Needle pricking sensation on skin surface when hot page 2 – general q and a forum – ehealthforum electricity word search answer key

Hello everybody. I wanted to chime in on this because this happened to me but more importantly, it shocks me that so many people’s doctors said that it was nothing to worry about. (it might be time to explore new doctors. i would worry about a doctor who says not to worry.)

This past summer here in NYC has been brutally hot. Needless to say, I was immersed in quite a bit of heat and humidity while sleeping. I avoided installing the a/c because I figured that the heat would break any day (like it has in the past) but it never did.

I first noticed the cold & goose bumps and the prickly heat at the gym where the a/c was not able to keep up with all of the gym rats. It started gradually but within a couple of weeks I was having these symptoms 2-3 times during my workout. And then I began to notice it slowly happening at home while I would be sitting, watching tv.

This got me concerned and so I began my research. It turns out that it was heat stress. My body’s internal thermostat was wonky from the heat and my body was having extreme difficulty in regulating my internal body temperature. Basically, my cooling mechanism was stuttering. Basic mechanisms, such as sweating, were not keeping me cool. And the symptoms were goosebumps, chills, and prickly heat.

The stinging/prickly sensation used to happen to me whenever my heart would start to pump faster or my temprature would rise. Whenever I went out in the sun or into a heated room the stinging/prickly senasation would begin. Also I seemed to have an innability to sweat, my skin was dry and I would often wake in the early hours of the morning with a burning feeling under my skin (especially on my face and back).

It got so bad that when summer was about to arrive in Australia I moved to England to cool off. To my horror everywhere in England had central heating…der!!!! I remember one day I went to the public library and the central heating was on, within 30 seconds I started to get the stinging prickly sensation which made my heart run faster which made it worse. I ran outside and started rolling around on the cold damp grass. Everyone was staring but I didn’t care, i had to do it.

His solution: RID BODY OF ALL TOXINS. I went on a kidney/liver cleanse diet that cleansed my body. No alcohol, cakes, biscuits, white bread etc for three months. Wola! All of a sudden these prickly sensations that I used to get (that I thought I’d have for ever) were gone.
