Default regulating body temp??

does this seem to be a problem for any of you? i forgot to mention it in another thread. along with the severe pain, i can not regulate my temp. it feels like i am getting the flu or something.
i keep my ac at 69 all the time. that said, i will be just fine this moment then all of a sudden i feel like i am freezing, yet hot from the inside out and start pouring sweat. its crazy. my house temp never changes. i can be sitting on the couch watching tv and just start sweating and have to cover up.
or, i am so hot i have to disrobe. i mean all of a sudden. just burning up.

i dont understand it and i hate it. its terrible.

nothing is normal anymore

Yes I have it sometimes, other times I feel almost normal...

I think it's fairly common with CRPS. I find the weird body temp over-reaction is worse if there's something else going on - ie I'm under a lot of stress, not sleeping properly, fighting a cold or something. When I'm generally well, it's not so much of an issue. When the weather is 'close' and clammy it's worse too.

A/con completely messes me up tho - I hate going into the chiller section of supermarkets because the cold of it hits me like a wall of pain, and I feel my whole left side just prickle up with that cold burn. Ugh.

Take care of yourself and I really hope things settle down for you soon.

CRPS started in left knee after op in Aug. 2011
Spread to entire left leg and foot, left arm, right foot.

Coeliac since 2007.
Patella femoral arthritis both knees.

Keep smiling!

What is a quarter degree change to everybody else feels like 20 degress to us. A very slight cool puff of wind feels like a 40mph blizzard to me and hand/arm/foot instantly turn to ice
I used to be indecisive but now I'mnot so sure
