    Found this on Google. I'm normally at 97.5, a close friend at 97.2 most of her life.
    Very interesting!

    Have you had your thyroid tested?

    Thank you all. Yes, my temp is always between 96 and 97. I do have thyroid disease. You've all put my mind at ease.... again! You all rock!

    Hi Marti,
    My temperature is always in the 96 or 97 range. I agree with NoraS that you could ask your doctor if 95.5 is normal. I hate to think it might be causing you any stress.

    Mine has hovered around 96 for as long as I can remember. I can't count the number of nurses who read the thermometer and try to take it again. No one's ever suggested that it's a problem, so I don't worry about it. You could mention your concerns the next time you see one of your doctors, but unless you're shivering with it or showing signs of hypothermia, I'd just accept it as normal for you.

    Hi marti ~

    I think 'normal' body temps vary from person to person. Is your normal body temp on the low end during other times of the day?

    Also, thyroid issues can mess with body temps.

    In general, everyone's body temp is lowest early in the morning and highest in the late afternoon.

    Being very sensitive to a rise in core body temperature, this might explain why I function the best early in the morning, and have a difficult time in the afternoon.

    Low temperature

    My temperature goes down as low as 95.5 at night.. sometimes. Does anyone else experience this one? How low is too low? And what could cause it? Appreciate any comments.

    Thanks.
Working...
