My 3 month old daughter has acold fever her body temperature is 36.2. She feels cold and she is sweating alot! I gave her 1.2ml of panedo?

Cold/fever: Babies sweat when they lose their heat and also with fevers. With fever, the central body gets warm and extremities are cold. Panadol can be given every 4 hrs for the temp until resolved. I would observe her for other symptoms, not alert, rash, or other symptoms in the next 1-2 d and see MD to check if these symptoms progress. ...Read more

Baby went to ER with a 104.0 temperature they send us home but in the way he got really cold sweats. Normal?

Baby went to ER with a 104.0 temperature they send us home but in the way he got really cold sweats. Normal?

Normal: Sweating is the body's way of cooling off. It's like being sprayed with water. So a person with fever who takes, for example, aspirin will start to sweat, and then his temperature drops. That also occurs during recovery from a fever without medicine. Of course, this answer does not address the CAUSE of the baby's fever. That requires medical evaluation. ...Read more

What could be the cause not being able to regulate temperature? In slight change of heat, extreme sweats occur, and very shiver if slightly cold temp

Hormonal: In a young person I would think about problems hormonally based having to do with glandular dysfunction as well as dysfunction that some medications can cause as side effects as applied to thermoregulatory systems of the body. There are other reasons as well but those would be 2 things I'd check out right away in someone your age. ...Read more

My face color turns to yellow and I start sweating alot but not because of the high temprature because my hands feels cold and my body is cold!!!

See doctor: Turning yellow is possibly a sign of liver disease. Please see a doctor as soon as possible to have blood tests done to make sure your liver is normal. As far as your hands and feet being cold when you are hot this happens in some people. Make sure you are drinking enough water, at least 2 liters per day and even more if you are in a hot environment. Avoid caffeine and alcohol. ...Read more

Sometimes I got blur while walking, sweating & can't breath enough, suddenly cold feet & hand. Someone said it's cause of low Suger in body? Advice pls

NOT low sugar: Hi. It would be nice to know your age and confirmation that you're not diabetic using insulin or sulfonylureas. However, proceeding along that assumption, hypoglycemia is WAY DOWN the list of considerations. Of course if you ARE a diabetic on insulin, shame on you for not telling us! What are your cardiac risk factors? I'd talk with your doctor about a cardiac stress test first and foremost. ...Read more

Cold&mild fever. Took Tylenol, (acetaminophen)4 hours later, I would not stop sweating. BP dropped really low idk ifmachine was false err from panic. Sepsis? BPnorm now.28

Not sepsis: Often times the presence of sweating is the sign of the fever "breaking". BP changes for various reasons but panic will usually cause increase in blood pressure. Surely sepsis will cause low BP but sepsis is a "hospital diagnosis" …you wouldn't be asking questions via the internet if you were septic. Hope this helps ...Read more

I've been experiencing low grade fevers of 99.6-101 F only at night for around 3 weeks accompanied by fatigue, cold chills and night sweats.

Something’s up.: While your symptoms are non-specific, they suggest that something is going on that deserves investigation. If you were only symptomatic like this for a few days, I could suggest a viral infection. But with three weeks of symptoms and significant fevers, you need an investigation into cause. ...Read more

Other causes: While abnormal thyroid function certainly can cause the symptoms you mention, there are other causes that could produce similar symptoms. At your listed age and sex, the first thing that comes to mind are symptoms related to menopause. You may want ot talk to doc about hormone replacement treatment, which can be dietary, medication or both. Also, discuss other possibilities as well. ...Read more

What besides thyroid can cause light head fluttering in chest hot an cold sweats an excess tiredness? I'm on Med for low tsh.

Check thyroid first: B"sd
If being on a med for "low TSH" means treatment with an antithyroid drug for hyperthyroidism, then the first concern is your thyroid status as this requires frequent monitoring. Thyroid function will change depending on the dose and effectiveness of the medication and the course of the underlying thryoid disease.
