No answers for you, just empathy. I suffer the same thing. I live in Texas, it's still a balmy 80-something degrees outside at 11pm, and I'm wearing jeans, socks, a tshirt and a sweatshirt - and I'm still COLD.

I get too hot at night and wake up in a pool of sweat, and of course the instant I step out of bed I'm freezing again.

I've had nights where I had to get up to change my shirt (usually a tank top) and lay an extra layer between me and the sweat dampened sheets. Otherwise I lay there and shiver because the sheets are damp.

You are definitely not alone. :(

Count me in as another too cold, too hot person. My comfortable temperature bands are very limited. I have a sweatshirt on in mid-summer evening while talking to you, my standard evening garb. Sometimes I get to wear something short-sleeved during the day, though not often. Sweat up the bed at night after shivering when I get in :lol: I don't get it :(

I'm with you! Things have gotten better now that my thyroid is no longer out of whack. When it was, I had blankets everywhere. In my van, in every room of my house. I also had a lot of little fans because it didn't take much for me to overheat at all. At the time I was living in Alameda, CA where it was pretty much 70 degrees year round.

These days I need it to be 70. If it is, I am fine. But even a few degrees over that and I am sweating. If it's much cooler then I have to get out the winter clothes. I just turned 50. Don't know if my age is a factor or not. It was worse during my 40's.

Your not an oddball at all as you have seen. The only thing I have found that helps is a fan on low pointed at my bed. Usually I am cold when I go to bed but at some point I get too warm. I toss off the blankets to the side usually at some point in the night. I then will wake up a bit when I cool off and pull them back over me. I also find no matter what when I wake up in the morning even if I am a comfortable temp as soon as I get up I get overheated. It seems I am always adding or losing clothes. I was at the store today with a flannel shirt and a sweatshirt over it, I got some strange looks, as usual, since everyone else was in shorts and T's. Oh well at least we aren't alone in our oddly functioning body thermostats.

Thank God! I thaught I was just getting old. I used to winter sports and the hotter the summer day, the better. Now, if I'm out in the sun on a hot day, I feel like I'm going to spontaneously combust, and I dread going from the house to the car in the winter! Guess I'm not alone!

Add me to the broken thermostat club...was always a coldy until the past 10 years...now if is over 70 or humid I overheat extremely fast...also can't exercise past 7am unless its in the winter.

Since being diagnosed with celiac I was hopeful my heat intolerence would improve with diet change. No such luck-gotten worse - seems to have gotten worse every summer for several years.

I most recently was told I have heat induced urticaria - basically allergic to heat - still waiting for appt with allergist to confirm diagnosis.

Not after the first time it comes out of their mouth :D

Since they think it is all in your mind the next time you get too hot and start to sweat use their shirt (while they are still in it) and when they get offended say, 'What your shirt can't be wet, it's all in your mind)

Just kidding of course.

Yes, it is possible to have an allergy to heat/cold. My hubby is allergic to cold--breaks out in hives! About all you can do is avoid it :o
