Is my body temperature normal?


Posted by Logan O. Facebook

For the past month or two, I have had a body temperature thats slightly elevated at 99.2. Sometimes it gets closer to 100.0. Sometimes it is as low as 97. Does this mean I have an infection, or does this just mean my temperature is higher than the 'normal' 98.6?

There's actually a range of body temperatures for a typical healthy adult. Body temperature is affected by the time of day, where it's take, and a bunch of other factors like if you're hungry or not. If you don't feel, your body temperature probably is not indicaitng anyting serious. You should check with your doctor to make sure nothing is wrong of course, but a slightly higher or lower body temperature is normal.
