I am cold all the time. I wear layers in wintertime and even in the summer months.
Being sensitive to cold is a symptom reported by many fibromyalgia sufferers. The winter months can be tough for us and sometimes, the only resolution is just to stay warm. Unfortunately, people with fibromyalgia have a hard time getting warm and staying warm.
While it may be difficult to stay warm, it is important to dress in layers during the winter months so as to avoid flares. Sadly, there is no medication out there that helps with temperature sensitivity so we are just stuck with staying indoors and dressing in layers both indoors and outdoors.
Is cold sensitivity an issue you have dealt with? What things have you done to stay warm especially during the winter months?
