Excessive body heat (not a fever)

Patient

Q: For years now, I have been so hot. My body temperature isn't exactly higher than the "average" 98.6, but I always feel so hot and I am quicker to sweat when going out into a hot day than a normal person. Just sitting down I gradually become hotter. I touch someone's arm and they day "Let go, you're hot." I go barefoot on the tile floor in winter, and always throw my blankets off me in my sleep. I don't have a thyroid problem, and it's impossible to have hyperchondria or a fever for this long. Also, they're not hot flashes because I'm hot all the time. I'm only 18 years old, and I'd really like to have a name for this, and a reason.
