Brief Answer:
meet your doctor and discuss about thyroid and liver function tests

Detailed Answer:
Welcome at HCM
I really appreciate your health concerns
For how long you are suffering from it? Any recent change in body weight? Any history of excessive sweating? Any history of diarrhoea? Are you taking any medicine? Any pregnancy? Any history of hypertension ? Any liver problem? Any swelling in neck?
Based upon the history provided it is difficult to make inference. There is need to get the answer of above questions to figure out.
You should get record of your body temperature. Take at least 5 readings in 24 hours to look for any change in body temperature. If I am your attending physician I will get your thyroid function tests, liver function tests along with BP charting. After then I will be able to proceed further.
Inside feeling of raised temperature may be due to fatty liver disease .other differentials include raised thyroid hormone levels .
Meet your doctor so that you can be properly examined and investigated.
Hope it helps
Regards
Dr Saad
