I am a 74 year old male. In 2003 I had prostate cancer that was treated with radiation and 4 shots of Lupron. In 2004 I had a heart attack and quadruple bypass surgery. About 4 months after my surgery I started feeling cold. I cannot get warm. I feel like I am freezing all the time. I have been to 3 cardiologist, 2 endos, and see my internal medicine doctor on a regular basis. They tell me they have never had a patient like me. They have done CT scans, MRIs, all kinds of blood work, tested for everything imaginable - thyroid, Lupus, Lyme, etc.. All tests came back good. I have lost almost 3 years of my life because I cannot do anything. I have to stay in bed 90% of the time with at least 2 blankets on me. My bedroom is around 85-86 degrees. I can tolerate that but if the temperature drops then I feel like I am freezing to death. I only go out of the house to go to the doctor. I also sweat like crazy. I sweat and my skin is cold and clammy. I sweat so much that I lay on a big bath towel and have one over my upper body - to keep my sheets dry. I am at the point that I just want to die. My life is useless. I have not been to a neurologist. I don;t know how they could help me. Somebody out there has got to have this same problem. Please I am begging for any advice. (Please don't tell me it is male menopause or my thyroids. That has all been checked out.)Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
