My temperature is 99.1. Is that within normal range?

My temperature is 99.1. Is that within normal range?

Temperature: Body temperature depends on multiple factors -- the person, your age, what you've been doing, time of day, where you're measuring (under tongue, armpit, rectally, etc). Normal body temperature varies between 97 to 99 degrees f -- so without knowing about the factors mentioned above, i'm guessing your 99.1 degrees is probably normal. ...Read more

I've felt like I've had a fever... But my temperature is in the normal range and my skin does not feel hot to the touch. I'm also very fatigued!

Can a sixty degree drop in environment temperature (85 down to 20) for ten days raise blood pressure for people who are in normal range but with meds?

Abnxiety: Over sudden severe drop could cause some elevation. - i can only think of vasoconstriction of peripheral blood vessels due to cold as another possible cause of slight increase. What ever you do, stay warm, wear a hat. ...Read more

Throughout my life, my body temperature has been about 96.6. What does it mean that my temp is significantly outside of normal ranges?

Not much usually.: Hypothyroidism can be the cause of low body temp. If that is not your problem, many people normally run a low temp. 98.6 is just the median range for a normal temp, many people are above and below that. ...Read more

I have a consistently low basal temperature. It has ranged from 93 - 97 for several months. I am always cold. Thyroid tests have come back normal.

Normal.: May be artifact of the device or the way in which you are measuring. Your basal temp may be lower than the average ( which in large population studies is really 98.2 degrees f ). There is no disease that causes decreased temp other than the obvious hypothyroid and hypothermia. ...Read more
