Does it make a difference if I'm covered or uncovered when I take my take?

This morning I woke up 30min b4 I usually take my temp and it was 97.37. I stayed in bed and took it again 30min later and it was 90.07. The only difference is I had take the blanket off of me. Could this have changed my temp?

  • That is a HUGE difference. Are you sure you weren't mouth-breathing the second time? I would use the 1st temp and adjust for the time difference (if you normally do that). Having blankets off wouldn't drop your temp THAT much.

  • I think you need to check the batteries. A temp as low as 90 would not be normal, and you would not be functioning properly - I do believe 87 is when major problems set in...?!?!

  • If your core gets to 80 there's a problem but dropping over seven degrees seems a little much.

  • I just realized I made a huge typo. It was 97.07 not 90.07! I was in a rush, sorry.
