Low body temperature

Recommended Posts

since i was a baby, my temp has always been 1 degree celsius lower than normal (this would be 97.3 for you farenheit types).

when i have a low grade fever, i would be at the normal range (98.6). recently, my temp seems to hover around 95-96, and can sometimes get as low as 94.1

I used to have low temperatures and my doctor treated me for it. I guess it's considered "alternative", but it really helped me out a lot. After the therapy I gained a lot more energy and my temperature is almost always at 98.6 now :P

If any of you happen to be interested it's called Wilson's Syndrome (not to be confused with Wilson's disease) and treatment involves taking thyroid medication for a few months. Your dosage changes depending on how your temperature responds to the medication.

Here's the web site on it:

The web site is a little cheesy, but all I can say is that this was helpful to me, so maybe it would be for someone else as well.

Blackwolf, do you know what kind of thyroid hormone you were given? I think the normal is T4? (sorry, my bad memory is kicking in!) And I think I took T3... Anyways, here's some more on that if you're interested.

Also, I thought this was interesting. This was the doctor that helped me to raise my body temperature. I notice that 'orthostatic hypotension' is now on his symptom chart (I don't think it was before). Maybe he's seeing more dysautonomia patients than he realizes :huh:

And as I said before, this falls into the alternative health realm, so take what you will from it :)

My temp is always right around 98.6...guess I am the queen of normal here! Yep just took it as I type...98.6. Although when I've been out in the snow for a while it can go lower like 97.8ish...but that is normal.

I have had a cold for the past week and have noticed that my temperature is kind of low- around 97.5 degrees.  Has anybody else had a low body temperature?  I feel sick and chilly, but my temp is constantly low the last few days.

My body temperature is constantly low although I have symptoms of a fever (chills, sweats, etc...) My temp. ranges from 95-97 degrees.
