Cold Intolerance

Postby FreddyZ on Thu Jan 11, 2018 12:37 pm

I'm noticing more and more that during the winter my cold intolerance is getting worse. Especially at night while trying to fall asleep. I'm not sick. I also have heart pounding, shortness of breath, going to bathroom more at night and waking up every hour. Have any other sleep apnea sufferers experienced this?

I once was lost in apnea; but now I'm found--breathing easily all night long.

Get your thyroid checked... it's often responsible for cold/heat intolerance.

I have also read that untreated sleep apnea can really mess with your thyroid and other hormones.

I agree. I can tell when my thyroid is off by feeling colder than usual. See a doctor.

I think that's normal as you age....that's why people move to warmer climates when they retire. More bathroom visits can also be a sign of prostate problems.
That's also common as you age. Discuss these things with your doctor at your next check up.
