OK, I've been a member of this Fibro family for about a month and have learned so much from everyone.
I can blame fibro whenever I forget to zip up my pants (and then walk into my 3rd grade classroom shocked )
I can blame fibro the next time I walk into the open dishwasher door (it will be the 2,673,957th time shakehead )
and I can blame fibro when I don't feel up to cooking a meal (the take-out place recognizes my voice tongue ) !
Here's something that I haven't seen mentioned since I've come aboard.....Most nights I have a low temperature.  It's not a fever, just a degree or two higher than it should be.  Anyone else?

I don't take my temp often either. But I do have night sweats. I imagine the Biochemical mechanism is the same. But I also imagine the elevated temp would be worth talking to the Doc about.

And don't get me started talking about walking into things..... If I go into the kitchen or the bathroom and all the cabinette doors ore open, I would just as soon turn around and leave. Otherwise it takes me 5 minutes of deliberate planning to plot a course for closing them all.

Now if I only had a healthy Indian Takeout near me :-)

Thanks for the laugh.  smilewinkgrin
My body temperature is usually at least 99.5 or higher.  Nobody really knows why.  I know I'm always the hottest person in the family (temperature wise turn ), so I think my higher body temperature may make me feel hotter than everyone else.  Just don't know what is causing it.

I don't actually take my temperature unless I am feeling really lousy. But hubby will tell me that my head feels warm. My doc has told me that fibro affects the immune system, too, so that could be why. Naturally any test that I have ever had comes back normal.

I usually run about 97.5* and am always cold and during the winter... if I was outside too long, I got 'bone cold' and would have to soak for an hr in a hot hot bath.

I have always run a little temp. My dh just calls me his hot mama! My rhuemy said that it is one of the symptoms that some of us have with fibro.

I've walked into the open dishwasher 2,673,958 times ...gotcha beat!  And the coffee table at least that many times.  I call them my shin-busters.

My temp is always around 97.  If it goes to 98.6 I have a fever.  Don't get it, but that's the way fibro is!
