Brief Answer:
Could be due to hypoglycemia.

Detailed Answer:
Hi, I am Dr Gopal Goel Orthopedic Surgeon.
You have low back pain , sweating off and on and low body temperature.
This kind of picture can be expected if you have diabetes and are suffering from hypoglycemic attacks. In certain Type of infection also the body temp may be low.
I suggest you take little sugar with lemon whenever you have sweating and also get Tests for diabetes and infection.
Please check the thermometer also and if not certain take temp again with a different thermometer.
Thanx for the question. Please feel free to ask any other question.
