Why do I feel feverish after sleepless night?

Whenever I haven't slept very well (i.e. very much), I spend the next day feeling somewhat feverish.

There isn't always a real fever (though I do have somewhat low-ish body temperature to begin with, so what reads as normal may be high to me), but I almost always feel feverish after a bad night's sleep. One time in college, my dorm neighbour kept me up at night and the dorm nurse almost sent me to the hospital for my fever (not because it was life-threateningly high, but because that was the time the swine flu went around), until I told her this was pretty normal for me. But... is it normal?
Last night, I didn't sleep very well either, and when I went to my doctor's appointment this morning for unrelated issues, they took my blood pressure and it was 130 to something. Usually, my blood pressure is around 95 to 65. Could this have something to do with it?
I know YANMD, but this issue doesn't seem big enough to have a doctor make a weird face at me for asking.
