So I’m convinced this is more of a correlation and not necessarily causation, however I completed the Ramp Test Tuesday (4.4% increase!) and was tasting blood and had a sore throat immediately after. That night I was constantly woken up by my throat and developed a small cough. The following day I ended up leaving work early from aches and chills. I got home and measured my temperature and found I had a fever of 101 F. Had the fever all night last night and woke up today with no fever and only mild congestion.
Could this one day fever really have been a result of the Ramp Test? I’ve never had a fever for only a day and didn’t have symptoms until immediately after the test. My theory is I picked up something and the stress of the test let it do its thing and now that I’m recovered, it’s on the way out. This was probably my 5th Ramp Test and I have never had this happen before.
