My head & neck emit excessive heat like a mild fever, but my hands & feet are like little icecubes. I can't draw anymore because of it. It occurs mostly when I'm writing, drawing, or typing & usually only in autumn & winter. It happens "whenever" too, but to a lesser degree when I'm not using my hands. When my hands & feet get cold, the joints hurt & layering gloves & socks does nothing but produce cold sweat. Hot water provides temporary relief to the hand & a different type of pain to the feet. My face however can't stand to have heat blown on it, be within 4 feet of a fire, or handle temeratures over 70*.
This problem started when I moved from Nevada to Seattle in Sept. 2003, along with fatigue, intollerance to light/anything yellow, dizziness brought on by sudden movement/elevator, problems remembering dates/times/numbers, obsessive-compulsive disorder, repetitive gramatical errors, poor healing/excesively oily skin, abuility to remember things from 1998 like they were yesterday but no recollection of stuff I did hours/days ago. Also, I used to never get sick more than 1 cold every 2 years, but lately I catch colds that last 3 weeks & this new appetite-inhibiting thing that started off painfully. I'm eating a lot less but haven't lost any weight.
These could be unrelated. I have yet to be tested for Dyslexia & Adult Attention Defficit Disorder.
