My 89 year old aunt has been feeling dizzy this week. We took her to the ER twice. She has hypothermia. Her temperature was 92.8 at one point. Her labs come back normal. She was not admitted to the hosp. once her temp. was at 97 they sent her home and it's gone down again since. It's currently at 94 degrees. We are unable to keep her in bed with an electric blanket. She takes off her socks and sweater and is not eating much. She says she doesn't feel cold. We called the Dr. again but they won't admit her. Any suggestions?
