Brief Answer:
acclimatization problem

Detailed Answer:
Dear Mr. XXXXXXX as your thyroid status is normal, still you have extreme heat intolerance, it seems you have sensitized your body to heat. your body thermostat has been tuned to a lower temperature level so you are comfortable at that particular temperature only. you need more relaxing therapies and need to increase your heat tolerance gradually.
you also have chron's disease and eczema which is suggestive of auto immune predisposition but as you are not on steroids that should not cause much problem.
