fevers every day and never recognize the change in body temperature.

Without proper treatment, the inflammatory process can become systemic when the infection moves into the bloodstream. This inflammatory response raises your body temperature as part of the reaction to bacteria in the bloodstream, and you may find that you sweat all night as a result. Some women confuse this symptom as an early sign of menopause but find that with proper treatment, this condition will disappear along with the other CAID symptoms. True menopausal night sweats will not go away through this type of treatment.
