Um, that is so me! I think because I thrash around a lot in bed, because otherwise I am usually cold! So I open our window at night, and R gets upset because then he’s cold. 

Do you tend to me cold more often than hot? My doctor told me once that because I have low blood pressure, I get cold more easily. My hands even turn blue when they’re too cold! It’s called Reynaud’s, and it’s the fastest way to freak people out, haha.

Do you wear socks?  For some reason, I find it a lot easier to feel comfortable when my feet are covered up.  Haha, I know that’s weird, but if my feet are cold, then the rest of me feels HOT and alltogether uncomfortable.

Can you do blankets/wraps instead of changing the thermostat up and down all the time?

Hmmm I find it easier to sleep when I’m cold than hot. In the winter I keep the thermostat down at night and I can cuddle up under the blankets (I find that if I keep my shoulders covered, my body heat makes a perfectly-temperatured cocoon). In the summer, I put a fan on my bed and do the same thing 🙂

It could just be the change of season but if it keeps up:

It could be hormonal. You might try taking a fish oil supplement and/or if you like fish – eat more of it along with other “good fat” like nuts and avocados. Your body needs fat to produce hormones. It can also be a sign of thyroid issues (hormone) and you can do a basal temperature test yourself:http://www.wholehealthclinic.com/dis/basal_temperature_test.htm If your basal temp falls under the norm, I would see a doctor.
