I'm still running a lowish fever. I don't know what that means. I am drinking plenty of water, so I doubt it's dehydration. But I don't seem to have any other symptoms.

But there is this: unless I eat a big meal of something unhealthy (like a Chinese takeout platter of Fried Things In Sauce) I seem to get hungry -- physically hungry -- every two hours. I'm eating lots of (vegetable) protein, lots of fiber, a reasonable amount of fat: this shouldn't be happening.

Have you had your thyroid checked out lately?

Actually, not for a couple of months, and it was "stable" last time they checked. But I do have a history of low thyroid. I'll make an appointment on Monday.

ETA: forgot to say thanks! I hadn't thought of thyroid!

Mmmm. Fried Things in Sauce. Mmmm. :)

Wish I had some deep thoughts for you ... if you've got any way to check your blood sugar, that wouldn't be a bad idea. Thyroid check wouldn't hurt either. How long has the fever been going on?

The first day I noticed it [the fever] was June 26, so that was about two weeks ago. It comes and goes: some days it isn't there at all, other days it is. (I usually only check it if I feel chilly: the room is usually between 78 and 82 degrees, so "chilly" isn't natural under those circumstances!)

I am getting cravings for unhealthy food a lot: takeout Chinese, Wendy's hamburgers, etc. I don't know what to make of that.

I'm not sure what to make of that either. Maybe try taking your temperature at the same time each day (morning and evening maybe) and see if there's any pattern.
