Victoria, I'm sorry to hear that you have gotten sick and have strep. I also have had a few experiences with low body temperature in the last few months. During some of my flares when I fully expected to have a fever, my body temp went the other way and ended up being 96-97 (my normal is about
97.5). I have no idea why this happens and I need to put it on my list of questions for my rheumy when I see him the middle of this month. I'm glad you are asking your rheumy too - I'll be interested to see what he has to say.
I hope you get some relief from your strep soon. Take care and get lots of rest.
