Why I'm I always thirsty & hot?

I complain about being hot more than most people. I chew ice cubes as much as possible. My iron level is 9.1 & I am  usually constipated unless I have fiber in my meal. I have to get up 4 to 8 times a night to urinate. As well as frequently speeding to the restroom during the day 3 or more times. I always have to wear protection from leakage. I'm only 41. Now I have a fibroid that is so large it is probably putting pressure on my bladder. Are these things causing me to become dehydrated & do I need to worry about not drinking enough water? Is the ice good for me or bad for me. It certainly makes me feel better.

Hi there!

The ice would not really make a difference, its frozen water after all. Anyhow I assume you are talking about the haemoglobin level being 9.1 and not the serum iron levels. Well, without a clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms. Likely possibilities that may need to be considered include hormonal/ endocrine imbalances, micronutrient deficiencies, electrolyte imbalance, medication side effect etc. I would suggest getting this evaluated by a primary care physician initially and depending on the cause diagnosed/ suspected, it can be managed accordingly or specialist care may be sought.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
