Does anyone know what a dangerous body temperature is? I have felt very weak and fatigued the last couple days. My temperature has been as low as 94.0 and the highest being 97.0. I know I don't have hypothyroidism because I'm not gaining weight. I just started taking my temperature the last couple days so I don't know how long this has been going on. I know that I am ALWAYS cold unless I wear layers of clothing.
Although, I personally have a very low body temp.. my average temp is 96 to 97f. with a few points inbetween. If, I get any higher for a few days mind you. I am running a low grade temp. While I was in the Hospital one time. The nurse took my temp and I was 94f. She asked if I was alive in the humor of it. She came back a bit later with another blanket & took it again ~ it was same...
If, I do get colder I refur to it as "Bone Cold" it's a warning for my body to get into a warm bath to bring my core temp up. I also will heat up some broth and sip away. Noting from the previous body temp drops I'd come down with not so nice a bugga-boo.
The type " A " person according to the world Doctors. carries 98.6 or a bit higher. Our body temps are as such ~ so our bodies can fight off bugga boos...
Hopeful it's only that your a really cool person... and not anything else.
You can still be skinny and be hypothryroid. You don't have to have weight gain. I know slender people with this. I would definately have your thyroid checked out. I am hypothyroid and I did happen to gain weight with mine. But with a body temp low like that I would still check it. Good luck!
Thank you for your responses. I've always been on the cold side but lately it's a lot worse. My temperature can vary by two degrees just within 5 minutes. It could be 94.6 and 5 minutes later up to 96.6. I checked on my kids to make sure the thermometer was right and it seems to be. I have been dieting, I wonder if that would do it too.
