Me ! Me !

Well ... at least in the winter. I do well enough in the summer, but once the temperatures drop below 50 degrees F. outside, I suffer from constant cold big time. This past winter was horrible. I would sit in my office at work wearing wool trousers, a long sleeved shirt, a long sleeved wool sweater, a wool jacket on top of all that ... and still need a wool blanket across my lap. That's no way to have to spend my days at work.

I have less trouble at home because I can turn the thermostat up. I keep it warm enough inside and then I am fine with long sleeves and a big, wooly bathrobe, warm socks, and slippers.

It really wore me down this winter and no one is happier to see the arrival of spring than I am.

I have struggled with having a low thyroid for the past 10+ years and aside from the fatigue and difficulty losing weight one of my biggest issues is always feeling cold. Even lying in the sun on a tropical island I can feel cold inside. At night I have both hot flashes and these intense cold flashes which is a feeling like ice running through my veins. It is not the chills one feels after a hot flash, it is feeling cold inside even when my outside body temperature is warm to touch. I am always wearing a sweater and turning up the heat, it drives me crazy. I get my levels and my meds checked every 6 months but nothing seems to help. Intense exercising helps but the cool down can be brutal. A hot bath sometimes brings relief but it never last for long. I would love to wear a sleeveless blouse in the summer but I always end up having to put on a sweater. Does anyone else feel cold all the time?
