Why does my body seen out of sync with the actual temperature?

Temperature discomforts and sleep

One thing that interferes with sleep - and daily life as well - is the unpredictable changes in body temperature that seem to occur with fibro patients. Use natural fiber bedding, as it will allow your skin to breathe and not trap sweat. A light down blanket or comforter and a sheet should do the trick most of the year, as it seems to adjust to body temperatures easily. During the day, dress in layers that you can put on or take off as needed.

If you live in a hot climate, the air conditioner clicks on and off all night causing a temperature fluctuation. Use a ceiling fan set on low to offset this fluctuation.

I find cotton to be the best comfort for clothing and bedding. Anything with other fibers causes me to have more heat. And using a fan as the tip suggests does work.
