Lately I've been getting more "reverse fevers" and want to understand what's going on. Basically, I will feel very cold, ache all over, and just won't be feeling well in general. I'll take my temperature and it has dropped below my normal temperature. My body is a very normal 98.6 when I'm feeling normal and used to be naturally higher in the past. When I am feeling bad, it drops into the 97's. When I mentioned this to a doctor, they didn't seem too concerned. What can this be and is there anything I can do to help raise my temperature back up to where it should be? I would rather have a fever over this, because I actually feel much more achy and exhausted with these reverse fevers. With a regular one, I just get very minor symptoms.
Again, I'd like to stress that my regular temperature is 98.6 and this isn't a normal thing for me. I've had so many people tell me they have a naturally low temperature and it's nothing to worry about, but I don't have a low natural temperature. Thank you in advance for any ideas!
