    Hi everyone. I wondered how your body temperture looks like. Even though I happen to develop severell imflammations at once (like pneumonia bronchitis sinusitis gastroenteritis...) I didn' develop fever for a long time. Somtimes it even looks like my body tempertire drops instead of rising. I know 2 other people having this in my family, one is my mother. But i never heared of something like this from anywhere else. Anyone knows this? Is there any medical explanation for it?

    When I first became sick, I'd get fevers with different stuff, now I'm usually below normal. If I'm at 99 or 100 that's a big fever for me,
    Although it dosent happen often.the best explanation I can give you is the viruses we carry around, in my case ebv and hhv6,are at chronic levels. And viruses dont like fevers cause it kills them.so I have a sneaking suspicion that they play a roll in the low body temps.
    Thyroid might be another reason for low body temps. Unfortunately I'm stuck with both, chronic virus levels, and hypo thyroid ;( I think it's pretty common, for us cfids/ fibro peeps.

    Hi, Deatheye, I started a thread recently called "Do you get fevers? Ever?" and lots of people replied saying that since having CFS they never get a fever. Lots of people contributed very useful info so it is worth looking at that thread.
