A few years I started to get cold, so cold I could not get warm. I get so cold my body shakes inside. Then I start to get pain in my major organs. Spleen, liver, kidneys & pain in my heart. My eyes burn & I have excessive thirst. No matter how much water I drink I am still thirsty. My body to goes into systamatic shutdown to the point of hospitalization. My white blood cell count is 3 times over. It goes from one extreme to the next cold & them a fever. When I bring my water intake to 3 liters of water the pain and the cold goes away. If I miss one day of not drinking 3 litres of water the pain and cold comes back. I have had so many tests & the doctors cannot find out what it is......Please Help!!!!
I used to also get so cold, all the way down to my bones, and could not get warm, ever. It was found out that I have hypothyroidism. When my thyroid meds are at the correct level then I don't have problems with my body temperature. I also have multiple autoimmune problems, but I have found that my body temp is okay with thyroid meds and when I start feeling cold again, they check my blood and sure enough I need med adjusting again! Has anyone checked your thyroid? Even if it is in the low-normal range you may need to be on medication. Other than that, it may be a kind of autoimmune problem and steroids may help. I am also on prednisone for long term, and most of my symptoms get better the more prednisone I take (unfortunately.) I also drink an extreme amount compared to other people and I don't know which of my problems this is related to, or if it has to do with me being on a zillion different medications! Anyway, good luck!
