temperature of 97.2

I felt fine and all of a sudden, I felt weak, lost my appetite and was cold. Also have been a bit dizzy. I took my temperature and it was 96.3...the following morning my temperature was 97.2. My normal temperature is 98.4. Don't feel bad enough to stay in bed, but I have no energy and don't feel quite right. Any ideas on what this could be?

Re: temperature of 97.2

your body doesn't stay at a constant 98.4 all the time. It warms and cools, not a significant change, but it does change. In addition you never take your temperature the same exact way every time.

Is there a reason you are taking your temp every day?

If you are dizzy and weak it would likely be blood pressure, not enough water, maybe not eating enough...or lack of iron or something like that. But again...keep in mind...we don't feel exactly the same everyday. If symptoms persist...then you should look for a cause, but once in a blue's normal.

Re: temperature of 97.2

Sounds like hypothyroidism to me. Low temp, cold & weak. I'd check it out with your DR.
