Feeling "refrigerated" upon waking up?
      #233481 - 11/09/07 10:28 AM

This is another condition I have been suffering from for the last couple of years.

Every morning when I wake up, whether naturally (without the alarm-clock) or when the alarm pulls me out of sleep, I feel like "death". More accurately, I feel like I am in a freezer and that I am being pulled out of it into the day. My limbs feel "refrigerated" and my body feels "cold and grey" - despite the fact that the temperature in my bedroom is always comfortable.

This is something to do with the nerves throughout my body, I think. It's as if they were all trembling with cold, but, in fact, there is no movement of my limbs. It is just a sensation, a feeling. It's absolutely awful. It takes about two hours to shake off. And then it's completely gone.

Of course this never used to be the case before I began taking the medications which, thankfully, have kept all opportunistic infections at bay, my CD4 up, and my viral load undetectable. My medication consists of:

I can only imagine that in some people this early-morning "refrigerated" feeling is a result of one or all of the above three drugs.

Would anyone else who identifies with these side-effects please let me know.

Without a dream, life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly. Keep hold of your dreams.
