hot flushed face, chills...any new thoughts?

Hey everyone!

While my stomach strangeness (mainly continual indigestion like symptoms) continues (seeing doctor on Tuesday -- have been living on rice, avocado and banana for 13 days -- I've lost 14 pounds since starting the T4, I don't recommend this method of weight loss! ) today yet another new thing happened -- my face (mainly cheeks although it feels hot everywhere) got flushed and really really hot, meanwhile my hands and feet remain cold and I'm chilled. I don' t have a fever (I'm still in the 96 degree range) and I am hypo, just over one month on meds (T4 (couldn't take the Armour, sent me though the roof) total of about 16mcg a day). I'm not yet near menopause.

Any thoughts / insights / stories would be most appreciated.

Thank you!

Re: hot flushed face, chills...any new thoughts?

When I took Armour I think it also sent me "through the roof". I was sure the addition of T3 would be the answer to my lingering hypo. symptoms (acheness expecially shoulders, hair loss, fatigue, digestion issues); however the pounding heart, jitters etc. that I experienced while on Armour were worse than the symptoms I was trying to get rid of with the addition of T3. I am so dissapointed that it did not work! So like you, I am now back on T4 (Synthroid) only.

When I first went on thyroid meds several years ago (I was having no problems with meno symptoms) but symptoms such as yours bothered me until I stablized on my synthroid dosage. It took me about 6-8 weeks to stablized and I started to feel better. I currently am nearly 53 and definately menopausal. The "hot flash" issues I experience now are definately different than the "facial flushing" problems I had then. I don't know if what I experienced is the same as yours but thought I'd reply with a similar experience. For me it cleared up with a little time. Good luck to you at your doctor appointment. Hopefully your doctor can give you some good advise.
