Not really, but that doesn't mean that it is not on its way up. It could get higher and actually turn into a fever.
I am always a big baby when I get over 98.something. I don't like it when my kids get that way either. I know it isn't a big deal but still. I hope you feel better!
For me it would be ... my normal temp is 96.
Hope you feel better soon.
It depends on what is normal for you. My body temp is constantly 1.2 degrees below "normal" so that temperature does leave me feeling pretty crappy. I very rarely get fevers though, a few weeks ago my temperature was 101.9 and I was hallucinating, that was pretty high for my body.
yes, i would consider it a low grade fever. My daughter is currently sick and she has a fever of 99.8 and she can barely get off the couch.
99.1 is more like you just had a sip of something warm, it's some people's 'normal'....my 'normal' is 97.0 not everyone is 98.6
A fever can be anything over the normal body temperature. The normal body temperature is 98.6 so if it goes up more or doesnt go away after taking tylenol and doing other things to help then I would call the doctor.
