I don't think "more cowbell" is going to cut it

I'm convinced that my body temperature runs consistently lower than the 98.6° average. I've noticed that, when I visit the doctor for some non-illness-related reason (a physical, say) and the nurse takes my temp, it tends to run a bit low. 98.3°—around there. I don't know the exact figure.

Which makes it very frustrating to feel like I have a fever, only to have my electronic thermometer tell me I'm cruising along at a healthy 98.6°. Do you even know me, electronic thermometer? Do you know what this means?!

Hmph: This morning it was back down to 97.9° (which sounds like a classic rock radio station).

I'm the same way - 97.8 is my normal...

I think that's what's most frustrating: I don't actually know what my normal temperature is. Which, admittedly, is my own damn fault.

I'm normally around 97, you're not special :)

Also, at the doctor last week, it was 95.3, and the nurse didn't say a word..isn't that ridiculously low? Who knows.
