Cold Intolerance & Epilepsy

Hello,
Has anyone here developed an intolerance to cold temperatures with their Epilepsy? I'm very intolerant of the cold. I get cold when others think the temperature is warm (anything below 75 starts to feel too cold to me without the sunlight-- below 70 feels too cold with sunlight), and I just hate being cold SO MUCH. I don't mind being too hot- I love when it's 95 degrees outside and I'm sweating like crazy, but I HATE being cold. And I've been thinking about it and it seems that my intolerance to the cold started when my Epilepsy developed about 13 years ago. I read about cold intolerance on the internet, and it doesn't seem to be tied to anything neurological, but I was wondering if anyone else here has experienced this...

Thanks!
