orally with a drug store thermometer

a little bit of shortness of breath especially when i try to move around too much

Well anyone's temperature can vary a degree above or below the classic 98.6

But with a viral illness which it sounds like you may have, a low temperature like that is in essence the same as a fever

But nothing too serious

You may actually develop a fever in a day or two

For now I suggest some oral probiotics and a saline nasal irrigation system

Let me know if you need any more information

Yes--it can trigger PVC's

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
