Low body temp

The  last few days my body temp has been 1 - 1/2 degrees F below normal.  I ache a bit,  have no get up and  go.Basic blood tests   showed a slightly low  White Blood cell count. - rest  in normal range.   20 years ago I had Toxoplasmosis and  one of the symptoms  then was  low body  temp  when I felt bad.   I have been retested  for that.  I am  fit, sleep well, have pretty good diet.  what  other  factors  should I  consider as  cause of this?

my temp is always 97 sometimes I get lucky and its normal.It could be caused by a lot of things.have you had a thyroid test done?My lymph levels were also low because of a viral infection so if you have had the flu even a few weeks ago that could be the culprit.

Have you been bitten by a tick in recent months or years?  I don't know where you are or if you've been anyplace where Borrelia is endemic.  I know that you only have two vague symptoms, but that's how my Lyme Disease started.  If you keep developing more symptoms and tests are coming up normal or near-normal, then you might check it out.
