Fake forehead fever

This has been going on for almost 2 years, it started with fatigue and upset stomach- thought I was pregnant. Been to doctors ever since. My white blood count is always elevated and I'm on thyroid med, testosterone pellets, b12 shots and vitamin d pills. I still have the fatigue, lack of appetite but weight won't go down, my stomach is always I would say bloated and the most uncommon of all is my fake forehead fever, it's there 95 percent of the time. I can feel the heat and a thermometer will say anywhere from 99 to 103 but orally I'm normal.

Hello and welcome to the forum.  Sorry  you are having these difficulties.  When is the last time you've had a full physical? When you say internal temp, do you mean your mouth or rectal? A forehead (temporal) scanner is usually 0.5°F (0.3°C) to 1°F (0.6°C) lower than an oral temperature.  That your numbers are so off base makes me wonder if your thermometer is working properly.
