Is it normal when your body is cold for my pee to be colder that what it normally is. Also my penis is quite cold. Is it normal?

Likely normal: As long as everything is functioning properly, it sounds normal. When you are cold overall, your body tries to pull heat from the areas farthest from your heart, which is why your hands and feet typically get cold first. Since the penis is sticking out from the body, it can also become cold too. Now if you are having pain, discoloration, or anything else unusual, certainly see a physician. ...Read more

Is it possible that someone could be hyperventilating when nervous and not even realize it? If so, how does this work in the body?

Fight or flight: When we come under threat or feel nervous our fight or flight response kicks in heartrate and respiration rate increase and along with a narrowing of vision or focus on the threat we can become less aware of our breathing, only making it all worse - the classical cure for that is taking some long deep breaths, holding, exhaling slowly, holding, long deep breath. ...Read more

When you have pneumonia will it be very obvious? Will the chest pain be really bad? How high is the fever if a teen has it? How hard is it to breathe?

My elderly mother has for years reported that she is cold (not just in winter) when it doesn't seem to me to be cold. I always do something to warm her up. Is this only a peripheral problem? If her temperature were taken would it be likely to be low?

My elderly mother has for years reported that she is cold (not just in winter) when it doesn't seem to me to be cold. I always do something to warm her up. Is this only a peripheral problem? If her temperature were taken would it be likely to be low?

See an MD: With her age, it is best to get blood tests (check for anemia, thyroid problems, kidney/liver function especially if on medications). She also needs a physical exam to check her peripheral circulation. It may be related to being thin and frail in elderly patients or a medication she is on. Temperature in elderly patients is not always accurate or reliable. Best to see an MD. ...Read more
