Re: calling all hypo's!!!!!!!

well low body temp is definitely a symptom of hypo, especially when it's as low as 95 regularly. did they do the ENTIRE thyroid panel, or just look at your tsh?

i mean, there's natural variation in body temp, but at a certain point you've kind of got to scratch your head and go "hmm. this isn't right."

Re: calling all hypo's!!!!!!!

you should totally push for at least some synthroid. see if it'll help.

Re: calling all hypo's!!!!!!!

funny question...it should be does anyone have a normal temp?

I usually go from 97.2 to 99.8 if Im hyper. I've been as low as 95.2 which was just horrible. With Hashi's, Im all over the boards and ironically, on the rare occasions I am 98.6 degrees where I should be, I usually feel perfect.

You can almost measure the level of your Hypo or Hyper by your body temp once you get tested enough times. I practically know my TSH level just by my body temp at this point.

Re: calling all hypo's!!!!!!!

Before I started on Armour, my temp was around 97 or a little more. Now it is 98.1 to 98.6. That is during the day. Forget to check in the morning.
