Anyone get really cold every day?

Hi Everyone,

I have been thinking about this for a while and wondered if anyone else had probs.

I know some use heat pads for pain and I have an electric blanket which helps my muscle and joint pain when its bad too.

Do any of get really really cold to the core and shivery? - its hard to describe - its like you just cant get warmed up at all and I am cold to touch to the extent can see my hands etc just go white and it takes some time, maybe a couple of hours to come right again. By that time I am so drained I end up sleeping.

It seems to happen to me during the day mid to late afternoon (almost every day) and also early morning (maybe 2-3 times a week). Might just be a body clock thing or maybe I am overdoing it with trying to stay in full time work whilst not good but just wanted to see if anyone else had probs or any ideas. My bloods etc are fine so no infection brewing etc and its a fairly constant thing.

Thanks in advance for any thoughts you might have.

Hi,
I get the same sort of thing and i think it has been discussed on the forum before.
I just cannot warm up even sitting inches away from the fire this is often accompanied by shaking and tiredness.I find a hot glass of orange or something like thet with a bit of suger in it helps.
All the best

Let me join in the chorus.. Pre illness, I was never bothered by the cold, no matter what the temp (and that's saying a lot if you consider I'm Canadian). post disease, it's like I'm a totally different person.. As I type this, I'm literally freezing despite the fact that it is warm in my office, and I'm sitting virtually on top of the baseboard heater.
My body no longer seems able to get comfortable, and my body heat regulator is out of whack completely. I wear extra clothes, and dress in layers to try to adjust to it.

Definitely a coldie here, too. I saw these cool tech mittens on a Home and Garden Channel show that I'm going to order--you plug them into a USB port on your computer, and they keep your hands and fingers warm while you are at your computer.

Gizmodo has a glove page: http://gizmodo.com/gadgets/gloves/

You have to scroll down a ways for them (and I seriously want those Wii Boxing Gloves--which reminds me that I want to start a Wii thread because a few Wii Boxing sessions is a really good cardio workout) but they sound like a great idea. My fingers are always freezing.

I too have problems with getting cold really easily. I too just wear extra layers. The annoying thing lately for me though is my arms seem to be freezing all the time. They feel so cold to the touch and no amount of rubbing helps, even if I put an extra layer on, they seem to take forever to get warm again. In the winter I have the heating up full and my hubby is always complaining that the house is too warm, but I think its cold.
