Why do I sometimes wake up during the night drenched in sweat? I only use light blankets and i know it's not just overheating and it isn't a fever.

Night sweats: Although these may be to hormonal changes during adolescence it would be helpful to know when you are taking your temperature. Since sweating is one of the body's ways of lowering temps, you should be taking your temp before the onset of the sweating to see if you have a fever. This is a common occurrence in TB and in some lymphomas. See a doctor. ...Read more

Took my 7wk old baby to the park & it was a 30 deg day with slightly cool breeze.Was in her pram covered.Worried about overheating.Seems ok no fever?

Healthy activity: A walk in the park is a wonderful way to get some exercise. On a very hot day, try to keep to shady areas and under the sunshade of your pram/buggy/stroller and wearing lightweight clothing. If the weather is making you uncomfortable, use that as a cue to find a cooler place or time to walk (early morning or evening) ...Read more

Tropical disease?: Complex issue that needs medical attention asap. Could be a tropical infectious disease from a variety of bacteria or parasites. Or die thug as simple as a food borne illness. If the local medical care is inadequate, you'll have to go to either a larger city, or back to the US. There's probably some expats there that could help find a good medical facility. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Differentiate between fever and hyperthermia?

Set point difference: Fever is due to an increase in the temperature regulatory set-point. This can be from many things, usually infection, but can be medications, cancer, (the list is large). Hyperthermia occurs when the body produces or absorbs more heat than it can dissipate. The set point is the same, the body just can't get the temperature down to the set point. Again many causes, heat stroke most common. ...Read more

Differnetiate between fever and hyperthermia?

Infections vs heat: Fever is almost aways a sign of an infectious process, most commonly viral--it is a natural defense mechanism to increase chemical process/reaction to help ward off the infection. Hyperthermia is often a result of body generating too much heat (exercising/working too hard)and its failure to evaporate the heat quickly, often because of excessive ambient temperature. I hope this explains it. :-). ...Read more

I was advised years ago to wear long sleeve shirts in very hot weather to help control overheating ..Is that true?

Yes, but...: Yes, that's true. Long sleeve shirts & pants will help in hot weather if it is thin, breathable (preferably cotton), light-colored clothes. This will keep the hot sun off your skin, perspire less, & lose less water. For example, in equatorial africa and the middle east, they normally wear long sleeves. This is not just cultural but a good tactic against the hot sun. Cover the neck & head too. ...Read more

Went for a long hike, rough terrain. Not in shape. I take lithium. I got overheated, nauseated is this sign of Li toxicity? Had lots of water n shade

Nausea, dehydration: Nausea can be one of the initial symptoms of lithium toxicity. Getting overheated and dehydrated is often a cause of lithium toxicity. However being on medications like Seroquel (quetiapine) and Lamictal can also make one feel a bit nauseous if dehydrated. It is vital to keep oneself well-hydrated when on meds like these. Glad you are ok now. ...Read more
