What's up with my symptoms? I'm very cold but don't have the flu or a fever. Body temp of 95.18°f, bloodpressure 112/88, postprandial bg 95. Thoughts?
Get warm: Your vitals are stable, as is your bg. Depending on what you ate, the post prandial bg may be even a little on the low side. I would try a different thermometer as that temp is very low and if persists you would be at risk for hypothermia. If it is indeed your true core body temp.
