19yr old female, for 8 months or more has had severe night sweating waking up soaked. Feeling hot all the time. Weak a lot of the time and sleeps a lot.
She goes shopping for a couple of hours and has to come home and sleep.
Wheezing more and more and shortness of breath. ( Asthamatic since aged8) What can this all mean as there is no way she can lead a normal life like this.
Might be side effects if she's taking corticosteroids for her asthma or a problem with her thyroid like hyperthyroidism, they both have similar symptoms - heat intolerance, sweating (esp soaking night sweats), weakness, fatigue - also increased appetite (weight loss in hyper, weight gain with steroids), difficulty concentrating, "hot flash" easy flushing/blushing, etc.
