Question Asked:

"Good Afternoon Doctor. I have severe internal hotness of the body, which most ppl call internal heat and it started after I had unprotected sex last yr january. This is d 3rd time am stating this problem on this platform without getting any useful help, instead am always being asked repeatedly the same questions I explicitly address in my texts like: ''hav u been having this heat steadily for a yr?'' which I said YES. Also I was asked whether I hav any cough, weight loss, sweating, fever, lower abdominal pain, difficulty urinating. And I said ''NO''. Infact Doctor, like I've always stated hitherto here, I DO NOT HAVE ANY OTHER SYMPTOMS. At least not yet, except for the very very very occasional headaches I xperience which I suppose is normal for me cos it happens only when am hungry. Please Doctor for d sake of humanity and d sacrosanctity of your profession which is a call to save lives. Cut to d chase and tell me what drugs I can take to cure this infection responsible 4 d internal heat am suffering from or if d heat is a disease in itself, tell me what drugs to take to cure it. It maybe, as I presume, against ur professional ethics to prescribe drugs outrightly by telediagnosis or without any medical test results. But pls, if 4 nothing else, just let this my case b an unprecedented exception. Am begging u in d name of God and/or watever else u hold dear to ur heart or reverence. Help me cos am writing this from how terrible my condition is and becomes by each passing day. I feel psychologically incapacitated and distressed by this seemingly inexplicable tormentous feeling of hotness inside my body which occurs continuously throughout d day irrespective of d prevailing weather conditions or my surface body temperature. I've treated malaria and typhoid. But since am wary of d likely risks of self-medication, I would hav opted 4 herbal concoctions as am being told by some ppl I've spoken to, that internal heat is a disease gotten through sexual contact with an infected partner. I even got a hint that d heat could be due to 'hyperthyroidism' or hormonal imbalance; but in as much as that could be d case, am over 70% convinced in my spirit, soul and body that it isn't a thyroid problem since d heat didn't just start at any other time but almost immediately after d unprotected sex I stupidly and ignorantly indulged in, unless maybe an infection (sexual assumably) triggered d thyroid problem. If I had a choice I would have visited a specialist hospital and undergone any tests possible and necessary but I've got no choice right now cos am as money-less as d real meaning of d word and it's no joke cos I dnt have any money 4 hospital that's y am here. My economy is at an all-time low. PLEASE HELP ME! B4 it gets worse than it already is. Please Doctor...save me frm this so I can lead a normal life again. Thanks for ur response"

    There is no std called internal heat. Did you have any history of painless sore, ulcer,penile discharge, rash, warts or pain when urination. Any weight loss, hx of diabetics, whats ur dietary pattern? What's your personality like? Are u the anxious type? Being in charge?Any anterior neck swelling? palpitations? Was that your first intercourse without condom? Have u done such again? What's your relationship to the lady in person,gf, acquaintance or a fling? kindly let me know
