Freezing All The Time

Freezing All The Time

I'm used to cold intolerance with my thyroid medication dependence. But I've missed my fibro meds and ribose the passed couple days (not smart I know), and I have been FREEZING, it feels totally different than thyroid cold. Keep in mind I'm in So Cal and it's been in the 80s here. Is this a normal issue with Fibro or should I speak with my endocrinologist?

Odd temperature changes are normal with fibro. It has to do with the nervous system not working properly. I have learned to carry a fan and gloves every where I go! It seems odd, but it works. I have also found that if you are cold, warming your hand and feel can help your whole body. Hope this helps. Keep fighting the good fight and Have a blessed day!

I use a large heating throw. It seems to get worse when the inflammation, caused by weather change, causes so much pain.

I use heating pad or electric heat blanket if you are on any blood thinners that will also make you cold at times.

@A MyFibroTeam Member This is how I get too.I feel the cold very much I've found that I can predict the weather as I wake up..From what I've been told by GP and also from what I've read on fibro,this is quite common for sufferers.
I have a heat pad which I lie on,that's the only thing that seems to help.
Put it this way I'm almost always on it! Even when it is actually warm outside I can be freezing.I did used to have a heat belt so you xan use and be mobile.Unfortunately it died and yet to find a replacement.
I hope this is of some use..
