If you're cold all the time, what could it be?
- A cold or maybe a virus? - could be, but not all the time.
- Are you in jumpers/gilet and the rest of family in T-shirts?
- You could take your basal temperature ('at rest' first thing when waking) is it usually a few degrees below 'normal'? (37.0 °C or 98.6 °F). (unless you're female at certain times of month) If you've had alcohol that test doesn't count. (oops!)
- Do you have a big heating bill? - arghhh £650 Gas for 3 months! strangle daughter.
- Do you come home with blue fingers and do the washing up just to feel your hands?
- Does your 88 year old mother jump when you touch her, her hands are warmer!
- Is there something wrong with your gloves, and you want better ones that work?
What happens when you're cold?
- You may be hibernating and saving energy. Tortoises live longer than rabbits after all!
- Your cells may not be making enough energy! (heat)
- You hubby says you are an icecube. (despite your sexy winceyette PJs avec cute piggies)
- You may have bad circulation, skin problems & more?
- You may not be able to manufacture red blood cells in bones (doesn't happen without warmth) and leads to anaemia.
Been reading Dr Broda Barnes and basal body temperature test for HypoT. (1976 pre-TSH) makes sense 'tho? but as he says, docs don't make much of a simple temperature test. And now history says he's alternative! Just wondering if anyone feels the same??
