Why Am I Always Cold?

If you find that you’re asking the question, “Why am I always cold?” more frequently than the average person; you should seek medical attention. It’s possibly that you’re always feeling cold because you’re suffering from cold intolerance, which is an abnormal reactiveness to cold temperatures or cold environments.

Causes of Cold Intolerance

There are some persons (particularly those who are very thin), who cannot endure cold temperatures due to the fact that they have an insufficient amount of body fat. This therefore prevents these individuals from being able to stay warm.

On the other hand, cold intolerance can be caused by various health problems, such as:

  • Hypothalamus Problems
  • Poor Health
  • Chronic Illnesses
  • Vascular Problems
  • Anorexia
  • Anemia
  • Hypothyroidism

Cold Intolerance and Hypothyroidism

Cold intolerance has long been associated with metabolic problems; as such, your inability to endure cold temperatures can be a sign that you have hypothyroidism. Hypothyroidism can best be described as being a condition wherein your thyroid gland is unable to produce sufficient thyroid hormone.

 If you’re suffering from hypothyroidism, your doctor will most likely suggest that you take synthetic thyroid hormones. However, there are now natural supplements which you can take, in order to assist with the proper functioning of your thyroid gland. Please ensure that you talk to your doctor prior to starting any hypothyroidism treatment plan.

Speaking to Your Doctor about Cold Intolerance

If you notice that you’ve been asking the question, “Why am I always cold?” over a long term period, or you’re suffering from a severe case of cold sensitivity; it’s time to contact a medical professional. Once you visit your doctor and tell him or her all the symptoms that you’re experiencing, he or she will take your medical history, as well as complete a physical examination.

During your medical history, you should expect to answer questions such as:

  • Other than cold intolerance, what other symptoms are you experiencing?
  • What’s your general health like?
  • What’s your diet like?
  • Are you often times complaining of cold, while others aren’t?
  • Have you always suffered from cold intolerance?
  • Has your cold intolerance been getting worse overtime?

In addition to taking your complete medical history, your doctor will perform tests such as:

  • Thyroid Hormone Levels
  • Serum TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone)
  • CBC (Complete Blood Count)

Will I Always Suffer from Cold Intolerance?

Once your doctor determines the root cause of your cold sensitivity, you’ll be encouraged to start a treatment plan that will help keep your condition in check, and thereby eliminating your symptom of cold intolerance.

Cold sensitivity is quite uncomfortable to live with; therefore, if you’re experiencing this symptom, you shouldn’t hesitate to visit and talk to your doctor about it. Remember to answer all of your medical history questions truthfully, and you should also carefully follow any treatment plan that your doctor recommends.
