Hello - My average core temp is 97.5 (my mother's is the same average).  Two days ago, I went down and hovered around 94 degrees ... this can be caused by an infection or from being idle (your core temp is reduced when you sleep).  There is also a disease that can cause low body temp but I don't think it's very common ...

I would make sure your doc is aware of it ... my doc lowered the "emergency room temp" for me because of my normal temp being under average.

InTwoPlaces ~ Since you've deleted your post, I don't know the situation that prompted your question.  But many of us have learned here that there seems to be a connection between low thyroid and bc, and a lower than normal body temp is one of the signs of low thyroid.  Just thought I'd mention this in case it's something you or the fuzzylemon haven't heard about and may want to explore.   There's lots more information on a thread here called something like "Iodine, thyroid & breast cancer," if you're interested.   Deanna
