Unusuall Hotness

My mom is feeling extensively hot compared to us from past few weeks. She complains in her body she feels burning sensation and only her face keeps sweating heavily. What could be the reason? Anything serious? She has thyroid and regularly takes thyroxine tablets.

When did she get her menopause? The symptoms are consistent with perimenopausal hot flashes. Hormone replacement therapy is beneficial if it is too troublesome. Consult a physician.

Hello there....., Those with thyroid problems often have trouble with temperature extremes, especially hot and cold... Standard treatment for hypothyroidism involves daily use of the synthetic thyroid hormone levothyroxine. This oral medication restores adequate hormone levels, reversing the signs and symptoms of hypothyroidism...Check out with your Physician regarding medications...
