My name is April, and I am 19 years old.
I have a similar problem to your son, in that I am almost constantly freezing cold-even to the touch. And I know it is not the temperature in my house, because the people around me will be fine-they can be wearing t-shirts and pants, but I can be dressed with 2 sweaters and 2 pairs of pants....
I am sorry in that I don't really have an answer for you, and I don't know what you can do about your son. Recently, I had my thyroid gland tested...however, that was not the problem. I also know that I am anemic, with a low mean cell volume (MCV)...I am not a doctor, but this may be something you want to check with your son and family doctor.
I hope things work out.
: My son (age 4 1/2) is constantly complaining of feeling cold...even when on couch cuddled in
: blankets or inside with t-shirt, sweatshirt, socks, slippers, etc. Our house is warm enough...we
: have a 14 month little girl so we keep appropriate temperatures. He is coming off of a cold...seems
: that he always has a cold. He also complains that his knees hurt, especially when he is going
: upstairs. Does anyone have any input of his constant state of feeling cold? I am thinking that
: it is nutrition or vitamin/mineral related, but have no idea where to go from here?
