Heat stroke thyroid

Common Questions and Answers about Heat stroke thyroid


Avatar f tn A year ago I believe I suffered some heat exhaustion/stroke and since then, when i start getting hot during activities, i get chills up and down my spine, arms and legs. My calf muscle on my left side will tingle/becomes numb, i get dizzy , my face gets red, i can feel my heart pounding in my head and my breathing is rapid but shallow and i have trouble regulating it for a few minutes. It scares me.
Avatar f tn However I will try to provide you with some useful information. A heat stroke occurs when the body fails to dissipate heat sufficiently, and results in thermoregulatory failure. It can cause an alteration in a person’s level of consciousness, and is a life threatening emergency. Body temperature must be at least 104ºF, and its common causes include physical exertion in a hot environment, and lack of adequate fluid intake.
Avatar n tn I am even hot in the winter. One thing besides heat stroke that can cause heat intolerance is an over-active thyroid and also a lack of natural progesterone. Using natural remedies to help these conditions can sometimes help the problem with the heat as well.
Avatar f tn July of 2010, I had a bad and assume heat stroke. I was sitting outside watching a game of softball. I had drunk a bottle of water before I went and had a bottle of gatorade while I was there. All of a sudden, I didn't feel good at all. I told my friend I had to leave. She looked at me and said I was beat red. By the time I got back to my truck, I was very dizzy and starting to blackout. My friend said I was walking like I was drunk.
Avatar f tn So what exactly is heat intolerance and how does it relate to MS? I know the heat can exaggerate symptoms already there. But does MS make you more susceptible to getting overheated? I have noticed ever since the weather got hot (80s and 90s) I have trouble with the heat. As I've mentioned before, I run a lot. When I am running I get overheated way too fast. A lot fast than the other runners I train with.
Avatar n tn However it is also important to rule out other possibilities like diabetes, stroke, multiple sclerosis and underactive thyroid. Abnormal levels of calcium, potassium, or sodium in your body and a lack of vitamin B12 can also cause such sensations in the knee and legs. I feel that you should consult a physician/neurologist and get yourself evaluated for these different possibilities.
Avatar n tn When the elevated body temperatures are sufficiently high, hyperthermia is a medical emergency and requires immediate treatment to prevent disability or death. The most common causes are heat stroke and adverse reactions to drugs. Heat stroke is an acute condition of hyperthermia that is caused by prolonged exposure to excessive heat or heat and humidity.
Avatar n tn For several weeks now, I have had a strange feeling og heat in my left lower leg and ankel. I also notice last night the same feeling on my back. I am very concerned of a blood clot . can you help me with this question?
Avatar n tn For the past 3 weeks I've been feeling a deep heat below my knee on both legs. On several occasions I've tried to cool it down with cold water, And now I can feel that its spreading up towards my hip. Now i'm worried.
Avatar f tn In 2000 I was pregnant, found I got hyperthyroid from pregnancy (graves disease) and had the radiation ablation. This destroyed my entire thyroid gland. I began on synthroid and then I was put on Levoxyl. FYI: When my hyperthyroid went to hyperthyroid after my ablation, my TSH was almost at 100, nearly comatosed, lower legs fractured, hair loss, you name it. It took nearly 3 years to get to feeling normal and on a steady dosage.

798555 tn?1292791151 For me it was worse while hypo on T4 only- but I feel I should be able to take the heat better than I currently can. Any of you find heat intolerance to vastly improve on your thyroid treatment? Did it take a long, long time? Does excessive/ extended heat make you exhausted? boiling over waiting for fall and paying for A/C!
Avatar f tn I have under active thyroid and secondary hyperdydrosis and im a landscaper when i work in the heat I start to get the feelings of a heat stroke is this cause by thyroid and secondary hyperhydrosis i drink plenty of water during the day should i stay out of the sun and find a different job i have been feeling so weak and tired but i cant sleep at night what else could be causing this plaese help im so lost right now
Avatar f tn no other thyroid symptoms and I have a TFT every 6 months just in case) One of my symptoms was I couldn't adjust to heat or cold. I'd get heat stroke quite quickly and freeze as well even if it wasn't that cold or hot. I still have this. I've read that thyroid problems effect the Brown Adipose Tissue that effects temperature regulation and I wondered if anyone knows how that works exactly.
Avatar n tn During the night I experienced extreme heat like my blood was on fire.
Avatar n tn )tried to remove dirt from under the man's fingernails, and the man exploded with rage and died of heat stroke. If was learned that the man in the episode had been hot all his life, and some people stayed cleared from him because he emitted too much heat. Have you tried Google? If you have not, type" Broken Thermostat Syndrome" and see if you get lucky. Good Luck.
Avatar n tn I'm not sure if this makes a difference but in 2002 I had a serious case of heat stroke to the point of amnesia for 3 days. Please these physical symptoms are so bad it's causing me to stay home all during the day..I don't feel like I have a life in the Summer and can't enjoy the beautiful weather.
489228 tn?1291535054 The antibiotics esp say not to ge in the sun. When I have I get a rash etc. but I looked it up and there is a risk of heat stroke! So I don't think it is something to play around with. We have had a heat wave here in MO so I daily am thankful for air. Funny my younger too kids have had it cushier just because of my age etc... but then maybe God knew Drew would go to Iraq, in that heat...
Avatar f tn I shook in bed for 30 mins, it woke my husband because I shook the whole bed. I then went and sat in the bathroom still shaking for another 15 mins. I felt heat spread from my mid-back up my spine. I thought, ok maybe I'll throw up now so I slowly stood up holding the bathroom vanity. The heat went straight up to my head and I called my husband in because I knew I was going to pass out. He caught me and says I was out for about 1 min or 90 secs without taking a breath.
Avatar m tn The most common cause of heat intolerance is excess thyroid hormone. Other causes include amphetamines, anticholinergics, caffeine, menopause, multiple sclerosis, hypothalamic tumours, methadone treatment, dysautonomia, sensory processing disorder. It may take weeks to months before methimazole has its full effect. Hyperthyroidism raises reverse T3 as the body tries to reduce cellular thyroid levels.
Avatar n tn Does hypothyroid conditions affect the body temperature and possibly cause a type of heat stroke or exhaustion and cause the body to sweat excessively and uncontollably. A temperature of 97.9 was registered, but the entire body was abnormally hot coupled with excessive sweating asnd checked by a general practioner who diagnosed that there was no type of infection, such as a flu type bug. Any explanations?

Avatar n tn 2 weeks ago I went back to see him and he said he got no informtion from the lab yet and put another request to them and for me to call back in a month if his office didn't call me. In the mean time I am not being treated for my thyroid problem. Does he realy need results from my past blood work to start treating me? Also on my last vist I asked him what my T3 and T4 result were. He said T4 was normal and that they didn't check my T3 levels.
Avatar n tn I am surprised I haven’t gotten heat stroke by now. I really want to increase my weight so I can finally stop being self-conscious and enjoy my life. I have been doing research for over six years and have come up with some possible natural solutions to help me with my problem. My question to you is if you would recommend any of the following four products for gaining weight in a healthy way: Products: CB-1 Weight Gainer: https://www.cb1weightgainer.com/ Quick Gain: http://www.quickg.

938326 tn?1300882404 I never once had heat exhaustion or heat stroke. Immediately after this I started having chest pains and palps, hair started falling out, couldnt get energy started putting on weight. They told me I had pericarditis(swelling around the heart). I also had difficulty swallowing. I struggled with this until about a year, the chest pains went away, but still had palps. I was told it was harmless. I guess I just got used to the way my body felt and all these things.
