Your body is capable to keep itself warm or cool as per the need but the ability varies from person to person. Some bodies are more efficient in keeping their temperature constant and some are not. Here are some reasons which could be the cause of feeling cold all the time.
It is the blood flow which gives us the feeling of warmth in our body. So if you are feeling cold all the time you maybe having circulatory problems. Hypo thyroid could be a reason when your thyroid is not making enough thyroid hormone. It can affect your whole body. Hypothyroidism can cause depression, weakness, constipation etc but one major symptom is not being able to stand cold.
By taking a thyroid supplement you can relieve it, but you must consult a doctor. Another very common reason for feeling cold all the time is—Raynaud’s disease. Women between the ages of 15 to 40 are more affected to primary raynaud’s. It is a condition that causes some body parts like– fingers, toes, tip of the nose, ears numb and cool in response to cold temperatures or stress. The blood vessels narrow limiting blood circulation to affected area.
Being anemic can also make you feel cold. Anemia is a condition in which there are not enough healthy blood cells to carry adequate oxygen to your tissues. When you are anemic your body destroys the red blood cells faster than they can be replaced. There are many reasons which can lead to anemia. Diet low in iron can be one of them.
Body size and shape are significant factors on how you respond physiologically to cold climates. The larger body mass results in more heat being produced. Maintain your weight and exercise regularly to build muscles. Other things which can help are—wear layers of clothes, keep your head wrist neck and feet warm and avoid outdoor activities in cold.
Try to be less lonely or socially excluded. Studies reveal that people who are lonely are more aware of the cold.
