How Do You Cope With Oral Surgery ?

How Do You Cope With Oral Surgery ?

Does Anyone Experience A Cold Nose, And Cold Feet?

Does Anyone Experience A Cold Nose, And Cold Feet?

I have experieced this recently. Quite often I have a cold nose and nothig helps warms it. I wear a scarf, a hat, and warm socks and wrap a warm blanket aroud me and have a warm tea, but nothing helps until it somehow changes on its own. It is so annoying. It's like you don't stop having frozen slurpee drink non-stop.🥶
