This is ridiculous. It’s only the beginning of October and it’s like 63 degrees outside, but I’m FREEZING cold! Like goosebumps all day even under a sweater cold. I left work early to work from home so I could curl up under a fleece blanket and I’m still not warm. This is not new, even this summer it was 75 degrees at a family reunion and I was wearing a sweatshirt and jeans and still cold. The goosebumps get so bad I can’t even shave my legs somedays without cutting myself and making a mess.
What could be causing this? I do have some hormonal imbalances, but nothing that would cause this. I’m guessing that there’s anything wrong with my thryroid – I don’t have any other symptoms. A couple medical websites were saying it could be caused by too-low calorie consumption, but I feel like I do pretty well with this. Any ideas, Bees?

I’m the same way. I think some of us are just always cold. It sucks.. I’ve always been like this.

@hogoboom2012: could be your thyroid, like you said. When was the last blood panel your doctor has done for you? When was your last physical?

@chic_and_fabulous: I had surgery this summer and I know they did a bunch of blood tests then. I don’t know if she’s ever done a full panel. And I haven’t had a physical in years. I’ve had 2 surgeries in 18 months and seeing specialists off and on for 3 years, so I haven’t seen anyone else. I’m guessing I need to start looking for a general practitioner as well.

@hogoboom2012: you could also be anemic? That’s quite common for women. Either way, I’d see a general practitioner and get some updated labs 🙂

I’m the same way, always have been. I say a stiff breeze in the summer brings out my parka. Some people are just like that. It’s worse this time of year as you bodies internal temp expects to be warmer, it will readjust. It’s the same reason it seems hot at 75 in early spring.

@hogoboom2012: girl I hear you…
I’ve had my blood work done and it comes back normal– although I seriously think it’s related to thyroid issues. Not only am I always cold, my hair easily sheds, and I’m usually fatigued. I’m definitely something… I try to take iron but it doesn’t make a large difference.
Just recently I’ve looked into the bodys pH balance.. if it really makes a difference, I would probably fall into the acidic category but I havent tried the alkaline diet…

I’m always cold too, but I don’t think there is anything wrong with us. Or maybe there is, lol, because sometimes I think I sweat more when it’s cold than when it’s hot.
