Low temperature?

Does anyone know what it means when I keep getting low readings on my thermometer? I don't think I need a new one, since it is brand new.

My doc wanted me to keep track of my temperature for a week or so. But every other day or so it seems kind of low (97.6). I remember being told a long time ago that when you were recovering from a flu or whatever that your temperature would be low just before you got better ... this might be an urban legend. I don't know.

Anyone else have this?

Low temperature?

This may not be helpful, but here goes. I notice my temperature is tending to be low like yours. I have two thoughts about this. First, I feel like a have a slight virus-type bug right now, which I have heard can cause a lower temp. Second, I read that a low thyroid condition is sometimes associated with hysterectomy. It's not from the surgery. It is from the general health problems leading to hysterectomy. My gyn. doctor noticed a lump in my thyroid and also elevated blood pressure, neither of which I have ever had before. Low thyroid can cause high blood pressure and low body temp. I am not a doctor. I just recall seeing this somewhere, so check it out. I am 8 weeks out and have an appt. with an endocrinologist soon.

low temperature

Check with your dr. I have hypothyroidism which is under-active thyroid. This is easily dectected by a blood test and possibly an ultra-sound. The blood test is called a tsh test. Other symptoms include tiredness,foggy mind, depression, weight gain, losing hair, and sometimes thickening of the tongue.

If you must have a disorder this is a great one to have. I have lab tests every 3-6 months, depending on how I feel, and take one pill daily. It also runs in families. After I thought I was going crazy I begged my dr. for the test. I called my grandmother after being diagnosed and found out she had it, her son had, and my great-aunt had it. It really would have been nice to know ahead of time.

Low temperature?

I hear ya. I had a TVH on Oct. 22nd, I was outpatient, surgery was at 7:30am I was home by 4:30pm. The following day I felt great, no fever, temp was perfect 98.6. Two days post op I started having low back pain on the right side I felt I had a kidney infection which I've had several in the past, the pain in my back bothered me more than my tummy. Slight temp of 99.1, doc started me on antibiotic. Once agin on Tues. I had a slight fever. However, in between my temp has been low too, 97.3, 97.1, kind of wierd but everything is ok as far as I can tell. I think we are just still healing. Going back to work on Mon. Nov 3rd.

Good Luck

Low temperature?

If it's worth anything my temp in the castle was routinely low. In the 97's. The nurses and the Dr. were never concerned. Any I'm recovering from the surgery piece just fine. It is worth looking at the hypo thyroid piece. Good luck

Low temperature?

Hello sisters
I have had hypothyroidism for many years, and now it is out of control....my temps can be any where in the 96"s or the 97's noramally, when I have a 98.6 I am ussually feeling quite feverish. Doc says it is the thyroid..keep an eye on it, I am sure all the systems are in shock right now, the whole body has to "come together again"
