burning up
strangest thing doctor, I dont feel ill at all but my skin feels like i have a heavy fever. My head, face, neck, back and chest, stomach and sometimes my thighs are HOT almost all the time. Do you have some clue as to what this is all about? Im 31, taking yaz but no other medication. I exercise everyday and eat a healthy diet (no processed, pre packaged, preservatives, colourants, tartrazine and salicylates)
This has been going on since before Christmas

Your symptoms can be benign with no apparent cause. It is however, important to consult your doctor for blood tests to exclude diabetes and thyroid disease. In some cases, patients who suffer from auto-immune diseases, like multiple sclerosis, have reported a heat sensation. Do not be too concerned. Rather consult your doctor for a thorough examination.
