Do you find yourself really cold in air conditioning?

    I go to bed freezing from the AC being on 74, pull the covers over ny head (literally), and wake up in the middle of the night sweating

    I’m more cold tolerant and Heat is my enemy for sure anything over 73 or 75 Im sweating which causes my nerve pain to kick in bad so at night in this house because my father is cold sensitive I will get in the shower rinse down hair and all and go to bed wet to say cool because I have no Ice packs and if I did I would have no place for them. layering in winter if its that cold for me but summer its wear as little as I can in a house with 3 other people.

    If your cold add a blanket no need for everyone to suffer because you are .

    Sometimes I wish the A/C would break but that is selfish ..so it’s on with the hoodie and sometimes my nanny blanket over my legs.

    I usually wear a hoodie because I’m freezing. We keep our ac on 74• for my wife and the dogs. 76• would be better for me. It’s always give and take with temperature. Too hot = bad, too cold = bad. I’m always searching for the happy medium.

    Yes. I sometimes need a sweater inside when it’s 74 (AC on) and 95 outside. Temperature sensitivity is my wort symptom I seem to have the worst time dealing with,

    Hi, I have increased sensitivity to cold, especially on bare skin and my forearms. Even in summer I rarely wear short sleeved shirts and air con makes my forearms feel as though they’ve been put into blocks of ice.

    Yup.

    I have a love/hate relationship with air conditioners. I’m one of those people who hates winter and the cold but loves the summer.

    Air conditioners can be ok if it’s really hot out, but in general I prefer to open a window. I usually can’t take too much air conditioning. If I fall asleep with it on I’ll wake up shivering like it’s winter and then the headaches begin.

    Hi Lithulk,

    With any new or worsening symptoms, we recommend running them by your healthcare team. During the summer, air conditioners can be almost impossible to avoid. So we’d be curious to hear others’ experiences dealing with them as well!

    Best,

    I have noticed that I deal with the same issues with air conditioning. It’s difficult to get the temperature just right. Even though I have the AC on and it’s over a 100 degrees outside, I tend to layer my clothes when I’m inside. It’s a little frustrating because I’m constantly taking things on and off. There’s one very strange symptom I experience… I almost always have the goosebumps. Unless I’m working out and exercising, they’re almost always there. I tend to have horrible heat intolerance and thrive in the winter; it’s easier for me to control my body temperature in the winter for some reason.
    You probably already know these things, but I thought I would share the layering part.
