Went to the dr. yesterday and my temp. was 97.3 and my bp was 103/62. Is this common with fm? Anyone else have this?
I struggle with FM,Raynauds Syndrome,gastroparesis, IBS and depression. I trust in God with all things. Been a tough journey and it's not getting any easier but thanks to God and my family I am not alone.

I have low body temp and low blood pressure, too. I also have low heart rate. Using Co. Q-10 brought up the heart rate and
blood pressure to normal.

I also have low blood pressure. Mine usually runs around where yours is sometimes lower. The doc and I always know when something is going on in my body because it will go up-flare, illness, injury, etc. My body temp is also low, but between the hypothyroidism & fibro I can't tell you which causes it. As long as I feel ok, as ok as a fibromite feels, the dr said not to worry about it. I do keep a check on it though.

My blood pressure runs consistently low, similar to yours but neither I or the doctors consider it to be a problem. Actually quite the opposite. Yeah at least something is going right with this old body-LOL I laugh about being "hypertensive" if it is actually "normal" and the nurse stares at me until I tell her what my normal is and then she understands. Unless you are having physical symptoms with the low BP and temp I wouldn't worry too much about it but of course listen to your doctor.

If I can laugh at it, I can live with it.

That's excellent blood pressure.  120/80 is the high end of normal.  Mine runs about the same as  yours does.
I did have L-O-W blood pressure because of medications a few years ago.  Try 62/30!  The doctor wondered how I was even walking, let alone driving across the Interstate for the appointment!  I got off the medication and I'm fine now.

Yes, both my body temp and blood pressure are low. The only thing on me that is ever high is my heart rate if I'm having a bout with tachycardia. That and the old liver enzymes.

My blood pressure and body temperature have both always run low. I did have a bought with high blood pressure several years ago, when my weight was up. I started taking BP meds, and lost a few pounds. Then, I had problems with the BP meds taking my Blood pressure down too low!
