I believe I am correct in saying that the triple heater meridian (energy line) of the body is the one concerned with heat regulation and so it may be another avenue of investigation worth persuing, to see whether there are imbalances in the meridians. Chinese medicine has used these energy lines to treat and diagnose illnesses for thousands of years and are still using this system today.

If there is an acupuncturist or a Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner available, then perhaps they can help with needles or herbs. Many different healing modalities use these energy lines of the body which, if they are out of balance, can cause all kinds of problems.

I used to get night sweats and it turned out to be excess sugar. I was drinking orange juice and lemonade at the pub rather than alcohol, so it was the sugary lemonade which was causing the night sweats for me.

Here's a whopper of a response for this thread. I've been checking in here for the last few years and now I have something to add.

I lived a perfectly normal life until the year 2010. I was 32 and began to overheat easily and got spontaneous hot flashes. It started subtle and then got worse over a few years. In 2013 my small children started to show the same symptoms. In 2014 my wife started showing symptoms. In 2012 My Dad started showing symptoms, my Mom in 2015. My wife's sister started showing symptoms in 2016. Whatever the cause.. This is spreading..

Here are mine & my wife's symptoms:
Overheating and sweating from basic chores or any work or even thinking hard (we are talking shooting heat down back and legs over the course of 1/2 second)
Can no longer be in the sun when its more than 64 deg's outside or we overheat
While outdoors, we get eaten alive by blood sucking insects (our heat makes us very easy to find)
Overheat indoors while just sitting when the temp is over 72 deg's
Spontaneous severe hot flashes
Get hives and a hot flash 1 hour after eating meat (yes it's organic)
Tired all the time, no energy, mental fog and headaches
Turn severely cold in the winter time and get hypothermic very easily

I went thru years of my doctors testing my endocrine system. I am in perfect health otherwise, so they concluded it must be anxiety induced. No one would believe me about the spreading of this disease. So i finally just brought my wife and kids with me to the doctor along with pics for proof of everyone's illness. Now they finally believe.

I've also seen an acupuncturist since 2012. Acupuncture does take the edge off. My acupuncturist finally told me last year, she can't help me anymore. It's clearly an outside source causing my illness as it just keeps getting worse.

The doctors and acupuncturist agree the cause is one of these 4:
Bacterial Infection (like Lymes disease or one of the other 20 other types out there)
New Virus
Environmental effect like pollution of some sort

If I had to bet my life on what I think the cause is after analyzing this for 6 years, I'd go with parasites.

I think it's simple, when we burn any calories/energy at all (like vacuuming or thinking at work) "they" make us stop by overheating us. It's works very effectively even for my 6 year old; when he gets too active and burns calories, "they" tell him to stop using "their" energy by overheating him. He understands.. And stops what he's doing.
It could also explain the hives from meat. It's hard to digest and takes energy, so they shut us down. It would also explain our very low energy as they are sucking the life out of us.

My wife and I also have not infected anyone at our work, and we both work closely with others. So how did we infect our family members on both sides of our marriage?? I think from being outside with them. Like cook outs and campfires.. I believe mosquitos landed on us and then landed on them and infected them. Just my theory..
Also, this disease gets worse over a year or two. Again seemingly parasitic; as they multiply, symptoms get worse.

What ever it is, it wants to be found and spread. You should see the insects swarm our hot heads while we are outside. It's a sight to behold..

Has anyone else seen this disease spread??

Has anyone found out what causes this? Oct 2016 I became extremely HOT, just like the first post, however, my skin doesn't feel hot and I don't sweat, I just feel so extremely overheated I can hardly live. It's been 9 months now and I've had every kind of blood test, urine test, MRI's, CT Scans, ultrasounds etc.. So far, my thyroid T3 and T4 are in the normal range. Blood work did find high Thyroid Antibodies (4,000) and slightly enlarged thyroid (goiter) from the ultrasound. Endo tried giving me Methimazole but I broke out in hives after just two days. He also tried Iodine drops but it didn't help at all. He then even tried Synthroid and that didn't help. A beta blocker seems to reduce the heat slightly but not enough to live a normal life. Also, just found that my ALT was 66 and Albumin was 5.2. I tell everyone I meet about this excessive heat issue and no one has ever had this or ever heard of it. For this reason also the Dr. tried anti-depressants. I tried two different ones and it didn't help at all. I'm at my whit's end. LIfe is very hard to live feeling this way every day. Also, I am a 59 year old woman and the first thing doctors tried was all kinds of hormone therapy and that didn't help, hormones are normal. I had a total hysterectomy 20 years ago so menopause is over. I would appreciate any ideas or thoughts.

This. Also effexor, which is why I went off of it.

Default Extremely Hot, but don't perspire excessively

I appreciate the suggestion that I check out the site regarding hyperhydrosis(?), but other than when I was going through menopause, I don't generally perspire much. Maybe because I can't tolerate being in the heat long enough to do so and so I retreat to cooler areas, but whatever the reason, I use an antiperspirant and that works fine.

I am 59 now and still have not found the problem (if there is one). Moving North might help some, but I gave it more thought. Any time I will be in a public place (movie, restaurant, etc), I will still be miserable. Any time I visit someone's home, I will be miserable. I have had the iodine tests, tried synthroid - why???, tried antidepressants (I never understood the theory why they might work) and I could go on and on. The only thing that changed is a new raft of ugly side effects, but I stuck through them until the doctor agreed they were not helping the heat issue.

In order to feel comfortable the temp needs to be lower and lower with each passing year. Now I am comfortable when it is 63 degrees or lower. Strangers are constantly urging me to dress warmer. All I can say is "Thank you, but I am comfortable". When I shake hands with people, they frequently remark by how warm my hands feel (while I am thinking "if you only knew").

I ought to mention my younger sister has the exact opposite issue. She is never warm enough. It could be 95 degrees and she has to wear layers in order to stay warm enough. But at least she can manage to do so without having to retreat from where she is. She too goes through several tests, though not nearly as extensive as mine, to ensure she is not ill. Her doctor said, that is just the way she was built.

I was in a convention hall over the weekend that was jam packed. Everyone was complaining of the heat and lack of circulation, but were mainly just getting on with what they were there for. I tried my best to do the same thinking (as has been proposed way too many times) that this is all a state of mind thing. I fainted after I finally decided I could not take it any more and headed for the door. When I awoke the onsite EMS were already working on me. This still does not rule out this being a state of mind thing. But I still would love to know how to address it.

I have the opposite problem - cold most of the time. Hot blooded/natured husband keeps the A/C at freezing levels. I actually go outside to 100 degree temps to warm up.

Raynaud's Syndrome I think they call it.

Well.. I may have an answer as to what is causing all of the trouble.

My last post here was in June 2016. My doctor referred me to a Lymes Disease specialist and that is it. More directly there are co-infections of Lymes. The heat is caused by Babesia.

Babesia is a microscopic blood parasite. I was bit by a tick or mosquito with it.

My meat allergy came from the tick biting a deer (probably) first and injecting the Lyme's with the animal protein into my blood stream. When I ate meat my body associated the animal protein with Lyme's and tried to attack it.

Treatment for Babesia (and Lymes):

Medically there is no cure. So my doctor referred me to a Lyme's specialist who does Cranio Biotic Treatments. Basically he gets a read, as to where your body is infected with what parasite (Lyme's, Babesia, Borrelia, Bartonella, and wormy parasites all come from ticks) and then he zaps the spot with a frequency that sets off your immune system alarm at exactly that point. Your body then sends it's own natural killers to kill the parasitic infection.

The Cranio Biotic treatment was very hard. It felt like I had the flu for 6 months, while my body suppressed me and killed all infections. After all of that I was only 40% better.

Just 2 weeks ago, we started the Dr. Sebi Diet. We are now 50% to 60% better. I also cannot stress enough how much meditation helps too.

Google the Dr. Sebi Diet. It is hard core, but it seems to be working.

I sincerely hope this post helps so many of you who are truly suffering with this disease. This disease crushes all social life, possibly your career and also effects romance so heavily. It's a burden no one should bear.

My Lyme's specialists website is: Erlandson Family Chiropractic - Chiropractor Serving Onalaska, La Crosse, And Westby Areas, WI USA :: LymeStop & CranioBiotic Techniques Most of his clients fly in as he serves those who come.

If anyone wants more info or just needs to talk I am leaving my cell # as it is that important that you get healed.
