3. Temperature Change Intolerance
Changes in the way your body reacts to external temperatures is a potential infection and illness symptom that you should always be aware of. Sometimes it can signal the presence of a fever or the potential build-up to one, but it can also mean that you are suffering with an infection or chronic condition that interferes with the body’s natural temperature sense.
If you experience a sudden intolerance to hot or cold temperatures together with other symptoms on this list (and specifically with night sweats, a fever and a cough that lasts for several weeks), it could mean that you are at risk of having contracted tuberculosis and the first recommendation is to have yourself tested for it immediately.
If you experience temperature intolerance in the absence of any other characteristic TB symptoms, it can mean a chronic condition is causing it. It’s still recommended to see your doctor if this is the case!
