I was to my doctor yesterday because of flare up.  I am on 2 different antibiotics & colace.  I was told if I start vomiting or have fever I should go right to emergency room.  What temperature would send me to hospital that I forgot to ask.  Does anyone know that answer?

    You might have a fever for a day or two as the antibiotics are beginning to work.  But if the fever persists or becomes high (102 or over), I would go to the emergency room.

    I have high temps just under 102 for the last 2 days. Yesterday my chills were very severe. Lasted for 2 hours

    Finally lessened & were back to normal last night. Just got my gastrp dr to prescribe a stronger antibiotic.

    Anyone has had similar symptons??

    Thanks.
