I was so afraid yesterday when I woke up because I was shivering and I don’t know why. I felt so cold all over that I decided to get up and wear sweater and socks. But that was not enough. I was still shaking so I got some blanket and wrapped up my self. I still can’t control my shivering. We’re only using 1 electric fan that’s set to number 3. It’s the first time that I experienced the shivering, and it was not even cold. The room temperature was just few degrees lower than 30° C. But I felt as if I am in a winter land. My hands were numb as if I have just touched an ice.
My sister said I was too hot to touch, my body temperature was 39° C. I took one paracetamol and drink lots of lukewarm water. Sean even said, “Mommy ang init mo, pwedeng magluto sa face mo!” 😀
I don’t know what may have caused the quivering. I had warm body massage the other day at SM in a massage chair. When I was through, Sean said he wanted to pee. I accompanied him to the comfort room and washed his and my hand. I didn’t even think I should have not washed my hand immediately after the massage. Back at home, even if I felt tired, I managed to post here since it’s been a week since my last post. I slept at around 2 AM. I woke up at 6:00 AM and slept again. At 8 AM I was awakened by the chilly feeling and trembling.
They said what happened to me might be pasma. But I really don’t believe in pasma. According to Wikipedia
Pasma is attributed to an interaction of “init” (heat) and “lamig” (cold). Under certain conditions, the body’s muscles (kalamnan) are said to be “hot” and should not be too quickly brought into contact with “cold,” in this case usually meaning cold water or air from a fan or air conditioner.
Until now, I still feel unpleasantly cold at times with less shivering than yesterday. Before, I can’t stand the heat. I would always open a fan. But nowadays, I can manage without it. I just wish I get over this chilly feeling soon.
What do you think, is this pasma or not?
