Hi, I'm new here, and not sure if this is the correct forum or not. I have tried a google search for my symptoms, but don't feel I've really found this.

I'm a 53yr old male. Somewhat overweight, with type 2 diabetes, which is in fair control, but not great.

I have always been "hot blooded" in that I would be warm when others are fine or even cool. And I always have sweated heavily when hot. These past few years I find myself getting extremely hot /sweat profusely over my whole body. This happens mostly when I'm doing light physical tasks, especially if the air isn't moving. It's getting worse, and it's getting to the point where it's down right embarrassing.

My heart doesn't race or pound. I don't get winded or short of breath. I'm not struggling to keep working, I'm just HOT and sweaty, while others are fine or in sweaters.

Most everything I find through google talks about Thyroid problems, but I don't have any of the other symptoms. No palpitations, no hand trembling etc... 6 months ago I had an abnormal EKG (minor according to the Cardio) and had a positive stress test. But when the Dr did the Heart catherazation, he said my arteries were completely clear, and that the stress test was a false positive. He says my heart is fine. Meanwhile, I had a routine blood test done, and nothing was found. Although I had not talked to my Dr about this, so he didn't order any other blood tests.

Anyway, if anyone thinks they can give me a nudge in the right direction as to what's going on, and perhaps some remedies, it would be greatly appreciated.
