Correct me please

I thought that if you were hypo that you were cold. Here is the deal, I had the thyroid removed Sept 27th, was put on levoxyl. didn't work for me. Switched to Armour 11/30/04 I am on 1gr a day 1/2 am 1/2 pm....I feel much better emotionaly but why am I having these ungodly hot periods? you could cook an egg on my broader than ever posterior.

(I had a total hystorectomy in a 2 part surgery but have not had to take any HRT for about 3 years now but theses are not flashes they areextended stay heats.)

Re: Correct me please

sheritap I have Hashi's and am considered hypo but I am hotter than the normal person. I am still wearing short sleeve shirts to work. Everyone in here is complaining that they are cold and have on long sleeve shirts or some have several layers. They push the heat above 70 and I am dieing in here!! They DO NOT want me to start taking my clothes off. I would not be a pretty site. I had the same problem at my sister's house at Thanksgiving. I was so hot I was getting dizzy and had to go sit outside. One of my sisters tried to claim that I was going through menopause I am only 38 so I don't think that is it. I have heard that hypo people are supposedly cold all the time. I guess there are exceptions to every rule.

Re: Correct me please

LOL, I don't know, but I get the same thing mainly at night, I too had a hysterctomy last March and was put on estridol, Most of the time I am cold, even if my thyroid levels are normal then 2 to 3 times a night, I get those awful hot flashes that don't flash at all they just keep going and going like the energizer bunny until I get up and walk around and that seems to stop them, I bet Meep or midwest1 might know the answer to this one.

Re: Correct me please

We don't all feel cold... as you've learned the hard way. I once heard it explained that thyroid problems cause the body's "thermostat" part of the hypothalamus to go all wonky (such a medical term, eh? ) Most hypos will feel cold, but a few will have the opposite problem, and some even waffle between hot and cold.
But you still can't eliminate your female hormones from the picture, either. All hormones work with and counter each other in mysterious - to me - ways.

Re: Correct me please

I'm hypo and I go from hot to cold on a daily basis in the winter. If I'm exerting myself in the least bit, I sweat. Everyone else can be cold and I feel like I'm standing next to a brick oven! I sweat all day at work. Then I come home and freeze my buns off.

Re: Correct me please

I just wanted to say thanks for sharing those comments! My daughter was recently diagnosed hypo but she too is usually hot. This kinda made me nervous but I feel better knowing that some others are the same way. From time to time she will complain of being cold but for the most part she's hot. She just started meds and I am a little nervous that if the meds "turn up" ones body temp. that she will be uncomfortable hot.??

Re: Correct me please

What the meds should do is help to enable her body temp to be more stabalized. It hasn't happened for me yet but my sweats aren't any worse than before.
