Hot-flushed face when hypo?

Yesterday I started experienced something entirely new since going hypo following TT and RAI. Several times during the day and evening my face would suddenly feel hot or flushed. This would last for a few minutes, maybe 5 or 10, and then it would go away.

I had assumed this would be a hyper symptom, not hypo; if I have suddenly become hyper I totally missed the "normal" feeling that should have occured along the way. Maybe it happened while I was asleep.

Can this be part of the hypo experience and not necessarily an indicator that I am now hyper? If I'm suddenly hyper I got cheated!

I hate it when I get cheated! Especially of a "feel good" period! LOL!

Have you had your levels checked recently? That might shed some light on it for you.

Re: Hot-flushed face when hypo?

i'm hypo and i get that too. seems that some symptoms for hyper and hypo 'cross over'. i'm hypo and cannot tolerate heat, which is usually a hyper symptom.

Re: Hot-flushed face when hypo?

I got my endo to move the first tests up by about 3 weeks. They drew the blood this AM so I don't have the results yet.

Every other symptom suggests I'm still hypo so maybe it's just a cross-over symptom after all.
