I'M SO COLD!!! Any remedies?

First off I get cold very easily. I just started a new job and I was told that my desk area is the coldest spot on the floor. Oh Jeesh! Not only is it cold, but it is also windy. I am literally freezing. I am wearing nylons underneath my pants and silk undies to cover up top area of my body. I am also wearing a sweater with my leather coat on. Too boot, I have to wear gloves to keep my hands warm which is not always possible, because I have to type quite a bit.
Any solutions on being warmer? Any medication or herbal products that are helpful? I can't change the area of where I sit. I already asked for the building maintenance to change the air control, but then it just gets re-adjusted. Also, we are not allowed to have space heaters!!! Grrrrrr..... This is horrible! I hate it!

Any advice out there? Please any help would be soooo appreciated! PLEASE HELP!!!! I'M SO COLD!!!

ya. maybe ask your employer to invest in some heating. sounds like incredibly bad conditions to work in which can be detrimental to your health. i know i couldn't do it considering my hands would hurt so bad. maybe you should bring it up and let your employer know that it's crappy work conditions.. if it was just a bit chilly i'd understand but if it's to the point you're wearing a ton of layers, i think it's reasonable and in your favour to tell him to fork over some heat on your end.

Have you had your thyroid checked? If not, do so. Thyroid conditions can cause you to be cold. Also if you recently lost a lot of weight you will be cold.

Do you have a therometer to check temperature where you are working? If not, do check it. I could be the area is too cold and then again it could just be your body. Checking the temp will let you know.
