Have you tried a warm drink? If it’s so cold where you are then your blood will withdraw from extremities like fingers, toes, ears and nose, hands and feet, arms and legs to your body core to try and preserve any remaining heat lost in circulation to ensure the circulation to vital organs. The trick is not to warm up too fast as it will draw circulation away from your core to your limbs where heat is easily lost. Keep your head wrapped up well as the blood is circulated to the brain to preserve the most vital organ of all. A warm drink will warm you from inside out, the shaking is the body’s natural way of generating heat to keep your core temperature from falling too far. Curl up into a ball under blankets rather than stretched out straight so your body isn’t trying to heat up more area.
Sometimes here in winter getting into bed is colder than the room that is warmed up by the heater, so it helps if you can just warm up the bed and not the whole room. An electric blanket is good for that, it just heats up a small area and not trying to warm a room. Sometimes they can get too hot as it’s in contact next to the body!

If you are really so cold:

  • Are you eating enough, you need calories also to warm your body.
  • As Ninjaswithonions said: cover your head with a hat (where the fastest body heat loss occurs), also drink hot teas, Ginger is in particular warming
  • Wear warm socks
  • do some exercise and air your room frequently to get enough oxygen…
  • I don’t know where you live, but I do use cherry pits pillows you can heat in microwave these are just small sized pillows not like pillows, use heating pad to heat your bed, turn off when you go to sleep. - You could improvise with some cheap rice, you can sew two wash cloth together and fill 2/3 with rice close it and heat in micro for 2 min.

If nothing is really helping, something is perhaps not in order and call your doc or nurse.

Apart from all the sound advice given above, what about… someone to keep you warm?
In Greek there is a proverb, that goes “κρύο, καιρός για δύο”.
The rhyme is lost in translation, but it means “it’s cold, time to be two”.

And there’s me thinking you lived in the middle of Siberia!
See if you can get something like this.
AC_SL1500 AC_SL1500
Here in the UK winters are cold and often snows. Our houses have central heating built in for winters.
During winter, when I HAVE to watch “just one more” episode of a drama until it’s 3~4 in the morning I can’t justify turning on the heating to warm up the whole house just for me.
An electric fan heater is too expensive to run (2Kw), the fan noisy, the hot air flow dries the eyes.
That’s where this heat pad the size of a small electric blanket comes in. It’s big enough to keep just me cosy (use a blanket to trap the heat) for hours of drama binge watching even when it’s freezing outside.
It’s cheap to run and covers a bigger area than a hand warmer and I can turn up or down how hot it gets.
We got it primarily to warm the bed and blankets up because despite having the central heating on all evening, both would remain stubbornly cold. We do remove it before bed as it not really to sleep with as it gets kicked about and the cord tangles in arms and legs.

But as @simi11 said, if these things are not helping much then perhaps get a general check up with your GP, things like low blood pressure/poor circulation can often make low air temperatures feel a lot colder than it is.

Using the warm, cosy wife as a hand warmer = a shock, a scream and being kicked like a donkey. :smile:

I used to feel extremely cold all the time even when weather was nice and warm and I had anemia. If you can go to a Doctor go and do a blood check up, to rule out anemia.

I’m always cold so I take a very hot bath and that helps me a lot bc I put layers of clothes that helps too.

I doubt they have that where she lives. I bought a warm up blanket that had high, medium and low temp, but couldn’t sleep thinking the darn thing would catch fire, and burn me alive. I used it for 2 weeks and gave it away. I looked like a racoon for lack of sleep lol

Since my anemia never goes away (just get better for a while) I learned to live with that, but she hasn’t gotten used to the cold which oddly enough is affecting my Island bc some parts of PR. get as low as 44 degrees. We send our family sweaters and coats, sweat suits etc…bc is the carribeans, and coats are never sold in stores.
