Medical Doctor Q&A's
Name: Lisa

I am 44 years old and have sero-negative rheumatoid arthritis. I have been experiencing fevers for the past several months beginning between 1 and 2 p.m. And slowly increasing until the fever breaks between 4 and 5 p.m. This goes on daily for a couple of weeks and then stops for a month or so. My rheumatologist doesn't think this has anything to do with rheumatoid arthritis. I was wondering if this could be hot flashes and the beginning of perimenopause.

The symptoms you describe are not the hot flashes associated with menopause. They sound like the symptoms associated with an immunologic auto disease like rheumatoid arthritis, lupus etythematosis, colitis and other type collagen disease. Lyme disease also is a possibility. You need to find a competent doctor knowledgeable in this field.
