my body starts to tingle especially my face, back and back of my legs

This answer was rated:

In the fall and winter months when my body temputure rises, (doing exercise or any exsertion my body starts to tingle especially my face, back and back of my legs. In the summer months when the body temputure is elevated it's not an issue. It is very uncomfortable stops me from doing anything until it calms down, after I cool down, help!



There is something called exercise induced urticaria. Which is heat induced allergic reaction and can even have hives as well.


Why you only do it in the fall, I cannot answer. It can and does occur in the summer also. It may be possible that you are wearing different clothing in the fall.


Treatment is to take benadryl before you exercise or take claritin or zyrtec on a daily basis. Wear loose fitting clothing and taking cool showers immediately after exercise.

You don't feel that it's a hormone issue at all right?. As soon as the temputure began to drop this year, here it comes As I indicated earlier in the summer months when body temputures stays a little elevated, I have no issues

No, nothing that you have described would make me think of a hormone issue.


It is very interesting that you don't do it all the time, just seasonal!
