I had a sinus and respiratory infection 2 weeks ago (or maybe it was 3) and was given antibiotics, decongestants, and cough pills from the doctor. I was given a large dosage of the antibiotics to kick it quickly. It went away in a week, so I thought. It came back again this week. Except differently. I can't sleep and I keep noticing that instead of a fever I have a low temperature. Tonight it read 96.4 degrees Fahrenheit. I can't help but wonder what is going on and if I should go back to the doctor.

I tried doing online research but most of the articles are about hypothermia if left in a cold environment, which I am not. Others mention sepsis, and some mention it as a symptom of infections. I found one article that was interesting yet a bit alarming about how body temperature can get out of whack after infections and take time to stabilize. It said that it can lead to other problems if not fixed. What should I do? I don't know why this isn't letting me sleep, I keep tossing and turning. Has anyone had this problem? I know that it isn't that far off from normal (3 degrees low)...but I just feel so terrible and would love to be back to normal again.

My normal temp for years (20+) has been 96.8 If I am over 98.4, I start having heat related symptoms with the MS and know I have an infection. You need to know what your norm is and you need to be sure your health care team is aware so they can be alert to changes that could indicate infection.

Likewise, mine has been the same average as Cherie, sometimes even lower. I have ocasionally been accused of drinking ice water before my temp. was measured when I had actually been drinking coffee! :Hum:

hi hsiw...hehe wish....i can't keep typing your name backwards....lol

I read your post today and researched on line and came up with the same things you did. They based it on environment and summer/winter, etc.

I also run a low temp. Fluctuates in the 97 area. If it runs 99 or over, that is a sign of something going on with me. Like curious asked, was your norm low before and just got lower?

Mine was always close to 98.6 until I was in my early 40s and then it changed. I think too that some meds can change body temp.
Sometimes I think the new thermometers are junk.

Give me the old mercury ones any day.

Hope you can find the answers you are seeking,

My norm is usually 98.6 but recently with the sinus and respiratory infection it had been 98 even, which I noticed was a bit lower than the norm. But recently, I wake up feeling hot yet my temp is low and my head feels cold. And curious, I feel much worse today, now I have a dry cough. I can already predict how little sleep I am going to get tonight. I just thought this thing was going away and now it made a big U-turn and came back. I guess I'll just have to go back to the doctor Friday if this keeps getting worse.

I was taking antibiotics, degongestants, and cough meds but the antibiotics ran out the day the infection started to return. So now it just keeps getting worse. I have always gotten colds and seem to get sick easily: i guess my immune system isnt too good. I wanted to get the flu shot this year, since the one year I got it- was the only year I didnt get sick in my life. But by the time I get better, there might not be a use for it anymore. Well, thanks for all your help. It is appreciated. It's nice to know that I'm not the only one with a strange body temperature.

awwww wish sweety...i hope it isn't the flu. remember how sick i got from it last year?

try and rest. get plenty of fluids. steam up the bathroom an sit there for awhile. it might help losen your cough.

My norm is 97.5, so a 99 will land me in bed with Tylenol. It's so annoying when doctors don't understand that! :rolleyes: I had "hot flashes" for years, starting with my preg with my daughter 15 years ago, and now, after losing more than 90 lbs, I am always freezing. :o It's truly annoying. (I was told by an endo several years ago that I might have hypothalamus damage from hydro and/or my shunt surgeries, and I believe it now, since my simple partial seizures bring on fevers that stop when the szs stop.)

I slowly came back to health after drinking several glasses of stove heated spring water. I woke up with a 95 degree temp very cold shivering and put extra clothes on and felt really sick. I drank sooo many hot glasses of water but it took all through the night and the whole next day to feel ok, but not good. I think what helps is lots of clothes, hot water, split a multivitamin in half and take the half a vitamin every 2 hours or so to replenish your system from peeing it all out and this kickstarted my system back up. if you take a whole vitamin your body may only be able to absorb half anyway ever hour or so.

Orange slices helped my energy balance itself, honey in hot water also will help if you have a sick stomach. peace out, and smile at strangers to make a better world!

Hi hsiw and all,
This is a topic that I'm familiar with and I know I have'nt gone into my background problems on here yet, lengthy and involved,will try though.
Meanwhile the body temp issue - In general it's said approx 96.8 - 100.4 degrees F is normal fluctuation, 36 - 38 degrees Celsius. Depending on activity, early morning body temp may be a little lower. Everyone's metabolism varies so it's a guide.
Maybe a little hard to believe but due to what happened to me my body can't regulate blood pressure/temperature. Everyday my temp's will sit in the
93 - 95 (34-35) and have been checked as low as 91.4F (33.0C) even when trying to keep active. So my temp's can't rise unless there is artificial heat. I go passed the point of shivering without knowing it, the only indicator is lethargy and muscles start to seize up, slowing movement.

For you all though it could be normal or like me it's a blood/sodium issue and the way your body uses this. My bodies sodium level is low and not metabolizing properly.
Best wishes Nick

Sometimes low body temp can be attributed to thyroid issues.

Bastille, is your blood/sodium issue related to adrenal problmes?

Hi Shelley,
I had a adrenal function test - that was normal. Many other blood tests all within range.
The only reason extra blood work/adrenal function was done - Last time I visited the neurologist, when finished he asked if I minded remaining for a group of young neuro's, due to sit their final exam; be a good test for them, his words - "I bet they'll think it's Parkinson's", he's been really difficult with me but I thought well if your so sure of yourself.
They checked me and were asked for the differential diagnosis - MSA. "I didn't think of that" he said. Blood work was ordered and 2 months later I was phoned to go for adrenal test. That visit was early May 08, I don't know what the neurologist is doing.
Thanks
Nick

Hi there,

I am actually going through the same cycle, except that my night sleeps are relatively better than your's sound (and sometimes I take nyquil too). I dont have a solution yet, but Im working towards the cause and cure - Plus I will schedule my complete physical - I wanted to share this information with you to work towards it

I had the flu infection for 2 weeks - I was prescribed with anti-biotics called levaquil 500 mg(i think thats the name) - I started taking the antibiotics at a late stage of my infection (which is 2 weeks from the start). But I was cured in another 2 weeks. So altogether 4 weeks of illness and antibiotics and not a very good diet either - Though something remained back was low body temperature and dry cough and a feeling of vulnarability in the lungs/chest -

I went to the Dr he couldnt tell anything except that he gave me lung spray to inhale as some mucus may have remained back in the lungs after the infection is cured -- But That did not help at all !!!

So I pin pointed my symptoms first (low ody temperature and dry cough) and the possible causes for it - So low body temperature may fall into a lot of categories but through the elimination process - there is nothing which pin points the same symptoms as mine (which you also mentioned) - may be hypothermia or what you mentioned in your post

So I did a lot of research and found that some how I need to keep my body warm and I will feel the same again - though it's a painful process for being cauntious of it all the time -One extra thing to do in life :) - I do it cuz it is helping to figure out more about it and put time into my job - So for now Im doing 3 things

- extra layer of clothing
- Heater on at home and in the car
- The most important "Home made Energy drink"

I learnt online that indian red peppers are the ost unstated spieces and can be used in tea to provide ultimate level of warmth to your body - Ginger is also a good heat ingredient

Directions

1- I Mug warm water in the kettle
2- Add pealed Ginger pieces 1 inch cube (2 or 3 pieces )
3- When water boiling pour it in the mug
4- Add a tea back for 6-10 secs and pull out to give slight tea taste
5- Then the final ingredient "the Indian red bell pepper" - take 2 of those and break it into pieces ( make sure you dont loose the seeds) and add it to the tea including the seed - This tea will be spicy but for an hour or 2 will provide great warmth in your body
5- Also eat well

I have few bad habbits of smoking,smoking up, Eating less, energy drinks - but on the healthier side I am fitness freak, I almost have a model body, and I work out a lot :)

Guys I think I have a found the solution based on hsiw's article he mentioned - what Im doing today is giving myself a full blown body treatement for a "Jump Start" to produce same kina body temperature which I use to generate -

I took a super hot bath to a point that it gave me dissyness - I then went off to sleep with my house heater on - during my 2 hr nap I was sweating but I was felling better - then Im just keeping myself warn and in a sweating condition - Im feeling gr8 - I hope the entire night should make my system get started the way it use to be

If nothing my evening was eventful and productive -

Tips:

Try to focus on your body temp increasing and meditate also if you are into it. I am!!!!

Wow, you have to be really careful with hot baths that make you dizzy, a friend was just telling me about her friend who broke her leg when she fell after getting dizzy exactly that way.

I didn't know that about ginger, thanks! I put ginger in my brown rice every day, mainly because I read that it reduces phlegm... and it does seem to.

The body temperature issue is interesting. I found that my body temperature changed drastically while and after I had tetanus.

It's been so long since I actively had tetanus, though, that I don't remember the specifics. I'm thinking they were fairly similar to the things you mentioned, except I couldn't move very much do to the tightening and the way it would be triggered for months, and now years, if I wasn't careful. So, I stayed under more covers in bed and I felt better as long as I kept myself warm...

Thank you for sharing your experience. I'll think of you when I put ginger in my rice today. :)

Low body temperature is most commonly caused by thyroid issues.

Also it can be caused by Wilsons Temperature Syndrome and this is a reversible condition of low body temperature. It is due to high reverse T3 or the opposite of the metabolism boosting T3 which slows down your metabolism and the condition is usually brought about by extreme stress day in day out. The syndrome can also occur without high reverse T3 blood levels and therapy with T3 can be a cure for many with low body temperature and related symptoms.

Their is no need to suffer when it can be fixed.

http://www.wilsonssyndrome.com/

I haven't done the therapy yet but am planning to my body Temp is usually 95.7F.

Ideal Body Temperature is anywhere from 36.5C - 37.0C or 97.7F - 98.6F.

Wow, that's amazing. I mean your body temperature. Do you feel comfortable at that temperature or do you feel cold?

The stress component is really interesting.

I know that stress depletes vitamin B12, and vitamin B12 is integrally associated with nerves. So I wasn't surprised that when I had lost feeling in my feet, this is quite a long time ago, that my feet didn't react to heat and cold the way that they had previously.

Before, I was always really warm at night and I'd stick my feet out from under the covers to cool me a bit. But after I didn't have feeling in my feet it didn't work anymore.

So I figure that nerves are required to be in relatively good working order in order to transmit correct messages about our body temperature so that our metabolism can adjust.

I also gained a lot of weight when I couldn't move very much due to the tightening from tetanus... and, I would guess that if my metabolism had been keeping me warmer I would have gained at least a tad less.

Thanks so much for the insights. :)

No problems. I am quite knowledgeable in a lot of areas of nutrition, hormones, immunity, heavy metals and other fields so i always look for the causes of problems not the symptoms.

I feel ok at this temperature, Sometimes i get chills which dont last long and then very hot and yet my temperature remains the same. I have had weight problems for as long as i can remember but since becoming ill i have lost weight and my appetite despite the low body temperature.

Im 20 and experiencing chronic fatigue, muscle weakness, bone pain, reduction in the sense of touch and other symptoms. Trying to figure out why this happened like we all are.

OMG, you're 20? I took you for MUCH older. I often associate health problems with advanced age... and I foolishly tend to think of people who give me new health information as older. So, you've opened my eyes to some information and to my prejudices. Thank you SO much.

I was caught off guard when you said you looked for causes, not symptoms.

I tend to mention symptoms a lot. I have a pretty good list of symptoms of low B12 on my website and I feel that if people look at it and find they are experiencing some or a lot of the symptoms then they can feel pretty confident that trying methylcobalamin is a good idea because it may help.

That's the thing with symptoms, if people identify symptoms they are contending with, then try methylcobalamin lozenges, they can keep notes on the effect the B12 replacement has on their symptoms, thereby confirming whether the underlying problem was low B12 or not.

If the underlying problem is low B12, then daily use of methylcobalamin lozenges for a month (it takes a month for the amount to build up to be the equivalent of a shot) will make a noticeable difference in the symptoms.

The symptoms you mention, like bone pain, are associated with low B12. I had really bad bone pain before I had replacement therapy, and it didn't go away the first month, either.

It's also interesting that you mention heavy metals... I lived in hydrogen sulfide for a couple years, which there was no way of knowing for about two years. It made me feel very similar to when my B12 had been low, before that. B12 helped lessen the symptoms, but it's been 6 years since I lived in the hydrogen sulfide and I still bump into walls a lot because I can't walk straight. The problem is much worse when there's a lot of stress.

I felt as if I should have been using a lot more B12 while I was in the hydrogen sulfide and then maybe the nerve damage wouldn't have been so severe. Only all the doctors I went to wanted me to get on antidepressants and wouldn't say I should have a lot LOT more B12. So I kept using about the same amount they had prescribed when I wasn't living in hydrogen sulfide.

Now I could kick myself (well, not physically possible, I suppose) for listening to them instead of to my body.

If you haven't tried methylcobalamin, I would, if I were you, get the 5mg lozenges and 6 a day for the two weeks, that would be about equal to a shot a day and generally replacement therapy begins with a shot a day, then goes to a shot a week (which would be about the same as one 5mg lozenge a day). I'm not really sure that 6 a day for two weeks is long enough for the amount to equal a shot a day for a week...

Is your name because you were exposed to a heavy metal? or because of the music you like?????

MetalMX
04-19-2009, 11:07 AM
MetalMX because im into metal music but coincidenly also because i have heavy metals in my veins :D

I also notice i have ants crawling under the skin sensation and i have had this for a long time i think. but not it is more pronounced. Im leaning towards lyme disease which im trying to get tested for. I have a rash a red circle but it wasnt a bullseye rash on my left forearm shortly after all my symptoms began last year. I also have red rashes on the knees and leg weakness and arthritic knee symptoms.

Im about to purchase the B12 extreme sublingual tablets search for them on google and you will see they contain 4 types of active B12's. Jarrow's Methycobalamin is also good. Im also planning on getting Injections. It is a good idea to do 1:1 ratio of injections with methycobalamin:Folinic acid - which is the 5MTHF active form of folate which is good for those even with the MTHFR mutation.

Folate & B12 supplementation will help to repair DNA.

Im about to see a integrative specialist about all my problems and to do further testing. Im suspecting some kind of chronic infection with either parasites, lyme or herpes simplex. I have started feeling a great deal better since i have beent taking a chinese herbal tonic called Astra 8 Immune Tonic, which tells me its immunity related definitly. Acupuncture which stimulates the meridian points and chinese herbal medicine has also helped a lot. Im also on a glutathione cream to promote detoxification of metals and any other toxins from infectious agents. Im about to do a colonic in a couple of days also to clean out my bowels.

Investigations which revealed something:

- Endoscopy/colonoscopy/gastroscopy - Mild chronic gastritis & Erosion, Mild oesophagitis,
- High Mercury on new hair analysis - 1.42 (1.32<)
- High Gadolinium - hair analysis - 0.0184 (<0.0005)
- November 2008 - Mercury 2.4 (0.0 - 0.6)
- Moderate Thoracic Kyphosis
- Low cortisol on morning saliva sample.
- Low Hair Sulfur
- Low Hair Zinc - 115 (119 - 245)
- All Minerals barely in normal range - Despite taking tonnes of supplements for the past 7 months to correct it. - indicating some kind of malabsorbtion
- Very High Thyroid Peroxidase Antibodies - 2069 (<50) elevated T.S.H, T3 2.4 (2.5 - 6.0) - hashimoto's likely...
- Low Total Testosterone - 10.1 (12 - 32), Low LH 1.7 (2.0 - 10.00)
- T-cell subsets show -

Elevated CD8 (T suppressor cells) - 1.18* (0.40-1.00)
Elevated HLA-DR (Class II) - 0.65* (0.04-0.50)
Th:Ts (CD4/CD8) Ratio - 0.8* (1.20-3.00)


In general the pulse and tongue are a good way to see into the bodys state of health as do chinese medical doctors they have been spot on with me telling me my kidneys (endocrine system) is weak, digestion/absorbtion is weak. and that something has taken my power (infection of some kind). So this is the way i look for clues into what is really happening.

Whatever someones health problem is if the 6 areas - Nutritional state, hormone levels, immune status, gastrointestinal function, heavy metal overload (hair analysis) and metabolic/mitochondrial function is checked then you will usually find the culprit.

Genetic mutations are the buggers that cause chronic disease and they can be altered through supplementation. Thats why DNA testing is so useful, but not many doctors employ it. MTHFR - The Methyltetrahydrofolate reductase mutation being the most common effecting roughly up to 40% of the population. Most of the population is Undermethylated meaning their DNA is misreplicating causing chronic disease.

For example most autistic children have mercury or heavy metal poisoning and they have severe detoxification impairments through lack of glutathione (the bodys master antioxidant), malabsorbtion of nutritients, gut dybosis and low body sulfur levels. If you can excrete the metals out of their bodys, improve their absorbtion and eliminate any bacteria/candida infections in their GI tract they usually become normal children.

Hi, I have to go make a cup of coffee ... I'm sooooooooo thirsty. But I had to tell you before I left that the feeling of insects crawling on your legs can be from low B12. I think it's because of the nerves malfunctioning.

I had it so bad, and then after replacement I didn't have it again except when there's a lot of stress. Now, when I feel it I know that I need more B12.

Oh dear... I just want to say that the B12 products that say they are a combination of kinds generally have far more cyanocobalamin in them than methylcobalamin. The Cyano is the older form, and therefore cheaper to use making it produce more profit... though less quick or comprehensive results.

I like the Jarrow, too. Though, I tend to use Source Naturals.

Now.... COFFEE!!!!!!!!!

I'm having a really hard time going to make my coffee.

Folate is really tricky when it comes to B12 because it can mask the symptoms of low B12, and it can make B12 tests give normal results when in fact the person is severely low on B12.

Now... Coffee. :)

For 20 years my "normal" temp was ranged from 100.2 up to 101.8. When I was diagnosed with CRPS it went down to 96 and has been as low as 94.8.

Likewise; when my temp was high, my blood pressure was very low 96/54. Now, easily 175/90. I think the CRPS meds AND the CRPS itself are contributing to both due to an inability to regulate body systems. Is anyone else experiencing similar? any suggestions on correcting BP? Thanks

Strange syndrome going on, this happened to both me and my teenage daughter.

we had normal temps of 98.6 always. then we got a rash I believe and got a low temperature. then treated the weird rash (localized on shoulder) and temp went back to normal. now it is low again. hers sometimes 96. mine about 97.

will check it again after checking a few things and get back to you.

to warm up I take carbs. or for long term warmth meat. It seems to work. Oh and stay away from warm climate foods if in a cold climate makes a big difference.
