Suffering from body heat. Particularly my lower legs - calf area. Suggest

When I wake up in the very early morning ... I find my body overheats and I have to get out of bed. Particularly my lower legs - calf area. They get really hot 'inside' - I end up sleeping on the couch in the living room to cool off. I am 76 years old and live alone so I am a little concerned. All my faculties are working OK And I am otherwise quite healthy apart from this heat thing. I do not take medication and don't do much exercise apart from the usual walking around my home or at the shopping mall. I do watch my sugar because there is diabetes in my family tree so I take sweetener and rarely eat deserts.

You are a 76 year old and taking care of yourself well.
It is natural for our body to be 1*C more than the normal body temperature in early hours of the day.
As for the cramps in your calf that may also cause increase in body temperature.
Cramps may be due to dehydration because you are an active old man. So rehydrate yourself well.
Look for any vitamin deficiencies also.
