6. I think I've had it and didn't know

My "normal" temperature is 36 C. For most people it's 37 so that's what they use for the base line. I'm old and going through male menopause which means brutal hot flashes that leave me feeling crappy and exhausted.

For about 3 weeks my temperature was 37, I felt feverish and just plain crappy but was able to stumble through work, where I had my temperature taken and the usual battery of questions. I was also getting daily hot flashes.

Since I didn't know for sure what was making me feel crappy and I wasn't officially "running a fever" I assumed I was OK. Then they added a "do you feel feverish" question but by that time I was feeling better.

I can't go get tested for the usual perverse logic of if I'm not tested, I haven't had it, but if I test positive for having had it and gotten over it, I can't work.
