I have had uncontrollable body heat accompanied by profuse sweating for the last two weeks, and the kicker is that I'm in a nice cool air-conditioned room while this is happening. It feels like body heat generated from a sunburn. It's at its worst while I'm at work, nevertheless, it's constant. I've been doing what I can to control break-outs on my chest and back because of it. As I've mentioned before, I'm a Dental Hygienist who works chairside with my patients. I wear scrubs, and of course, my face mask and loupes. This last week my right hand started going numb with the exception of my fingertips in pain and throbbing, which was odd, since I'm left-handed!
What is going on here? we're clearly not talking about menopause here. Is anyone else out there having, or have had, these symptoms? what's your advice
