Feel Extremely Hot From The Inside...
Posted 16 February 2009 - 01:59 PM
The worst part of it is that I begin coughing when this happens. I really have trouble at church because of this. I start getting that hot feeling and start coughing and can't stop. I actually have had to get up and go home in the middle of church because I can't stop coughing. I also do this at work and people always start tossing cough drops, peppermints, bottled water my way thinking it is a scratchy throat...it never helps. I can't stop coughing until I cool off.
The weird thing is that I don't sweat...I just feel hot inside. The only time I sweat is when I have a POTS episode and pass out. I sweat excessively then.
You would think that I would cough in hot weather, but I don't. I can be outside when it is in the 90's and never cough. I can even handle hot weather temperatures pretty well. I just have this problem with inside hot feelings.
Do any of you do this? I sometimes feel crazy because I don't know anyone else who does this. Thanks for your replies.

GERD? (acid reflux)?
I had coughing really, really bad with GERD; it was like I had a cold that was hanging on and would flare up when I ate or got upset or exherted myself.
Does the warmth feel like possibly hot burn at all?
Again, just throwing something out there.

I love this board because it is comforting to know others have the same wieird symptoms. Does anyone else yawn alot on bad days?

Yes! It seems like I can't get enough oxygen sometimes (although I've checked my O2 sats and they're normal), and yawning gives me temporary relief. It seems like I yawn a lot on most days now.

I don't know what causes the "internal heat" symptom, but I have also experienced it. I used to say that it felt like my insides were cooking. I feel like there is heat radiating from my body cavity. I also do not sweat at all in response to being warm; being outdoors in the warmth or even in a warm room or in the kitchen when there is a burner on makes me feel woozy and like I am going to pass out. I only get cold and sweaty in association with other autonomic symptoms, but never sweat when I normally would have before getting dysautonomia. I don't have much to offer in terms of understanding or treating this symptom, but I wanted you to know that I know what you are talking about. I don't experience coughing related with it though. The only thing that sometimes helps me is holding an icepack to my core body, usually my abdomen when I get this feeling. Hang in there all!

Oh, on several occasions I?ve had the out-of-control cough with this. But most times, it was the out-of-control yawning. Just crazy, this illness!
