don't give in

When i saw my doctor last week he was sympathetic and has tried me on the new meds, but it is always the same thing, don't give into it. Sometimes it is easier said than done, does anyone else feel like this. Also does anyone have problems controlling their body temp i cam be so cold even to the extent of shivering at times yet another time i am red hot

  • Sometimes I think doctors don't really know what to say that is helpful as they know that there is nothing that they can do to make us better other than help to control symptoms through medication. That's why they fall back on the 'don't give in to it' routine.

    As for the body temperature thing, yes, many of us on the site have the same problem. I tried to plant a few bulbs out yesterday. My head was dripping with sweat while my hands and feet were frozen solid! I spend most nights fighting with the duvet because I am either too hot or too cold. My body thermostate is definitely broken! You are not on your own. Jane x

  • I have temperature control problems too. I don't seem to be able to maintain a steady body heat. I'm either on fire or bitterly cold.Hang on in there with your GP' at least he seems to care. xx

    Sudden stupid thought, but it amused me! xx

  • I'm normally on fire; but if I get cold I can take days to warm up again.
