feeling "hot"

Right, this is a wierd one.....

not sure whether its anxiety or something else, but when stressed, or during periods of stress, does anyone else here feel "hot" - not sure how else to describe it - feels like your body temp is elevated? you know? like you have a fever or something!!! but.. when i actually take my temp, all is well.

But, nevertheless, very unusual!!

Re: feeling "hot"

Blushing, flushing and sweating are common problems associated with anxiety. You can research some solutions on the internet, or ask your doctor to help if it interferes with your life.

Re: feeling "hot"

Actually I don't think it's unsual at all.
I've had panic/anxiety problems on and off for as long as I can right now, thank God

Every single time I ever got anxious or was about to have a panic attack the first thing I noticed was that I got very hot.
I felt like my temp had to be 105 degrees, when actually it wasn't elevated at all.

I talked to my Doctor about it once and he assured me that many people with panic or anxiety problems say the first thing they notice is that they either got extremely hot, or they got chills.

I was one like you, who felt like my temp was rising, while I have a friend who still suffers from panic/anxiety problems and she says the first thing she feels are chills.
This is indeed a strange disorder.

But, like with anything if it concerns you, you should talk with your Doctor about it.

Re: feeling "hot"

i too get that 'hot' feeling when anxiety kicks in, i swear sometimes my forehead feels like its burning (to anybody elses touch it feels normal), or soemtimes the quite opposite occurs where i physically shake cause i feel that cold... its weird. Physical symptoms such as these are fairly common with anxiety unfortunately, but remember your not alone here.
