Freezing

Recommended Posts

Does anyone else feel like they are freezing during an attack? I haven’t found anything about this side effect but it happens about 80% of the time I have one.

thanks

I have had both the feeling of being cold and also sweating on different attacks. It is odd and I should keep track of that to see if it is a pattern.

...same as Fun Times here...it's our wonky hypothalamus (body temp regulator amongst MANY other functions )...source of the beast in the first place. a wise diagnostician would take this into account in a differential diagnosis

I too get very cold during most of my attacks - I'm also one of the weirdos that responds better to heat than ice during an attack. I wrap my whole head in a heating pad and that sometimes helps with the overall freezing feeling I get too!

...I resemble that remark (in more ways than one)...hottest shower on the head I can stand....know of another who alternates hottest/coldest (he likes a frozen bag o' peas...…..)

Same, a few times I'll go from blazing hot to freezing, back and forth every 3-5 minutes for an hour or so. Thats super fun when that happens.

I tend to go in basement for the cold floor, love to blast he AC out when I'm in the car during a bout.

Before I was diagnosed, this was about the only thing I would get any relief from, sit on the floor of the shower, water as hot as I could stand, sit with my head bowed. Eventually it stopped being nearly as effective, but at this point I have topical numbness around my attack site so that may be a reason.

I do tend to get cold during attacks on occasion so sit in a hot bath. Or shower. I have never experienced getting too hot, only cold.

I freeze after I'm wet from being drenched in shock sweat.

I sometimes get very flush during my headache, but almost always get cold on the downside, which is nice because 1 it usually means it's ending, and 2 I am so tired that being cold and kinda pain free, I can stop holding my face and rocking and lay down and sleep!
