I have been suffering with bouts of feeling cold and having goosebumps yet my skin has been red hot to touch, can this be linked to anxiety?

    I have had this problem a lot lately, although I'm not entirely sure if it's linked to my anxiety or not.

    Sometimes I'll be sat in a warm room or even tucked up in my bed but I'll be freezing cold, and it seems nothing I do will warm me up.

    Or I'll suddenly start shivering really badly, my teeth will chatter and I just can't warm myself up rolleyes

    Hi Entie

    ​Yes, without a doubt. The reason you get that cold feeling ( I know it well) is because your body senses danger ( for no apparent reason) when there is none. Irrational thinking. your blood rushes to your central organs and away from the extremite's, and supplying your vital organs to keep you alive. The goosebumps are because your skin is incresing it's surface area and trying to raise your body temp in readyment for a flight or fight scenario .i.e. a panic attack.. That's the biologically answer. When you suffer from anxiety and depression you (us) are more body centric. Your hyper aware of any changes in your "normal" body functions. Are you on any medication or seen a Dr lately???
