Q *Why Am I Always Chilly?*

your thyroid function tested recently, it would be worth your while to ask
your physician to test you - all that's required is drawing some blood. In
addition, be sure to get your complete blood count done. You could be
anemic, another possible explanation for feeling cold. If both tests are
normal, here are some other possibilities to consider:
