I have been having hot spells, inside my body. I will just all of a sudden get extremly hot inside, but my skin is very cool to touch. Also, I feel really cold. I can't explain it so it will make any sense. It isn't like a fever. Sometimes my skin gets red in those spots also.It mostly is in my ears, arms, legs and face. I at first thought it was when I would be mad at something, but I can be by having fun and it happens. It use to be just in my ears, but now it's other places. I also get extremly dizzy when it happens. Sometimes I get bad headaches too. It has been going on for about a year now. Maybe the headaches are from stress, but the other stuff is starting to worry me. Maybe I am overreacting. Is it a symptom of thyroid problems, which I have. Or something else? Should I be worried, more then I am? I also have pain in a lot of different palces, and go numb from time to time, in those same spots. I also have a stomsche that bloats, all the time, could it also be a symptom? Thanks for any help.

  • I looked up Addison's, and I have about 14 of those symptoms. Could it be just a conicedence? I also noticed it had said something about a tumor on the pituitary gland can cause Addison's. Well as I was getting my thyroid under control, I had to have an mri done, because my prolacton was elevated. There was something there, with and without the contrast. The doctors told me it's "probably a nodule that my gland created because of being overworked by the lack of my thyroid." But I have also been wondering if all my symptoms could possibly from getting carbon monoxide posioning? I had to leave my house last week, because my detector had went off. I also have very dry nostrils, they have been bleeding. I have never had a nose bleed in my like. Is this a symptom of my hot inside/freezing problem? Or could it just be that where I leave is just to dry? Some others, that get nose bleeds, have told me that they are getting more lately. So probably the dryness. Anymore help that anyone can give me, I would really like to know. Oh yes, I wanted to say that I am only 22, so it's couldn't me menopause. Right?

  • It could be several things. Addison's is definitely a possibility...or you could be having hot flashes. :)
