Excessive Body Heat

I am having an issue with excessive body heat. This started back at the end of last August (2014). I had just returned from Kenya and Tanzania. While there I was taking Malarone (an anti-malarial) and also took some Cipro for a UTI I developed while there. My body gradually started heating up until by early October 2014 I was extremely uncomfortable. I felt like heat was radiating out of my body - all over my body. Blankets at night in bed trapped in this heat, making me very uncomfortable. My body feels warmer in general and I feel like there was a giant heating pad underneath the surface of my skin radiating out heat. I feel uncomfortably hot from sitting (the underside of my legs and bum/whatever body parts touch the chair) or whenever two of my body parts are in contact (crossing my legs, for example).

My thyroid is normal as is all my blood work. My temperature is normal (I actually tend to run a bit on the cool side) and I do not have a fever. I am female, age 37.

I have been told by my doctor that the issue may have to do with my enteric nervous system. She has told me to abstain from alcohol, as that is an irritant to this condition. Prior to being told that, I did notice that alcohol made the heat condition worse.

I have tried Belladonna 30 and Secale 30. They both created a sensation of coolness superficially, but I could tell that neither was addressing the root cause and my body produced just as much heat. I have tried a couple of doses of Sulphur 30, which produced no effect.

I am interested to hear if there is another remedy that I should try. Any input will be greatly appreciated.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
read about flouric acid and lachesis.

They both sound intriguing. I've purchased both at the 30c potency. Any tips on how to take?

Anyone with any other thoughts on the matter? I'm open to any and all suggestions.

I have tried the Lachesis, but it did not help. Still waiting to receive the Floric Acid and will then give that a try.

I saw my doctor recently and she mentioned by autonomic nervous system/hypothalamus...

I used to be a colder-temperature person, so my body generating this much heat is very disturbing. I was used to my skin being cool to the touch and now it is quite warm. Now that it is summer, I have noticed that the direct heat of the sun is very uncomfortable/unbearable. Also, when I do become very warm, my hands, feet, and ears become hot/uncomfortable. When I lay down at night, my hands become really warm and that lasts for maybe 15 minutes.

Does anyone else have any ideas/thoughts/suggestions? I would be extremely appreciative of any advice from an expert on homeopathy.

How long did you take the Malarone for? What did you notice
besides heat after taking-any nerve issues, hallucinations, etc.

One of the side effects is increased sensitivity
to the sunlight and feeling sunburned.

You may need to de tox from this-

Did your blood tests include a liver panel?

I took the Malarone for 3 weeks.

I'm not sure if I specifically had a liver panel done. I did have the following:

Total Bilirubin = .4
Globulin = 2.0
Albumin = 4.9
Total Protein = 6.9

Are there any specific tests I should be looking for in my blood work reports to see if they were performed?

I've taken some liver detox and support supplements since returning from Africa. I would not say I ever felt sunburned. At times my skin felt so hot that it felt like it was almost burning, but along with this are the other heat symptoms: increased body heat/feeling warmed, feeling of way too much heat radiating out of body. I found in the winter I wasn't really sensitive to the sun since it was so cold outside; the sun sensitivity comes in when it is warm outside.

What country are you in now?

I think you need another Dr. You did not have a complete
liver panel- you can google what that is.

Your bilirubin count is high- over normal.
Your Globulin count is low.

You can also google forums for people who have taken the malaria
drug you took and investigate if they are having or have had
similar symptoms.

Either way, you need a CORRECT diagnosis of what is going on with
your liver.

( This is a question to an MD from someone with a 2.2 globulin level)

Mar 20, 2006
Causes of low globulin level can be caused by malnutrition, liver disease, severe burns, or severe kidney disease.

However, the globulin is just below the low threshold - it may be worth repeating to ensure this isn't lab error.

These options can be discussed with your personal physician.

Followup with your personal physician is essential.

I am in the USA. My blood work was done at Massachusetts General Hospital.

My blood work is normal according to the results I received (I am including the reference ranges provided with my results). I understand that different medical institutions can use different ranges, but according to the results I received from one of the best reputed hospitals in the United States, my results were within the normal range.

Total Bilirubin = .4, normal range is 0.0-1.0md/dL

Globulin = 2.0, normal range is 1.9-4.1g/dL

I have reports on blood work over the course of several months where maybe 50-75 things were tested and everything came back normal.

I have googled for people who took Malarone/anti-malarials and have not found anyone reporting similar symptoms with excess body heat.

I stopped taking Malarone at the end of August 2014, and since then (10.5 months) have not experienced any symptoms having to do with liver damage.

I don't know why major med centers have
different values on these things.

Something is very out of balance here.
In chinese medicine too much heat in the liver
leads to too much heat in hands and feet etc.

Don't know if you have done acupuncture but
they listen to the organ pulses in your wrists
and can tell what organ system is out of
balance. They give acupuncture and chinese
herbs to correct this and then when you go back
they can tell if things are balancing out

I would suggest you find a very experienced
acupuncturist to help solve this. It is not
something to try do yourself, bc all the
organ systems have to be taken into account,
so it is possible another system has to be
raised up in vitality to then drain out
another one and the acupuncturist will know
what else if anything is weak.

So I have an update on my issue. I have been seeing an acupuncturist as well as an Ayurvedic doctor and an integrative medicine doctor. The consensus is that my issue was triggered by Cipro. My integrative medicine doctor thinks the nerves in my gut were damaged by the Cipro, and that my issue is with my nervous system. My body isn't producing heat so much as my perception of heat is highly sensitized. Warm days feel very hot to me. The sun feels way too hot. Warm rooms feel too warm. Even my own body heat feels way too warm. I have been told that my gut nerves are giving a bad message to my hypothalamus, which is causing me to interpret anything that is warm as waaaaay to warm. So essentially I am super sensitive to heat/hot weather/sun/anything warm/my own body heat.

Given this piece of information, does anyone have a homeopathic remedy to recommend? I know this is a hard case and I am presenting a difficult problem, so I appreciate all suggestions.

Did you take probiotics after Cipro?

Cipro was the antibiotic for Anthrax victims, and after 9-11
somehow the pharma companies got the MD's to give that
drug out as the normal antibiotic for everything. People in
my family who were prescribed that all had immediate crazy
nerve reactions in the spine as soon as they took it. They
stopped the prescription and the nerves went back to normal.

I would advise anyone, ask what the antibiotic is and refuse
to accept Cipro.

If you have not done the probiotics, I would start them.
I would suggest you go to a whole Foods, and Get
the Dr. Perlmutters general brand for your gender.

Start one a day-This brand has a large variety of strains,
and that is what you need- this needs to be done for at least
2 months.

I am only on forum for brief amounts of time- I would also
advise you look thru forum and click on Rishimba or Akshaymohl,
and see their email address. You could ask them what to take
for homeopathic and give them the link to this thread.
