Ever since I can remember which was about 5 years old, I have no reaction to temperature. And over the years i have been looking for a cause and solution. Whether it is Genetic (most likely), Mental, or something else?
And found nothing, unheard of it seems :/

But either way I was wondering does anybody else have the same issue or am I going to be the only new lab rat? for the scientists

  • Im not sure what you mean by your post.. do you mean the weather doesnt bother you eg you dont need to wear jumper or coat when cold weather and hot weather dont worry you at all? or do you mean you lack sensitivity when it comes to things like boiling water? If it is the weather thing.. I know some people just dont seem to notice. It is a common thing thou in Asperger's syndrome. I got into trouble with my daughter's school as she refused to ever take a jumper to school as cold weather she dont notice and dont get cold.

  • I mean i don't have any feeling of hot or cold. So I have to think of other ways to 'detect' it.For example getting into a hot shower, I turn it up until it hurts, then i know its to hot, and so turn it down.

  • 'Asperger's syndrome' is to do with Autism, not body temperature's. :confused: Yes Asperger's is to do with Autism but those with this have many other differences about themselves from increased sensitivity to things to lack of sensitivity to things. I just thought I'd mention that in cause you had other symptoms you hadnt mentioned. In my daughters case she's weird with temps due to Asperger's. Ignore my post if it doesnt fit you.
