    Hi
    Yes I can relate to the heat issues. Once I get into cooler air I'm better. I too wake up in the middle of the night if I get hot.

    What I normally do is keep my house temp at 70. If it gets cold I can add more clothes or grab a throw. I keep a fan next to my bed if I end up getting hot. Also they have cooling vest that you can purchase to help in situations like that. Think about getting on so you can enjoy company.

    Good luck and God bless

    Hi Ireneliz,

    I can relate to your overheating issues, especially at night. I keep the thermostat down around 62 even in winter, and have a fan blowing on my face at night.

    Sounds as though you know what you need to do to get your body temp down. It's a constant battle, I know. Take good care.

    There are a lot of cooling neck wraps that look more like scarves, and are easily activated with water. They also stay cold for a long time which is helpful, especially for those of us who are very prone to overheating! Amazon.com has a lot of inexpensive options if you want an alternative to using rags
