Yes, a 3 degree drop is HUGE, either you've measured incorrectly or something is quite wrong with you, try it again, use another orifice, or armpit.

That reading is wrong. Your temp is not 34C. I guarantee it.

If it was 3 degrees up on 37 you would be extremely ill. I assume it works the same the other way.

It certainly isn't good... you might want to see your GP if it's not better by morning... in the meantime stay warm

Keep the thermometer under your tongue for 1 full minute.

Yes. Definitely. I'm surprised you are still able to start a thread in TSR.
Your enzymes work with a specific temperature. They are very sensitive and if your temperature has decreased, the rate of activity your enzyme can carry out decreases and you will soon......

My normal body temperature is about 35.5c and I've noticed that it makes a huge difference. Always cold and go around wearing jumpers when it's not.

You probably have a virus, take paracetamol and ibuprofen regularly. Sip on clear fluids (not too much at once, or you'll vom) to keep yourself well hydrated or you'll feel worse. Don't worry too much about food if you don't feel like it. Keep warm and have a couple of days in bed... you'll be right as rain soon enough
