Does jet lag cause low grade fevers?

I have come back from bali to LA and it pretty bad jet lag . im up alot in the night. We have been back 3-4 days and I constantly have fevers. I have a terrible fear of vomiting if that helps...
No vomit or diarriahe and fever are sometimes so often I cant check if I have them. I dont feel physically bad from them.

Are you vomiting, do you have diarrhea?

How further apart are the fever episodes?

Jet lag is not supposed to cause fever. Usually infection does.

You should go get checked up. You migh have picked some endemic Indonesian disease, such as malaria, travellers diarrhea or other...  (+ info)

What is the best remedy for jet lag?

Surround yourself with people who will keep you awake until it's nighttime at the new destination. Just don't lounge around in bed or on the couch cause you'll end up falling asleep. Keep yourself busy so you won't have time to think about being tired.  (+ info)

Jet lag in my 9th month old baby boy?

Hi, I traveled to India 2 months back and returned to US just 2 weeks back. My 9 month old baby boy is suffering from jet lag. He sleeps throughout the day and wakes up and plays throughout the night. Its been 2 weeks and he is finding it hard to adapt. I tried waking him up in the mornings but he seems to droop off and fall. Any help on how to cope up with jet lag will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance

what is the best way to get over jet lag when traveling back from Asia to California?

If possible, see if you can start adjusting your internal time clock to PST while you're over there by going to bed earlier and getting up earlier. You'll be closer to your time zone when you land. (On my last trip to Europe, I had a few days to prepare, so on my departure date I wound up going to bed at 5 PM and got up at 1:00 AM. It really worked!)

When the plane takes off, set your watch for California time, and act accordingly, i.e., when to eat, when to sleep.

I've found great success with a homeopathic remedy called, not surprisingly, No Jet Lag, which you can get at any travel store, or online at Magellens.com.

And allow a full day of recovery when you get home. No tasks, don't go anywhere, just hang around, sleep, eat.

Good luck!  (+ info)

Really worried about jet lag and baby?

I live in the US but have been in India for about 4 months. It has been great....my 7 month old boy has been on a decent schedule...and sleeps almost through the night ///...he sleeps aound 10 pm and wakes up around 5.30 am. I am about to lave for the US and am paranoid about jet lag. US is 10.30 hours behind India...and when it's night here it's time to wake up there....I am soooo worried about reaching there andf everything becoming a big mess regarding his schedule...not to forget complete exhaustion from the journey and NO help there....I have no family in US....how and when do I adjust him to US? I dont want to start him in India because frankly I dont think I have the energy and his sleep cycle is natural and fighting it wont help. Any suggestions? Has anyone been through this? I am also sooo worried about the flight...there are 2 long flights involved both about 8 hours long. Can you imagine?

I've never experienced it but what works the best for adults is to get as much exposure to natural light in the new location.

As soon as you can, get the baby out into the sun to reset his body clock (and yours) everyday. Yes, he and you will be very tired the first couple of weeks (my heart goes out for you mom) but it will smooth out in the end.

You can start him on a changed schedule there in India as you suggest but being a mom myself, I know that you feel if he's sleeping well (finally) you don't want to mess with it.

Just remember, take deep breathes when you're stressed (he can sense that you know), be prepared on the flights, and take it all one step at a time. You'll do fine and he'll adust well when you get to the US.  (+ info)

Is there a cure for Jet Lag?

I could sure use that right now. I get about 3 hours of sleep and then i wake up. So, is there a cure?


A colleague of mine put together a page on mahalo.com called How to Overcome Jet Lag:


I think it has a lot of helpful tips, and I hope it helps you.

what is the best way to deal with jet lag for a 5 month old baby and can they get back into routine?

Let them sleep for the first day to catch up with sleep but do put the baby down for the night as close as possible to the baby's normal bed time. The following day try and resume the regular daily routine according to the new time if it changes.

Best of luck and I hope your baby adjusts very well!  (+ info)

I sleep better during the day. I'm not a vampire and I don't have jet lag. What's the deal?

It seems weird to me. Maybe someone can enlighten me. Ever since I was 15 or 16, I've just slept better or more during daylight hours. I haven't traveled to a places that more than four hours time difference. So I don't know what to think anymore.

If you have any ideas what's going on or if you have tips on how to fall asleep, I'm all ears!
Well, here's the thing. I already do that... lol

Its 'cause your nocturnal.

No but seriously just pull an all dayer.... Stay up and then at night sleep.
If that doesn't help then you may not have this thing in your eye that helps you go to sleep when it is darker.   (+ info)
