I mellissa, this is actually my first full winter in oklahoma. I spent over 20 years in arizona before that. So I'm kind of learning right along with you. BTW I grew up in michigan city indiana so I know the cold your referring to. I have actually slept with my feet wraped in a heating pad because the cold is so bad it hurts my toes. I have a friend that buyssupport hose and the tight long johns so they don't stick out under her work clothes. She keeps a pair of gloves in her pockets all the time.
I heard the sleeping with a heating blanket actually works better when you put it under you instead of over you. it may help with the muscle aches. Other than that it sounds like you may need to discuss with you doctor some other treatment. You shouldn't have to suffer like this all the time.
I hope you can get some releif soon.
