4 tubes of blood


That's how many tubes they drew in order to find out why I. am. so. cold. ALL. THE. TIME.

For pete's sake. I walk around with these hand warmers in my pockets. I put the warmers in my bed before I go to sleep at night. I use these silly things all the time. I wear layers of clothes and feel like the air is 40 degrees (F) when it's actually 76 degrees.

The Doc thinks it's probably my thyroid. I've been on a super low dose of Synthroid for 13 years. I think he's right. I really have tried to lose weight for 3 years and I have had some success. I lost 30 pounds, but I have 15 to go and I just can't lose any more weight. I only eat about 1200-1300 calories a day and sometimes less. Anyway, I hope we can find out why I'm so cold.

Anyone have experience with Armour?
