Post seizure or after heavy exercise as when running marathons, one can have a temperature that is 107 or higher. A high grade fever is spiking or cyclic. Heat stroke can also induce fevers in excess of 106 degrees. It is common medical practice to examine for stroke, heat illness and drug overdose when the temperature is 105 or above but ruling out FUO, fevers of unknown origin, and will test for a viral or bacterial infection that is causing the elevated body temperature.

No kidding a body temp of 109 is virtually unheard of. That is what made it so scary. Dont you people realize this. Why would someone lie about this. These are only warnings. No one has told you not to go to a particular resort. Why you would is beyond me. Think for a moment if your family member or yourself had this temp.. Pretty scary.

I think that it has been made clear here that someone can have a

"spike" temp.

In other words a temp that spikes for a second or so or a minute or so at a very high temp.

The OP never said anything other than this did she/he?
