When I had Lyme, my temp was chronicly (chronically?) low. It is not uncommon, with the bacteria messing with the whole endocrine system. The bugz like it chilly inside.
After treatment, my temp went back to normal, which for me is just slightly low, like 98.2 -ish.
I was on thyroid supplements for a while, but as the Lyme went away, I had to stop the thyroid supps because my thyroid came back on line.
After a year and a half now since you were last tested and found wanting, your doc might order up a test if you ask.
A little supplementation w/ thyroid hormones can make a HUGE difference, took away much of the fatigue and fuzzy brain for me. There is a controversy (oh no! not ANOTHER one!) about whether synthetic thyroid supps are okay, or if it needs to be 'natural', which usually means ground up animal (cow? pig?) thyroid.
Mine is very low even though with babs I feel like I am burning up and sweating. My LLMD says it is a common thing for Lyme patients to have very low temperatures. I have a nurse that comes in to fill my medication/supplement box for me and he sometimes can't get my temp to register on his device.
