Constant disturbing hunger

Hi, I know there are quite similar/related posts here but I'm pretty sure my cas is different. Am about 5'11" and 184lbs, quite lean, eating 80-90% paleo for about 4 month or so. I don't exercise more then 3 day a week, and my weeks are quite different as I sometimes work till very late and due to my studying I sometimes wake up quite early. Ever since I remember myself I was eating a lot. Never been fat. During the last 2 month or so I feel I'm even hungrier than before. My hunger is much more intense and frequent. I feel my stomach stick to my back and even "heat" from inside. I eat lots of fat and protein. Besides that, and I think it is related somehow, I feel warm most of the time. I'll start sweating if it isn't below 20-C. My hunger really bathers me as I can't really do any thing without thinking how much I need to eat. Would like to hear your insights or someone that got thru this kind of hunger.

Thank you all very much, D

Do you drink plenty of water/fluids? Although it could be something more serious, many times people just don't focus on their fluid intake (especially when leading a busy life)

You should go see a doctor. You're symptoms are consistent with forms of hyperthyroidism.

Go. To. The. Doctor.

Considering you're quite lean, I'm kind of confused why you aren't just eating more?

Sleep deprivation is bound to make you hungrier, but like greymouser said, you should go to the doctor. Better safe than sorry!
