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?

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 more

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 more

I'm overweight, tired, depressed have shaky hands, cold feet & have developed beaus lines. I've been thyroid tested before. Should i get a 2nd opinion?

Yes, get 2nd opinion: You should definitely seek a second opinion from an internist or endocrinologist. Perhaps you need more extensive testing for thyroid disease. It is also possible that you have more than one disease process occurring at one time. ...Read more

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
Over weight?

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

Hip 2 foot leg pain, sometimes foot turns ice cold. Broke knee cap years ago, not diabetic, not over weight. Cause for concern?

Hip 2 foot leg pain, sometimes foot turns ice cold. Broke knee cap years ago, not diabetic, not over weight. Cause for concern?

Go see a doctor: Pain that radiates from hip 2 toes is usually caused by a pathology above the hip. Your patella (knee cap) fracture, most likely, has nothing to do with this pain. Your back is a likely candidate, but your history of heart disease and the fact that your foot turns cold, makes me think of a vascular (arterial) cause for your pain. I would definitely recommend you see a doctor to begin a workup. ...Read more

I'm 50 and 40 lb overweight?

Change your life: At the most basic level dieting takes no time or money. You can choose to eat less. I am sure you are busy, we all are. Do you have anything more important than your life? We each have 24 hours per day. Find a way to demand that you have earned the right to spend 1 of those hours each day to keep you alive. Would a check for $1million convince you? Would a funeral convince you? What will it take? ...Read more

How do I know if I am overweight?

How do I know if I am overweight?

Overweight: It has its flaws but to my knowledge the gold standard measurement out there right now is the BMI (Body Mass Index). Using this chart can help you determine if you are overweight or not. In my opinion it doesn't account for muscle mass very well. Ultimately, it's using the chart and discussing your results with your PCP. ...Read more
