Part of our normal rhythm is to get cooler at night (helps us sleep) and warmer in the morning (tells us to wake up) -- but it sounds like you are hitting extremes in both the AM & PM.
One thing I do that helps a bit is an electric blanket that turns off after a set period of time (they are usually either 10 or 12 hours). Mine is 10 hours, so I turn it on high about
11 hours before I want to get up (3 hours before an 8-hr sleep). So the bed gets toasty, and when I get in I turn it to medium....it stays on medium for 7 hours, then shuts itself off an hour before I get up. You may have to play with the timer to see what works for you -- I've had spells when I'm HOT after only 5 hrs of sleep, so I turn on the blanket much earlier....
The other thing is to let your doctor know about
this. It could be related to a med or a vitamin deficiency he would want to address. Hormones can get messed up for us easily - it could be a simple thyroid problem...
Good luck - being the wrong temperature is a DRAG, I know!
