Low body temp-hypo

My body temp is around at least a point or a point and a half below normal. I have been treated for about 2 yrs. with synthroid. While my thyroid levels have fluctuated quite alot with treatment, I thought that if treated that your metabolic processes were supposed to get more normal. I would have thought this would apply to body temp as well-but not in my case.
Did others with hypo find that when treated that their low body temp returned somewhere closer to 98.6?
Today I feel like I am running a temp, I have topped out at 98.4. As my regular normal may be even as low as 97.----I don't know what to think exactly. I guess I have to record my daily temp over some time to establish what is actually my normal now , so I could know if I was running a temp.
