Low Body Temperature After Fever
Fever: Fever is generally considered to be a temperature of 38 degrees celcius (100.4f) or higher. Having a lower basal temperature may not necessarily change that.
If you have a low...: "set point", you can still produce a rise from this.
No: But you also don't give us a temperature. Hard to answer accurately.
What is the explanation for a person sufferinn from low body temperature and feeling cold (96.5-96.7f) after having episodes of high grade fever (101f?
A 3 year old girl with a high fever of 103 and had a seizure yesterday and then today low body temperature 95. What should we do?
See pediatrician: You should have your child seen by your pediatrician. A temperature of 95 degrees is very low. Think about how you took the temperature. Possible error in measurement.See 1 more doctor answer
Sweating & inflammat: Both high body temp (fever) as well as low (hypothermia) are immune responses to an infection. IL-1, a key protein, causes sweating & a rise in body temp. After the sweating, the body cools. Blood from the core organs (warm) gets shunted to the skin where it dissipates, cooling the body & lowering the temperature. Again, both HIGH and LOW body temp can indicate infection..
Severe headache descending into my neck, feeling feverish but low body temperature- what could this be?
Many things: We truly need more information. I would recommend that you be seen by a physician. S/he will determine what further evaluation you need.
Stop it.: Bundle up in a blanket, have some warm soup and stop doing drugs.See 2 more doctor answers
May be hypothyroid: If you are not very ill, which can lead to a low temperature, and the temp is below 97. 6, you may be hypothyroid. Remember, 98.6 is average, normal can be 1 degree above or below. The temperature normally goes down at night and is lowest about 4:00-6:00 A.M. About 2 hours before awakening. Then it can be as low as 97.
Basal temperature: Your temperature is not lower at ovulation it is your baseline temperature. After ovulation you have an increase in temperature by about 1/2 to 1 degree caused by progesterone. If you are not pregnant your tempaerature will return to the basal level when your next period starts. Some people note a slight drop in temp just prior to ovulation but this is not consistent.
Blood flow: I think cold toes is more related to blood flow. If there is decreased blood flow or quality of the blood (meaning it could be thin, or less nutrient supply in the blood) then this would cause cold toes. For example: raynaud's where the small vessels go into spasm hence not delivering the blood properly. I think temp has less to do with it.See 1 more doctor answer
I assume U mean PCOS: Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is almost invariably associated with hypothyroidism. Hypothyroidism, likewise, is often a cause of low body temperature. Find a physician who will treat your thyroid. I suggest a member of ACAM (American College for Advancement in Medicine) or ACIM (American College of Integrative Medicine).
Thyroid: Having low body temperature means you have a low metabolism. Heat is produced when body burns calories to create energy, and this heat contributes to your body temp. Having a slow metabolism and low body temp is very suggestive of underactive thyroid function. This isn't always seen on blood tests. If labs are normal, seek help from an md who practices holistic or functional medicine.
Many: Low body temperature may be due to exposure to cold conditions, infections that lead to sepsis, use of alcohol or other drugs in the setting of cold conditions, adrenal, pituitary, or thyroid gland dysfunction, acute brain injuries such as stroke or trauma, spinal cord injury, or brain tumor. Low body temperature is defined as body temperature less than 36 degrees celcius or 95 degrees farenheit.
