New girl here.
I can't even begin to type all of my issues down, it would take months.
But I do have a question.
Is there anyone else who gets fevers/hot flashes when panicking?
The fever never lasts for more than an hour or two for me, but it's a new symptom and has been happening every night for me.
The hot flashes are on and off through the day, and some nights I'm having pretty bad night sweats.
I don't normally sweat so I am unsure if this is anxiety, possible pregnancy, or something more serious.
I'm making myself sick worrying about it

Hot flashes are pretty normal during panic attacks.  I don't know about running an actual fever though; I've never checked my temperature during one!

I had a panic attack yesterday and I had hot flashes all over my face, plus my head felt warm (though not feverish warm). That said, I'd maybe check your temp to make sure you're normalish when that happens again.

Night sweats are normal if you're anxious or stressing out about something. I sometimes get them.

Anxiety has caused me to actually become hypothermic before. Dipped down to 92F. I imagine the opposite can happen.
