Hi Mary Ann,
I think a lot of us have a lower than average body temp. However, most docs consider a reading of 100 or above as a temp and it doesn't matter to them what your "normal" reading is. Hope this helps.
You know I take temperatures all day long hardly anyone runs 98.6. I myself run 97.4 but when I am flaring I run 98-99. Everyone has a baseline and when that baseline changes and you feel terrible, yes you have a fever. Don't let anyone even a doctor tell you what you already know which is that you feel terrible and you should be treated not ignored.
