Whether I Have Hypothalamic Syndrome?

As the subject suggests Im if I have Hypothalamic Syndrome. I am 21 years old, 6,3inches and 180lbs. A while ago it was confirmed by a doctor that my Hypothalamus was unstable at that time but I have been experiencing some symptoms that have been making me feel that it is a cascading problem as if (my symptoms are causing symptoms).

One that has been constant is a seemingly high temperature whenever I fall asleep. Whether I'm sitting or in bed the point of contact with my body becomes very hot and this a (daily occurance). Also constant is: whether I sleep for 5 hours or 5 mins I wake up dehydrated no matter how much water I drink. One more thing connected to my sleep is that when I nod off for short intervals I experience a quickened heart beat, I suppose I could call that (palpitations).

Temperature spikes, Unregulated water and salt levels these cause me to have irregular bowel movements for eg. (If I experience diarrhea one day I will have trouble to go again up till 48hrs or more sometimes.

All together these symptoms have me feeling constantly tired and drained. What can I do to treat my problems.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
These symptoms are consistent with hypopituitarism. I would suggest you to have thyroid function tests, LH/FSH level and prolactin assay to sort it out.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
