why am i hot all the time?
0

Could someone please give me some ideas of what to do? I am HOT all the time, except when I am sitting directly in the breeze of a fan or AC. To do just the simplest thing, like wash a few dishes or make my bed in the morning causes me to sweat profusely. And I always feel hot, like inside. I had a hysterectomy last year, was have been having problems with being extreemly hot all the time even before the hyster. My doctor says that he can put me on hormones which will decrease the sweating and being hot a great deal. But I am afraid of hormones because I know 2 people who have died of cancer because of taking such medication. So with this info, I am sure you all can imagine that when I am working out I am REALLY HOT and SWEATY. I am just miserable all the time. From the time I get up till I go to bed. Does anybody know of anything which will help me not be so HOT all the time? I often take 2 showers everyday, but still do not feel clean because of all the sweat. Please help!!!

After I had chemo - I had hot flashes really bad. My doc put me on a anti-depressant called efforx (something like that) It really work for me. I was only on it for six months then went off. I really control mine by excercise and diet. Carbs for ones. I hope that helps. Good luck.

FYI The reason it is called a PRACTICE, is because usually it is guess work anyways! I mean typically a doc sees you for a meager 4 minutes. They are actually trying to lower that time as well. My question is how the hell does he know anything about me except the results of a few labs, compared to other people on a graph?
Yes quid pro quo will line up, but there are a few freaks. Including me! That you can't look at typical results.
Bottom Line if you have a question of any kind ask that doc, butt in, walk in, text email, whatever you have to do to get the results that you are looking for, its your health not the doc! If you cannot get answers, or you don't like results or outcomes, get 2nd, 3rd, and even 4th opinions. Change Docs if you must! Your old doc has to send over all medical records for you!

Body temperature regulation generally points to either thyroid issues or menopause. Have you had your thyroid levels checked?

Given this temperature problem, and the fact that you're constantly hungry, it might be time for a full physical with bloodwork. Have you had a regular check-up with your physician recently?

Hormone replacement therapy does typically work quite well for menopausal symptoms, but it is a hotly debated topic these days. That said, it sounds like your doctor is comfortable prescribing HRT?

Let me know!!

My Aunt also had a Hysterectomy and her hormones were all messed up after she had it. Once the doctor did perscribe her hormones, she hasn't had any problems since. So it worked for her. I also recommend having a full physical if you haven't had one lately. Hope you can find something that works. Good Luck!!!

What is the thyroid panel called that tests in more detail for thyroid problems, anyone know? When I have a standard thyroid test it always comes back within the normal range. I am now getting worse with the heat, sweating issues. I went through menopause 2 years ago so that's not it.

RIBS,

Thank you for bringing this thread back up. It's been very interesting reading all the comments.

I'm curious to hear what the others have found out and what you are finding in your research.

I experience this sort of heating issue only when I eat animal products such as meat and dairy. The only time I dont sweat profusely and get overheated is when I stick to a mostly fruit and veggie diet and complex carbs. i feel a difference after only 2 days of eating differently. I think that I have inflammation all inside my body which causes the heat and you bring down inflammation with proper diet and exercise. A dont think you need to be a die hard vegan or anything, but cut out beef and pork and most dairy. Try not to eat ANY processed foods, nothing from the box or out of the freezer... this has helped me the most I think it stop consuming crap my body cant digest well...hope this helps!
