This may seem like a strange question, but before I got back to my doctor for another thyroid test I thought I'd ask. My thyroid test was normal one year ago, but the symptoms I complained about then have gotten worse. Sorry for the long post!

First, on the hypo side, I am cold almost all the time. It gets proressive worse during the day, and by night I am wrapped in blankets. I did the thyroid basal body temperature thing, and I was consistently at 97 degrees. Second, I am tired (despite 8-9 hours of sleep a night) and some days seriously lack ambition. I am normally a fidgety person who likes to be busy all the time.

But on the hyper side, I have many days where I am hungry a lot but I don't gain weight. In fact, my weight finally stabalized this past spring after an unexpected weight loss (which is why I went to the doctor in the first place).

And one thing I haven't found anywhere as a symptom is my excessive thirst.

I guess what I am asking is whether or not this even sounds like a thyroid problem before I go to the doctor.

Thanks for any help...
