What could be the cause of a higher oral temperature ?

Hi yesterday I noticed my oral temperature went up. 

I am a stressed person and I do suffer from anxiety. I do noticed that I clench my jaw almost all the time so could the clenching of my jaw increase blood flow to my mouth which causes my temperature to rise? Additionally I do get a hot flash on my face when I am stressed or nervous so could that cause an increase too? 

When I woke up this morning I had a lower then normal body temperature which is normal for waking up. Then throughout the day when I’m not stressed my temperature is normal. But when I’m stressed it goes up! 

I also have 0 symptoms of any illness so we can rule that out. 

No headaches no fatigue and no weakness. 

I feel peachy keen just have a higher then usual temperature. 

Also also. When taking exterior temperature and arm pit temperature it was normal when I had the higher oral temperature.

    temp fluctuates through out the day normally, so you shouldn't obsess over it anyway.  clenching your jaw shouldn't do that much, maybe flushing but again not significantly. I would not worry
