Is It Common To Feel Cold All The Time With Ra

Since my RA diagnosis I feel cold all the time bur yet my skin is warm to touch. Is this common and if it is why

Answer

I don't know if it's in any of the scientific literature, but I always feel cold. That is... One of the painkillers I is Tylenol extra strength and I've noticed that it seems to warm me up a bit - when I don't take it, I feel colder.
