| | Feeling Hot and Cold
I've noticed for a long time that I frequently feel too hot, then too cold, or a mixture of both (if that's possible). It feels like what I would describe as hot flashes or cold flashes, and I get kinda clammy and sweaty. I am aware that these could be symptoms of anxiety, but the weird thing is, sometimes it happens when I am not knowingly experiencing a lot of anxiety. Maybe I'm getting ready for work in the morning and trying to hurry, but I'm not feeling horribly anxious. Does this happen to anyone else?
Of course, the hypochondriac in me worries that it's a sign of an actual illness. I've gone to the doctor many times over the past few years, not necessarily for that symptom but for various things, and they just don't seem to be concerned with most of my little symptoms. I had a "physical" a couple weeks ago and all it consisted of was taking my BP, listening to my heart and breathing, taking some blood for a cholesterol check, and telling me to come back soon for my annual pelvic exam. That's it. My doctor said that's all that they normally do for someone my age. He didn't feel anything was wrong with me.
Anyway, I guess I just wanted to find out if others experience this hot/cold sensation and if you think it's just part of anxiety.
