Thanks for your replies - I'm not alone!! Maybe I'll ask to get tested for anaemia...I am quite slim and small, but have also been in remission for 18 months...
Another strange thing is that, although I FEEL cold a LOT of the time, my body actually seems to be giving off a lot of heat - my boyfriend says that I am really HOT! :) no seriously, as in I give off a lot of heat like a hot water bottle. Seems like I'm giving it out but can't feel it myself, strange...
We were in Poland at the end of the summer and got absolutely soaked in a huge downpoar running for a train, and we got on to an unheated carriage. There was actually visible STEAM rising from my legs as the heat I was giving out dried my trousers!!! It was as if someone was holding a cigarette under the seats - you could actually see it rising off me!! and all the time I was FREEZING!!
Thanks julee, I will look into the links, I think there is something in it. I have been meaning to try fresh ginger in hot drinks as that is supposed to heat the body and there are probably other foods that do the same.
I have also noticed since last winter that my feet will go numb and get pins and needles a lot so it could be a circulation issue..?
