I have this strange problem for more than 4 months now..

I feel cold on the back of my head, on my forehead, my upper back and my center lower back. This strange feeling is accompanied by mild sweating/moistness on those areas. These dont happen throughout, but in episodes. Each time this starts, it lasts for like 10 minutes or slightly more.

This strange thing occures more when i'm discussing things over the phone, having indepth discussions with someone(basically when i think more i guess) or on those days which are more stressful in nature.

I do excercise a lot and i feel no weakness/fatigue/weight loss etc. i still run about 3 kms five times a week. However, i accept that i take lots of stress for everything. any smell ***n thing, and i'm worried. I'm worried that something will happen to me soon, and i though i dont fear death myself, i do worry about the people who are dependant on me... If something happens to me, they have no one else..

I've had night sweats on two occasions in the past four months. Both those nights were a traumatic experience with me waking up from an intense dream(so intense that it puts reality to shame) and then i sweat on the back of my head.. enough to make me turn the pillow on the other side atleast. My dream restarted from the point it stopped when i got up after i went back to sleep. I dont sweat if i get directly under the fan at those times. These night sweats terrify me now.. i just checked the kind of diseases that this thing is a symptom of.. and its very scary.. I dont have stomach problems, cough, fever or anything like that..

My symptoms surface if i'm just getting out into the sun. before i start sweating the normal way, i have all this symptoms.

I'm very worried.. cant concentrate on my work, what grave disease do i reall have? I'm scared to get a diagnosis because i dont know if i'll be able to take it if the doctors tell me that i have an uncurable condition.. My life is very miserable..

anyone out here with a good heart and some knowledge on this, please shed some insight as to what you think.. Its been very hard for me to muster up courage to ask you guys this..

Thanks a lot in advance..
