Anyone have low body temp?

So my temp usually runs between..95.5 and when I'm at 98.6 I feel like I'm on fire...what to do...I feel like I have a fever but it really isn't in doctor terms.

Re: Anyone have low body temp?

How long have you been seeing your family doctor? I usually run low too and my doctor knows this... I would call the office to be on the safe side.

Re: Anyone have low body temp?

Mine is normally that low. LOL I just posted that it was 96.7 My normal daytime temp runs about 97.ish So, yes when I had my temp last night I felt like I was on fire too. Once I hit 98.6 I feel really hot! I kept wondering about that too....If 101 is when I should call the doctor then what if I run a degree cooler normally? Let us know what your doctor says.

Re: Anyone have low body temp?

So my family Dr. said that I should still go by the 100-101 before I really consider it a fever.

He understands that my normal is low and that's why when its in the 98-99 range I fell so warm but wouldn't be concerned until in was a consistent 101 for a few reads.

Re: Anyone have low body temp?

ladysteelerfan, thanks for the info! I too have a usual low temperature at 97.5. I also suffer from hypothyrodism (low thyroid) which supposedly contributes to the low temp.

I've always wondered about what to consider a fever because of this and now I know! Thanks again!!

A new thermometer might be in order as at 2 degrees below normal body temperature Hypothermia sets in and one would not be functioning. At all.

Thanks for the info...but it seems that this is a chronic issue for most of us due to other health issues.

And I know in my case my ear thermometer and my electronic mouth are brand new. I do adjust for the difference if I feel fever like and use both.

Hypothermia is a decrease in body temperature to 94° F or lower and most of the post if you re-read are in the 96° range so I think we are all functioning just fine.

I was warned by my family Dr. that if I ever have a consistent temp of 95° for more than 3 reads after eating and drinking some thing that I should be seek medical attention.

Re: Anyone have low body temp?

Hi Ladies!
I just knew that i'd find some information here.

I had my BSO in 2008. Struggled with bio-idenicals not absorbing until i found a compounding pharmacy that makes my sublingual drops. My estrogen level has remained steady in the 50 range.

I've noticed over the last 6 months that my temperature is chronically low. Sometimes as low as 95.5. Rarely does it ever get up to 97.0.

I'll start taking my temp more regularly and start a journal but i'm wondering if the hormones can create this problem and how it affects my body? Is it harmful to run such a low temp chronically?

I worry i have thyroid issues, which would explain the frustrations with losing weight. For months I ate a very controlled diet, went running up to 9 miles a week, played volleyball two nights a week and threw in walking and yoga, only to see the scale stagnate. I have lost about 10 pounds but it's taken a very rigourous routine to accomplish this.

I also have sweats (not really the same as hot flashes) and fatigue.

Any ideas?
