    Hot flashes during warmup

    Why is it that whenever i start warming up before i lift or if i start doing any type of exercise for that matter ... ie: raking leaves, moving furniture, etc. i always get very itchy all over my body when i start to sweat. It drives me crazy but it goes away after 5 minutes or so once i really start to sweat and get accustomed to it.

    I believe thats referred to as menopause.


    Allergies?

    I know hot flashes are generally common for only women but i don't know how else to describe it. Whenever i began to sweat once i start doing exercise, i start to itch like crazy all over for 5 minutes.

    It may be allergies but i dont know

    Including gym exercises, or jsut those things around the house? Caould be a contact or airborne allergy to dust or mold that you kick up once you start moving stuff

    I also get this sometimes(itchy part). Never in the gym though. Usually happens when I don't shower and go outside and walk around after lounging around all day.

    No, it's not that. What i mean is when i get to the gym, i will do a warmup which i normally do 5 minutes jogging on the treadmill followed by dynamic and flexibility stretching. Afterwards, i will start to do warmup sets of squats, deads, bench or whatever and from the time i start sweating when i jog until i start doing my first lift, i itch all over like crazy. But it goes away once i really start to sweat and my body gets used to it.

    Also, i was outside raking leaves in the cold and i had a sweatshirt and hat on. After 5-10 minutes of raking, i started to sweat a little and the itchiness occurred. So, i took off my sweatshirt and hat but it was still bothering me for another 5 minutes until it finally went away. I am just curious why i itch so bad once i began to sweat whenever i do some sort of physical activity.

    I'd go see your doctor about this. It's probably nothing serious, but he'll probably know what to do.

    Wait a minute, this shit did always happen to me. Happens to me during a warm up, before working on the car, anytime I get stressed from family or girlfriends, yeah, I know its like.

    I usually got it on my head. I would scratch intensely on the back of my head and think Id need some head & shoulders, but once I started sweating, it went away.

    I get it rarely now...I dont know what I ate or did differently to stop it.

    No reason to not go to the doctor. It sounds like a light case of allergies. Have you changed up anything as of late? A new diet? New furniture? New clothes?

    I have not changed anything at all. This has always been an issue since i was little. I didn't get it ALL the time but every once in a while i just get itchy when i start to sweat in the beginning but it always went away after 5 minutes. It's nothing severe that would cause me to go get checked out by a doctor.

    All i want to know is why i get itchy when once i start to sweat ... especially when it's cold outside.

    Don't worry it's nothing.

    I get this all the time too. Usually when doing squat.

    All it is, is pressure from holding your breath and blood leaving certain areas.
    That's why it starts on your head.

    I get the same thing also, I actually get it when my skin is dry.

    I don't agree with this because I get itchy just doing normal activity outside.
