Quote on hypothermia:____________________Stage 1 Body temperature drops by 1-2°C (1.8-3.6°F) below normal temperature (35-37°C or 95-98.6°F). Mild to strong shivering occurs. The victim is unable to perform complex tasks with the hands; the hands become numb. Blood vessels in the outer extremities constrict, lessening heat loss to the outside air. Breathing becomes quick and shallow. Goose bumps form, raising body hair on end in an attempt to create an insulating layer of air around the body (which is of limited use in humans due to lack of sufficient hair, but useful in other species). Victim may feel sick to their stomach, and very tired. link End of quote__________________ (Google is your friend too, if you know what you're looking for and what to discard as irrelevant)

yeah definitely. I live up north and in the winter, it can be really harsh if you don t' bundle up. sometimes I visit family in Edmonton and you can literally swim in the snow. lol it's fun, but very cold...^_^
yes. cold water. hypothermia.cold air. can make your lungs hurt.
I do sometimes. If I'm really cold, I can't function at all and don't feel very well. It used to happen to me a lot in biology because my teacher was always hot, and she wouldn't let us put a wet paper towel on the thermastat. Not sure if that is what you mean.
