So.. I don't actually know what's going on. I'm feeling really really hot in a cold house. I get over heated easily but it's never this bad. A little bit of background; I ride horses with a group called Westernaires, the funny thing is I'm allergic to mostly everything out there, including the horses. Because of that I have to wear a hoodie outdoors. Today it reached 90+ degrees for the hour I was actually outdoors. I spent one hour inside and the rest of the time (3 hours) inside an air conditioned car in the shade. I have been home for 4 hours and was fine, but this started a couple minutes ago and I can't seem to cool down. I'm wearing barely anything and I'm still hot. Anyone know what's going on? TLDR; I have to wear a hoodie/long sleeve anytime I'm outdoors because of my allergies and I am extremely hot after being inside a 60° house for 4 hours. What's wrong with me?

      @PoopityScoop thanks. one doctor gave me a med but it didn't work. I'm pretty sure it's side effect( sweating is stated as one) of two different meds I'm taking. I just live with it cause the benefits of the meds outweigh the uncomfortable sweating. It's bothersome, mostly, when I want to look nice when going somewhere b/c getting ready makes my face & hair sweat the most Sometimes I let it get me agitated, then I'm sweaty & unhappy. It's up to me, how I let it effect me. Now that I'm not depressed I can be more positive about everything, in my life, that is tough. If I'm OK in my brain, I can choose. I couldn't look at unpleasantness rationally, when I was severely depressed. All I could feel was victimized and hopeless. My life hasn't gotten better but the way I look at it, is so different. If I catch myself going back into "stinking thinking", I can stop it much more quickly, now. ( sorry to go off topic, but the sweating used to really bother me and it is extreme, but my attitude made it worse, and everything else that I was struggling with)

      Its odd b/c I have issues with the heat. I sweat like a horse( pigs don't really sweat, exactly) Usually though, after being really too overheated for a long period of time, I get chills. That's how I know I've done too much sun or exercise. You may wanna ask close relatives, if you have any, if that staying hot for hours, happens to them. A genetic component could be involved & that's just the way your DNA deals with overheating. If no one else does, it sounds like something that I would investigate with an internal medicine doctor or if you have a good family doc, who is knowledgeable. I feel for you, not being to cool down. I stay hotter longer than most people, but I believe it's medication related. Once I start sweating, like when I get ready to go out. Shower, drying my hair and changing clothes a couple of times can get me going and I can't stop it, eben when im sitting. It serms to have a timeclock and once it starts it has to complete dome kind of cycle. I get so annoyed b/c sweat is all over my face and no make up would stay on. It sounds silly, but it is miserable getting soaked just to go out for an event. I mention this b/c I don't know if/what meds you're on. My meds have a huge influence making me heat intolerant and causing me to sweat profusely.Im also older, so menopause made me hot, too, but at 66 I should be done with hot flashes, for the most part. I mean, I get literally drenched when I play pickleball. My hair is dripping and every piece of clothing is soaked. So , I feel for you, there. Keep us posted and let us know what you find out.

      For cooling down: maybe try a cold bath or shower or put some icepacks on your extremities/head in particular

      Is it pollen allergies? Might have heat stroke or something from being outside. Water is your friend

        @Nantis Maybe, even though I've had a ton of water today. It's the pollen, dust, weeds, trees, and horses. It was super dusty and hot today 😭
