When hypothyroid, is getting cold easy always a symptom??? Because even though I have just about all the symptoms that go with being hypo-, I am almost never cold. In fact, winter is my favorite time of the year. If anything, I am almost always hot, kinda like hot flashes.
I'm hypo, and I was alwys cold, with hot flashes occassionally (before HRT and menopause) and it seemed like just an inablity to have a steady body temperature. I was intolerant of heat and cold and had hot and cold flashes for years.
Now that I have begun TD treatment, I feel like there is hope that my temperature will stabilize. And it has somewhat, I no longer get the cold flashes as often.
Intolerance to cold is a common side effect, but you don't have to have all the classic symptoms. I don't have the constipation or the high cholesterol that often accompanies HypoT, but I have the others.
Also, some of us will fluctuate between hypo and hyper symptoms; I get very cold easily but I also get very hot and flushed at times. I like it to be a comfortable 20C, anything hotter or colder and I am not comfortable.
A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds.
