OK so I’m starting to get really concerned. I’m literally hot all the time. I used to not get hot at all before my daughter but now its like it can’t be cool enough. Before, I could go outside in this hot, southern weather and sweat SOME. Now, I pretty much leak sweat. Its crazy. I even have sweaty palms now.
I haven’t been gaining any weight or anything. So I don’t think its thyroid but I honestly don’t know.

Haha, I read the title of this thread and thought, “well damn, I’m hot all the time too!”
In all seriousness, though, s2bmzbrown: I’m not sure what could be causing it if it’s too early for hot flashes. I would ask your doctor the next time you have an appointment and until then, keep an eye out for any other changes to your health. Hope it’s nothing serious.

Oh, shoot… I was actually going to suggest a thyroid issue.
I’m like this also, but all testing previously has come up as a non-issue, so I’ve attributed it to the extra weight I’ve gained over the last few years : – / lol

How old is your daughter?
I would think it’s just your hormones all whacked up from pregnancy and they need some time to get back to normal. But I’m no doctor lol

TheGridMonster: Lol I know right. I haven’t really noticed anything else other than that. Its so odd.
indyJEEP: Lol mine could be the same since I’m 30 pounds more than pre pregnancy
cls9q: she’s 2, actually. Which is why this is so odd to me.

Drink plenty of water, at least half your weight in ounces of water. I’ve notices a huge shift in my body temperature when I drink enough water.

I’m the same way. It happened a couple years ago, my husband has a hard time sleeping next to me because I will sweat like crazy and be hot to the touch. I’m always hot, I am so happy when winter shows up because I’d rather be too cold than too hot. I’ve got nothing wrong with me, just a high body temp most of the time.

s2bmzbrown: It’s possible! I don’t have a good excuse (like a pregnancy) for weight gain, but I’m about 20lbs. heavier than I was 4 years ago, soooo that could easily add to the heat factor (wearing a “fat jacket” of sorts, lol!) and I never had the issue before then.

That’s me! I don’t have an answer for you though!

I’m hot all the time now too, my DD is 7.5 months old. Before her I was cold all the time, now I’m hot all the time. I weigh less than my pre-preg weight and my thyroid is fine. Must just be a new mom thing but it’s annoying.

s2bmzbrown: “I haven’t been gaining any weight or anything. So I don’t think its thyroid but I honestly don’t know.”
Symptoms of an overactive thyroid include being hot all the time, and losing weight. Symptoms of an UNDERactive thyroid include being cold, and gaining weight. So the fact that you haven’t gained weight doesn’t mean that it’s not a thyroid issue, and remember that not everyone has all symptoms. Now, it may have absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with your thyroid, but if you’re concerned about your health, you should go and see your family doctor.

That’s how some people are. My mom and sister could both stay cool until they started having kids.

I had an overactive thyroid issue and I washot ALLL the time. Walking around the house would have me sweating like a pig and wearing a jacket or coat outside? Forget it. Not to mention during the summer. Ughhhh. I had horrible sweaty pits (tmi? Lol) and my face was always gross. They prescribedme meds and I wason them for a year or so but they took me offf them for whatever reason n my levels have been normal since. I do still get hot a lil more than normal but itsnot as bad as it was. It could also be a side effect to amedicine you are taking if you take anything?

WarrenWE: I don’t, actually. Just B12 and fish oil.
I kinda feel like it could just be the new mom thing but I’m definitely going to ask my doctor about it
