I use a big heating blanket and wrap myself in it. That way I can control how warm I need it plus it acts as one big heating pad. Also I have polar fleece sheets that are very soft and warm, yet thin and very comfortable. So they don't hurt to touch my skin. Hope this helps you.

I would say layer, layer, and layer. You can always take a sweater off if you get warm. I also use 'cuddle duds' under my clothes, they are underwear. If you really get cold at night you could wear the long underwear. I get hot at night because my mattress has a small layer of foam and that creates heat for me. There are heated mattress pads for those who are cold. Wear a hat and scarves and double glove. Thick warm socks and warm boots.

@A MyFibroTeam Member I understand what your saying. I'm the same way. I start with heat but also have a fan on at the same time. It's very frustrating.

BTW don't use mattress pads or heating pads on a TemporPedic mattress. It will hold the heat and could cause a burn or fire.
