I'm 18, so I know I'm definitely not going through menopause. But I am constantly either too cold, or too hot... and I don't know why.
While most air conditioned places during the summer feel good to most people, I can't handle it. I get so cold and uncomfortable. When I sleep, my house is about 80 degrees and I sleep with a heated mattress pad and goose down blanket. And most of the time I am generally very cold.
Now the weird thing is that all of sudden, I'll get really hot. I'll feel like I'm burning up and I can't breathe, I'm sweating and everything is too stuffy. So I have to sit in front of a fan or the air conditioning. And then a few moments later I'll feel freezing cold again and take a hot bath or something. And sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night with my body obviously over heated because I'm all sweaty, but inside I feel freezing cold. So I cuddle up in the heated mat and turn the cool fan on at the same time lol. I don't get it!
I don't know why this is. It's summer now... and it's not like I had been over exercising or out in the sun. All I know is that for some reason, I get hot and cold so rapidly. And not only that, I'm always tired and hungry. I feel too calm sometimes. Like the other day a car almost hit me... and I saw it coming but didn't feel any fear or anything... My reaction speed is really slow... and I feel like I'm in a fog all the time. I just sleep all day sometimes. When I stand up, I get dizzy and can't see anything but black for a few seconds. And I can't feel comfortable temperature wise. I don't know why this is! And the doctors don't know what it is either.
I'm on Risperdal, Adderall, Meclazine (rarely take it), Trazodone, Celexa (which I have kinda quit) and am about to start Pristique.
If anyone has advice, I'd really appreciate it!
