I seem to always be the odd person when it comes to temperature. I am normally colder than most people. I seem to get cold easily. But, also don't tolerate hot weather well either.

Once I'm up and moving around in the morning, I'm ok. But about 2 hours after I settle down, I start to get very cold. I end up in bed with multiple blankets on me shivering, and I nap. I normally wake up sweating, kicking off blankets.

During the day my face feels hot, but my body is cold or at least cooler.

This isn't anything new, I've experienced it for at least the last 6 months or more.

Thoughts?

What gets you hot?


http://180degreehealth.com/2012/03/what-gets-you-hot


*** Please be sure to read the comments down in the comment section because you might be surprised at what some people eat to increase their body temperature and to improve their health.


In my opinion, having a low body temperature is quite common in people with chronic health problems. For many years I had a low body temperature and I was told that my chronically low body temperature was caused by hypothyroidism, heavy metals, toxic mold, lyme disease and etc. And I was treated for all of those conditions and treating for those conditions didn't improve my body temperature at all.


But eventually, I come across Matt Stone's research about low body temperture and low metabolism and when I started to implement his recommendations, my body temperature returned to normal.... even after many years of having a consistently low body temperature. Plus all of my other health problems improved as well.


A person's eating and drinking habits seem to play a huge role in their body temperature. Things such as drinking LESS water/fluids seem to help increase body temperature. Eating more salt, sugars/sweetners and carbohydrates seems to also help increase the body temperature as well. And eating more highly palatible, highly absorbale, high caloried foods will usually help to increase body temperature. At least it has for me. For many years I ate a anti-candida, anti-lyme diet that was fairly low in carbohydrates and predominately whole foods. But after reading Matt's reasearch I decided to eat more carbs and sugars and at first it was sort of difficult to eat that way but eventually my symptoms improved dramatically and my as I said above, my body temperature returned to normal.


Anyway, you might want to take a look at Matt Stone's website because he has written alot about the negative health effects of having a chronically low body temperature and what you can do to increase body temperature.

And if you want to raise your body temperature then you might want to read Matt's ebook "Diet Recovery".

In spite of an excellent diet and drinking 3 liters of water a day, I still have cold/hot issues. Both myself and my husband have had chronic Lyme for at least 10 years.

I think it goes with the territory. I am hoping that as we get better, this will improve. Remember that Lyme affects adrenals, thyroid, and hormones. Any or all of those can be not working. We see an integrative doctor along with our LLMD to help with the other issues. Hoping that with time, this will get better as the bacteria load and coinfections go down.

Just sharing my experience, I am not a doctor.

Faithful777,


You might find the video down bellow to be interesting.


Matt Stone discusses the possible side effects of drinking too much water/fluids. The video gets more interestring around the 3 minute mark.

http://180degreehealth.com/2012/02/how-much-water-should-you-drink


If I were to drink 3 liters of water per day then my body temperature would drop quite a bit and I would also feel much worse. So, now I don't drink alot of water. But for many years I drank alot of water everday because I thought that it was healthy to drink alot of water but now that I drink much less water per day and eat less watery foods my body temperature is back up to normal and I feel alot better too. Though, I also eat more carbs, salt and sugar than I have in many years. I used to think that those foods were bad for me but I no longer believe that because based upon my personal experience those foods helped me to regain my metabolism and my health and I believe that for some people eating those foods and drinking less water can potentially be very beneficial to them.

Hubby's problem is he can be sweating around the head and neck but his feet will be ice cold. Just discussed this with his LLMD yesterday. Opinion is that it is his autonomic nervous system dysfunctioning due to recent babesia flareup.

He had this problem in the past, but it had gone away for at least a year.

For now all we know to do is try a new med combo for babesia.

I have the afternoon low grade fevers most days. (99.0-99.5)

When I'm herxing then I have low grade throughout the day (99.0-100).

But, I deal with this symptom whether I'm dealing with the low grade fevers or not.

Cold hands and feet are still an issue. I take my morning temp upon waking. It was usually below 95 degrees.

As I have started to improve 10 months into my ABX, my waking temp is now around 95.5. So I have improved a 1/2 a degree. That is still not good but better than it was and it shows improvement.

I spoke to my LLMD and he said it should continue to improve but since you have had lyme for so long it will take a while but it does show the immune system improving.

All the Best, MattH

It's VERY common for those with lyme & co. due to:

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dysautonomia

Dysautonomia (autonomic dysfunction) is a broad term that describes any disease or malfunction of the autonomic nervous system. . . .
-

Google: dysautonomia, borrelia

And: Do not let yourself get overheated or too chilled.

With summer coming, it's important to know that - sometimes - for those with lyme (or "MS") even ONE degree too hot can cause rough symptoms. You might need to consider a

"COOLING VEST" - or devise your own system especially when getting into a hot car -- do not go without ice packs.

BABESIA can be causing "sweats"

Be sure to check your posture, too, as that can cause cold extremities.

Cold extremities, especially in cool weather or cool water?

Search: Raynaud's, borrelia

Wear rubber gloves when rinsing your produce. It helps keep fingers warmer.

Try to avoid excessive air conditioning this summer. Goldilocks was right: it needs to be "just right" -- after lyme has been successful put into a solid remission, this SHOULD get better.

Talk to your LLMD about all this, too. It's important that he / she knows - ESPECIALLY about the heat intolerance.

I'm freezing all the time except when I'm in direct sunlight and the temp is over 80 degrees. No matter how many clothes I put on or how high I turn up temp, I'm always cold.
