freezing cold

My father in law (on hospice since july and 'stable' so far) is experiencing a 'cold to the bone' feeling and can't seem to shake it. He doesn't have a fever....all vitals are normal. He stayed in bed all day today with PJ's, a robe, hat, mittens...electric blanket plugged in. Today is the first time he's not eaten all day either. I'm worried sick. This started on Thursday. Has anyone else had this experience?

I am really not sure what to think. Is your father in law on any new meds at all? That is the only thing that came to mind when I read your post..

Please keep us posted and I am sure someone else will be along with hopefully more information for you.

Hmmm definitely something to alert the docs too. I have never been so cold as I have been after being diagnosed. I figure it is to do with lower blood pressure and the combination of all the different chemos and drugs I have been on. Some days are worse than others. Not moving around alot does make it worse for sure. But if it has come on suddenly then I would think would be some cause for concern, so definitely follow it up.

my dad was cold like that. He had low blood pressure and he was always colder when he was dehydrated- always less cold when he was able to eat warm solid foods.

I'm sure meds have something to do with it too. I'd definitely call the hospice/doctor to let them know.
