I have always had a bit of a problem feeling hot, so I don't even know if I can blame pre-menopause for this.
This summer has been a bit hard on me, I know we had many hot days but I seem to feel hot more than the rest of us here at home. I had to keep the window air conditioner on almost all the time, which never happened before, and my husband kept complaining that the room was too cold - still I was feeling hot.
I have no fever at all. But the heat seems to come from within.
I will be 46 yeard old in September and I've been told it could be pre-menopause symptoms. But I also heard the the hot flashes were felt mainly in the upper part of the body and I feel hot allover.
Also I sometimes felt like this ever since I was at least a teenager - I don't remember if earlier -.But it was something that happened very seldom and without a pattern.
I am overweight. I am 5' 5" and weigh 210 lbs.
MY mother was very thin she weight 97lbs. She had a thyroid problem ( hyperthyroid ) but I was tested in in my case the results were normal if a bit to the low side suggesting according to the doctor that if there was a problem it would be more hypothyroid than hyper. But in any case according to him it was normal.
The heat feels like it's coming from inside allover. I feel like I'm burning from head to toe literally. MY legs and feet seem so warm to the touch, my arms, my neck, but if I check to see if I have a temperature I am still at around 36.4 C. I often feel like this when I wake up but also during the day - and night as well.
My period still seems to be normal and I am healthy otherwise so far - at least everything was fine on my last check up a few months ago.
I've been feeling a bit depressed for a while now, but that has to do with personal problems and I don't see a connection health wise.
Could this really be pre menopausal symptoms ? Or something else?
P.S. sorry about the lenghty post
