Have hot body, sensitive to temperature altering food, get stomach pain, belching, hot breath. What is it?

Hi Doctor, my body is always hot and people usually say that they are feeling like sitting next to someone having fever. But I don have any fever. Other problems I face because of this is that, I am very sensitive to food items that can alter your body temperature. Like if I take head bath and drink lemon juice / tender coconut I get heavy stomach upset / stomach pain / belching sensation. My breath is always so hot that I sometimes get doubt if I have fever. So I am really worried of my condition, why is my body so hot. Can you please help me understand. Thanks

Hi and welcome to HCM!
Thanks for posting your query here.
When food undergoes catabolism in the body it releases energy and it is stored in the body. This process is called oxidative phosphorylation. The excess energy is stored in the adipose tissue. In some people the oxidation of the food is not followed by the phosphorylation. So the energy is released as excess heat from the body. This happens in people having more brown adipose tissue. Other than the excess heat no other affects are identified untill now.
Even if they have excess food obesity is rare in those individuals. I think you will be having a lean body. So to compensate the water loss in excess heat you need to take a lot of fluids. In general it is not related with the foods what you take. It may be a coincidence.
For the gastric upset you can use some H2 blockers like Ranitidine.
Hope this is helpful to you.
