Does hypothyroid conditions affect the body temperature and possibly cause a type of heat stroke or exhaustion and cause the body to sweat excessively and uncontollably. A temperature of 97.9 was registered, but the entire body was abnormally hot coupled with excessive sweating asnd checked by a general practioner who diagnosed that there was no type of infection, such as a flu type bug. Any explanations?
Normally one of the symptons of the condition is a low body temperature and hot flashes(sweating). You should get a good doctor that will explain these things to you or look it up online.If the doctor puts you on the right meds, you should improve. If not, get another doctor.
also when your thyroid is out of wak it does not like you to expose yourself to different temperatures. if you go in the sun, your thyroid which is not well, and regulates your body temp, you will heat up above normal, and feel sick, like sunstroke, or heat exhaustion, same if you go out in the cold!
Its like your regulator is broken!
i was born w/o a thyroid gland and have been on synthroid my whole life (i am currently 26). for the past 10 years, i have been experiencing very strange type seizures. sometimes i'll get then 1 or 2 times a week, but sometimes i'll go a month without one, but when i finally have one again, it is very bad. when i am sleeping, i overheat and wake up and within a minute or two am seizing. the pain is intense and breathing is VERY difficult. after the seizure i am able to cool down and then i get VERY cold. soon after i fall back to sleep and am unable to wake up for around 2 hours. it causes severe headaches and recently my right arm doesn't work normally for up to 8 hours after the seizure (can't grasp or lift arm). after awhile i can use the arm again, but it is still very very sore. i have been to several doctors and they can't figure out what is wrong. i don't have epilepsy and anti-seizure medications haven't helped. can anyone help me??
