temperature drop after dinner, anyone else?

this has been happening for some time but is just getting worse and wonder if it happens to anyone else, is it hormonal, blood sugar, something to do with my RLS?? Immune system?

After I eat dinner at night I get freezing cold, I mean last night i put on a sweatshirt over my nightie, trackpants, housecoat and a blanket and was still freezing so I finally decided to take my temperature when this is happening and it was 93 degrees?

Slowly (as happens everynight) I start to warm up and my temperature eventually worked it's way up to 98 again after about an hour and a half of me shivering.....and then I get so sleep I can't keep my eyes open and have to go to bed.

if anyone else gets this let me know!

PS afterthought, or could it be related to my thyroid medication/condition I wonder?

temperature drop after dinner, anyone else?

This is a symptom I have had for years. It eventually got better, but it was severe when I first got sick with CFIDS and FM. The only way I was able to warm my self up was to take a hot bath. Sometimes I'd just dangle my feet in a tub of warm water.

Along with this, for me, came an inability to tolerate heat. It seems to be, again for ME, a problem with my body thermostat. I get heat stroke quickly and at other times my temperature is so low it does not register on a home thermometer.

freezing cold after dinner

Dear Gidge,

I have the same problem. I take thyroid medication for hypothyroidism too. I think it might be related to that. For me it seems best to listen to my body. A hot bath really helps. Then I sleep more comfortably too. In the morning I feel okay again. I have to accept my limits. Anyway, you're not alone.

Hey ((Gidge))
Unless I have a fever/infection my normal body temp fluctuates between 96-97 degrees...it never did this until after my Hyst Like ((Joelle)) I too have FMS/CFS...there is a connection between FMS & temperature. I can no longer tolerate any extreme change in temp
I'll be interested to hear from others w/ either FMS or a Thyroid condition as you & ((Monalees)) have

I'm sorry you experiencing yet another symptom

Ladies, what is FMS/CMS???? I don't mean to be a doe doe here but I was just wondering.........

After I had my hysterectomy (in May) I had this same problem. Well, to back up a little bit.... I guess it started before my surgery, but my symptoms got much worse after my surgery. I always get very cold after I eat. This is especially true, I have found, if I have not been paying attention to my diet and have gone for quite a while without eating and also doing something strenious. Before my surgery it was usually just my hands that would get unbearably cold, the rest of me would feel a little cold too, but not intolerable. Then, after my surgery, (after I would eat) I would get so cold that my whole body would shake. It would just exhaust me and I would try to lay down but I just couldn't get warm. The only way I could warm back up was to stand in a boiling hot shower for several minutes. It was really weird. This didn't happen to me every time I ate but it did happen quite a few times, and now I am back to just getting a little cold sometimes like I did before I had my surgery. This also happens to my mom and we have talked about it on more than one occasion. I also wonder if it has anything to do with blood sugar or just being worn out and tired or both. I have had my Thyroid checked a couple of times but it always comes back ok, but I have often wondered if there is some other reason I don't know about that could be causing this. I have been checked for diabetes too, and there again my levels appear normal. My dr. doesn't seem too concerned about it, but I'll have to admit it does bug me. So Ladies what is this FMS/CMS you are talking about........now I am very curious........

Thanks a bunch

what is FMS/CMS

Hi ((Val)),
FMS is an abbreviation for Fibromyalgia..it is a syndrome w/ a clear reason for onset & no cure It is defined from ruling out other diseases that carry similar symptoms and displaying widespread bodywide pain for 3-6 months, 11 of 18 trigger points..it carries a whole slew of symptoms. It is often seen in patients having incurred some physical trauma such as car accident or surgery & is related to a Hormonal Imbalance. I will include some links at the bottom describing it better CFS or CFIDS is short for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome...it is commonly found in FMS patients & carries a hormonal connection as well. Here is an article describing it better:

What is fibromyalgia?
Fibromyalgia is a common and disabling disorder affecting 2-4% of the population, women more often than men. Despite the condition's frequency, the diagnosis is often missed. Patients with fibromyalgia usually ache all over, sleep poorly, are stiff on waking, and are tired all day. They are prone to headaches, memory and concentration problems, dizziness, numbness and tingling, itching, fluid retention, crampy abdominal or pelvic pain and diarrhea, and several other symptoms. There are no diagnostic lab or x-ray abnormalities, but physician can confirm the diagnosis by finding multiple tender points in characteristic locations. Fibromyalgia often runs in families, suggesting an inherited predisposition. It may lie dormant until triggered by an injury, stress, or sleep disturbance. It is closely related to the chronic fatigue and irritable bowel syndromes.
Here are some links to websites contain info on both:

Hope this helps ((hugs))

Me Too...


I'm not sure if this happens to me after I eat - but it most certainly does happen in the evening. I have never taken my temp., but will try this the next time it happens.

I too cannot tolerate heat or cold, and was told by my doc that the FM/CFS is to blame. I used to be able to be outside for hours on a hot sunny / summer day. Now I must wear a hat, and can only be out for short periods of time.

I also have Raynaud's Syndrome and have a hard time when it is really cold outside - or even being in the freezer area of the grocery store Gosh we are quite the bunch here eh?!

((((Gidge)))) I also have RLS, and I am not aware of this being one of the symptoms...But it may be I am sending you many S Please let us know if you find anything out about this...

Hey Jude good to hear from ya, and everyone else too of course !!!

I don't know what's going on with me but it's not getting any better I am hoping the sleep dr will have some input if he ever calls me in to go over my sleep study results........no call about the bladder/bowel MRI (it's been three months almost) and no call back from eye specialist about the tests she's ordered and that was over a week ago.......

Hey ((Judy)) so you experience this too...I'm betting it's Hormonal which would explain why we experience this Post-Hyst FMS, CFS, Thyroid problems are all Hormonal as well so that would make sense...I'm gonna do some digging around & see what/if I can find anything. I'll post here if I do

I have Rhaynauds also Judy. Having my hands exposed to cold brings about some pretty intense burning pains along w/the colr change<sigh> Oh yeah, I also have RLS & I dont see it being related either...

((((((Gidge)))))) & ((((((Sheri))))))

Strange eh? Sheri my dear, it does sound hormonal and what you say makes sense. I'll be curious to read what you are able to dig up - If anyone can find the info - it is you

Gidge, Hun I'm sorry you are not getting any answers. Perhaps you should call the dr's to see if they have the results in yet. If you bug them enough I'm sure they'll get back to you. It's pretty pathetic that you have to do that - but boy can I relate.

I'm also having some recent troubles with my eyes, and think it's time to get some glasses. This is strange for me as I've had 20/20 vision all of my life. Please let us know what you find out sweetie.

S for all of my sisters on the road...
