Feel cold most of the time
I am cold a lot of the time when other people are not.  I am a woman 64 years old,  5' 5" and weight 132 lbs.  I lost 30 pounds about 4 years ago and that is when I began feeling cold so much.  My thyroid is apparently normal (according to blood tests).  I am already bringing out the polar fleece and am not looking foward to a long cold winter.  I also walk year round an hour a day 6 days a week

Hello,

Feeling cold or chills without fever can be due to age(the very young or elderly may have more difficulty with body temperature regulation),hypothyroidism,anemia,anxiety and panic atteacks,hypoglycemic attacks,infections(like lupus, bladder infection, septicemia ), decreased immune function or leukemias.hyperhydrosis(excessive sweating) and menopause in women.Sometimes, patients who have recovered from a febrile illness continue to experience chills in the convalescence period.

Pls consult a physician as a confirmatory diagnosis has to be made after examiantion and investigations like blood tests and hormone levels evaluation has to be done..Treatment will depend on the same.

Take care and do keep us posted on how you are doing.
