My thyroid has been tested multiple times and seems fine. However, I am constantly so cold that I often have to get in a tub of scalding water to stop shivering. Extra clothes don't help and the coldness IS NOT in my extremities to nearly the degree I feel is in my upper arms and core. It is genuinely painful and is only eased if I warm up from the inside out via hot beverages or as I mentioned an extremely hot bath.
I have also been trying to get a diagnose for (ironically) sun sensitivity that began seven years ago (I'm 39). Any exposure to the sun and sometimes even just flourescent lights results in either 2-3" flat plateau like lesions or a concentrated rash. I've tested negative for Lupus. Could these two be connected? My pcp and my rheumatologist don't seem to think so. Any thoughts would be profoundly appreciated.
