Basic background. I have experienced overheating for as long as I can remember. I'll be red faced and sweating when others are cool.
It's mostly in my head, face and neck but is now spreading down my body.
Yet still, while I feel that I'm dying with the heat, if anyone touches my body it feels cold and clammy. My symptoms are increasing and it's so hard to get medics to understand just how distressing this is, but I know others here will understand.
I have numerous medical conditions including high blood pressure, auto immune condition and degenerative back problems. I had significant hair loss some years back, which I think was a reaction to the stress of my other ailments. My hair has grown back but much thinner. I am also significantly overweight and can't seem to lose weight despite clearly not overeating. My weakness is fizzy drinks and juice.
However, my overheating started long before any of these conditions.
Gp recently prescribed pro banthine which has helped greatly and sometimes I feel almost normal. But I am having to increase the dosage for the same results and I'm concerned about its long term use.
I have just had yet another blood test, which doctor says is normal.
I don't know what to do with the information and I'm hoping that someone here can point me in the right direction or have any suggestions.
At its worse, like last night, I can't sleep, my pillow is drenched and I just don't know what to do with myself.
All help and advice will be gratefully received. Thank you!
