Who else has a painful cold bum when the weather changes to cold and autumn comes

I have noticed over the past 3 years as soon as the weather starts changing to chilly my bottom gets really painful as it is so cold but as soon as I get it heated up with a hot water bottle it is fine and no more pain...And I had to keep heating the bottle up. I have now bought electric blanket so I do not wake up during the night with a cold at bottom but I'm worried he's going to be expensive to keep my bottom warm all night so I can try and sleep as soon as it Gets warm again I'm fine I have no pain... who else goes through this I put it down to the lymphoedema affecting my nerve endings... I have lymphedema in my left leg lower abdomen and the right hand side of my groin and obviously in my bottom. And I live in England so the weather isn't brilliant. But like I said soon as it warms up again I don't have any problems with my my bottom and it's like heaven :)

Doesn't seem like anyone reading your post has the same problems. Other recent posts have responses. Running costs of an electric blanket you can keep on all night will be minimal.

Be very careful about putting electric heat on your bottom. I was sitting on a heating pad on the lowest setting because mine was also very cold in the dead of winter, and burnt my bottom terribly. I had to pull it off because I developed blisters that were weeping. I didn't know that I couldn't feel my bottom because of the lymphedema and nerve damage. Now I never use heat on anywhere there is edema. I have terrible scars to constantly remind me to be careful of my skin.
