always cold rant

Im sorry to rant but im sick of always being cold. Anything i wear is coved up with a sweater because if I dont wear one Im super cold. My feet are really bad... I can wear a couple pairs of socks and have a couple layers of blankets on and Im cold still. I like to put my socks in the dryer and then put them on hot.... but that only lasts so long.

I do have a thyroid issue but Ive been on medication for about 9 months now with that. Even over the summer if I was in the shade and it was a tad breezy I had to get into the sun or put long sleeves on.... I HATE IT

sorry for the rant but Im sick of it

That's too bad AL, maybe your thryroid meds need to be checked again.

On the flip side, I'm always too HOT! You can only take so much off before you are arrested.

I have a thyroid issue and also live in MN. Angel, I feel your pain.

I hate how when you go out to your car, your nose hairs freeze immediately to the side of your nose;

How the bitter wind almost seems to freeze your face in place

And how your car always takes forever to warm up.

I agree - have your levels checked again.

Minnesota has been abnormally cold this past winter.

Make sure too that you are not over dressing. Sweating under the layers will give you a chill if the material does not wick the moisture away. Make sure your gloves and boots dry in between your trips outside.

I feel your pain. I'm always cold as well... My feet are like ice cubes almost all the time and it takes me ages to warm up. It stinks.

Sorry, no advice from me...just support!

I had my thyroid levels checked a couple months ago with everything "normal" I guess. I had Graves disease (overactive) then had some radiation pill to destroy my thyroid and I am now considered underactive and take a pill everyday for it.

yes Moxie I know what you are talking about- my bf will being dying of heat in my truck without his jacket on and Im still freezing.

i like to wear the underarmour stuff when I am outside and rarely find myself getting too hot, last weekend I went ice fishing with my brother and I think I sat on the heater the whole time and he was complaining about the heat in the house (he has a 7x10 fish insulated fish house) I just cant wait to have summer back!!!!!

thanks everyone...

I think being cold in the extremities may have something to do with poor circulation. My daughter takes vitamins with iron to help her.

When I lived up north I would put those little heat packets up by the toes in my boots to help with heat when I rode in the cold or the snow.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.

I am from MN too so I feel your pain. My mom has had an overactive thyroid for a long time now. She had to go through a total diet change in order to help control hers along with medication. I know it takes a lot out you, so I hope you are doing better now.
