Heat and sun intolerance that nothing seems to help. Less than 15 minutes outside in the sun doing mild yard work I go into heat exhaustion.
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
Started out as prickly pins and needles feeling followed by hives and rash on my arms and legs anytime my body temperature rises. Got tested for everything from thyroid to lupus. Everything came back negative. Finally thought i had cholenergic urticaria but none of the medications helped and after a year and a half of all this and not being able to sweat also my symptoms changed. I no longer get the hives or rash and now i sweat off and on. But doing anything out in the sun for more than 15 minutes brings on heat exhaustion and if I don’t take care of it right away it goes into heat stroke fast. Also still anytime my body temperature rises , even inside, my body starts to overheat. My skin turns red and heat will radiate from it. The only thing that helps is cold water, ice, air conditioning. I can’t keep living like this. I’m trapped inside basically and no doctors have any clue or idea as to how to help.
