Question: My body overheats whenever I exercise
I am not tired, I am in good shape.
I am a beach volleyball player and coach, and every since I overheated 3 years ago, it's seems as though I am prone to overheating more easily and happens in 50 degrees etc

Brief Answer:
Get your thyroid checked.

Detailed Answer:
I am Dr Anshul Varshney. I understand your concern.

See, the only reason that needs attention for this problem is hyperthyroidism.

So I would recommend you to get your thyroid profile done and if that comes out to be normal then this is not any disease.
Few people have this tendency.

It's like few people sweat a lot while others don't sweat at all!!

Just maintain good hydration .
I hope it helps you.
If you have any further query, please ask me.

Hello Im 45 yrs old and have been having problems with my thyroid. Weight loss, diffilculting swallowing as there is a lump in my throat which causes me to choke when eating. Thyroid levels show somewhat normal and doctor didnt put me any meds. told me to go see a specialists as he didnt know my problem. Its very scary as I have all the symptoms for hyperactive thyroid. Someone told me to gargle salt water. That sounds crazy. What do you think? Please tell me what to do. I done lost 12 pounds and Im a petite woman anyway. I weigh now at 103pounds. Im very scared. My throat usually swells in the evening and you can see it bulging out. Please tell me what i need to do. Thanks a bunch.

Hi, I'm currently in remission of hyperthyroidism and have been for a while. I still have some lingering problems from it such as a strange reaction to caffine. I usually try to stay away from it but when I do accidentally get too much my head hurts, I get drowsy, nautious and mresting heart rate speeds up. This is the case now as I had to take some pain medication and have been drinking caffinated tea which I usually dont drink. Is there a safe way to slow down my heart rate and really just get over these symptoms cause I'm pretty useless right now. Thank you.

My TSH T4 blood work levels are in normal range. My hashimoto's was 232.0. My Doctor states this is fine even though I have thyroid systems - hair falling out, dry skin, tired, forgetfullness, etc. I had a partial thyroidectomy in 2000 for a goider and was hyperthyroid. Are these lab results ok, or should I see an Endocrynologyst?
