Feeling Inexplicably Cold All Over

    Over the past few days as I have felt happier I have also been feeling increasingly cold physically. Since the accident my body temperature has consistently been a little low but this feels different. Starting Tuesday morning I have felt cold down into my bones all over and I just can not warm up at all. I turned the thermostat to near 30C/80F and have put on my coat and shoes and wrapped myself in blankets in bed and that has let me sleep, but I can barely stay out of bed for more than a few hours at a a time before I start shivering uncontrollably. I thought my health had been improving but I am not so sure now. Is this stress too? I can remember different times when I noticed I was not feeling temperature differences at all , but not for years. Reaching into boiling water without thinking about it beforehand but not feeling anything. Siting outside and being annoyed at the snow that accumulated on me. Lots of things like that. This sis almost the complete opposite. I have been forcing myself to eat as much as normally but with no benefit. I thought it was the flu but I can not stay warm at all. Could this somhow be stress induced too?

    I think it could be stress, I mean almost anything can manifest as stress. But it could also be influenza, and if you can I would go get your thyroid checked. Underactive thyroid can make you feel really cold. I have an overactive thyroid, and I feel hot all the time, even though it's -47 here right now!!

    I second the thyroid check...I have an underactive thyroid, and getting warm can be very difficult when the meds need adjusting.
