There can be a lot of reasons for this. When you are sick, you can feel cold even when your body temperature is higher than normal–chills with a fever. Various medications can cause you to feel cold, even if your body temp doesn’t change–blood thinners after surgery, for example. Chemotherapy patients often report an inability to stay warm as well. And when you are sick in bed all day, your large muscles are not producing as much heat as when moving around.
So what can be done about it?
Pile on the blankets or sweaters, wear fuzzy socks, drink hot liquids….all are helpful, but some options are better than others. (Read one customers comparison between a Snuggie and a Sleeve)
Our Sleepy Sleeve is made of a double layer of polar fleece, which will warm you or your patient up within minutes! In fact, we call it the “Ahhhh Factor”. Put it on and….wait for it…the exhale, the contented facial expression, the “Ahhhhhh!” And it is easier to put on than a sweater, which if you’ve just had surgery is a definite plus.
Sleeves cover the shoulders, neck, arms and hands, so tucking the covers up to the chin is no longer necessary–your arms and hands will be free to read or change the channel. You won’t know what you did without it, in fact, we have had more than one customer purchase another Sleeve to wear while the first one is in the laundry!
Let us help you change “always cold” to toasty warm!
