How to Fake a Fever is easy, to fake a fever we will need to know how to cause the symptoms. Most important thing to remember while faking a fever is not to overdo it. Fake a fever higher than 104 F/39.5 C will get you busted. If you want to fake a really high fever then you must be sure you will not be taken to the doctor.
How to Fake a Fever fast the easy way:
To start off you will need a thermometer, it makes no difference if it a digital thermometer or one with quicksilver. Before telling anyone that you have a fever go make yourself a cup of tea. You will need the tea to create a fake fever temperature. Simply hold the thermometer against the cup of tea (don’t put it inside the cup, no need for that.). With a regular/old thermometer you simply need to hold it against the cup until you have the desired temperature, with the digital one you will need to play around a bit. I would keep it below 104 F/39.5 C!

How to Fake a Fever symptoms
Step by step explaining all of the symptoms!
It is quite simple, just run around the house or where ever you are, if you don’t want anyone to notice you are running around just tighten you muscles with small breaks in between until you start sweating a bit. Don’t do it too much and remember to breathe normally, otherwise your face will turn read and you will sweat way too much. If this is too much work just use some warm water to make fake sweat.
To make yourself shiver shouldn’t be too difficult either. No one really notices that someone is shivering unless they are sitting but naked on a block of ice. You should be able to create some fake shivers just by tightening your arm muscles very hard for some time. If you cant do that there is not much else to do but to get some ice and hide it under you clothes.
Fake Pain / Fake Headache
Fake having pain when you move your head or stand up, even when you turn around in bed. Always remember to make no sudden moves because it will make you head hurt. If you make one by accident tighten the muscles in your face and don’t make a move for a few seconds. That should make you look like you really have a headache.
Fake a Fever Temperature
To fake fever temperature on a thermometer is a bit more tricky, especially if someone might be there to bust you doing something weird with the thermometer. Easiest way to fake a fever on the thermometer is to make sure you have something hot close to you. Simply hold the thermometer close to the object and look at the temperature. Never let it get too high because u might break the thermometer or overdo it. If you are worried of getting busted doing that then make yourself some tea as described in the opening paragraph of how to fake a fever. Hold the thermometer against you tea or close to it to get the desired temperature.
Faking a Muscle Ache
Thiswill be the easiest part. You will only have to fake having pain when you lift something heavy of do something that requires some muscle power. You should still be able to do everything, just have to complain that your muscles hurt while doing it. Don’t forget that all your muscles hurt!
Fake Loss of Appetite
Even easier, faking loss of appetite. Don’t eat too much, always question yourself if you really want to eat something when someone offers you to eat something. Reject food when they do so. You should sometimes try to eat some of the food but after a few bites say that you are not hungry.
Because weakness, chills and loss of appetite are symptoms of dehydration we wont have to fake much more to get this one. Most important is to drink a lot, and that’s about it! More information on fake being dehydrated!
Should be already accomplished with the above symptoms. Just fake being lazy and always make a problem out of it if someone asks you to do something.
