What's the highest temperature you've ever had?

I have the flu and set a personal record last night of 104.6. I called a nurses hotline and she informed me if the aspirin I took didnt bring the fever down within the hour I should go to the ER. Luckily it brought it down to 102.5, but still it was a little scary.

I'm not sure but I had a temperature of 103F when I went to the doctor in junior high. Funny thing was I felt much better at that time than an hour or so earlier when I was delivering newspapers with blurry vision and peddling my bicycle in a slow, wobbly manner.

He didn't say there wasn't severe brain damage.

When I was 8 years old, I had a temperature of nearly 106. I was hospitalized and my parents told me years later that I almost died. I have a vivid memory of being placed in an ice bath and screaming at the top of my lungs. Don't really remember anything else about it.

I assume that is where your username came from.

Was sloshed and misunderstood the header. I was thinking the question meant hottest heat I've been in.

I had no idea how high I had when I was 3 years old - I had bacterial meningitis and I guess it was my highest temperature that time.

I don't get sick. I haven't had so much as a normal "cold" in more than 10 years.

Re: What's the highest temperature you've ever had?

Well, not counting what may have been going on when I was a baby or when I was too young to remember, I remember having the flu about 15 years ago when my temp. hit 104. There was a whole week when it didn't go below 102. Horrible. That said, I haven't had the flu or anything approaching that kind of sickness in over 10 years. I get the occasional cold, but that's it. And, no, I NEVER get the flu shot.
