Low Temperature

Good morning girls. This is my first post, but I have been reading the info on this site and it is great! I am having a TAH Mar 28. This is happening very quick and I am a little freaked out. I went to the Dr's the end of Jan because of 3 weeks of heavy bleeding, I was at the gyno's in less then a week, was scheduled of a D & C the middle of Feb, and was told after surgery by my Dr I was scheduled for an urgent Hysterectomy and here I am. It was a bit of a shock because I was ready to be told I have a problem based on what my Gyno told me before the D & C, but I thought we would be doing the whole route and maybe end up at a TAH, but it seems "Do not pass Go, go directly to Jail" One side of my uterus is completely blocked and I have huge fibroids and well as a thicken and very large uterus. I have had 2 shots of Lupron Depot 3.25 and go for my last one tomorrow. Just to make my life interesting, I also have Fibromialga. And just to make sure I have enough fun, DH is going for a second spinal fusion on Monday. We have family and friends helping out with the logistics of all this.. thank god!

So, the reason I am posting is has any one else suffered from a low body temp? Yesterday I woke up feeling beyond terrible. I suffer from migraines 3-4 day a week right now. When I finally took my temperature, it was 96.6! No wonder I feel like I have been run over! Is this common? I am seeing my Fam Dr. tomorrow morning and my Gyno tomorrow afternoon. Any input or reassurance would be great!

(((Conner))), temps can vary from day to day but you should know what's normal for you. If your temp isn't normal for you , you should definately mention it to your dr. It could be nothing or something that needs attention. Since you still have a week before your surgery, it probably should be ok by then (if you call your dr now).
My own hyst last July happened about as fast as yours did. I went in for a routine pap and polyps were found. I had the polypectomy and D&C - they found precancerous tumors, hyst scheduled asap. It did turn out benign thank heavens.. Best wishes for yours too, I'm sure everything will work out for you. I'll keep you in my prayers,

Fibromyalgia and low temp here too

Hi there,

I also have Fibromyalgia! Life does get interesting for us lucky gals, and I do have a low temp often. This seems to be very common, like another post here, when I run 98.6 I'm miserable. My b/p is also low, when it looks "normal" I feel icky. (I'm just having fun being a medical mystery, lol).

Just try to go with the action, one step at a time, and let others help as much as you can. Hang in there hon, you'll get through this and look back on it soon. My hyst is April 1, it's jitters time for both of us!

Good luck to you, I'll be saying a prayer for you and yours. Good luck to your hubby too!

My temps have always run low - same for us: 98.6 then we're sick. I don't think it's a problem necessarily. Like the others have said, your temps can vary, mine is usually higher in the evening. If a low temp is unusual for you, then I'd mention it to your doctor. Unlike you, my bp is usually high.

I also suffer from migraines - usually 2 per week. Thank God for Imitrex!!!! I've had migraines for over 20 years, and before Imitrex, I would literally be in a dark room for 2-3 days sicker than a dog!! I did this at least once every week!! Now, I can usually get them stopped before they really get going.

Hi Conner,

I was wondering how long ago you were diagnosed with Fibromyalgia? This may be the cause of the low temp and migraines. I normally have a temp of 96-97ish and when my docs were looking into joint/muscle pain, fatigue problems, they looked for Fibromyalgia symptoms. Low temp is one of the things my Rhuematologist (sp?) doc mentioned. Also a friend that has more severe FMS does suffer from migraines. I would talk to your doc that deals with the FMS about these symptoms you are having. Maybe even talk to a Rheumatologist if it is your Family doc that is treating you know. Rheumys are usually the specialist that treat FMS.

It turns out that I have Psoratic Arthritis with a possibility of mild FMS. The Arthritis meds make life much easier and sleep meds we tried for FMS never did much for me. I still don't sleep for more then 4 hours in a row, but that is how it has always been. The other meds help my joints and that was my biggest complaint so I am happy with just the Arthritis meds for now. My fibroids and possible Adeno is another story and that is why I am scheduled for the LAVH in May. Those symptoms just get worse, not better.

I found a link that has a little info about FMS and low temp. May be helpfull to you. http://www.co-cure.org/drt8.htm I also remember one of the Sisters mentioning she has FMS also. You might want to do a search for it and see if she has any insight for you. Take care and you are in my thoughts and prayers.

Thanks for the replies girls.. sometimes this all gets too much for me..

I was diagnosed by a rhumetoligist(SP?) last year. I have had migraines for the last 4 years, they got more frequent and painful after I suffered a major neck injury in 2000. If the migraine is not too bad, Viox or toradol with demerol pills do ok. When it is bad I have to go to emerg for an infusion of stemitol & demerol. In the last six months they have increased, and after the lupron injection, I can count on having to go to emerg 36 hours after for an incredible migraine. It's pretty bad when all the nurses know you in emerg and send you to the front of the line! But they are great and I am usually in and out in a hour.

I have a migraine starting now.. but I have popped my drugs and hopefully it will control it.. all the pill form drugs for migraines don't work for me..

I just get really tired of all the bull**** ailments I am dealing with right now..

This is me signing off for a bit.. crossing my fingers and hitting the couch with my demerol..

Bright light

Well, I found this thread very interesting. I have had CFIDS/FMS since 1979 and in the beginning I was bedridden (for three years). One of the symptoms I had was low body temperture - sometimes so low it would not even register on a home thermometer. I felt really awful when my temperature was low and would take hot baths to heat myself up. I also found that I was not in much pain at those times but when my body temperature hovered around 'normal' the pain would return with a vengeance. I remember saying often that I preferred the pain to how awful I felt when my body temperature was low.

The bright side: after several years of being very, very sick I got a little better. Over 20 years I learned how to live with it and felt better. When I went through menopause I felt LOTS better. I haven't taken my temperature in years, but I doubt that it is low. The pain has subsided, the fatigue is less. I am still on total disability, but I feel very much like a normal human being (with restrictions). PLUS, my FM did not flare when I had my hysterectomy two years ago NOR did it flare when I had hernia repair 5 weeks ago. It does take me about twice as long to get my energy back as it is normally predicted it will, but that's not a real high price to pay considering everything. So there is hope, even after many years of not getting better.

WOW! Very interesting site. I have body pain and aches, but I really don't think it's fibro - even though I have many of the symptoms; especially the night waking/inability to sleep all night, frequent urination (at least 3x every night), low temp and of course, migraines. I guess I never really thought about low temp adding to my fatigue! I've had it my whole life, my mom's the same way. Interesting!

Thyroid and Body Temperature

My body temp was on the way down for years - I thought it had something to do with being over the hill - and that may be the case for me!

Anyway, it's coming back up now I'm taking Synthroid for hypothyroidism. I think the test range for good thyroid function is too large - lots of people aren't diagnosed.
