Every once in a while I get really hot and feel dizzy as if I were sick but I know I'm not and I don't have a headache. Anyone have any ideas?

My son (aged 8) often feels like this and when I test, the sugar is on the high side - 14 and higher. I can even feel the heat if I feel the portion on his neck right below the round bone behind the ear( sorry don't know how else to describe this eara!). It literally feels hotter than normal.

feeling hot or flushed can be a symptom of hyperglycemia.... I often feel hot or flushed when my sugars are up.... do a finger stick.... if you BGL levels are normal and you're still concerned...just measure your temp.

That's funny because my hubby's not diabetic, but I just took his temperature because he's all hot and sweaty. I had to laugh because his temp's a perfect 96.9! I don't know what's going on!

Too funny!

Take care of him nurse Tanya! :D :nurse:

Virginia Woolf: “Consider how common illness is, how tremendous the spiritual change that it brings, how astonishing, when the lights of health go down, the undiscovered countries that are then disclosed, what wastes and deserts of the soul a slight attack of influenza brings to view, what precipices and lawns sprinkled with bright flowers a little rise of temperature reveals, what ancient and obdurate oaks are uprooted in us by the act of sickness, how we go down in the pit of death and feel the waters of annihilation close above our heads and wake thinking to find ourselves in the presence of the angels and the harpers when we have a tooth out and come to the surface in the dentist's arm-chair and confuse his "Rinse the mouth-rinse the mouth" with the greeting of the Deity stooping from the floor of Heaven to welcome us - when we think of this, as we are so frequently forced to think of it, it becomes strange indeed that illness has not taken its place with love and battle and jealousy among the prime themes of literature”

thats exactly what I mean. I test and I'm at 100 or something perfect like that. Could this be thyroid problems or me just being a hypochondriacc?

I think it might have something to do with the thyroid, are you on synthroid? Sometimes that happens to me too, but usually my BS is on the rise when it happens.

Well, this might totally be an old wives tale, but my Grandma (who is 99) swears by it.
Whenever I (or anyone else) felt like they had a fever but didn't, she called it an internal fever, and would treat us just like we actually had a fever.
More than once we'd actually be sick within a day or so...maybe it's some sort of internal precursor...I don't know!

I only get hot and sweaty when I'm running quite low. I tend to feel cold when I'm high (aside from feeling really ill).

It's also possible that you are chronically dehydrated. That can cause those symptoms. We are all so prone to dehydration, even if we drink a lot of water and have great blood suga levels.

It could also be the thyroid issue as people are suggesting.

It could also be hypoglycemia. I have had Type 1 for 14 years, and I no longer get jittery with slight or even extreme hypoglycemia, BUT I get sweaty and hot. For example, it will be winter and I will have to take off my coat for a while outside. Only recently have I been able to recognize that the sweating is from hypoglycemia and NOT from me walking too fast (as I tend to do lol, I live in NYC, and we all walk too fast).

Can you elaborate on this statement... how are we ALL prone to dehydration.... there would have to be another factor thats not easy to miss..like extreme HEAT to make your statement true.....

One doesn't get dehydrated by drinking enough fluids.

Me too.


I have the hot feeling a LOT of the time . . . and I rarely have a fever, even though I feel I should!

I turn cold when I drink something cold, and get hot when I drink something hot. My husband thinks I'm strange!
I also,
- don't usually drink enough water
- take synthroid (very stable at .2 mg daily, which is more than most people take)
- take accuretic for bp (controlled well)
