Turkish man feels cold in scorching summer due to odd health condition
A man in Turkey’s capital Ankara says he gets frozen to the marrow even in the hot summer months.
Hasan Yücel, an 80-year-old pensioner from Ankara’s Bala district, said he’s been suffering from the problem for six years.
After working in the Netherlands for 30 years, Yücel returned to his hometown in 1998. He suffered from a cardiac problem in 2012, which led to a bypass operation that he said was the source of the ongoing physical oddity.
“I’ve been freezing for the past six years. Even in summers, I wear heavy coats and heat up my house,” the man told Demirören News Agency.
Yücel added that many doctors examined him but could not figure out a solution.
“They all said I am fine. But I don’t know what to do. I get frozen to the marrow during these summer days,” he added.
The man’s son, Hakan Yücel, confirmed the pensioner’s problem of feeling chilly.
“My mother cannot help. He constantly asks us to put more wood in the heating stove. He wears winter clothes in the summers. His problem gets worse particularly in daytime,” he said.
