    Ok, this is one of those am I alone here questions. For the last couple of months I can't seem to regulate my temperature. I'm hot and sweaty one minute and then shivering the next. It happens at night, during the day, when I'm sitting at my desk doing nothing, there seems to be no rhyme or reason. If I were a woman, I'd attribute it to the change, but I'm not. I do want to get my hormone levels checked though, could that be it? Does anyone have this kind of reaction because of meds? Just trying to pinpoint the reasons. Right now I'm sweating and cold all at the same time. Just one more thing to deal with.

    UGH.

    Hi Eric,
    Kim here, TJ's mom - TJ suffered horribly with an inablility to regulate his body temperature....the CFIDS specialist we found told me that this is one of the hallmarks of the disorder - so no, you are not alone, and as TJ is an almost 13 year old male - it's definately NOT menopause.
    Hang in there - like many of the other symptoms for TJ this one seems to wax and wane.

    .. both and I'm way past the change. I do know that Ultram (tramadol) will give you hot flashes though...

    I have FMS and CFS and my body cannot regulate temp

    Since I cannot control my body temp, I am constantly turning the thermostat in the house up and down!!!

    Drives my husband nuts!

    It is actually embarrasing

    Hi Eric,

    I have the same problem; hot one minute and cold the next; I dread my electric bill for this month; Its probably going to to be high.

    I hope they will go away. I have woke up at night and felt like I had been "hosed down".

    It IS definitely a miserable feeling, I do hope they will just go away for you,

    I am always soooo cold that I wear twice as many clothes as anyone else. But when I do finally warm up - and I also noticed Ultram will do this - I have sweaty chills, then just burn up!

    I go to bed with my thermostat on 74 and still use an electric blanket set on 7....but around 2 a.m. I kick everything off and will be soaked. Then here comes the cold again and the blanket is back on.

    No fun at all - - but I'm sure glad spring is almost here. I do feel better in the summer. It just isn't long enough!

    Friends - Jole

    So nice to know that it's not only me. I'm on Ultram as well, didn't know that was one of the side effects. Although I'm on so many things, who knows.

    Just another joy of this dd.

    Thanks again everyone.
