So sorry to hear this…it is just like starting over. You will find the strength and courage to face this challenge. My
Mom sleeps a lot and is always cold…,.,when we are out I keep a lined windbreaker in my “mom” tote just for when she feels cold.
My husband sleeps 14-16 hours a day gets out of bed to his recliner where he’ll nap during the day. He also gets cold a lot I got a heating blanket last year with separate heat remotes I turn his on about a half hour before he goes to bed. Since being diagnosed 5 years ago with Dementia he recently had a stroke which is like starting over.
My husband is always cold. He sits with a sweater and blankets on when it is over 80 in the house. I try to get him to take some of layers off because afraid he will get over heated but gave up. Tired there are some days he sleeps 18 hours or more. Was told this will be come normal. Started out maybe once a month about year ago now it is 4 or 5 days in a row. He wants to go to bed at 6:30 but I make him stay up to nine then doesn’t get up until 11:30 or 12 normal. On his bad days he doesn’t get up until 2pm and then naps most of the day. Also starting to sundown and pace in afternoon and evening. He is on meds so might be time for and increase.
I am never cold, but MY problem is spontaneous and profuse sweating, anytime day or night...a non motor function of my Parkinsons!
My husband is also always cold and tired. The doctor tested and he is anemic.
My husband is always cold. When he gets cold he starts to perspire heavily . This make it very difficult to go anywhere that he seems comfortable
Yes. I suffer the same and was diagnosed in 2017. I drink everything, even my diet coke with no ice and warm, like tea and juice. Anything cold makes us cold too. I am constantly tired so I just rest often and my husband keeps our activities to one a day and that helps alot. Sending hugs!
My husband is cold all the time too.
I was diagnosed in 2017 and I have the same problem. When we go out and run errands (we live in Texas) and I wear a sweatshirt people look at me like I'm crazy. I just smile and keep walking. It drives my husband crazy but we get through it. I guess it's just another fun thing to experience with this stupid disease! Stay strong, sending hugs!
Marilynne, I tried that. I told him several times that we always need to go to the bathroom before we go to bed. But, makes no difference. He won't try.....until he gets in bed and has to get back up and pee. I guess it's getting in the habit and he's in the habit of getting up and going to pee after he's been to bed.
