I have noticed that also. Started to take my temperature when I started feeling hormonal, then the hot flashes began and my temperature (taken by mouth) would rise up to 99.0. At first, I thought it was my thyroid. But then when my thyroid tests were normal, I figured out that I was a boiling 45 year old female in perimenopause.
