Saturday night, three weeks ago. I went out at about nine o clock, meeting some friends. At eleven o clock I felt I could be getting a cold. At two at clock at night my voice had become raucous. At about four o clock I went to bed. When I woke up, I was hardly able to get up anymore. Three weeks later, I am still sick. I have been through tonsilitis and bronchitis. The cold season for me doesn’t mean that the weather is getting colder. It means that I am constantly cold – and sick.
Having talked to other spoonies, I have found out that there are two kinds of night sweats – one that does not depend on the room temperature and one that does. Here, I will show you how you can deal with excessive perspiration, if you are comfortable sleeping in a cold room. Please also check whether you have an underlying health problem.
Cold feet can be caused by cold weather: Sounds logical, doesn’t it? Cold weather is the typical reason for cold feet. Your extremities become literal icicles by constricting small blood vessels under the surface of the skin, thus helping the body to maintain its internal temperature. That’s why your body will still be warm when your hands and toes are already freezing. If you are healthy, a blanket and a cup of tea might be sufficient to get rid of your icy toes. If you are chronically ill, it might be more difficult to warm up – and even dangerous.
