Question: For the past week I have been getting periodic feelings of warmth in my right foot, usually the bottom of my heel or the lower part of my arch. It gets warm for a few seconds, like I stepped in a warm puddle, and then goes away after a few seconds. Is this something I should be alarmed about?

Brief Answer: Follows . Detailed Answer: Dear Madam , Thank you for posting your query on XXXXXXX Well looking into your problem I would like to tell you that whatever history you are giving is not very specific and we will not be able to help you out with diagnosis but still we can discuss the possibilities . Sometimes in hyperthyroidism also people have an increased tendency of feeling warmth . So it can be that . If it continues then possibilities like peripheral neuropathy and autonomic dysfunction ledaing to temperature disturbances needs to be considered. For this you will need to seek a consulatation from a neurologist but as if now you can wait and watch for the symptoms . Take care. Dr. Shruti

re: fasting blood sugar and autonomic neuropathy. I have hyperadrenergic postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome. mild peripheral neuropathy in my legs with pain and swelling, blurred vision. I am hearing from other friends with POTS that they are finding overlapping sugar issues and wonder if I am in that category. I have many symptoms, which I won t go into regarding my condition, but would like to know if there is new data out about autonomic dysfunction and prediabetes. Also, if catecholamines have anything to do with it. My norepinephrine is high standing. I began testing my glucose at home, and I have a high fasting glucose most days. 100-116. During my period, or when I am cramping it is at about 96-99. I have no other high readings throughout the day. And my a1c was normal at 5.4. But I have always craved sweets to combat my fatigue. Not as much now that I am older (41) but it was always a major factor. My question is, do you know about relationships to diabetes/prediabetes and autonomic dysfunction. And do you think I am heading towards prediabetes. Are high fasting numbers something that should concern me, considering my history with hypertension, tachycardia and neuropathy due to the POTS.

I was recently diagnosed with Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome. I am taking Fludrocortisone and Metropolol, but I am still very symptomatic and they are making me depressed. I will be seeing a specialist next week so is there anything I should ask him about? What can I do to help prepare for this appointment?

I had a heat stroke 10 years ago. As a result I was disabled for several years with Autonomic Dysfunction and severe heat intolerance. The symptoms eventually went away and I returned to work and exercising on a normal basis. Unfortunately, this summer the symptoms have come back after an overexposure to the heat while exercising. I don’t think that I had another heat stroke as I didn’t have a major event that sent me to the ER. It felt more like heat stress at the time but I am not sure. Could this all just be a chemical imbalance? It seems that if it was from the result of brain or nerve damage that I wouldn’t have recovered from it the first time. What do you think? Who specializes in this? Finding a doctor who can diagnose me is difficult. I am a 38 year old male.
