Customer: replied 1 month ago.

Helli Dr. Palmer,

No he doesn't soak his sheets, but he does all of a sudden starts shaking saying he feels cold in the inside. He has this going on for about 3 months. He gets immune therapy for ants and allergy shot once a week. He has been getting his shot for a year already. He will be in his football or baseball game and he starts feeling cold, but will be sweating.

Has he ever had his thyroid checked? I would start here, and when he feels these chills or sweats he needs to have his temp taken. Does he appear pale, eating normally, more tired?
