Get cold easily and sweat easily...huh?
I have noticed over the course of my life that I am pretty sensitive to both hot and cold. I often am freezing cold if the heat is below 70, to the point where I start to shake; sometimes, not even a sweatshirt or an electric blanket turned up to the highest setting will help.
On the other hand, I seem to sweat very very easily. For example, I went out walking today in a t-shirt. It was only about 55 out and I was freezing cold. But once I started to walk for a while, I began to sweat. My back was drenched after about ten minutes of walking (not uphill).
I know that hypothyroid people have intolerance to cold, and hyperthyroid people have trouble handling the heat. Why in the world do I feel both? For the record, I had a TSH test and my results came back "acceptable", so I guess that means I am not hypo.
What could possibly make me feel these sensitivities to both hot and cold? It's very strange.
