Has anyone experienced low body temperature? Sometimes I get very cold and have a very hard time warming up... I check my temp and it is usually between 96.2 and 97.5. Also, I have very poor circulation. My arms and legs go to sleep so easily, especially when I sleep. Anyone know any remedies for either? Or do you know what can be causing either? Could they be related?
Another ditto on the Thyroid and maybe low iron. I also have a low body temp and this was a problem when I had to have a ureteral stent put in (for kidney stones) about 10 years ago. This was supposed to have been out patient surgery, I ended up being admitted overnight due to low core temperature. I had to have heated IV's and a 'bear hug' thing for several hours. I also have Raynaud's Phenomenon, where parts of my hands and/or feet get overly cold and stop perfusing. I have to wear gloves to reach into my freezer even during the summer.
