    Low body temp

    Hi everyone! Happy NY!
    Got one question for those who know
    I\ve had a low body temperature recently - 35.7C (normal 36.4-37.0). So i wonder if a low body temperature is a symptom of hypo or hyperT?
    Thanx in advance.

    Re: Low body temp

    Hello and nice to hear from you again. A low body temperature is a symptom of hypothyroidism. When you feel cold and everyone else is warm.

    Hyperthyroidism is the opposite. You feel hot and get sweaty.

    Are you on antithyroid drugs?

    Re: Low body temp

    Hey, hope you don't mind if I jump in and ask a question!!! I am Hypothyroid and my body temp has always been low (when taken with a thermomter) but I get hot easy ( it does not help that I live in Florida). What is up with that??

    Re: Low body temp

    Come to think of it. I must correct myself ,excuse me. When I was hypo it did seem like the heat was very hard to take. Somewhere I read that you can't take the cold or the heat.

    Re: Low body temp

    Tgb,

    It's the Humidity thats gets me, an I even live in the Northwest part of fla.
    You would think the humidity would be less here. Sinus headaches all the time in the summer. I have read "here" that sinus problems can be part of Hypothyroid, and I have sinus drainage alot (even now, and there's no humidity)

    Re: Low body temp

    When I was hyper, was getting sinus infections all the time. While hypo, had trouble breathing and stuffiness, snoring. You know, all those hypo symptoms.

    Re: Low body temp

    OMG, you're kidding me!! Hypothyroidism can cause sinus problems? I have what I think is UNdiagnosed hypoT and I'm about to have my third sinus surgery next month!

    Is there no end in trying to find out what symtoms are being caused by what parts of the body??? It's like who came first -- the chicken or the egg?

    Excuse the rant -- I'm frustrated...

    Inq

    Re: Low body temp

    I have alot of body temp symptoms from being hypo, in fact I am going in for bloodtests much earlier than I am due because my temp ( which was stabalized by meds for months) is plummeting again.

    For me there is no mistaking it. I feel like I have been suddenly plunged into a vat of ice water and my temp will drop from a normal 98.4 to 96.4 in a matter of minutes. It is very uncomfortable. The lowest temp I have experienced is 95.7 I think, might have been a tad lower, can't recall.

    I go in on Monday for an exam and bloodwork just because the temp is acting up again and I'll almost guarentee that my numbers have taken a turn for the worse. All's I have to say to the nurse at my Dr's office is "I'm freezing again" and they set the appt.

    My temps are a very good guage for where my numbers are usually.
