I am a 19 year old female living in the UK. I am all well and healthy besides having ME/CFS. For as long as I can remember I have had an awful lot of trouble controlling my body temperature.
As a child, I used to go to bed and wake up soaking wet as a result from sweating, even wearing short pyjamas and sleeping with the window open.
Still now, even in winter, I have to sleep with a thin sheet, have the window open and on occassions sleep with a fan, but still struggle to get to sleep due to feeling too hot. I will often wake up in sweats like I did as a child too.
It's not just when I sleep too, it's whenever I am inside, I have to wear minimal clothing else I just end up sweating through it.
I find it almost impossible to put on weight, too, which I have put down to the amount of heat which my body produces. I am 5ft10 and weigh 9stone.
I have had several blood tests which have ruled out thyroid problems, all my results were normal besides ANA, which was positive (though lots of people have positive ANA and are healthy) though this was never further investigated.
Does anyone have anything similar to this or could give any information as to whether this could be thyroid related as I have really just had enough of feeling hot all of the time.
