This isnt a new problem...but it is something I really need to get under control. I have spent the past two winters not wearing a coat. I just become too hot. Now that it is May and temp is rising outside,my body temp is boiling! Everytime I get over heated my face goes numb/tingles...if I continue on being over heated,rather then cool myself down,then my hands and feet go numb/tingle.
My neurologist seemed to believe I have a thyroid problem and referred me back to my family Dr. I went in and he ran blood work. The office called back after a few days and said Dr wanted to do the bloodwork again-my T4 was elevated. I went back and re did bloodwork and as my results stand now..."borderline"...and to re-run blood work in 3 monthes!
I was very un happy with this answer...mostly because I will have to suffer again ALL summer,sitting indoors and not playing outside with my kids. I mean,I turn into a ball of sweat in 20 degrees with a foot of snow on the ground...so,you can imagine how I am in 80 degree weather. I can sit on my couch and sweat,not doing a thing.
So...I was scheduled to see my neuro in middle of June. I called and told them how my blood test went and my results. Also that just about everyday my face is going numb/tingling. They moved up my appointment,and I see him next week.
Is there something we are missing? Should we look at another cause for me being so hot? My neuro says we will trouble shoot once I am there and try to figure out WHY I am always sooo hot. Anyone else out there with this problem? What can I do?
