I have suffered from being cold my entire life. I’m now 47. Several years ago I started my quest to see if there was any help for my symptoms which are as follows. Severely cold most of the time. Extremely cold hands and feet. Go to bed freezing and wake up in middle of the night drenched in sweat and of course back to freezing. Tired regardless of how much sleep I get, never feel energetic in the morning. I look at food and gain weight, so when I do eat I barely eat, I don’t smoke and rarely drink. Been tested for pre-menapasul, not it. Been blood tested for Thyroid and told all came back normal. Even had a Endocrinologist ask my why I was there and then they prescribed me Prozac, as if I was making this all up. It is so upsetting to look around a room of people who are so comfortable and I’m bundled up because I’m cold, or to be at the pool with my children the outside temp is 78 and it’s too cold for me to get in the water with them. Took my temp mid afternoon the last 2 days and it is . Is this normal? Is there any help?
