I'm sick today, so I took my temperature (expecting it to be high) and it is only 97 (it's 5 in the afternoon). Also, I was thinking about it and my temp was only 97.1 at the doctor the other day - and I had practically ran from my house to get there on time. Well, I did a little looking, and as you all probably know, low body temp is a symptom of hypothyroid (which I have). Does anyone know what the normal body temp is for hypothyroid? Should my body temperature start to increase now that I'm on the levoxyl?
I guess what I'm wondering is this -- if my body temp starts to go up to normal, does that mean my thyroid is becoming regulated?
