Last night I thought I would have a nice soak in a bath and that would regulate my body temperature nicely. I checked the temperature with my hands and arm before putting a frozen foot in and it seemed a nice temperature. I put my foot in and I got this massive shock feeling over and over and I had to get out! It was like I was plugged into an electrical socket and I couldn't stop the sensation from carrying on. I got out of the tub, but that didn't help. Weird messages I guess travelling to my feet cause that. Too many speed bumps on my nerve path? Who knows. What I do know is normal people don't get that reaction!
So, I ran cold water for a long time and made the bath luke warm and got back in. Not so nice and relaxing as I would have liked, but the more luke warm water seemed to do the trick for my feet. For the moment. I got out of the tub and went to bed but then promptly overheated. I removed all my blankets and spent another hour and a half cooling down. I fell asleep and at 3am I woke up cold. I yanked back my covers to warm up again but couldn't get back to sleep or regulate my body temperature for another 3 hours. Then my alarm went off. 5 hours of sleep. Sigh... this is going to be a long day.
