are you still there?
How long has this been going on?
Do you feel hot? Are you able to sweat?
hi please answer my questions if you can
yes I'm here. No, I do not sweat at all. I feel hot to my flesh. I can hardly touch myself. Even my hands are hot. My husband feels my hotness as well.
when did this start
are you reddish?
does your doctor know what is going on?
no, I haven't said anything. I feel better since I've been on some particular meds, but i'm just sooo hot.
do you know what your tsh is?
Is that thyroid? If so, no.
yes that is thyroid
any other symptoms?
can't sleep. too hot. I was sleeping day & night, but not now. Wow! This is so crazy.
Well, this can be the consequence of your medication or lack there of
In particular, if you are taking too much thyroid medication, then it may be making you too hyperthyroid
So getting the TSH rechecked would be key
none of the medications you are taking cause anticholinergic syndrome- which is hot skin, but some over the counter ones can- like benadryl
If your premarin is not enough, you may be having hot flashes
So, you think it is all about the thyroid meds? These are not flashes. I am sitting here now and can't stand to touch my face w/my hands because I feel so hot to the touch.
I think that it is your thyroid meds
I woudl make an appointment to get seen in the next couple of days y
you sound miserable
okay then I'll check w/ my doc. I'm likethis day & night. Can this have anything to do w/ kidneys. I was once told (by a spec) that I have ckd.
it sounds like you need a thorough check up- the meds are most likely
kidney disease does not cause hot skin
but this could be a side effect of something you are taking and if your kidney function is poor, you may not be clearing your medication as expected
okay that's comforting anyway.
I think you will have your answer when you see your doctor
you are welcome

Yes, I appreciate your advice & remarks.
great, please keep me posted. I will check in with you in a few days
I won't be home to see my doc few a couple of wks. I'm on vacation. Hot, but nevertheless vacationing. I'll try & drink more water. Ice water. Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX
