Hi, Friends: My 90-yr-old mother is always cold and she seems to be getting colder every day. We live together in Florida where it's still in the mid-80's. Although she would prefer to turn off the a/c and let the house get to 85 degrees, the system is set at 80 and she's still wearing a man's plaid flannel shirt buttoned to her neck.
She is not sedentary. She is up walking almost constantly as she thinks of things that she needs to do so I assume her blood is circulating fairly well. She takes only BP meds and is otherwise healthy.
Is her "getting colder" issue normal, or a symptom of something more serious?
