Hi Lisabeans. Since Lupus my temperature always runs low but I also get what I call the "the hot/ colds" where I'm freezing for an hour then get hot. Yet my internal body temp is low.
Body temperature, as in all medical numbers, is a calculation. In this case someone way back when measured temperatures of (hundreds?) of people who weren't sick and most were 98.6 degrees, but everyone else had a temperature lower or higher. I hope this helps. Love, Butterflake
