Abstract: We have been hearing for centuries that ‘fever is not a disease but a symptom’. Physicians say that fever is a symptom of diseases like flu to cancer. The conservative fever definition, diagnosis, and treatments are based on fever as a symptom. All the studies related to fever as a symptom of a disease have been done without knowing the Purpose of the temperature of fever is. Without knowing the Purpose of the temperature of fever, how can fever included in the symptom definition? Temperature between 38o to 41o centigrade can be symptom of a disease?
Most of the diseases may not have a fever. Sometimes it disappears. Then, is fever a symptom of which disease?
Symptom Definition is the only parameter necessary for a Symptom. As with any or all other definitions, symptom definition should describe the symptom scientifically. If it cannot describe clearly, there is no use of a symptom definition. A symptom is a departure from normal function or feeling which is noticed only by a patient, indicating the presence of disease or abnormality. One cannot be understood directly the temperature is elevated in the hypothalamus. A mechanical device is necessary to measure elevated temperature in the hypothalamus. In symptom definition, fever definition can’t be found. The elevation of body temperature is not included in symptom definition. Different cause of diseases never shows the same symptoms.
Different causes of diseases like virus, bacteria, fungi, venom, horror scene, horror dream,... never shows the same symptoms. Its actions are different and sometimes opposite. No similarities can be seen between their actions. Elevated temperature or increased temperature never make fever or symptoms of fever. It may create hyperthermia.
None of the diseases or causes of diseases require fever as its symptom. If the mosquito bites its virus, bacteria, venom gets deposited in the body as a result according to nature and strength of Viruses, bacteria, venom symptoms like itching, pain, and signals like colour change, inflammation may occur.
we can see the symptoms, Signals, and indications of the virus, bacteria, the venom which multiple or spreading or damages(disease) the body before fever emerge. Patients who have flu to cancer may not have a fever.
How can we separate symptoms of the disease and symptoms of fever and symptoms of rising temperatures? In fever, both symptoms of disease and symptoms of Fever are included. Deduct symptom of disease from total symptoms, we will get symptoms of fever.
(Disease +Fever)- Disease =Fever.
(Symptoms of disease +Symptoms of Fever)- Symptoms of disease =Symptoms of Fever (bitter taste, body pain, fatigue to mind and body, reduced appetite, reduced motion and indigestion, internal and external discomfort,…)
Like that we can separate signs, signals, and actions of both fever and disease.
(Signals of disease +Signals of Fever) - Signals of disease =Signals of Fever(high temperature, shivering, unconscious,....)
(Signs of disease +Signs of Fever) - Signs of disease =Signs of Fever.
(Actions of disease +Actions of Fever) - Actions of disease =Actions of Fever. In fever does not show any actions of temperature rise.
How can we prove the fever is not a symptom.
The fever is not symptom when examined in various directions. In fever, both symptoms of disease and symptoms of fever are included. Deduct symptom of disease from total symptoms, we will get symptoms of fever. we can separate signs, signals, and actions of both fever and disease and rising temperature.
Temperature between 38 degrees and 41 degrees cannot be a symptom of any of the diseases. A different cause of diseases like virus, bacteria, fungi, venom, horror scene, and horror dream never shows the same symptoms. Fever has never been scientifically proved as a symptom of a disease. Fever has the properties of adaptation.
If we ask any type of question-related to fever by assuming that the fever is not a symptom we will get a clear answer. If we avoid or evade from this we will never get a proper answer to even a single question.
Biography : A practicing physician in the field of healthcare in the state of Kerala in India for the last 31years and very much interested in basic research. My interest is spread across the fever, inflammation and back pain. I am a writer. I already printed and published nine books on these subjects. I wrote hundreds of articles in various magazines. After scientific studies, we have developed 8000 affirmative cross checking questions. It can explain all queries related to fever.
