I'm probably dying or something...

I've been feeling craptastic all day. I've been having intestinal/poo "issues." I'm also super achy in my lower back/abdomin. Just generally feeling icky.
So I took my temp when I got home to see if i had a fever: 95.4º. Um, okay. According to Wikipedia 95.0º is hypothermia... So I sat on the couch for a little while w/a blanket and took my temperature again. 99.5º (which for me is a fever because my "normal" is 1 degree below normal.) WTF? And when I woke up this morning it was 98.3º. Apparently either my internal temperature regulator, or my digital thermometer is on the fritz!
I shall try not to freeze to death or spontaneously combust in the near future. But if I do, you've been warned!

Thanks! I'm seriously considering taking some Kaopectate even though poo-changing meds kinda freak me out...
But, on the plus side, I don't think it really affected my interview. I think it went pretty well! (but still not being too hopeful to mitigate any disappointment that may occur.)

Yay for a good interview anyway! I'm kind of with you on the poo med thing. I don't want that being messed with too much...

The digitals are sensitive to any changes, like if you've drank anything in the last 20 to 30 min prior..........you have to make sure you put it back far enough you don't get any interference with the outer portion of you mouth/lips. Body temperature can also be because of outside interference such as cold, or if you're wrapped yourself in a mountain of blankets or even sleeping/sitting close against another person.

99.5 even with people who isn't normally 98.5 would be considered a low grade fever.....and fevers are not always a BAD thing.

Sounds like you had a touch of a flu like bug.....poor baby. I hate when that happens.
