What does a temp of 95 mean?


Have you ever woken up feeling under the weather and wondered what’s going on with your body temperature? Well, fret not! In this article, we will be exploring the meaning behind having a temp of 95.

The Basics

First things first – let’s understand what “temp” actually means. It is short for “body temperature”, which refers to the internal temperature of our bodies. While the average body temp of an adult human is around 98.6°F (37°C), it can vary slightly from person to person (or even cow to cow).

Now you might be wondering: How do I measure my own body temp? Do I stick a thermometer up my nose or where the sun doesn’t shine? Fear not fellow reader – there are multiple ways to check one’s body temperature:

  • Oral thermometers
  • Ear thermometers
  • Forehead scanners
  • Rectal thermometers

Okay okay… you’re probably already rolling your eyes at me for listing out these basic methods that even babies know (well, maybe not all). So let’s get down to business:

A Temperature of 95 Explained

The general consensus in medical circles is that any internal temperature below normal range should cause concern as it could indicate hypothermia (fancy-schmancy term for low core temps). A common misconception about hypothermia though is that it only occurs when you’re exposed to frigid temperatures outside but did y’all know it happens inside too?

As stated earlier; an average adult human has a baseline body temperate hovering around 98.6°F/37°C so anything lower than say..97°F should send off alarms bells but once we slide down towards 94F+” babyyy disaster strikes!

If one day amidst living life, checking emails or stocking up on bread someone’s house or on Zoom calls, and you decide to check your temperature with a thermometer (what are the odds right?), and it read 95.0°F/35°C chances are that you’re nervous systems got this message loud and clear: “ARE YOU NUTS I NEED TO KEEP THE ENGINE RUNNING…I AM TOO COLD!!!”

Most Likely Causes of a Temp of 95

  • Hypothermia
  • Certain Medications
  • Endocrine Disorders
  • At-Airway Resuscitation
  • Low Alcohol Liver Disease

The most common cause for having low temps though is environmental factors e.g being in cold surroundings (Bedrooms can be quite chilly). Other factors such as certain medications or health conditions may also contribute to lowering body temperatures, but we won’t get into those because…well they sound boring.

Protecting Yourself from Low Temps

Now that we’ve established what causes low temp spikes, what’s next? How do we protect ourselves from plummeting down the ‘painful hypothermic rabbit hole’? It honestly depends on what caused it in the first place! Basic simple solutions include keeping yourself snuggled up when its cold outside (Think earmuffs & thick blankets) , moving indoor if exposed to extreme wind-chill factor weather is advisable too while consulting with a medical professional would be advised if things really go south-sides quickly so don’t hesitate if you feel any discomfort/wait around like Hop-along Cassidy waiting for their situation getting outta hand!

In conclusion, hopefully by now y’all have enough information/understandable context behind just how important our internal temperate control system work as it guarantees proper normal functioning between us homo sapiens! So remember; stay warm inside people – whether its due to cuddling up with loved ones or taking sips off hot cocoa cups because lest thou forgets there ain’t no hoodies provided within damn neurons!
