Last night I was feeling fine all day, and when I laid down at around 3:00 a.m., I got this odd sense of hunger. It's the type that makes you feel like you're going to be sick, but there's no stomach pain associated, just the tight feeling. Eventually, it turned into the chills and shaking. After about an hour of getting the the shower, then getting out, then using the heater and laying down, I was able to sleep.
Today I woke up feeling fine. I got really cold around 10:00 p.m. to the point that I could not get warm, even with blankets and a heater. Eventually that faded and I was ok.
Now, at 2 a.m. I have the hunger sick feeling, and am really cold again. I'm not shaking as much as last night, but still shaking a little.
I'm eating a piece of bread right now, slowly :<
Just so no one questions it, I do eat a normal amount every day, and not just my definition of normal.
Can anyone help?
Oh and just to add:
I also haven't gotten my period. I don't know if that's relevant. I am not pregnant, and there's no way I could be pregnant.
Re: Weird sick feeling, chills, and shaking, no fever
I've been having the chills/sweats routine for the last week. Unlike most people I have found with this on the web, I am a man, so I am pretty sure it is not related to any "woman issues" (as my wife so politely calls them every month as I try to help her out). I would guess mine are due to a recent change in my thyroxine dosage for hypothyroidism. In the last six month interval my TSH level went from a 2.3 to a 32. The doctor upped my dosage from 150 mcg/day to 200 mcg/day and I expect this is part of the adjustment period. I usually have adjustment periods with new dosages, but this one seems pretty severe. For full disclosure I am also being monitored for diabetes progression as my A1C has gone from a 5.9-6.3 in this last six months also (even with Metformin, exercise [just finished a triathlon] and some diet).
My suggest is have your doctor check your thyroid.
