I find that I need adequate carbohydrates and other energy sources to stay warm. A low fat diet can be counter productive to energy and brain support. Natural animal fats (not processed animal fats) are very useful to the brain. The recommended vegetable fats are olive oil and coconut oil.
This might be worth some experimentation. Have you had your Thyroid blood tests done?
Thank you for response. I have had my blood test done and everything came back ok....I start my day with carbs and really love them, so they slip in often. I only use olive oil and coconut oil....I have been freezing for all seasons since accident. It is the craziest thing because I always said before that big sweat glands run in dad's genes, I used to always be so hot and wish to be cold! I got my wish I guess
**The weirdest thing is my hands and feet stay cold when I do my walks indoor/outdoor. The only time I can get warm is if I take hot showers few times a day and the best is when I get head wet with hot water...it is only temporary relief then go back to freezing....I got it on the symptoms list for when I see psychiatrist/physiatrist that specialize in TBI/PCS whenever that happens
