97.4 body temperature and burning up with body heat and sweating I am currently burning up with body heat, sweating, and took my temperature and its 97.4. Does a low temperature mean you can feel symptoms like these?

You visit your physician and request for the thyroid profile test. When there is derangement of the thyroid hormones this can happen.

  User's Response
Thank you Dr. Kumar. I have Hashimoto's with full thyroidectomy and had my Synthroid reduced from 137 to 125 only a couple of weeks ago. I suspected thyroid, but didn't think it could hit this fast. I greatly appreciate the quick response and am already scheduled to see my primary next week. I am just puzzled by the sweating and body heat versus a low temperature and couldn't find anything on the Net to see if this was possible. Regards, Cathy
