    Hot shower tightens skin?

    Hey. I've had a weird symptom develop and I'm wondering if anyone else has it too. I'm hypo from Hashi. I noticed that when I take a hot shower in the morning my skin where the water is hitting starts to feel tight. It isn't painful but it starts to feel like leather. When I move I can feel that patch of skin resist stretching and then eventually feel normal again. Has anyone experienced this? Is this a thyroid thing or a symptom of something else? Thanks.

    Hi David... I had that weird little symptom too, and it was muscle spasms. The muscles are tightening up right there...if you are experiencing the same. Kinda sounds like it. It would feel "hard" right there...the only way can describe it. Lots of oddball symptoms with this thing,..huh? Try not to worry too much.

    As your thyroid levels become improved it will feed those muscles too.... muscle symptoms are big with this disease. I was on muscle relaxants for a while, but they just didn't work for me. Only getting my levels in the right place and time to heal my body did. I'm great now. You will be someday too.
