Is fever part of anxiety?


While anxiety can cause physical symptoms such as rapid heartbeat, sweating, and shaking, fever is not typically considered a common symptom of anxiety. Fever is generally caused by an increase in body temperature due to an infection, inflammation, or other medical condition.

However, anxiety can sometimes be a side effect of a fever or an illness. It is not uncommon for people to feel anxious or stressed when they are sick, especially if they are experiencing discomfort or pain. Additionally, anxiety can weaken the immune system, making it harder for the body to fight off infections, which could potentially lead to a fever.

If you are experiencing symptoms of anxiety or a fever, it is important to talk to a healthcare provider to determine the underlying cause and receive appropriate treatment.
