Overheating/Hyperhidrosis

Afternoon all,

   I have been suffering from hyperhidrosis for the past 10 years. Within the past year or two, the sweating has been coupling with overheating. My whole body feels like I am having a fever and it can come quickly and go away just as quickly. I wanted to know if anyone out there found out if it was something besides a thyroid disorder since I have normal levels.

Age: 22
Male
Indian (Asian)
My overall body symptoms:
Premature Ejaculation
High Libido
Get erection very easily
Acne/Very oily skin
Hyperhidrosis (I get very very sweaty in my hands, back/butt, forehead, feet, pretty much the whole body)
Every meal causes intense amount of gas (belly grows greatly)
Possibly have glaucoma. Retinal imaging tests need to be taken every year to see if I do have it.
Received a brain MRI in 2009 for loss of vision...Neuro said it was aura migraines (I agree with that too, symptoms are exactly as he stated).
High levels of prolactin (Was told I have macroprolactin)
Did another MRI for prolactinoma (came back normal)
Normal levels of thyroid.
Low levels of VITAMIN D,25-HYDROXY
High Levels of Calcium (Just barely 10.3...supposed to be less than 10.2)
Low levels of WBC (Just barely again, have had  this reoccurring over the past 5 years)
Endocrinologist said everything looked normal from her end based on the blood reports.

Basically, I want to know if there is something else that could be causing all these symptoms.

Thank You!

Since we're a thyroid forum, why not start by posting your actual thyroid hormone levels and be sure to include the reference ranges as shown on your lab report.  Hyperhidrosis is not necessarily a symptom we see a lot with thyroid conditions, unless it's hyperthyroidism, but just because results fall within the normal range, doesn't mean they are normal for you.  

Also, what were your actual level of vitamin D?  There's low as in "low normal" or there's low as in below range...

Are there reference ranges for the prolactins, IGF, Z score, Testosterone and FSH?   Your levels don't really look "right", but then different labs have different ranges for things, so all of that has to come from your own report.

Your calcium is high - have you had Parathyroid hormone (PTH) tested?  You could have parathyroid adenoma.

Your vitamin D is abysmal, but you need to find about parathyroid, because if you have issues there supplementing vitamin D isn't always recommended.

Your actual thyroid hormone tests look good...

Hyperhidrosis is a due to overactivity in the sympathetic nervous system. These nerves become active due to a variety of stimuli including heat hormones, stress, physical activity or exercise.

Excerpt from the Cleveland Clinic - Hyperhidrosis...

"Generalized hyperhidrosis: Affects large areas of the body with excessive sweating, typically in adults whose sweating occurs during both waking and sleeping hours. Generalized hyperhidrosis may be caused by:

Heat, humidity, exercise
Infections, such as tuberculosis
Malignancies (Hodgkin disease, cancer of the lymphatic system)
Metabolic diseases and disorders, including hyperthyroidism, diabetes, hypoglycemia, pheochromocytoma (a benign tumor of the sympathetic nervous system), gout, and pituitary disease
Menopause
Severe psychological stress
Some prescription drugs
Autonomic dysfunction

Localized hyperhidrosis: Specifically affects the palms, soles, armpits and face. Unlike generalized hyperhidrosis, it usually begins in adolescence, but can also manifest in childhood or even in infancy. Localized hyperhidrosis typically does not occur during sleep and is commonly caused by:

Emotional stress, especially anxiety
Heat
Certain odors
Certain foods, including citric acid, coffee, chocolate, peanut butter and spices
Spinal cord injury"
