Less Insulating Fat makes you colder
Monday, October 28, 2013
Last night I was freezing, trembling, my core temperature dropped, I was an Ice cube. The home heating system was on and yes it is cool but not cold in our home at night. I was using my c-pap and breathing in cool humidified air and under a sheet and our heavy winter quilt. It didn't matter. I literally had trouble alerting my husband, who gathered me against him but could not warm me up. I even turned on a heating pad. He sent me in the usually toasty bathroom to get in a warm tub and the little heater in there was not on so back into bed I went. He got my house coat that I refused because it was cold and instead laid it over the blanket with an extra blanket and climbed back in to warm me. Finally the trembling subsided.
It was a rough night and oh I hurt this morning after being so tense with cold. I wonder if this had something to do with hurting the other morning. So Yes I have an extra quilt on the bed and have let Luke know I will have the electric blanket which he does not like on the bed if it happens one more time. I don't want to go through that again.
On a happy note I saw my Chiropractor this morning and got rid of the headache. I should of went sooner. He adjusted my back and neck T 11-12 compression fracture and C2 fracture are old injuries that will always give me some problems. I have had headache relief today within about 5 minutes of the adjustment. It was just gone! Praise Jesus and while I am tired from last night I have had a good day, got my 10,000 steps in, and not required continued Tylenol.
