I feel like I am burning from the inside out, should I be worried ?

I feel like I'm burning from the inside out, but I'm too young for "the change". I have been having difficulties when I m sleeping where I wake up from feeling like I m cooking from the inside out. It s almost as if I ve got a heating pad under my back and I can t get away from it. I ll throw off my covers and roll over to expose my back to the cooler air and after about 10 minutes or so, the heat is gone, but then I m SUPER cold! This only happens at night and has never occurred during the day. I ve heard rumors of women experiencing menopause as young as 35, but I m only 31. I also occasionally get very sick to my stomach in the middle of the night, mostly early morning and it has lingered and worsened to the point where I have to stay home from work. The nausea happens maybe once or twice per month and the over-heating happens maybe three or four times a month. I will occasionally become nauseated once I have cooled down, but I ve not always had the heat trouble when I wake up nauseous. Also the nausea happens during the day on occasion, but I have attributed that to the possibility that I may be suffering from acid reflux . Should I be worried? It s mostly annoying and it does interfere with my sleep.

Acid reflux can mimic many of the symptoms you describe...
Please see your physician for some very effective medication which will solve all your problems.
You also need to control your diet - less of meat/products, egg and oily/fried stuff, spicy or hot stuff, and more of vegetables, fruits, salads..
Avoid coffee, tea and alcohol.
Do not eat just before bedtime, have your latest meal at least three hours before bedtime.
Don't lie down with a full stomach.
Hope you get better soon.
