I find that whenever I am close to or on my menstrual cycle I get hot and overheated very easily. Like my body temp gets extremely sensitive to heat when I could normally tolerate it for longer?

I find that whenever I am close to or on my menstrual cycle I get hot and overheated very easily. Like my body temp gets extremely sensitive to heat when I could normally tolerate it for longer?

Just a theory....: During the second half of your menstrual cycle, your hormone levels are at their highest. You might be retaining fluid during this time. Hormone levels drop in the premenstrual period and the kidneys remove that excess fluid. If you're relatively dehydrated, you might be more susceptible to heat stress. Perhaps drinking extra fluids will help you tolerate heat better. ...Read more

My molar is extremely sensitive to heat for two weeks. I went to the dentist today and he saw nothing on the x-ray. He replaced the filling but it is still sensitive. What should I do?

Multiple causes but:: Heat sensitivity usually comes from 1 of 3 causes: pulpitis (infected/inflamed root canal), "high filling" or a crack in the root. The x-ray will be "negative" until the nerve "dies" or root fractures. If your dentist has replaced the filling (likely due to decay under the old one), then it is likely that the nerve is damaged. Have your dentist run diagnostics for root canal and cracked tooth. ...Read more
