ever since last summer i've been experiencing a lot of sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures. it feels like my body can switch between being super cold and super hot within minutes. it especially affects my hands. whenever i get a little too warm, my palms turn red and splotchy and my hands get very hot. it's like all the blood rushes to my hands all at once. this can last up to twenty minutes until they cool off. i don't think it's raynaud's syndrome since i've never gotten the blue and white stages in my hands, only red. i also get the same thing in my feet.
my mom gets the same thing in her hands and feet once they warm up but she isn't anxious about it at all. then again, she doesn't have hypochondria.
this is one of the "symptoms" that i've been the most obsessed with for months so some reassurance that this is a common thing would be great. even as i type this i'm feeling weirdly warm all over. if i were to get cold later on and put on a sweater, i'd be super hot again within ten minutes. not only is it nerve-wracking but it's also very
annoying because i feel like my body temperature is never normal or comfortable.
another note, i don't get night sweats or anything of the sort, it feels like a very "internal" sort of heat? like it's radiating from my skin from inside my body. in fact i never sweat when this happens; if anything i feel like i don't sweat enough
when i get hot like this. any ideas?
