Chilled when falling asleep
« on: March 29, 2014, 03:50:44 PM »
This only happens to me if I nap during the day.  Right as I fall asleep I feel very chilled. It only lasts for a few seconds but it's enough to wake me to be aware that I'm chilled. 

I have a very low body temperature normally of 96.9 and 97.2.

This happened to me recently. My body temperature was 97.2 and I had pretty nasty chills before falling asleep. It went away on its own and I've been 98.6 for a couple days now. I still get random chills. I was recently in the hospital and my vitals were fine and my blood tests were too. I think hormonal changes can affect body temperature to some degree. Different times of the month I have a lower body temperature.

I'm guessing it's just because our core body temp drops a full degree as we start to fall asleep before returning to normal that if our temp is already low, our body shivers to bring it up to normal. I also have a normally low blood pressure and bp drops during that time. I read once, for my mother, that your body will shiver if your blood pressure drops extra low because it thinks you're dying. Is that not weird! 

Another thing I didn't mention is that I take 2 full strength aspirin every day to prevent colon polyps, colon cancer recurrence and mets.  ONCE in a while, if I have a headache or have strained a muscle doing yard work, I'll take a 2nd dose late afternoon or before bed. Aspirin thins your blood and thin blood makes you feel cold.

I just looked it up and 68% of people over 60 who take daily aspirin report feeling cold and choose 'moderate' out of mild, moderate and severe.
