silver, i can totally relate to you so you're not alone. this just seems to be a normal thing with UC.
i was getting night sweats for a while- just from having inflammation- makes me really hot in general. prednisone and c diff make it even worse. i still wear shorts going out places because i am like a heater. i just never get cold... except when i wake up from the night sweats drenched and the fan is blowing on them. then i start shivering haha it's like a lose lose situation.
my doctor has done a bunch of thyroid tests because he knows about my "heat intolerance." i don't have this problem so much anymore but i would always carry ice packs with me.
i remember earlier this year in february, i was just out of the hospital on antibiotics for c diff and i needed to open a new bank account. i went into the bank with my water, ice packs, tank top, and shorts. the lady helping me wanted to show me all this stupid crap i didn't need and these different types of accounts. since it was february, they had cranked the heat up so high and i was already sweating buckets just driving to the bank. after about 30 minutes of hell, i was almost hanging my head off of the lady's desk. i was also severely anemic at the time (had 2 blood transfusions a week before) and i just told her to i needed to leave if it was going to take any longer. when i got out of the door, i just stood there for a few minutes in the snow. i'm actually surprised i didn't just jump in it and start making snow angels.
God, this is exactly how I am. I don't sweat more than other people during the day, but I constantly feel hot. My thyroid is fine (checked it), and my blood works are usually ok, but I cant tolerate heat at all. I am
opening windows wide in the middle of winter, and enjoying the cold while everybody else is complaining and shivering in the background. My hands and feet never get cold. I could walk through Siberia in swimming trunks. During the summer I am totally useless, crawling around like a snake because the heat exhausts me to the point my mind is all blurred. Could it be that we can't tolerate heat because our immune system is overstimulated?
P.S. I know its not funny, but I couldnt help but laugh so much about
the snow angels. :D
