Hi all I was just wondering if anybody had had similar problems with their body temperature. It's getting warmer here in Alaska and my body had decided to go from hot to cold with chills back and forth all day and it's driving me crazy.
That's happening to me. I get chills and heat waves all the time because my body has circulation problems due to crps/rsd. I usually carry a blanket with me and if I'm too hot will drink a ton of water. It helps a little bit.
YES, this is happening to me as well. Mine is also due to age, menopause and hypothyroidism. It isn't easy. I dress cool because I overheat and then keep a quilt nearby so when I get cold I throw it over me. It gets really frustrating when I get cold and hot at the same time and don't know whether to take the blanket off or leave it on. I hope your doctor can help you and tell you what is causing the problem. Perhaps an issue with your thyroid is causing it. I hope that you feel better... Alaska.. BRRRRR!!! :c)
I get hot and cold and sometimes both at the same time. I too have hypothyroidism but was typically just hot. This past year my fibro has gotten worse I I thought that had something to do with body temperature. I am the crazy lady in shorts and a tee shirt with a coat that goes to my thigh.
Many things contribute to body temperature, but I don't think any one is too young to have temperature issues. I had body temperature issues (that I can remember) sound I was 9. I'm 14 now and the got and cold is frustrating sometimes, but it is easier to deal with than a lot of other symptoms.
Ahh yes just love it when I'm sweating and freezing at the same time! Lol but for me this is better than it used to be believe it or not. There was a time when I would be bundled up in sweatshirt with a winter coat mittens hat the whole 9 yards heat blasting in the car and still was shivering so much I would be wrapped in a blanket on top of all of that. My husband would warm up the car for 10 min first and still I was freezing. Yet at the same time I could be sweating as though I had been working out for an hour. Armour Thyroid helped and so did an essential oil cm called EndoFlex and some adrenal supplaments. Then treating the underlying source helped too of course it just hasn't been completely treated unfortunately. Oh and particularly summer but any time hot and sweating is the problem a little spray bottle with witch hazel with or without essential oil added is great. Just give a spritz whenever you need it. Keeping the spray bottle in the fridge is good too. I have a few of those little personal ones and keep one in my purse one in the fridge and one in the bedroom or livingroom.
I remember getting heat flashes along my neck. I would run out side when it was below freezing temperature and stay out there until I was shivering. At night, I go from freezing to feverish every few seconds. It is probably because of circulation issues, but I always try to have a heating pad and two comforters, plus ceiling heat. That way I'll be hot for most of the night. My dad and I both sweat to get rid of temporary illnesses. T
I do the same thing... I sleep in summer pj's and have a quilt next to me and have the window open. Fortunately, there isn't anyone in my room that I need to worry about except the ferret, which I give extra bedding to so she doesn't get a chill.
I get hot and cold waves as well. Mine is associated with Fibromyalgia though. My body has never been able to maintain proper homeostatic thermoregulation. My average body temp is 97.5 F and when I get overheated, I pass out instead of sweat to cool my body naturally. It's annoying. I find that dressing in layers helps to be able to quickly adapt to personal temperature fluctuations. And in in the summer, I avoid the outdoors unless there is shade or a pool.
I have the same situation with trying to regulate my body temperature. I have a average body temperature of 97.0 and I overheat very easily. I am overweight but I know other folks who have the same issues that are average or thin build so I know my weight is not the issue. My doctor said it's not weight related either. I dress very lightly all year long and keep a blanket handy. when I am chilled I put the blanket on and then when I start to overheat, I take it off... I never know what to do when I get cold and hot at the same time. It is a horrible way to have to be.
Since adding the liothyronine to the levothyroxine for my thyroid, my temp regulation is haywire! I suddenly flush red from my chest up and will be pouring sweat down through my hair. I've lowered the thermostat and my hubby says I'm freezing him! Lol, I told him he can add clothes but I can only take off so many. Then last night I got cold enough to pull up a blanket on the bed. Crazy! 😰
