Does anyone have a flare when their body gets overheated?

One of the ways I know if I am having a flare or about to, my body gets hot and my hair gets soaked with sweat either from housework or being outside, warm room. It causes me the inability to walk correctly I have to make myself stop what I am doing, sit on the couch with a glass of ice water. The water cools me down, but unfortunately, by then I feel so tired I don’t want to finish housework. Just wondering if anyone experiences this?

    I definitely get hotter during flare ups. It must be linked with inflammation I think. I’m flaring at the moment and I feel quite feverish at times, sometimes breaking out in a sweat doing relatively little

    Omg, I’m so happy to hear other people experience a type of hot flash when in a flare. I will even develop a low grade fever. I was beginning to think I was alone in this.

    @sharlene – Oh I’m so glad to hear this gave you some peace of mind, knowing you’re not alone in experiencing this symptom during a flare.
