Brief Answer: Anxiety and Stress. Need Psychologist advice. Detailed Answer: Hello, I suspect it to be due to his Anxiety and Stress. Anxiety has the potential to drastically raise your body heat, almost as though you're sick, and – depending on where you are – that rise in body heat can be significantly uncomfortable and cause a lot of frustration and misery. Our body heat rises as a result of our fight or flight system. When we confront danger, we need our body to be ready to start fighting or to run away, and body heat changes can actually help us with that reaction. But when our fight/flight system is misfiring, that leads to persistent anxiety, and persistent anxiety is a real problem. Hot flashes or felling of heat generating from inside are rarely the only symptom. That hot feeling can be very disruptive to your life. Those that experience hot flashes at night often report significant problems sleeping, as their sheets start to feel drenched in sweat and their body feels too warm to get any rest. Those that experience it during the day may find that they are uncomfortable everywhere they go. He need thorough physical examination as well as Psychological assessment. Ask him to try relaxation techniques like Yoga and Meditation. Hope this helps. Please write back for further queries. Wishing you god health.
