Sooo... I think I am allergic to cold if this can even be a thing!

End of November I returned walking from my endocrinologist appointment back home. In the middle of the walking I sat on a cold bench. When I returned back home I was itching in my outer part of thighs and ass... basically where you sit. It was like big mosquito bites. I saw them to my mother as I thought they were indeed some kind of bug bite. She told me it’s allergy and I was like nah... can’t be.

Then after that every day after walking out in the cold I would be getting all red and itchy. I made an appointment with an allergiologist, I was taking antihistamines and cortisone for 10days then went back to him said yay no allergy and then he started food tests. While in his office all the spots he checked were negative. I went home and by the time I reached home I had all the spots swollen and red like giant bug bites and also my legs were red and itchy too. After that day I again have allergy every day I am out and on the spots of my body they are cold the most. I started to wear two jackets, sweater and my blouse with gloves every time I go out yet my thighs are the most exposed parts of my body and they are red by the time I get home. A friend of mine send me an article about a girl in Canada that she is allergic to cold and my friend told me that this could be my allergy too...
I think this is so surreal but so annoying and omg the itchiness is so much... I won’t stand to take more cortisones I already freaked out once that I had to take them while supposed to lose weight I don’t want to get anything back.
Snap on my body, get real and fix this mess you made 😂😂
Sorry for the long post... but this is a new lvl of “feeling the cold” I had to share my rant with you 💜

Is there anyone else that experienced something similar or knows someone similar ?

You can be allergic to cold. Google cold urticaria. I know someone who has it. Hope you're ok!

I am effing freezing in SoCal all the time!!! I’ve lost all my excess weight, super happy, 17 mos out, but that fat was really keeping me warm in colder weather! You will see me in ski jackets in the morning and evening. And I need a third duvet on my bed, my room is so cold.

ah well, I’d rather be thin and gather blankets and sweaters...

Anyone else freezing?

@Separ1418

this is a question that has plagued the world for centuries!!😊

after losing a lot of weight, i get it that "you" have less body fat, thus causing you to be cold

some OP as little as 2 weeks PO say they are cold, i don't get it, understand?? (most have have not lost a lot of weight yet) @Separ1418 great weight loss - 70 lbs!!

btw 105 lb weight loss here - never cold due to WLS

bundle up

keep up the good work

I went from being someone who was hot all the time pre-surgery to someone who freezes constantly now that I'm down ~100 pounds. It turns out that for me there is a fine line between "comfortable" and "ice cube" and that line is about 73 degrees.

I've been so cold this winter that I bought a scarf for the first time in years, and between my birthday and Christmas (four days apart), I was given a sweater for work (where I use a space heater every day) and not one, not two, but THREE electric blankets. One for my bed, one for the living room, and one that plugs into the cigarette lighter in the car.

I googled that and it looks a lot like what I am getting... I asked my alergiologist if that could be my case he said it could but he is still running all food and blood tests to be on the safe side...
Lets see what happens next ! :)

Oh my I never knew that it was so complex, thought it was just a lack of fat insulation.

I’m not looking forward to being cold all the time but the upside is that it gets to be well over 100 in the summer and at least I won’t be miserable like I usually am. Also my husband will be happy not having 2 fans going in our bedroom even in the winter

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
