heat/cold intolerance

Postby iseult » Sat Jul 19, 2014 4:18 pm

hi all
Like lots of you I've found regulating my temperature difficult, especially painful hands and feet in the winter etc. I've also got rashes from the sun. This year, however, I've found even the sun on my skin burns. Not just in a suntan sense. .. in a disproportionate sensation of heat! holding a steering wheel for example, or my metal watch strap burning my skin. Ridiculous overreactions of my skin!

Anyone else? :shock:

Hi. This is interesting. I get something similar but hadn't connected it with the fibromyalgia. Makes sense now.

be careful in the sun as some meds will cause you to react to the sun ie rashes and severe burns. Good luck and gentle hugs

Oh yes!! One of my first symptoms was feeling hot - and that was in January! Normally I'm the cold one with 2 or 3 layers on even with the heating on, but that winter I was sat in skirts and vest tops while partner was in layers! It is driving me mad, I can after all only take so many clothes off (in public...!) :roll:

Re, Fibromyalgia Magazine, August 2014, Dear Pam Column, If jeans and trousers are uncomfortable, the Asian shalwar can be a useful alternative. It can be made of light cool fabric for summer or warm lightweight fabric for winter. For years, I had shalwars made for me by a Pakistani friend. I always used them for gardening. You can bend, squat, and move easily they never bind or rub and are so comfortable. Just try them. VMC
