Victoria, Hi there! Strep throat huh? Not sounding like much fun there lady. I'm glad you got somthing for it quickly it can be so bad. It's weird that with strep your temp would go down. Yes hippie and I have discussed this before about our temp going down when by all rights it should be up. I mentioned it to my rheumy and he wrote it down. Even asked me agian to repeat what my low temp was. He didn't say what the significance was though. I would be very interested in what your rheumy tells you about this.
I hope you feel better soon and let us know OK?
God Bless

Hi Victoria,

Glad you got yourself taken care of so quickly--good move! The only good thing to say about strep throat is that is usually responds quickly to the antibiotic. I hope that's the case with you and that none of your kids get it! Take good care.

I just read an article about low body temp.
you may consider having your thyroids checked, they may be good. but if they are sluggish, it will slower your thyroids and they willnot work properly. may sure your doctor has your history, because the golden rules about thyroids my not be exactly your body regulations. ( hope that made since) the golden rule may be if your iron is 11.5 that is great andyour normal iron is 9.5 and your test shows 11.0 well, the gold rule makes it look perfect when reality is. it is too high for you. good luck!

Everybody is a little different and studies have shown that "normal" body temps range from 97.6-98.8 and average 98.2F.  Some individuals can be above or below that range.
