I've been dealing with this for years and the doctors just think I'm a nut !
When I wake up in the morning, my body temperature is 94.7 , and after I get up, eat & move around for a few hours it will rise to 98.1 , I also noticed it will drop back down to 95 when I'm outside in the cold.......They say that the body will shiver to increase body temp.......but the ONLY time I shiver is when I get sick with a fever.
The doctor checked my thyroid levels & said they are all normal.
What they did find was that my GGT level was 856 !!! ( It's supposed to be around 30 )
I have never drank alcohol in my life !! ( Of course the doctor doesn't believe me ! )
I've read that excessive alcohol will stop the shiver reflex.
What would cause the GGT levels to make it look like I drank a keg before I had blood drawn ? Do you think the GGT is connected with the low body temp ?
Any theories ? :confused:
