I have had what seems to be 2 mild cases of hypothermia in two weeks. The
first one was explainable, 6 hours outside selling girl scout cookies in
below 10 degree weather with only one 3 minute defrost time. The second,
I'm not sure if was another case, because I didn't think I really got THAT
cold. I was in a flannel shirt inside the scout building where no one
remembered to switch on the heat. I felt myself getting cold and checked
the heat immediately, but I'm sure the room didn't have enough time to
really warm up while we were there. Everyone else seemed fine.
My question is, once you are exposed and get hypothermia does this increase
your chances to get it again? I have read out on the net and can find no
references to repeated cases.
I'm wondering if the second was really hypothermia or perhaps a virus I
was fighting off, because it took me longer to get over this time, the
muscle aches were worse, as well as a pain in the head (no my daughter was
not in the room!).
Any ideas on this?
