my normal average temperature is about 37 degrees. can be up to 38 degrees and i still feel fine. I feel cold alot of the time - for example - lunch out today sitting in the sun shivering with goosepimples. then went for a sleep and woke up boiling hot in a pool of sweat. This has been going on for a long time. Is there a disease/illness which can make your inner thermostat go wrong?
check your thyroid -I had the same thing and found I had an underactive thyroid. Alternatively your hormones may be out of wack and blood sugar problems can make you hot/cold. Start with a thyroid test though.
it is possible for your thyroid function to test in the normal range and for it to still be slightly dysfunctional FOR YOU. Unless you had a thyroid test before you felt the symptoms, you wouldn't know if there had been a change. Go and get your thyroid re-checked, it could have dropped out of normal range by now.
Also, with the hairy thing, it could be another type of hormone imbalance.
