Feeling hot and sweating even in cold temperature. Do i have any underlying health problems?

I am a female aged 58. Height; 5 feet 2 inches. Weight 54 Kg. Lean Built. Located in Bangalore India. It is now summer in Bangalore with the highest mid day temperature of 34 to 35 Deg Celsius. My problem is I feel very hot and sweat profusely even early in the morning by 7 to 8 am when it is relatively cool, and throughout the day as well while all people around me have no such problem and appear to be quite comfortable with themselves. I do not recall any earlier time when I had felt so and as miserable in my life. I want to know if I have any underlying health problem. If yes what it is? If not why it is

Thanks for writing in.
What you could be experiencing are just hot flushes which is common in women after menopause. Other causes could be hyperthyroidism ( which is unlikely since I do not think you have any other symptoms). Hot flushes would mean like a feeling of warmth which spreads through the body but is felt most strongly in the head and neck region.
This is usually treated by hormone replacement therapy which can be given orally or in the form of patch. Since this treatment has several side effects like heart attacks, stroke and breast cancer, I would suggest that if you need to take treatment , do so for the least possible time at the smallest possible dose.
Other drugs for this include selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, clonidine and gabapentin have also proven to be useful. These are prescription drugs and I would suggest that you see a gynaecologist for the same.
Hope this helps.
