Compared with most people, I'm super tolerant to cold. The trouble is, I always feel uncomfortably hot and when any stress or anxiety is thrown my way, I perspire profusely. I'm 51 and post menopausal (by five years). I'm sluggish most of the time and I've been suffering from depression and too much weight for most of the past 10 years. I have a sedentry job but I walk my dog for 90 to 120 minutes a day -- rain or shine. I'm actually quite fit, despite my weight.
Both my mum and gran had underactive thyroids but my blood tests shows I'm at the low end of the normal range.
Someone suggested I make a record of my temperature which I've been doing for a week. Surprisingly, my temperature is a bit low -- it averages 36.4. I'd have thought this would make me feel cold.
Frankly, I'd put up with depression and fatigue and even my weight, if only I could be cool. My 'hotness' is really getting to me. My doctor suggests I wear cool clothes -- oh, if only I'd thought of that!!!! Can anyone suggest where this heat is coming from?
