    I regularly get cold flushes in my legs & that is the sign that I am really tired. Even to the point I have to collapse where I stand.
    No one has ever understood this. Others always talk about hot flushes.

    Anyone else get cold flushes?

    The only other time in my life I got cold flushes, before I had CFS, was when I stayed awake all night one when I stayed out overnight as a 14 year old. The cold flushes were a physical nudge from my body to rest.

    I am not sure I can explain it any other way!
    Its like coolness shooting up from ankles to the tops of my thighs, through all muscle & blood cells.

    Do your legs shake when you feel you are about to collapse? The only experience I have had of this was many years ago, in my early 20's. I suddenly became very weak and my legs started to shake. I barely made it to my bed and once there my whole body went icy cold inside, especially along the spine. The ice coldness along my spine really scared me and then about 5-10 seconds later (could have been longer) I went from icy cold to very hot. It all passed within about a minute or two.
