Pain so bad, spiked fever?

Has anyone's pain gotten so debilitating that it has made their body go into like a 'shock'?
My pain was so incredibly high yesterday, my body spiked a fever...and it wasnt until I got the pain down (after 16 hours of trying different combinations) did I get the pain lowered, and my fever went away.
The best way I could compare it to is with a migraine..with my migraines, the pain gets so intense it sends me vomiting. It was just like that with this pain yesterday. It woke me up at 4am and nothing was shaking it.

I left a message with my doctor today. I am a lot better today, still feeling the after effects from it. But not nearly as bad as yesterday.

Wondering if anyone else had anything like this.




  • Alina~Hi,I see this is a couple months old,but wth? I too spike fevers whenever my pain increases.My nurse said when I mentioned it to her that it happens to many people,though I've never actually talked to anyone about it to know if this is true.It's true in my case.

    Have you ever tried TOPOMAX(or topamax,not sure on the spelling) for migraine prevention? I'm prescribed one 50mg three times a day as a migraine/pain prevention.I only take one at bedtime because of the side effects(stupidity--they are nicknamed dopamax),but since I have been taking it my migraines are far and few between,well worth it.
  • why your fever decreases when your pain decreases. If you use anything with paracetamol, ibuprofen or a few others, these will bring down a fever.
    You should really check with your doctor that you don't have an infection somewhere as often the drugs we take will mask the symptoms of infection and keep a fever down.
  • Hi, I have suffered from migraines since my late teens.I am 52 now,so know a little bit about them.Doc just started me on a new med.I can't take Topamax or Maxalt, or Verapamil(blood pressure med to control migraines)Sooooo, he gave me Midrin.It really helps a lot.I take the Midrin,5mg xanax,and a phenergan.I usually use ice pack on my head too.You can make them easy.1 part rubbing alcohol to 3 parts water, I seal mine with a vaccumn bag machine,no leaks, good luck with migraines and back pain.Hope this helps.
