I cannot keep my arms/hands warm.

I also can barely eat anything. All this happened over a week ago and now I am at my wits end. I have barely been able to eat, basically having to force my food down. I feel extremely cold almost all the time, near shivering. I have a mild cough and a little bit of pain in my throat. I try to eat 3 meals a day but usually I get my breakfast in, a small lunch and a small dinner.

I am going to the doctor on wednesday but is there any ideas towards what it might be, thyroid seemed to be a popular idea.

I am not a known diabetic and I don't have any excessive hunger needs.

I also have been more depressed throughout my time with this.

  • There's a virus that's been going around here lately. My mom had it for like 2 weeks. It started with a sore throat and she wasn't able to eat much while she had this. She did mention that she was cold when it wasn't even cold in the house. (I always get cold very easily and I was completely warm when she said she was really cold) I too have been feeling really cold within the past week or so...the other day I started to get shivery from being so cold and yesterday it was 74 degrees in my room and I was wearing a thin long sleeve shirt with a thin sweatshirt over it and was still really cold. Right now my hands feel very cold and my throat feels a bit sore. I have been eating normal and haven't noticed being depressed from this though. But, I'm thinking maybe I could be coming down with this virus as well. I think it could be this virus that's going around. At least that's what I'm assuming based on the symptoms my mom and step-sister had when they had this and what you mentioned.
