Always Freezing Cold And Overweight
I'm a 33 year old female who is quite overweight. During exercise (in the middle of workout) I break out in a cold sweat. Should I be worried?
Not necessarily: Heavy sweating with exercise, by itself, is not an indication of coronary heart problems, especially if you are able to continue the exercise without having to stop and if you don't experience any unusual chest discomfort, pressure, heaviness(feels like an elephant is sitting on my chest), lightheadedness or severe shortness of breath.*** If you have additional risk factors see comments below ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Nearly two-thirds of the United States population is overweight. There are many ways to determine if a person is overweight, but experts believe that a person's body mass index (BMI) is the best way to assess an adult's weight in relation to their height. * A BMI between 18.5 and 24.9 is considered normal. * Adults with a BMI between 25 and 29.9 are considered overweight. There are exceptions. For example, an athlete may have a higher BMI but not be overweight. * Adults with a BMI greater than 30 are considered obese. * Adults with a BMI greater than or equal to 40 are considered extremely obese. * Anyone more than 100 pounds overweight is considered morbidly obese. A person with a high BMI may have a normal amount of body fat is they have ...Read more

My knees ache a lot especially in the cold when I'm laying.... I'm only 22 but I'm overweight ..... Should I just lose weight before I see a doctor?
Lately i get really cold, lethargic, and lightheaded before meal times. After eating i feel better for a few hours. Not overweight, eat healthy.?
May be hypoglycemia: These symptoms could well be due to hypoglycemia, which is low blood sugar. To confirm this you should have your blood sugar tested when having symptoms and/or do a glucose tolerance test. The treatment is to avoid sugars/simple carbs and to eat more frequently. Whatever the cause, these symptoms warrant evaluation by a doctor. See http://www.Umm.Edu/altmed/articles/hypoglycemia-000090.Htm. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Always feeling cold and sometimes chilled. At work my nose is stuffy but just got over being sick
Why feeling chilled. I'm 60 years old
Hypothyroidism: Feeling cold/chilled when everyone else around is fine is a sign of hypothyroidism. So is being overweight/obese, although less specific. You listed hypothyroidism but no medication. Best to check w/your FamilyDoc. Ask for TSH to monitor thyroid function. Anemia could also make you feel cold, just like getting sick. But neither would "cause" overweight. ...Read more
