unusual body temperatures

3 years, 1 month ago

I’ve been insanely curious to why I am so warm blooded and have been my whole life. i’m just a regular women. i don’t do sports, eat normal, work normal. really there’s nothing different then others. I’ve always know i was warm blooded. for me its nice but others get to warm when they sit by me to long and soon flee my presence to get some cold air haha. my exes always laid outside the sheets (while i was snuggled under them) because during the night my heath doubles. when i get sick i get 4 times hotter then normal and that’s where it gets almost unbearable for me. i only sweat when i’m sick but that could be because of the sick enzymes wanting to get out too. i love hot shower but those should only make me cold. i love warm sheets but they should make me sweat. even when i wear short summer clothes i still radiate allot of warmth. oh and one more thing, my dad is also warm blooded but not as warm as me.
(sorry for going/dragging on so long) i was wondering what you guys think would explane this? I’ve looked up some things witch should be the reason but they are not… maybe i just have a big heart? ;) love to hear what you guys think, thanks. :)

If involved in sports, you will develop what is called an athletic heart. meaning, you pump more blood from the left ventricle than someone who is sedentary. Thus you have a better blood supply to the periphery.
Typical healthy adult heart pumping volume is ~5 liters/min, resting. Maximum capacity pumping volume extends from ~25 liters/min for non-athletes to as high as ~45 liters/min for Olympic level athletes.
The average body temp for people is 98.6 degrees, but that is only the average. Some people’s body temp is 97 degrees and would be feverish at 98.6.

edit: you should think i always have red cheeks? i’m as pale as can be. oh and another thing, the heat radiates trough my whole body so its not just my hands or feet or whatever.

also if you lift weights it thickens the wall of your heart, which is actually bad for you, one reason it’s better to do cardio.
i should add, heavy heavy weight, not just regular lifting.

aye but i don’t do sports. like at all. i ride my bike to work and perhaps at work do manly things like picking up pallets and what not but i don’t think that would be weight lifting or something… i’ve been raised with 2 big brothers so i learned to be tough(strong) :)

lol that’s cool. everyone has a different body temperature, it’s not constant all the time either. but you’re special, so it’s cool that you’re hot blooded lol you should check your temperature at different times of the day, like when you wake up or are about to go to sleep or after you get out the shower or after a walk or work, all those have an effect on your body, maybe even your temperature.

@Phil idk man, this is what the web says “Hyperthyroidism is a condition in which the thyroid gland makes too much thyroid hormone. The condition is often referred to as an “overactive thyroid.” Symptoms: Difficulty concentrating; Fatigue; Frequent bowel movements;…”

it also says: “some of the symptoms of hyperthyroidism are nervousness, irritability, increased perspiration, heart racing, hand tremors, anxiety, difficulty sleeping, thinning of the skin, fine brittle hair, and muscular weakness—especially in the upper arms and thighs.” and non of those apply to me.
@Jesse G. S. yeah ill try measuring my temperature at different times of the day and see what stats that will give me :)

I have the same problem, it didn’t happen till this year. My whole life I’ve pretty much been cold blooded, then this year i started heating up. I try to find ways to stay cool but it’s not working.

@Jesse G. S., Lifting weights wont thicken your myocardium. Cardio will though.

Hyperthorydism is the answer.
I suffer from this and i experence extream body tempeture changes all the time. I’ll be freezing when it’s warm out and boiling when it’s cold out. Sometimes so extream that lying next to a person for 2 minutes will cause such a sweat break, my ex boyfriend use to find my overheated body to extream for me to even lie next to him.
