Is a temp that goes from high to low  back to high fast a bad thing ?

I had a temp of 100 F about 3 and a half hours ago and then went to 97 F about an  hour ago and now it is at 101 F.

I don't understand what could be going on  this has never happened to me.

I have used four different temometers so I don't  think it is that considering two I used were fresh out the package that we bought a while ago.

Any ideas?

    Last time I had a bad flu, my temperature bounced around, too.

    But I think you're likely seeing variation in thermometers.  Stick with the same one, if you can.

    Good luck.  Take in as much fluid as you can, and stay in bed.

    It's not that big of a difference in time span you're talking about. Use a medication to lower your temp if you have one - acetaminophen or ibuprofin
