Low Body Temperature: Low body temperature can be due to an infection especially as you say you are sick. The other causes of low body temp are Cold exposure alcohol or drug use Diabetes Hypothyroidism sepsis If lower temp of 96.3 persists in normal surrounding temp, then you should get yourself checked by your doctor

Fever: No way to know what this was. As long as you are feeling better would relax and appreciate the fact that the illness, whatever it was, is short lived. If it returns, suggest you see your local doctor. Good luck.

I rarely get sick, and my temperature is always low. Would a normal temp be a fever in me?

I rarely get sick, and my temperature is always low. Would a normal temp be a fever in me?

Fever: Not necessarily. Depends upon the manner in which you are taking your temperature (oral, axillary, rectal, etc.) and the time of day. It is generally assumed that if your temperature exceeds 100 degrees that this is not normal. Some people may have lower body temps than others, sometimes due to metabolic conditions.

I've been home sick all day, but I just got the strength to get up and take my temperature. It's 93.8 instead of my normal 98.7 should I go to the doc?

Maybe: Temp below 90-95 is considered mild hypothermia. Though more likely you may have had something cold to drink or did not have your mouth completely closed. Recheck your temp first. Also depends on other symptoms. If in doubt call and talk to someone in your doctor's office or urgent care.

I feel hot today when I woke up but I just did my temperature and it reads 96.9. is this normal I have been sick with cold for the past month.

I feel hot today when I woke up but I just did my temperature and it reads 96.9. is this normal I have been sick with cold for the past month.

Yes. .. that is: Common. Even though you may not have a measurable fever, when you are sick your body's metabolism is revved up and you will feel warm/hot. But a month is a long time to be sick with an upper respiratory infection. Please call and discuss with your doctor's team...I suspect they will want to see you just to make sure nothing more serious is going on. Good wishes:)

Abs: This is a low grade temperature and usually not alarming. But need more history. You were on antibiotics for what reason? Did you get better? Could be all viral and then symptomatic treatment is recommended. Need more history from you

Hello, I feel hot but my temperature is normal. I feel ill all the time and my body aches. Blood test results were normal. What should I do?

Work with doctor: If you feel ill, you should keep working with your doctor to determine the cause. If initial blood tests are normal, you need to keep looking. Sometimes the best that can be done is to rule out the dangerous possibilities, then keep following up to watch for any changes in symptoms that might help provide a clue to the diagnosis. Good luck.

See your MD: Sounds like you should be examined with a more thorough history and bloodwork to rule out infection, inflammation, other processes that might need to be addressed.

Is a temperature under 98.6 normal?

Is a temperature under 98.6 normal?

At your age, yes: Gerontologists are familiar with the phenomenon that as we get older, temperatures above normal occur rarely and normal for different individuals is often as much as a full degree less. That's why when older adults do have fever it gets our attention and in elderly patients, lack of fever does not rule out infection. Babies get fevers often so sorting colds from serious infection is challenging.

My temperature is normal but my body is always hot?

What do mean by my: "body is hot"? You feel warm? Are you intolerant of warmth? Do you sweat when others do not? If your temperature is normal, it is not likely to be a serious issue.
