I wanted to know if anyone else gets like I do and if they have been diagnosed with anything for this complaint?
I often get cold atleast a few times a month it happens.....usually after I eat.I havent been able to pin point what food or foods it happens with.....it just seems to happen when it wants NOT SURE of any particulars.When it does happen though Its usually occasional, usually about 2 weeks after my period,and usually within 15 to 20 minutes after eating and I get real tired.
I was On the Body Ecology Diet in the Past and dont really know all of my issues.Im trying to do much homework on my own before my appt with a new MD/ND in March.
When I tried that diet, (and it was a lot of healthy eating) I kinda felt more tired,actually exhausted.I didnt get it......I felt worse eating real healthy. :( If anyone can help me it would be greatly appreciated
I am going to see an Endocrinologist tomorrow,I dont know what it will be worth.
I had TSH for the thyroid tested and they say Its normal
Dont know what else to do

I was told (by my DH and doc) that the reason you get cold after eating is because (especially if you eat a lot) all the blood is going to your middle, to help with the digestion process, and that means less blood flow/energy in the rest of the body. I get cold after eating ALL the time!

I get cold after I eat a big meal sometimes when I'm a little tired or run down and I've eaten a really big meal. At least once a week. My problem is that when my body gets too cold, it triggers some wierd response where all the fluid in my system starts draining out, so I have to pee every 1/2 hour for the rest of the day. So I try not to let myself get too cold after a big meal! Very wierd.

TSH testing is almost useless if you get tested by a normal doc. The range of "normal" TSH levels is absolutely ridiculous. You can research that. I've known a few different people who have very talented specialists that very finely tune the TSH medication. They said that unless their thyroid medication was extremely fine tuned they say they would be "completely off" and it would not help them.

I feel your pain about getting cold after a meal. Sometimes I do and sometimes I don't. I'm not completely satisfied that it is only just the extra blood flow going to the digestive system. I think there may be more to it. I"m no expert but I think it might be a possibility that a small allergic reaction (and I have many food sensitivities that range in severity) could cause the body to exhibit the same symptoms as that of being sick. When the body is sick it is using all resources to fight the infection, and I'm thinking an autoimmune response can be the same.

I think it is very interesting the connections involved here. The Thyroid and Adrenals regulate metabolism, body temperature, and stress. The Thymus is a sight for a large percentage of the body's immune response. I'm not expert on anatomy or physiology but I've heard some say the Thyroid is just the sac that sits on top of the Thymus. I would like to find out if there is interaction with the thyroid by the thymus or vice versa in the process of metabolism or food digestion.

I know this post is older, but I have not been on the forum in some time and I just starting to reacquaint myself.

I get super cold after I eat something to which I am intolerant: gluten and dairy (and apparently oats). It is a major, systemic "allergic" response for me: bone-chilling cold accompanied by joint pain and a low grade fever. It has taken years to figure that is the first signal. It feels like I have the flu, and all I can do is get under a few blankets and try to sleep it off. It may last a few hours or all day depending on the type of exposure I have had.

My celiac tests and biopsy were negative, but I have been gluten and dairy free now for just over a year. It is now very clear that the cold symptom is directly tied to my food intolerances.
