Yep and you can check your basal body temp, if it hovers constantly below 97 then your thyroid could be wacky. My temperature has always been low around 97. But lately well in the last couple of years, I can't take the cold like I could before and I am cold even in the house when the air is set at 75. My hands and feet get cold, like now. I am on thyroid meds now and feel somewhat better. But with how long my numbers were it might take some time. I am trying to eat better now. I got a book to help me stay on track. I need a guide. I do have a little more energy now. I get my thyroid levels checked again next week and go back to the doc for the remaining test results the following week.

Good luck. For me it has helped to know it is not all mental that there is a physical component to all of this not feeling great.


To check the body temperature you are suppose to check prior to getting out of bed, and then several times after. And then do that a couple of mornings to see if you are constantly running a lower temp. I know I do because everytime I go to the doc they ask me if I have a low grade temp and I say it is always 97 or so. 97.2 sometimes. But mostly in the 97 range. My sister's son has a temp of 96.5 most of the time. He is extra skinny. But he is most likely hyperthyroid as my daughter is too but they haven't been checked yet. My daughter's metabolic rate was checked due to her anti-conv meds were never in the therapuetic range and they knew she was taking a high dosage for her age, weight etc and they concluded her body just burned through her meds too quickly and they couldn't bump her up anymore as she is too thin.

Again, good luck. Don't wait too long. I wish I had gone in a year and 1/2 ago when my doc friend tried to get me too!!! I could have been feeling better sooner.
