Hot, burning, stinging
Hi.

I have been experiencing symptoms consisting of: I get hot very easily; much more than most people do, and when I get hot my whole body stings, burns, tingles and also feels like my skin is crawling, if I get extremely hot. Sometimes, it causes an itching sensation as well - this is very unbearable, and especially so in very hot weather, I almost need to be in a temperature that some people would consider cool or cold to feel comfortable.

What could this be? What should I do? I did mention it to my Rheumatologist in the past, but he said it was probably not something to worry about; however,  this drives me crazy.

I also get swelling in my lower legs and feet with being on them even minimally; they turn bright red, sting and are burning hot to the touch - I don't know if that would have anything to do with the above symptoms or not, but I thought I'd add it just in case.

For a background: I'm a 25 year old female. I have Fibromyalgia,  Hidradentitis Suppurativa, Chronic Severe Migraines, Livedo Reticularis, IBS, past of Ulcers, Chronic bouts of Bursitis, Endometriosis, Arrhythmias (in the past - I'm not sure where that's at anymore), Chronic Sinus infections (always seem to have one to some degree; medications never fully get rid of it), Allergies, and a reoccurent past of high count of white blood cells, but no-one can ever figure out why.

Hi
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
Underlying infection or inflammation (as in arthritis, IBS etc which you have) in the body can result in the feeling of heat. Another possibility is hyperthyroidism. Antibiotic or other drug metabolism can also cause a feeling of heat in the body. Drink plenty of fluids, eat lots of fruits and vegetables and take multivitamins. Get your thyroid function assessed. Sjogren’s syndrome is another possibility. It can also be due to heart problems, especially if you feel suffocated at night. PCOD is also a known cause so get FSH, LH, estrogen and progesterone level assessed.
Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Take care!
