I will be looking into your question and guiding you through the process. Please write your question below.

Medical question please, Suddenly I get sudden temperature rise,why is it so ?

Without any warning and for no apparent reason whether I am sitting,walking, or what ever, I get a sudden temperature rise which causes me to sweat profusely for a 2, 3, 4 minutes, by which time I am wet in my upper body and head. Once this sequence is over, that s it. It is totally random, whether I sat still or working. It can be days or weeks between these events but over the last 2 days it has happened 3 times each day, and once again, so far, today. Any contributions and opinions will be much appreciated. Thanks, Andy Pandy,

Don't know anything at all about your age ... or medical history. Ever have anxiety attacks? Cardiac issues? Profuse sweating should be looked at and addressed. Any fever? Coughs with this? Nights sweats in bed? Really ....... see your doc and let him or her know whats going on. Your body is sending you a message. Could be a simple answer. ~M

My mom who is 65 is experiencing sudden and very extreme temperature changes. She will be having a hot flash one minute and be freezing the next. Is this related to a chemical imbalance? She s had several strokes and is on various medications .

good day doc. My sister has bone cancer on her pelvis and on one of her left rib. She was discharged from the hospital two days ago with pain management medications prescribed by her physician. She had slightly low hemoglobin and WBC in her CBC while she was confined in the hospital. Now she has manifested fever which rapidly rises to 40.5 Celsius and rapidly drops back to normal after 30 minutes after giving her paracetamol. What could be the possible cause in this sudden rise and fall of her temperature? She had two episodes already. Could this be related to her cancer advancing or due to an infection? Thank you.
