What does it feel like to freeze to death? (The feelings before you die, of course)

Eddie:

you would have a wonderful feeling of warmth, starting in your toes and fingers and spreading to your center. you would fall asleep and wake up dead.
(people who have drowned in cold water and then been revived report this sensation. It is actually the lack of ability to feel the cold, than actual warmth. When a person dies, the body tries to conserve life by withdrawing support from the extremities to concentrate on the organs vital to life -- heart, lungs, kidneys etc. I have seen this in the hospital where I worked. One patient had an internal fever of 106, yet his feet were ice-cold. He did not live long after that. )

Eddie:

another example: a person who was being beaten about the head later reported that they lost all sensation in their hands, feet -- then arms, legs --finally the body and head. (total blackout)
In the olden days, the country doctors often took hold of a dying patient's toes to see if they were cold. It was a good way to see how near death they were.

Matt11340:

Nothing, you would be completely numb.

Ede:

I've heard that you feel warm and stop shivering, before you die.

Matt11340:

only one way to find out...you first

Jonz:

BILLYKID:

Ya got MY vote, dear.

Sparklee:

You feel relaxed and comfortable. You feel a calmness come over you. You aren't freezing anymore .You have frost bite all over your body and your numb .You could cut off your leg and you wouldn't feel it. You wouldn't do that though because you are so peaceful. You hallucinate and see the ocean on a hot summer day. You imagine that's where you are .After you go through the terrible freezing part it all changes to being calm and peaceful.

BILLYKID:

Two friends of mine, saved me from freezing to death, about 32 years ago, back East. They came into my mobile home, and saw that I wasn't moving, due to having no heating oil in my tank, and carried me across the street to a small restaurant. I came to, after about 30 minutes, and wondered how I got there. THEN, knowing I had no money for fuel, they went out and filled my fuel tank, and got my heater going again. One of them is an old Hells Angel, and the other is a Deputy. Both are named Tom, by the way! These buddies saved my life that day. Talk about a near death experience!

BILLYKID:

Needless to say, I didn't feel anything.

Ede:

Doesn't really answer the question though, what did it feel like?

Ede:

Sparklee:
