During Sleep My Body Temperature Rise to the 100's (Page 2)

electricity?
i have always had the same problem. i have been told you could cook something on me when i sleep. cold hands and feet as well, get cold very easily, and when it gets very hot i sweat easily. i have a feeling its definantly something to do with circulation, but i think it has to do with the electrical current in our bodies as well. i tend to have a high electrical current running through me, i shock everyone when i come into contact with them, mostly during colder season, but still on a regular basis. anyone else have this symptom as well?

I aIm the same way. I can walk across the concrete floor in rubber soled shoes and get shocked by running water. Weird, right? I'm so hot right now I feel like 105 degrees and I'm feeling all puffy. I'm also about 1/4 cherokee Indian and get the cold feet and hands especially after I eat. Wish someone could answer our questions.

tired of no sleep and throbbing head
I have been to different doctors. The last one told me I could be hypochondria. I have had brain- cat scan and 3 MRI's of my brain. The one thing that did show up was 2 cc blood flow restriction in the sinus of my brain. They say I could have been born with this. I had previously dealt with a chronic sinus infection with no symptoms such as nasal drip or sinus headache above my eyes. I wonder if this fungus infection went into the sinus of my brain. I have this throbbing behind my eyes and on the right side of my head it wakes me up at night and I also feel that it worsens with body degree.

High temp at night.
I have the exact symptoms you have discribed also. Many people have posts that include health problems but I am very healthy. Google monks body temp rising during meditation. I read an article about monks and how their body temp rises during meditation. I'm wondering if my sleep is creating the same meditative effect. It's the only explaination I can find that seems probable

body heat on at night!
I also have this problem with body heat and night sweats. If my husband gets up in the middle of the night to have a snack...sometomes when he comes back to bed his legs are cold and I usually cool my legs off by putting them on his. I also have Multiple Sclerosis which does not help. I suggest that this is an Endocrine Challenge (Thyroid) or maybe Brain related somehow.

rising body temp while sleeping
How strange to know that all of us have similiar issues with our body temps rising during sleep.Yet quite aggrevating that no one seems to have an answer!I am a 30 yr old female & in pretty good health,except that I have neck problems & am on chronic pain meds.I was wondering if any of you have any pain issues or are on any type of meds other than for blood pressure?This problem never really concerned me until recently.My husband says Im the only one he knows whos temp rises during the night.I also am a VERY heavy sleeper & can easily sleep through 4-5 alarm clocks.Strangely my husband is the same way (heavy sleeper)& he isnt on any meds.I take mine as prescribed & dont drink.The thought of spontaneously combusting is a little scary huh?Anyone out there have any ideas???

I have exactly the same symptoms
I've had a problem with night sweats for several years now, and I always wake up feeling very warm to the touch. My boyfriend was the one that noticed I radiated heat when I was sleeping. Despite being a healthy 27 year old, my doctor doesn't seem very concerned, however, it is super annoying to wake up in a sweat each night and have to change my shirt! This can't be normal.

Same thing here.
I have to flip my pillow every time I wake up due to it being drenched in sweat. I can't touch my wife because I overheat her within 2 min and she'll start sweating from my bdy heat. I'll sweat through any covers.

I'm a 37 year old male, in shape, no medical problems. Work outside in the heat of Florida during the day. Don't drink, no meds. I do smoke 1 1/2 packs a day, but slow down smoking after 6pm.

It's kinda hard cuddleing with the spouse when I "Flame on" at night like the Human Torch.

Similar but...
Again no answers just resignation...
I'm a 42 year old woman and I have overheated at night since forever and (un)funnily enough all 4 of my children do too to some degree - we just accept it as 'normal for us'. Perhaps of note is that we all have quick, shallow breathing and one of my daughters and I have inherited my father's snoring. Otherwise we are all helthy and not overweight.
I live in the UK so it's never scarily hot but while I do have cold hands and feet during the day, I can't deal with heat at all - 17°C is about my limit. I get very hot, very qickly but only really sweat on my face and neck. On a mild day the sweating might just be on my nose and upper lip - weird...
I find putting my feet and hands outside the covers - even if it's just a sheet - helps enormously during that 'nodding off' period when I can't get off to sleep because I'm so hot.

Posting got me thinking again...

The mention of shallow breating got my mind ticking and I came across the link above (7th para under The Stages of Sleep). I have really vivid dreams - maybe we get 'stuck' in this stage of sleep with all the resultant physiological rsponses like raised body temp...

I guess i won't surprise you
yes i have had all these symptoms & lots more.Some of you say it's relative to thyroid, correct.we are ( i was) so hot at night, & i also had symptoms of MS which my sister has been diagnosed also. It's true, it is thyroid related & i found alot about it by googling ithyroid.com, natural salt, & water in water out. I don't overheat, actually this summer i slept every night with a blanket on. I don't get the muscle cramps & spasms, I have lost weight & my blood pressure has reduced from 150/80 to 122/64. It's all about balancing the nutrients in our bodies. If i can be of help to anyone you are welcome to send me a message(click my username logo(avatar)& select esnd a message.
Good luck!

FATTY LIVER MAYBE???
First,excuse my english, it's not my fist language).
This happens to me too, not every night and I can't establish a pattern. I have a difficult time getting my body warm enough to got to sleep but then in the middle of the night my body temperature rises (especially on the torso)but when I kick the covers and then I get terribly cold again.
During the day I'm usually cold (especially hands) and have been told that I have Raynaud's Syndrome.
I have read that having FATTY LIVER can cause overheating of the body, especially the face and torso.I have associated this also when I consume a lot of sugar...but, then again the fatty liver causes sugar cravings.
I'm glad I found this discussion board and hope to find a good explanation for all this111

Heat of the Night
I sweat every night, does not matter how cool my room is. The reason i am responding to this post is because i have Raynaud's Syndrome as well. So there seems to be a common link with everyone having poor circulation. My mother said i've gotten extremely hot when i sleep ever since i was an infant, so i think it's just genetics and circulation.

GENETICS?
Me too.. as long as i can remember (I'm 48yrs old). Normally cold hands and feet too at any other time. Hate the cold and love the heat. I wake up around 3am about everynight and throw all the blankets off. My blood pressure is low 109/73 and I am otherwise very healthy. I am of 1/4 swedish background and wondered if genetics might play a part?
My brother told me a story once. He went camping with his girlfriend in very cold weather and she had a go at him for whinging about the cold all the time (she felt fine). Later on however she almost suffered from hyper?thermia while my brother was fine.. could this be part of a normal defence mechanism for extreme cold? Much as we hate the cold we appear to have a greater chance of surviving sub-zero temperatures.

Sleep and high temps
Actually, it is a known fact that your body temperature falls during sleep. If it is higher, you should probably get checked out. But when you wake up due to the sweating, or feeling over heated, it is not that your body tempurature has risen, only that it has fallen, so that even the slightest heat will make your body feel hotter. Just as when you are sick and have a fever, you feel extremely cold. It's the same concept. So, unless you actually have your temp checked while you are sleeping, and it truly is high, everything you are experiencing is totally normal.

Normal? Under what standards? To me, i consider myself to be normal. But my Wife is like many others here, who I would say is not normal..but maybe within their group here, they would be considered normal....like if they lived on another planet. So sleeping with her I'd be a good normal temperature, with covers on, and never sweat or get hot. Her, she will be sleeping for 10 minutes...68-70 deg house...and in that little time she will already by super hot. So I'm sure she does not want to call that normal.

Overheating while sleeping
I thought I was the only one that did this...like I was just weird but I'm glad to see that is not the case. I too wake in the middle of the night usually numerous times because my body heat has risen so much that it makes me uncomfortable. I have tried sleeping with just a sheet but it doesn't work and it seems unless I have the weight of a blanket on me I can't sleep. I have the ceiling fan on full blast and another smaller fan on high blowing straight on me. I will toss and turn, switch between having the covers on and off, and have even awoke with my hands and feet burning so hot that I have stood in a bathtub running ice cold water over them. I sleep with a pillow between my legs and one night my boyfriend removed it and said he thought it was a heating pad because it was so hot.For me, with the sweating it is different every night. Sometimes I sweat sometimes I don't. I actually warm up our bedroom when I sleep...when I wake up,if I walk in the living room there is about a 10 degree temperature between the rooms, and then if I enter back into the bedroom it feels like a sauna. I don't have the cold hands a feet thing though...usually my hands and feet are always warm. I live in the midwest so our temperatures flucuate throughtout the year. I hate really cold and really hot weather. 65 to 85 degrees is how I like it. I have read to change to different sheets and to wear different pajamas but especially right now from the ecomomy who has the money to spend boucoos on that?? I have even read to get 600 count sheets. I'm sure that is costly. Anyway if anyone finds a solution or anything that helps I would love to know.

hot hot at night
i too radiate heat at night , i also find it near impossible to fall asleep if i am cold, even when its a warm night i have to have at least a sheet to cover me. in the day especially when i wake up i get clammy hands and feet but then as the day progresses i get cold hands and feet even in summer.
i dont really sweat at night but my boyfriend will literally not be able to touch me whilst im sleeping , i generally sleep well and its only for disturbing my boyfriend who then moves and disturbs me do i wake up during these hot spells, i am also very sensitive to cold air at these times and can literally be shivering until ive adjusted to the temperature change.
ive also noticed these same symptoms appear if we for example go to the cinema and im sat for a long period of time relaxed in these instances as i am awake im aware that im giving off heat but i realise i am actually feeling cool. then if we come out of the cinema i experience similar symptoms of really feeling the cold its very strange.
i am a active healthy 25 year old female and i have no idea why this happens but it has happened for as long as i can remember

extreme nightsweats and overheating
my now teenage son has had a terrible disorder of interupted sleep for bad nightsweats and overheating during sleep . He also has to extreme cold hands and feet problem. His immunity is so bad sick with sinus and colds all the time , very weak during the day , can not keep up with his peers. He started this bizzare of loss of sleep and nightsweats and overheating after traveling to the tropics and returning with and bad bug , nausae , joint pain, red eyes sensitive to light , headache and screwed up metobolism ever since. I really believe unless you were born with this disorder, i think there is an infectious agent involved. because my son sleep beautifully and totally healthy before travelling to the tropics. Once normal sleep goes you body will break down , sweating and overheating is disrupting your normal sleep of rejuvinating the body . We should all keeping pressing the medical community for answers.

I also heat up horribly during sleep, sometimes I get night sweats, most of the time I do not. I also spend a lot of my early sleep in the REM stage and my later sleep in the deep sleep stage (SWS) I suffer from inattentive ADHD as well. Do any of you find it difficult to wake in the morning as well and get a very upset stomach? When this happens to me it feels like my internal temperature is cooking my stomach and bowels. Cold drinks first thing in the morning cause my stomach to cramp so I keep some room temperature spring water or soda for first thing in the morning. I too have worried about the spontaneous combustion over the years. I live in a cooler northern climate, when I was growing up my room was not insulated and during the winter it would be extremely cold, and the summer sweltering. I am wondering if the extreme temperature fluctuations from my childhood threw off my chemical balance somehow maybe?? Or it could be the way my brain releases the chemicals for sleep? Not sure, but I would be very interested to see a study done on this. Would even be willing to participate. I will keep on searching until I find answers, until then good luck to everyone on finding some relief!

I am interested in stopping this.
My symptoms are extremely heated calves and cramping in the calf/feet muscles. Benedryl or sometimes wine, sometimes drinking water helps. I just don't want to get a sinus infection (drying the sinuses) from taking too much Benedryl.
