YES!!! Now that you mention it, I used to get chills and felt cold all 
the time regardless of the temperature in the house. In the summers, I 
felt like I was roasting to death if it ever got above 20 C/70 F. Now 
that I'm taking melatonin, my body temperature feels quite nice and much 
more normal.
