when i have a low grade fever, i would be at the normal range (98.6). recently, my temp seems to hover around 95-96, and can sometimes get as low as 94.1

If any of you happen to be interested it's called Wilson's Syndrome (not to be confused with Wilson's disease) and treatment involves taking thyroid medication for a few months. Your dosage changes depending on how your temperature responds to the medication.
Here's the web site on it:
The web site is a little cheesy, but all I can say is that this was helpful to me, so maybe it would be for someone else as well.

I just did a search on low body temperature and this topic came up. My husband also has a regular temperature around 97.5 but even at this level you can feel the heat radiating from his body about 6" away.

I was on thyriod meds for about a year, didn't get the same effect. Go figure.

Also, I thought this was interesting. This was the doctor that helped me to raise my body temperature. I notice that 'orthostatic hypotension' is now on his symptom chart (I don't think it was before). Maybe he's seeing more dysautonomia patients than he realizes
And as I said before, this falls into the alternative health realm, so take what you will from it
