I do feel the cold more since I was diagnosed with polymyalgia. (Also have osteoarthritis) I have an electric blanket under my fitted bottom sheet, turn it up high so that my bed is warm when I retire. I sleep with duvet and blanket. My greatest regret. is that I no longer can bring myself to wrap up warm and take out the dog to the river. The wind is so much worse in winter cold weather, however, I do make myself go out twice a week to volunteer jobs (inside), go to the grocery store and book club. It is important to be active and socialize. It is part of treatment for the ailment.

Hello noosat1 my name is Beryl and I recognize everything you say
As the PMR leaves a place in the body the cold stops effecting that part of ie. i started off with all of my body effected now it is only my legs. I can be hot at the top and feeling the cold in my legs and then the pain starts. You are doing the right thing at bedtime. Hope you get well again soon. Beryl
