Why do I usually only get a fever in the afternoon?

Its anywhere from 99 to 100 (a few times it was over 100 to 100.6-100.8)
what would cause this? it is usually only in the afternoons, in the mornings when I get up its normal,and usually in the middle of the night it is too. towards evening I will get one once in awhile, but the later the night goes on the more normal my temp becomes. anyone know what would cause this?

  • It is normal for the temperature to fluctuate during the day. As long as it is around the same everyday there is likely not a problem. One reason it goes up in the afternoon is that you have been working and so the body is burning more calories.
