At 45, have ET, and I've been putting my steadily increasing hot flushes down to the menopause. My periods stopped over 6 years ago. However, 'they' don't seem to think that is what it
Besides, usually a hot flush caused by hormones wouldn't give you an ACTUAL raised temperature, you just FEEL hot.
Mine has been going up for a couple of years now. I'd get a flush, be drenched, and my temp is 37.5. Recently though, it has been even worse at 38.1 degrees. It isn't an infection because it is transient.
It makes me feel horrible; I feel breathless and my heart pounds. It also keeps skipping beats. The ectopics I've had for years, but lately, they are much much worse. I've had a 24 hour ecg, but waiting for a referral for the results is a joke. I've also lost a bit of weight and am having an increase in my migraines. I did have a phaeochromocytoma many years ago.
Does anyone else get these symptoms? I tried asking my haematologist, but she just said to stop taking my temperature. Great advice!! I feel like c*** and am worried, and she says that? God bless the NHS!
Can anyone offer words of wisdom? Thank you my lovelies x
