Man, you sound just like me! :)
Yeah! 96.4 is low. (If you took your axial temp, that would be even lower. My anal temp ranges around 1 degree higher than oral, which is what it is supposed to be ( a normal aspect of my metabolism!)
Read up on low body temp. I have a nice pdf file if you want to give me your e-mail. Actually, send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send it back to you.
Actually, if your morning temp is consistently lower than your mid day temp, I think that is considered a normal aspect.
Mine are all over the place.
I used to test mine 3 hours after I get up, and then 3 hours later and then 3 hours later. So like 9, noon and 3p.m.
I would never know which one was going to be lowest.
This morning, at 4:30, I got 97.1. Last night at 9:00, I got 96.8.
My stomach are has more fat in it than previously, but that is because I am lounging around all day, unable to move and especially go outside. Do you feel bloating from gas? Or is it more like a fat accumulation?
I have not heard anyone speak of gas and bloating in association with A.F. but "unable to lose weight around the abdomen" is one symptom. In one year of doing as little as I can (I previously ran 35-40 miles a week), I've gained about 10 pounds. I weigh 158 now, and thank the god lord God that it is not any worse.
You ask me what you should do. Man, if you have a piggy bank, kiss it goodbye and 1.) get the 24-hour saliva test. It'll cost you about 115.00. #2.) get a hair mineral analysis. This might be able to tell you things the saliva test might not, such as heavy metal toxicity ( a huge and common drain on the adrenals.) Then, I would find a practitioner who is experienced in interpreting the hair mineral analysis and in treating those whose readings are abnormal. My advice is to get someone versed in T.C.M. Traditional Chinese Medicine, nutritional therapy and Adrenal Fatigue.
Someone here should be able to lead you to someone you'd like to try. You have to order the hair test through a pratitioner. I'm getting mine from an accupuncturist.
Let me know what's going on! I'm sure I'll learn from your experiences!
From jan to may of this year, I was taking hot baths with ginger, Epsom salt, baking soda and Sea Salt
. I was so cold. It was the only thing that made me feel warm for a while. When I got out of the tub, I threw my mummy bag over me to sweat it out.
