Why would a certain part of a person's body feel freezing cold when the rest of them is comfortable?

I have a spot about the size of my hands right in the middle of my back that is constantly cold, almost painfully so, even though overall I'm quite comfortable.  This time of year only direct heat, like a heating pad, seems to take away that cold spot.  I'm currently wearing a t-shirt, thermal underwear, and a sweatshirt.

For me, it's a spot just above my left butt cheek, near my spine, about the size of my fist.   My cold spot is caused by nerve damage from herniating L4, L5, and just general issues with sciatica.

I knew one person that had MS that caused her to have similar problms, two with Fibro, and one guy that had a tumor that was growing around his spine. I'd urge you to ask your doctor about it just to rule out something more serious than a pinched nerve.

Seconding that urge. I have permanently cold spots caused by fibro.

I also have fibro, and I'm afraid that sooner or later I'm going to miss something really significant because I've just assumed that it's another random symptom off the fibro 'laundry list.'  :(

I'm never sure if twinges are arthritis, muscle strains because I've been walking oddly because of the arthritis, IBS, or medication reactions.  :P  I also get to wonder if I'm just 'down' or actually depressed, and if I'm depressed is THAT a medication reaction too?

Heh, my Dad and I say the same thing, paraphrased: "You couldn't make one good one out of the two of us".

It can be horribly difficult having an overarching health condition and not knowing if some new symptom is just related to that or something you need to worry about, so I sympthasise with everyone going through this.

The only dressy dress I own is this one:
,
is it appropriate for a summer wedding? (there's no church component in this wedding).
I have absolutely no idea what I can wear with it if I need to (july wedding so the temperature shouldn't be a problem I guess), do I need to plan for it?
The famillies are not conservatives so bare shoulders shouldn't be a problem but I'd like to be prepared just in case.

I think it is a lovely dress for a summer wedding.  If you should need a coverup of some sort, a little white cardigan or even a white shawl would be fine.
After cleaning out my Dad's house, I have this advice:  If you haven't used it in a year, throw it out!!!!.

It would be lovely for a casual summer wedding but I don't think it would do if it is a formal affair. The cut of the top and the stripes limit how much it can be dressed up, as does the fabric (I imagine it is some kind of cotton).

I'd say if the men who attend this wedding will be wearing suits, then the dress isn't formal enough, but if there will be attendees in smart casual wear, you're good.  When in doubt, it's always possible to ask the HC directly (or whoever connects you to them if you're not familiar enough to contact them directly).

This.  Get a white shrug/shawl/cardigan/whatnot and the whole thing will look dressier.  Pair it with classy shoes/jewelry and you're good to go for anything except a particularly formal wedding.
