My body is to hot and I vomit

I am a 52 year old male, my body is so hot to the touch my spouse sleeps on the other side of the bed, but it is so hot inside that I throw up. Feels like I am going to explode or pass out. I have been throwing up for 380 days so far. They put me in the hospital last October when all of my organs quit and ran HIV test, a bunch of others and can not find a reason. Everything I put in my stomach comes back out, The heat in my body is so bad that my head feels like its going to bust. I am starving to death but all the drs are like we cant figure it out and send me home to only throw up more. any ideas. I sleep with ice cubes on my chest

I'm so sorry you're going through this awful situation.

Do you actually have a fever?  Or is your skin seemingly hot but your internal temperature is normal?

You need better doctors.  I would suggest you call the Mayo clinic and ask for help.  This is the kind of mysteries they solve.

My best guess is,  this is an overactive thyroid issue.  When they test for thyroid,  they test 4 levels and if each of the levels are within "normal" they declare it's not a thyroid problem.  But thyroid hormones are in balance - and if one is "high normal"  and others are in "low normal" you could die from thyroid issues while your doctor says your levels are fine.

Best wishes,  and prayers for your healing.

So I googled this - and found this is recognized in Eastern cultures,  and has been forever.  It's called "empty heat".  You might want to google it.  

The whole point of this post is to tell you it's not uncommon,  other cultures recognize it,  and I'm sorry your doctors have completely brushed you off.  

You deserve answers.
