Cold in day but too hot T night

Posted , 7 users are following.

hi i am 39 female with cfs. I am always cold during the day, people laugh at me am so cold. My feet are usually the worst and I need to wear 2 pairs of socks at times. Yet at night, am roasting, I have to open both windows, and the radiator is switched off. I am wondering if others suffer like this? 

Thanks, tried ginkgo biloba but made no difference.

    I too have temperature sensitivities. I always chalked it up to menopause.. (which never ends apparently) I keep it very cool at night & turn it warmer during the day. I sleep much better if it is cold, but it has to be warmer when I am awake.

    I can't tolerate the heat either, I live in air conditioning during summer.

    Hi there,

    I've had M.E. a very long time and very very cold feet!

    They get so cold they can feel sore with the cold, so even in summer I have to wear a wool pair of socks and a cotton pair of socks.  Now I usually wear sheet skin boots as well! 

    You could get your female hormone levels checked though unlikely it is a menopause thing.  Having said that, I have an early peri-menopause thing going on and am way too young for it!

    Have these symptoms always been the same since the start of you feeling unwell?

    Hope you've had a good day!

      Thanks Hazel, I can't remember how long I have felt like this, but I would say at least 12 months, so it could well be my hormones, 

      it can be snowing, gale force winds and I still need the windows open at night, xx

      Going on my experience of menopause symptoms I was blown away with the severity they can be and all down to a couple of hormones blew me away, so I can easily see opening the windows in the worst winter weather would help!

      The heat in my body was unreal!

      Hope you get it all sorted out swiftly!
