SYNVISC® (hylan g-f 20) (3-injection regimen) post-marketing experience has identified the following systemic events to occur rarely with administration: rash, hives, itching, fever, nausea, headache, dizziness, chills, muscle cramps, paresthesia, peripheral edema, malaise, respiratory difficulties, flushing and facial swelling.

The fever could possibly have been your reaction to the injection, or it could have merely been a coincidence.
