Is it dangerous to have a body temperature of 96.4?
I have been diagnosed with P.O.T.S. I have a beta blocker to take as needed, but have not taken it in about a week. I take Clonapin for anxiety
Hello,Low body temperature, hypothermia is characterized by the core body temperature lowering to less than 95°F (<35°C).
Based on what you mentioned, I will advise that you see a physician who can do a physical exam, serum tsh as low thyroid is common cause of low body temperature. Your body temperature of 96.4 is not considered dangerous but underlying cause needs to be found.Sepsis, another cause seems unlikely, as it would have presented with low blood pressure, chills and other symptoms.
