Always Freezing

It seems like I'm always freezing. If I don't keep a cup of hot coffee at my desk my work days are miserable. I wear layers of clothes and am still uncomfortable. Is there any healthy way to permanently increase your body temperature?

I've read that a little cayenne pepper spice in some water will help warm you up.
Have you ever had your thyroid tested though? Being cold and low body temp can be a sign of a thyroid problem.

Re: Always Freezing

Hmmm. I'll have to try the cyanne trick. I've got hypo-throid and take Synthroid for it. Thanks!

Re: Always Freezing

Is your TSH is close to 1 and your FreeT3 and FreeT4 are in the upper 1/3 of the range? If your tests aren't near these levels, you get hyper from higher doses of Synthroid, and you're still having symptoms, then I'd also suggest getting tested for adrenal fatigue, which is very common among thyroid folks and can cause low temps.

While a 24-hour cortisol saliva test is really the best way of testing, most drs will only do a 1-time ACTH/serum cortisol test. This is like trying to see a movie and only watching the first 5 minutes of it.
