Thanks for your responses guys! I’ve found this;
A quote referring to the thyroid;
Let’s use an example to understand the implications of this. Suppose someone has an under active thyroid. There are many reasons for this and one of the potential ones is bad posture. This is possible as the nerves that supply the thyroid come from the lower neck (C7). If a person has been working a desk job for a long time as an example and now suffers from poor posture and a head that is no longer stacked vertically over their body there will be constant pressure on this nerve to the thyroid. If this goes on long enough wear and tear (osteoarthritis) to the lower neck will occur. In this example we would now have constant pressure on the nerve that would be interfering with the messages to the thyroid resulting in decreased function.
Thanks for your reply Finngarian, I never really feel that cold. I think the issue could be sleep related, because no matter how much sleep I get I never wake up feeling that refreshed even though I always get at least 8 hours sleep. I’m just getting slightly frustrated with my morning temperature as it’s never above 36.5 and I’m not sure what else to change/try. I’ve tried going to bed earlier but I can never get to sleep and end up lying in bed for hours. I think my body is just used to late nights. Could it be possible that this is causing my progress to stall?
Tried drinking less, morning temperatures are still the same between 36.2 and 36.4. I’ve found the less I drink, the more I feel I need to urinate. I’ve been watching the color of my urine and it always has some color to it, even if I urinate twice within an hour. I’m not sure what else to try to raise my temperatures. Does any one have any ideas or similar experiences?
From reading around the forum, I think I’ll see if drinking less will help raise temperatures. I’m curious as to what the temperature should be before bed, should we be aiming for 36.8-37? So maybe limiting liquids and having something before bed might help. I’ll continue to test and see what happens. In response to hazmatt, I’m always pretty tired, I average around 8-9 hours sleep each night.
