I’ve gone back to doing yoga after a few years off to try
and get some movement back in my body. I get quite warm during yoga, and it
takes me about half an hour to cool down.
I’ll be comfortable for about an hour, and then all of a
sudden I’m freezing. Today I tried hot tea, jumpers, ugg boots, blankets… But I
was still freezing. I was so cold that the gums above my front teeth were cold
to touch. (It was like I’d had a cold drink… except I’d been drinking hot tea…)
I wound up having a shower just to warm up. That worked for
about 40 minutes, but even though I rugged up afterwards I’m getting cold
again. It’s like there’s a core of ice
in my diaphragm.
It’s a lovely warm, sunny day… and I’m hiding under a
blanket drinking hot water because my body temperature keeps dropping insanely low.
Any ideas what can cause this?
(Other than blood pressure, that’s fine today :D)
A bit of research and pestering people at the gym has uncovered that this can be a sign of low iron, low thyroid function, or dehydration.
Time to go pester my GP i think.
