To get to the point, my morning body temperature seems to be ridiculously low.
A little bit about myself:
Body fat: 9-10%
Years training: around 8.
My low temperature was first made aware to me around 1.5 years ago when I went for a surgery, the nurse just said my body temperature was very low, she informed the surgeon but he didn't seem to think it was a problem and proceeded with the surgery successfully (hernia).
About a week ago I decided to take my morning temp for shits and giggles. Here are the results:
Day 1: 96.8
Day 2: 95.7
Day 3: 95.9
Day 4: 96.2
Day 5: 96.1
Day 6: 96.1
This seems pretty low to me & would indicate hypothyroidism however the strange thing is I seem to have the fastest metabolism in the world, I can eat literally anything and not gain a gram of fat. I would honestly say I've never been above 12% BF in my life.
The second strange thing is that I never really feel cold, in fact previous girlfriends have complained about me opening the windows in the middle of winter and being a "furnace".
Testosterone levels seem ok, but difficult to say without a blood test (never had my hormones tested yet). Sex drive seems diminished during the week, I would say mostly due to time restrictions, but compensates on the weekend when I have plenty of time.
Morning erections are infrequent when I wake to my alarm but rock solid when I wake in the middle of the night.
Body hair: extremely hairy arms and legs, pretty hairy chest & stomach, facial hair is moderate.
Sweating: I sweat like nobody I've ever seen, I'm talking not one dry patch on my clothes after a workout and having to strain them in the sink several times, completely saturated. Most workouts I can't even get the chalk to cling to my hands.
Stress: This is something of a problem... I am very prone to getting stressed out at work & with my personal issues, I would say this possibly contributes to the low temp.
Diet: My main meals are all pretty healthy, eggs, bacon & porridge for breakfast, meat & veg for lunch, meat & veg for dinner. Tons of Broccoli (actually addicted to it LOL). In between I will usually tuck into sandwiches. Unfortunately I have a bad sweet tooth and will eat sweets, cakes & chocolate by the bucket load probably everyday, not a good thing & something I've been trying to cut back on.
As mentioned I haven't had a hormone panel done yet as I only started taking my temps a week ago. Unfortunately visiting a doctor is fucking impossible here, I will try my best.
This is extremely confusing to me, how can I have such a low temperature yet have none of the symptoms?? I would be very grateful to anyone who can help me out here.
