Anyone else out there consistently cold and sweaty at the same time? I've struggled with this for my whole adult life which has caused a lot of anxiety and social frustration. I can be freezing cold and dripping from my pits at the same time. I was hoping things would start to change as I delved into a WAPF diet (about 2 years, previously "healthy", too), but nothing has shifted in regard to my sweating issue. New to this whole Peat way of thinking/eating and just starting protest-e, so we'll see how things go. Besides the obvious frustration of always having to wear dark colored shirts I've felt for years that my energy is being sucked out of me as I sweat.It's incredibly draining to be constantly sweating. It all got much worse after having a baby with chronic health issues (resulting in a feeding tube, growth issues, eczema, severe food allergies, etc.). I would sit for hours nursing him (the only thing to keep him from crying), absolutely freezing and sweating myself into a puddle at the same time. It makes me faint just remembering those days. Anyway, I know there's lots of talk of hypothyroidism causing in inability to sweat, so wondering what's happening with me. Liver congestion, probably. What else? FYI, my temps and pulse indicate that I'm hypothyroid.
