when i'm hitting a severe depression, my skin is painful, like bad flu. I daren't touch my skin as it might hurt. I also boil. I am mildly depressed at the moment and i get very hot, especially when walking around. People are in rain macs today, and i am boiling up in a summer dress. Is this normal? It has always happened i think so cannnot surely be hot flushes, and my thyroid has been checked but that could've changed or it may not be showing up on the test.

Hi Cinders.

I get very hot when I'm anxious, and sometimes when I'm depressed. Not experienced the painful skin you mention though. I guess we all can react differently to it.

Maybe mention it to your GP and see if he thinks you need any of the tests you mention again, to be sure.

Best wishes

On the internet it does mention warmth along with anxiety but not depression. You have it too though you say. I wonder how common it is.

Yes I wonder.
Although In my opinion anxiety and depression are so close together, sometimes it's hard to tell which one I'm getting hot about...
Hope you have a peaceful evening.

I get hot and bothered when anxious and also find if hard to distinguish between anxious and depressed. I am also one who usually feels better in the evening - a mixed blessing as it gives me more energy which means I stay up too late doing stuff and then don't get enough time to sleep and then get tired and then......

Have you thought it could be signs of the menopause. I dont know how old you are but some people get signs of menopause quite early. I get it in the menopause but also get it if anxious or worried

I did think early menopause but I'm too young but also I've been getting this with my depressions for many years. It's very strange.

I get overheated very much, have always connected it to anxiety more than depression but I do get the skin sensations at times, dread the feel of things on my skin.
It feels as though I can't get the right temperature.
But.....there are several factors for me, I do have hypothyroidism so poor temp control, I cover up due to scarring that I want to hide, and lastly but importantly I'm obese. I connect my feeling too hot to that.
This probably isn't helpful, sorry, but I can relate to the feeling, its annoying xx

When I was in my 30s and had post natal depression several times I used to find that sweating was a real problem especially at work. So could be a normal side effect
